I experience an extraordinary, borderline silly amount of joy whenever I see oddly-colored vegetables. Years back, when this blog was much younger, I had a streak where I was finding oddly-colored vegetables all over the place.

What am I eating?
Yes, it’s a cucumber, and yes, I’m eating it whole, like an apple. Gotta eat smart while on the road!
I went on my longest road trip in over a decade last week, to go to Read the rest of this entry »

How was your turkey day? Mine was wonderful – lots of family, laughs, and great food. And abiding by the rules of my annual pledge helped guide me through the day without overeating or going into a food coma! I did break a couple rules, though, in minor ways, and I’ll get to that. But first, let’s talk Turkey Trot!
One of my Thanksgiving rules is to exercise before the big meal. This year, for the sixth time, I Read the rest of this entry »
