Cleaning up our eating patterns?
In recent days, we arrived home from a three-week trip to the Pacific Northwest, etc. It gave us time to break some less healthy eating habits. I was able to "kick"diet Pepsi, for example; it does not seem appetizing to me.
I met a lady, aged about 75, who brimmed with vibrant health, eager for active sports and very energetic. She swears by cutting out gluten. (which means bread, most of the time.)
Another person I met minimizes sugar and starch, making sure to get enough protein and "good" fats.
The example shown above is a "grain bowl", which I imitated from a recipe in a magazine: a little oatmeal, some wilted garden greens, maybe a sauteed tomato, a fried egg and some garnish. It's tasty.
Can't give up coffee. Don't ask me too!
One of our home grown potatoes seemed to smile at me as it was readied for cook pot.
