I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae
to the team! I have been working my way to clean eating for a few months now and can't ever imagine eating some of the foods I was brought up on.. I feel so much better eating whole foods. Have fun with the Vitamix..
many smiles to you, debbie
I have started back here in Feb 2012 after putting some weight back on. I lost 114lbs here previously and I now know I need this community and the food tracker to keep me in check.

Hello! I've been on SP for awhile but haven't really done much with it. I'm trying to get more involved with the hope that it will keep me motivated and accountable. :)
On the whole food front; we've been slowly adding more and more whole foods to our family's diet for a few years. I grind all of our flour fresh from whole grain berries (wheat, rye, barley, etc). I cook most of our food from scratch including all of our bread and baked goods. In the grain department we've been doing well eating the whole food.
My birthday is this week and my dh bought me a Vitamix as my gift! I'm so excited and I've been grinding up anything I can think of in there. lol We've always loved smoothies and soups but I've killed many blenders and maimed my Bosch blender attachment repeatedly. We're hoping the Vitamix can keep up with me. :)
Anyway, I'm excited to have found this team and I look forward to more ideas (and continued motivation) for keeping up the whole food streak in our lifestyle. After all that blending yesterday I had more energy than I knew what to do with and I want to keep it up!
