Vegetarian Whole Wheat Barbecue Pizza Pita- that's my breakfast today. It's good with chicken or beef, too, but I don't happen to have any on hand right now. I love Barbecue Pizza, but it tends to be super expensive as a specialty dish - and c... Read more

I'm sure we've all heard that we need to eat more veggies. Dealing with food allergies, forever hungry and exhausted, plagued with the the most stubborn body fat, I'm always trying to figure out what I need to 'fix' to help me be the skinny and... Read more

Not sure what it is, but it's loaded with veggies! When I clean out the fridge, freezer, and cupboards, I tend to make a big pot of Chef's Surprise. It's a little bit different, every time and when I have eaten enough, I freeze what's le... Read more
Part Time Detox

Overcoming an injury or illness is NOT easy! Old school says "no pain, no gain". Old school is dangerously wrong! It's been a long time coming, but as long as my ankle and my lungs can behave, I'm back into running! It's been a very long tim... Read more
