    Doing well! I ran out of time to blog for a couple of days there. The eating healthy is an adjustment but not as difficult so far as getting in enough water! Of course I have the occasional cravings for something disgustingly unhealthy, but I keep reminding myself that prediabetes CAN be reversed,... Read more

    Did my usual for Saturday, and went out to my parents' house and made lunch for us. But first I moved outdoor furniture on the archery field then picked and shucked a crate of sweet corn. Dad picked a second crate of corn that we didn't shuck... that one is for giving away. For lunch today we... Read more

    My dogs just had to have their teeth removed. They're both chihuahua mixes, and that isn't uncommon in the breed, and in the case of the girl, who was a rescued stray found nearly starved to death, pregnant with two puppies, and dehydrated on the streets of San Bernadino, CA, not surprising. They bo... Read more

    Magic because of how fast and easy this is; takes about 1 1/2 minutes to make in a wide mouth pint size mason jar. [or jar of your choice] Because this mayo contains raw egg, I wouldn't feed it to someone in the immune compromised category, and I wouldn't make it with month-old eggs of question... Read more

  • Drink More, Eat Less!

    8/27/2016 6:21:51 AM, by JSTETSER

    Drink more, eat less. My doctor recently told me that I should focus on my drinking to curb my eating. If I drink more before a meal, I will consistently eat less during the meal. I am now drinking 8-10 ounces of water before every meal. What a simple change, and what big rewards. I no lo... Read more
