My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy, happy, sexy, fit and slim...all the good stuff.

My Program:
I was a vegetarian for more than 34 years, but in July 2009 I started eating a low fat, no junk vegan diet. This is probably the best thing I ever did to improve my health and I lost my excess weight. Guess you could say I'm full of beans now ... so here's a tip on how to cook beans from scratch so that they won't cause excess gas. Start with dry beans, rinse and soak them overnight using a pinch of baking soda per quart (or liter) of water. Drain and rinse the beans and add fresh water before cooking. If you see foam forming as the beans cook, scrape it off and toss it. If you still have a problem with gas, change the water again after the beans have been cooking for a few minutes. Cook the beans until they are tender. Keep in mind if you are just beginning to incorporate beans into your regular diet, your body needs a little time to adjust... you won't be an old gasbag forever.

Perhaps a heron family will take up residence at Sapsucker Pond this spring.

Thank you for the good wishes and for the suggestion to update my mom-and-son-shoes picture! He's my walking buddy these days so that's a great idea. I think we'll take one on January 1. :)

I read your comments on the moringa question on one of the SP forums and I have to compliment you on your writing! You're very funny. I'm sure you already know that. Have a great day!
