It just hit me. Our Grandparents, and relatives, that lived into their 70's, 80's and 90's didn't eat... Read more
Eyes wide open
Today was a turning point for me. I watched the Oprah show. I was blown away, by the way they raise the animals to provide the food for our tables, and fast food, and restaurants.

We are not all in that same fishbowl, we choose to swim on our own.
Admit it our Country is lazy. We all wanted the quick fixes and the model body's. Kirstie (Jenny Craig) and others like her are not good role models for those of us that want to lose this weight with no props. She and Oprah, and people like t... Read more

Remembering the food from yesteryear, when Grandma cooked the Holiday meal
I think this is what is going to save me from the Holidays. Food doesn't taste like it used to.
The only thing that still has the same flavor, is the Turkey. But everything else, isn't as tasty or as rich, as my Grandma used to make it.
