I like to have salads with dinner with three or more different vegetables, and a homemade low-fat vinegrette made out of balsamic vinegar, garlic, dijon mustard, thyme, salt, pepper, and a little bit of olive oil -- yum!

Make food look appetizing and enjoy the flavor of it. Yesterday for lunch I had a small grilled Salmon steak with a maple syrup and cherry glace, with steamed broccoli it was so good and looked beautiful on the plate.

A lot of food is healthy and thrifty and makes me happier in the long term. A lot of food is delicious and indulgent and makes me happier in the short term. I'm grateful for both of these. I'm especially grateful that some food falls in *both* categories -- strawberries just came into season where I am. Wow.

Also, there are too many people in the world and in my country and even my city who don't have enough to eat, certainly not enough to be sure of healthy food every night. I'm reminded to make a deposit at the food bank.

I'm working on eating FOOD. Real food. Not processed or packaged or sprayed with pesticides or with sugar added or with fat taken out. Eating FOOD makes me feel so much better than eating the other stuff.

Last night for dessert I had the most amazing pear. That's all. Food.

I hope I get this right, from Michael Pollan: don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize. Eat real food, not too much, mostly plants.

I'm having a V8 juice snack with crushed ice right now and it is delicious! It's fun to make my plates and food appealing at meals. My "boys" who don't so healthy sometimes see my plates and say "that looks really good'.

Is a sensory delight---taste, smell, the atmosphere. Good food in moderation is one of the greatest joys of life. I thank God for it. We have so much in this country; sometimes it's hard to believe that getting enough of it is a challenge for a good portion of our world's population.

There's nothing as good as fresh, unprocessed foods. I don't know about you, but I always feel better and am more energetic when I stick with "fresh!"

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Healthy food is the fuel my body needs to look great and function well. When food is doing its job in your body, it is digested, it becomes energy you use, and then it is gone. Food is NOT meant to remain with you "in storage."

Food is our primary connection to nature - we put nature inside ourselves and nature nourishes us through that connection. The more natural our food, the closer to nature we are.

PS: I love pizza. Wheat from the fields, tomatoes from the vines, mushrooms from the soil, olives ripe from the sun, cheese from a friendly cow - delicious gifts, all! Chew slowly, appreciate the work it took the soil to grow the wheat, the work of the farmer who threshed the grain, the work of every hand who touched it before yours.

I think I have a leg up here, to be honest, because a primary meditation in Buddhism is mindful eating.

Everything we need is within - your body is the lock, your spirit is the key.

Food is one of the great sensual pleasures of life. There is no way that I am going to deny myself the joys of a perfect piece of chocolate, or ignore the smell of bacon frying. But there is as much sensual pleasure to be found in a juicy ripe peach, or a tomato warm off the vine. The goal, for me, is moderation and mindful eating. A perfect piece of chocolate, yes, half a bag of M&Ms because I am bored, no.

I so often hear people --women especially-- defining themselves and the food they eat using all kinds of negative thoughts and language. The one that really gets me is "I was BAD last night because I ate pizza" or "I was good this weekend because I didn't eat any of the cake at my friend's birthday party". I for one, refuse to define my self worth based on what I eat. Instead, I like to focus on all the wonderful things about food and eating like:

*The food I eat keeps me healthy and strong."

What positive statement can you make about food? I'd love to hear!
