Healthy Meals for One or Two: Kickin’ It Off With Smoothies

January 8th, 2009 · 17 Comments

My friend Chris (whom you can find writing these two blogs) has struggled with eating at home for the two years I’ve known him.  Chris is a successful, intelligent person who is good about determining what he wants and going for it, and one thing he wants to do is cook and eat at home […]

Soup Season

November 3rd, 2008 · 9 Comments

The trees catch fire.  The now-golden sunlight fades by 6 p.m.  The Grady High football announcer’s voice reverberates up the street, followed at halftime by the percussion and horns of the marching band. Sitting by the cold window in the dark, I feel the season’s usual downward tug on my heart.  For a moment, I […]

Gotta eat even when you’re busy, right?

June 10th, 2008 · 13 Comments

I owe you (and myself) the time to write out a variety of posts that have been floating around in my head the last couple of weeks.  And I’m gonna work on that . . . tomorrow. In the meantime, I did want to post my meals for this week, most of the ingredients of […]

Busy busy busy–and here’s what I’m eating

June 2nd, 2008 · 8 Comments

Whoo, I have been busy lately. I always make a meal plan, but lately, I don’t always take the time to post it.  In any case, here’s this week’s, starting with this past Saturday.  As always, it’s gluten-free, dairy-(casein-)free, soy-free, and egg-free. (It’s funny that it’s become such a habit for me at this point […]

Healthy Meal Plan for a Busy Spring Week

May 18th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Dan and I start our thrice-weekly work-out class this week. In practice, going to the class shouldn’t be terribly different than coming home and going for a run was prior to now. However, I’m planning to succeed by assuming that it will put me home later than I expect—-and planning meals as if I will […]

A True Spring Dinner

May 15th, 2008 · 6 Comments

I worked last Saturday morning and thus sent my husband to the neighborhood farmer’s market (which is only held on Saturday mornings) to pick fresh, local vegetables for our week’s meals. He came home with several veggies, including a bag of lovely fresh, shelled peas. He had picked the peas rather at random, but peas […]

Allergen-Free, Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon Pancakes

May 7th, 2008 · 6 Comments

When I saw Heidi’s coconut macaroon pancakes, I knew I had to try them. When my friend Les saw them independently, she felt the same way. We integrated them in to our simplicity circle retreat meal plan. When the time arrived to make them, we altered them to be gluten-free and egg-free, and we hoped […]

Fairly Quick & Healthy Meals for a Busy Week

April 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments

I successfully kept myself busy while my husband was gone (some might say overly busy), he’s come home from Europe safely, and he brought me gluten-free pasta from Italy! I hear it’s going to be fabulous, so I’m really excited about it.  Nonetheless, I’m holding off on using any this week because I’d already gotten […]

Sometimes simple is best

April 5th, 2008 · 7 Comments

. . . especially when one is eating alone and doesn’t commonly eat alone. This was my lunch: organic spring greens, pickled beets, local organic chevre, and organic bacon with a champagne vinaigrette (champagne vinegar, a dash of smoked paprika, a dash of agave, olive oil).  Oh, and my staple glass of water, of course.
