California trip: sometimes you just have to punt (part 1 of 2)

When I went to CA last week (Thurs. through Mon.) with my daughters, I was hard pressed to get all my work done before I left. I was up very late the night before we left for the airport and consequently didn’t have any time to think about how to get through five days eating […]

raw almonds and 15 other items in upcoming group buy

Newsflash, this blog was hacked into late last week, and I’m sorry you couldn’t read or post comments. It took my webmasters a little while to figure it out, THANKS CHRIS AND RITESH!, but it’s fixed now. The downside is, everyone has to re-register and get a new password. Sorry about that. But please do, […]

a bunch of random things

Locals in Utah County, at Sunflower Market right now, whole pitted dates in the bins are $2.79/lb., good price.   I love their produce, too, by the way (the candy section and the fact that they sell pork is really inexplicable, but . . . whatever).   Organic apples continue to be $0.99 at Good […]

best green drink

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl:   I bought a green drink powder once that was supposed to be really good for me, but I stopped drinking it because the nutrition label basically stated there was no nutritional value —which made me wonder if I was benefiiting from the drink at all–even though it was supposed to be made […]

back from Costa Rica: can you eat well there?

I am back from Costa Rica.   It was supposed to be a 7-day trip, using Delta buddy passes given to me (very inexpensively) by a friend.   Unfortunately at the end of our trip, we spent THREE DAYS in the airport trying unsuccessfully to get out of Costa Rica until I finally bought both […]

Reflecting on nutrition, food storage, and hard economic times

what did we pack/eat in Europe . . . part 2 of 2

For lunch, we’d stop at a market and buy something like this every day: 1.           6 nectarines 2.           6 large carrots (I never saw baby carrots in Europe) 3.           A loaf of whole grain bread (a comedy of communication errors […]
