Feeling Ill

For the last couple of weeks, I’m ending up feeling a little nauseated every time I eat something. No, I’m not pregnant It’s annoying and frustrating, because I work really, really hard to try to feed my body food that keeps it feeling good. I have IBS and the insulin-resistance piece of PCOS that both [...]

Englandia, here we come!

Flights booked, tickets in hand, we will be off to England to visit my in-laws in January. It doesn’t seem like over two years since we moved to Seattle from Manchester but, in the interim, a two-year-old has sprouted into a four-year-old: I’m already making plans for what I’m going to do while I’m there [...]

But eating healthy is just so EASY! Not.

This NPR story, or rather, the comments on it, are driving me nuts. For the link-phobic, it’s an article on a low-income family. The mother explains that she struggles to feed her three children, husband, and herself on the $600 in food stamps they receive per month. Comments include the typical “fresh food is cheaper [...]

Forbidding Foods?

On Sunday, my husband and I went to get an oil change on my sister’s car (she lives in uber-hippie-paradise Portland and doesn’t need it, so we borrow it) and, thanks to the HOUR LONG WAIT, toddled over to Top Food & Drug across the street. Grocery store love, my friends, grocery store love. It [...]

Hungry

I’m hungry. I suspect this is due to the fact that I ate doughnuts today (OMG – FAT LADY EATS DOUGHNUTS, ALERT OBESITY TASK FORCE NOW!). We never get doughnuts in our office but one of our delegations brought them in and, miracle of miracles, they had a cinnamon sugar doughnut. Oh wonder and glory, [...]

Eating Rules!

See what I did with that title there? Double Meanings FTW! *** I like organic, locally-sourced food. I like growing my own food. I like cooking food and, by golly, I like eating food. So, I’ve been trying to figure out exactly what’s been rubbing me the wrong way about a friend of mine linking [...]

Include in comments or post a link to a recipe elsewhere, so that we can all share, since there are so many soup-lovers among my readers! Also, for anyone who’s interested in recipes, I actually do keep a bunch over here. Not [...]

Let’s Talk Lunch

I try to bring lunch most days – I eat out maybe once a week (and no, it’s not TWO CAKES! or CHEESEBURGER, FRIES, and DIET COKE [isn't that the old "fattie lunch" trope?]) to try to save money. Lately, I’ve felt SO uninspired by my lunch options. I’m not a big fan of sandwiches, [...]

Cravings

I really want to write a longer post on spring in Seattle (yes, it’s definitely arriving) but one of those things I’m still adjusting to as part of this FA process is responding to cravings, unexpected ones, that leap up and grab me…and not punishing myself for having them. I’ve had several boxes of Girl [...]

Disappointment

There’s a great grocery store about ten minutes away that has a truly remarkable deli section. A month or so back I discovered that on Saturdays they serve prime rib. That visit I chatted with the guy at the counter and found out that his mom was from England. He and Graham then talked a [...]
