As life gets busy with other things, the first thing to get ignored in my list of things seems to be this blog! Its been a crazy few months with the summer art festivals season and catching up on painting almost every day. Also, my health has not been in the best condition this last year and I am struggling a little bit to stay motivated to take care of myself. We have also been eating out almost every weekend when there is a show and week day meals are not fancy, but simple and comforting.
As part of my healthy eating these days, I am trying to reduce the amount of food I eat, especially simple carbohydrates; also reducing the amount of spices that I cook with. And instead of a regular plate, I am switching to a small bowl -- one of my friend's used to eat in a bowl and it is a fond reminder of him. Tonight's dinner was 1/2 cup of rice, swiss chard cooked with ginger, onions & tomatoes, and eggplant sautéed in olive oil.
Even if I don't get to post recipes, I am going to try & catalog my eating habits here, along with other tit-bits of everyday life!
