Always learning

Today’s lunch was a splurge at Island Naturals: salad, cooked pumpkin, some steamed veggies and even a little tofu. I don’t know how they made it taste so good, but if I could figure it out, I’m betting Hawea would actually embrace “the healthy shit”. (And if you know her at all, you know I […]

She’s at it again: seafood linguine

Last night, Vea made a dinner that blew us away: shrimp, scallops, Italian sausage, and mushrooms, cooked in a white wine / cream sauce and served over linguine and spinach. Along with a garlicky, buttery toasted bread and a fresh salad, it was a trip to tastebud heaven. 🙂 My culinary efforts aren’t nearly as […]

Fish and pickled beets

Did I grab your attention with that title? That’s what we had for dinner tonight, and as I was doing dishes I couldn’t help but laugh. It just sounds so gross! In reality, it was okay. Vea added slivered almonds to the sole, and the beets were my last minute addition. She wants it on […]

My body seems to be liking an assortment of fruits, cooked vegetables, eggs, small portions of meat, and fish. Almond butter is […]

It was a wonderful birthday!

Intuition leads to balance

Yesterday was a pretty perfect food day, according to how my body felt by the end of it, and into this morning. It seems like a variety of mostly cooked veggies with small amounts of fruit and meat throughout the day is a good one. I ate everything pictured below – except for the slice […]

The last of the holiday food :)

Before we get too far out from the holidays, I wanted to share some of the things we’ve been munching on around here lately.  I find myself wondering if my family back home would eat or avoid most of this stuff…. It’s a lot different than puppy chow, nachos, little smokies and soda – the […]
