Another great tip from my colleague!

Check this out! My colleague — one of the ones with whom I routinely talk food — sent this to me after I sat through the faculty luncheon scarfing down beets! It’s amazing; I used to hate beets when I was a kid, but they are currently one of my favorite foods. I think the sugar in them helps stave off my cravings for less healthy sweets!

I’m actually doing pretty good according to this particular list of healthy food. I routinely eat beets, I love cinnamon, and I drink goji and pomegranate juice every morning. I also use blueberries frequently in smoothies, I often put turmeric in when I cook Indian food at home, and make a mean vegetarian white bean and cabbage soup!

How did you do?

    Surprisingly bad. Cinnamon daily, blueberries occassionally, and the rest rarely. Must get some new recipes!

    Well, you’ll be happy to know that I have plenty of good recipes that I will be sharing soon! One that even has beets and prunes — a total win-win!

    Do you do a food diary? I need to start again.

      I absolutely do a food diary! It’s crucial. Check out the post, Getting Real about Calories! We can also talk about it next week over dinner!

        actually, I have a membership on, and it’s pretty good. It tracks food and exercise both. I can also use it on my Ipod touch. It’s a great tool. I just get off course.

    Patty, if you have an iTouch, you should check out the application, “Lose it.” It also keeps track of your nutrients, which may be more important — especially if you are going back to being vegan!
