Farmers Market Salad

August 8, 2011

Having scored a bounty of fresh produce at the local Sunday Farmers Market I decided to take a stab at putting some of the vegetables together in an attempt at a bit of a salad, roast vegetable combo. The result was tasty and healthy, but certainly more work than I would want out of a [...]


Sunday Morning Farmers Market

August 7, 2011
Farmer's Market

Took a quick trip to the local Farmers Market this morning. For the most part our market is just vegetables, there isn’t a vast array of fruit sold here, probably first because I’m in Minnesota and not California, and second because the season may not be just right. Or our market stinks. Whatever the case, [...]


A New Subway Sandwich

January 13, 2011

As you have probably noticed if you have paid attention to any of the pictures I have posted in the past about the meals I eat I do get out to Subway quite a bit. Maybe once or twice a week. Like any other restaurant there are good choices and there are bad choices. When [...]


How to Eat a Persimmon

November 27, 2010

A few weeks ago I bought a persimmon at the grocery store. I didn’t know anything about persimmons but they were in the exotic fruit section of the produce area and I like to try new things so I bought one. The persimmon I bought felt ripe to me (it had a nice slight give [...]


Diving into Breakfast

November 6, 2010

Managed to sleep in a little bit today which felt good, but I’m still dogging it health wise. Writing this at night after getting back from watching our high school girl’s volleyball team win their sectional championship 3 games to 2 after falling behind 2 games to 1 so that was pretty exciting. But now [...]


Glad For The Weekend

November 5, 2010
Tomato omelet

Thankfully, it’s the weekend. Still trying to shake this cold, or whatever it is. It’s certainly resulted in less sleep this week than I would like. Kids don’t have any activities in the morning so I should be able to sleep in. This morning I made a 3 egg omelet with sliced baby tomatoes that [...]

Packed a Lunch Again

November 2, 2010
Bento Box Lunch

Today didn’t start off very well. I’ve been nursing some kind of cold the last few weeks where I seem to for the most part be OK during the day but struggle at night. When I’m horizontal something builds up in my throat and I start to hack and cough. Tough to sleep. Even tougher [...]


Bento Box Lunch

November 1, 2010
Bento Box Lunch

Almost one full day into November and I would say the month is off to a pretty good start. I managed to stay away from the house on Halloween last night, and I’ve avoided the leftover Halloween candy we still have left. We gave away full-sized candy bars except to the kids who pulled up [...]

4 Tricks for Halloween Treats

October 28, 2010
Halloween Candy

Halloween is coming up in a few days and for many of us this signals the beginning of what can be a disastrous time for our weight loss plans. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years - it seems like there are just so many excuses to over-indulge during the next few months. I always enjoyed Halloween [...]
