  • Ever so glad to see you back Chef. After our conversation Friday I hoped, but I also know the challenges.

    Diet changes? I should have STUCK to many of the ones I tried over the years, but a shelf of all kinds of delights sits right around the corner from my desk and as one feels bad, they feel the need to have just one reward, then two, ah what the heck I might as well finish it.

    I was two pounds shy of my wedding weight, but now have 12 pounds to recapture the magic number. Then I forge ahead to my college graduation weight but probably never my wrestling weight in High School, which is where the charts say I should be. HA!

    I look forward to your health recipes 'cause I know you will work hard to keep taste in the very front of all you do.

  • Thanks Steve;

    Recipes will always be on my mind! I am a major meal planner but, now in a different recipe, heart healthy, direction. I stopped before this past Christmas keeping anything with a calorie or fat gram in the house so I'm not tempted. If it's not even in the house it's not there to look at! At present you won't find any processed food items here either! Seems the nitrates and added inedible ingredients in food today causes me other issues like swollen feet and although this country boy don't mind going barefoot, on occasion I have to be able to get my foot into my shoe!

    I have been a weighted guy since I got back from college and then culinary training added a moderate amount which I seemed to stay at for many years. However health issues are the culprit now and have been for the last couple years.

    It's not the inactivity that seems to be keeping weight on me! Even at a 1,200 caloric intake down from about almost 3,000 a day I'm loosing vary slow because of one of the medicines I have to be on. One of its side effects is definitely weight gain so, with me it's a harder battle I seem to be fighting.

    Normally my blog topics have centered around food because of my chef training and career but religious studies and other topics have been on my mind lately along with the little gardening I do. Speaking of gardens....it's almost time to stick some tomato plants in the ground!

  • Getting close. I wonder if the hat generated by a straw bale garden would be enough to protect an early planted tomato?

    Our daughter started tomatoes a few weeks ago under lights. This reminds me that I have not heard progress lately although she has been doing time-lapse videos on other seedlings. No matter how many times I see video like this,I'm fascinated by how much goes on while we are away.

    Religious studies could spark some interesting conversations. I've backed off controversial topics lately, not that religion should be, but usually is controversial.

  • BY the way, "hat" in my last post should have an "e" before the "a". I have not seen too many hats generated by straw bales. Maybe none.

  • I just got an e-mail from an old friend out of town who saw the title of your post, "Inedible Change," and wondered if you meant "Inevitable." I told him I thought you were making a play on words, based on the fact that you're now cutting back on certain foods.
