A Summer Breakfast Swiss Chard Colorful swiss chard at the farmers market looks so beautiful! How can a food that looks that pretty be edible as well as nutritious? When I looked up this vegetable to learn about the nutrition, The World’s Healthiest Foods website suggests that only the white stems are good to eat. However, I stir fry the colored stems, too, and they are excellent cooked that way. I discovered other recipes of Swiss chard with a variety of ways to cook the stems as well as the leaves and colored stems such as these websites: poorandglutenfree.blogspot.com – I love Poor and Gluten Free’sRead More →

Having trouble losing weight? If you have tried to lose weight and the scales say the same thing they always say or even creep up a little, don’t give up trying. For months, I’ve been stuck on the same thing and really wanted to drop some pounds off. A couple months ago, I visited my daughter and her family. When I’m there, I like to cook for them and make special things for my little granddaughters. Well, I guess I indulged too much on the goodies (and I wasn’t even baking on that visit). My clothes started to fit uncomfortably. By the time I cameRead More →

Welcome to Over-the-Road (OTR) blogging! Pictures not looking like they should on your iPhone or home computer? Not a problem. When I get a chance to blog on steady ground, no bouncing, no “NO SERVICE”, I’ll remedy the situation. In the meantime, please come on board with me for a few moments to read about my OTR breakfast. Breakfast began today with coffee purchased at a truck stop. The truck stop had a Dairy Queen which does not offer breakfast on their menu. Sorry, Dairy Queen, you didn’t make a sale off of us this morning. Perhaps you should consider adding breakfast. Dairy Queen goes backRead More →

This morning I had eggs, bacon, and grits. It’s a Susannah Mushatt Jones type of breakfast. And since she lived to 116, it must be a good way to start out every day. Do you like grits with butter, salt, and pepper or with sugar? If I’m going to eat a hot cereal, Cream of Wheat and sugar sounds better to me. However, I remember eating rice as cereal (with sugar and milk) when I was little. Then my family moved to the Gulf Coast where people eat rice for just about every meal except breakfast. They serve the rice with gravy. I got usedRead More →

Chili Vegetable Omelet Breakfast began today with protein plus. A day that begins with protein makes me feel less hungry. Do you eat eggs and vegetables for breakfast, or do you opt for oatmeal and fruit? Which is best? Opinions vary about whether or not carbohydrates should be included in breakfast. Friends joke about the eggs that I eat. You can browse this blog and see that I love to eat eggs. But they’re nutritious. It seems that I’m not the only one with this opinion. Ines Subashka, a certified personal trainer at inspiredfitstrong.com favors eating eggs early in the day – seven to eight eggs.Read More →

Yes, that happened yesterday. That meant no cooking. First thought was that the lightbulb in the lamp beside me went out. I’ll fix that I thought, reaching over to turn another lamp on. I looked at the clock. ItRead More →
