I’m going to be tough on myself from now until July 4 – no salt and no sugar — at all — ever.  

Eating only unprocessed foods, I think the salt part will be easy.  I just have to avoid shaking it onto anything.   The sugar part though . . . that involves giving up coffee.   So I supposed I should say I am giving up salt, sugar and coffee until July 4.    There is just something missing in my weight loss program.  This month I wanted to lose 10 lbs by July 1, and I’ve lost zero pounds.   I need an extra boost, since I’m already moderately exercising and I’m not eating anything that’s even close to being bad in any way. 

I’ll report back here after one week to let you know how it has gone.

Well, let’s see, what am I eating these days?   I am eating mostly vegetables, fruit, and whole grains, but light on the grains.  I try very hard to eat as many organic foods as possible.   I am having coffee a few times a week, with either raw sugar or agave nectar in it, as well as skim milk or almond milk.  I have to say, coffee with agave nectar and almond milk is a different coffee to be sure, but it does taste good.  It’s just a different good.  I also eat an ounce of chocolate on occasion, 70% of course.  And I’ve had some popcorn here and there this week, cooked on the stove in canola oil, salted with sea salt. 

And I would say that is pretty much all I eat, other than an occasional trip around town to one of the approved restaurants in which I am willing to dine.   And I have to say I have come up with some excellent restaurant meals at places I definitely trust to serve good fresh food. 

I have to hit the sack now — super sleepy.  I sleep very well these days and when I hit that wall, I hit it hard.  See you tomorrow, my friends.

Healthy nutritious diet lowfat recipes cookingSo, yeah, I’m not having any great snacks or appetizers for the awards.  But I am repeating the spaghetti squash I’ve been eating for a few days.  This week was my first adventure with spaghetti squash and I love it!  You just halve the squash, put it face down on a cookie sheet, back at 375F for 45 minutes to 1 hour and then scrape the insides out to make little spaghetti-like strands.   It’s yummy with any marinara sauce you might make.  Tonight, I ate it with just chopped tomatoes and garlic.
