Today's Lunch

Today I had the most wonderful lunch!  Whole Grain Pumpernickle Rye bread, with guacamole, spicy mustard, organic spinach, roasted Hatch Chili, and hormone free/naturally fed and raised chicken.  It was soooooo good!

I had enough left over to make myself another one tomorrow!  All of the ingredients came from The Fresh Market, which I am so fortunate to have in my neighborhood. 

This is part of my mission to only eat humanely treated, naturally raised meat.  Otherwise, I'm just gonna have to skip it!

Dinner at Chipotle

Chipotle is truly "food with integrity".  I love Chipotle, as it's one of the very few places that I can satisfy a hankering for meat with naturally fed and raised options.  No hormones, no GMO grains, no rBGH, no Frankenfood. 

Tonight I opted for the burrito bowl with Barbacoa, rice, black beans, cheese, and sour cream.  Yes, dairy, but dairy that doesn't contain the Frankenfood stuff.  Somehow my system handles that better than the alternative.

More info about about the naturally raised animals can be found in the movie Food Inc, available everywhere a DVD can be bought or rented (a must see, but more on that later)

Cheese, oh Evil Cheese

I have not had cheese for two weeks. Dairy and I have a love hate relationship. I love cheese, yogurt, sour cream, cream sauces, bisques....and dairy hates me.
Today I have fallen off the wagon. Macaroni and cheese. Potato chips and chili cheese sauce.  I may actually explode.
The lesson here is never give into the sweet, seductive smile of cheese ..

Chicken Poblamo Soup

It's my current obsession. YaYa's makes it. So, so good. Fresh ingredients and all.
I need a new obsession...

Winding Down Week 3

Expiramentation is interesting.  I've compiled quite the list of foods to stay away from based on how they make me feel.  Namely, anything processed, all dairy (I miss cheese), anything with High Fructose Corn Syrup, and anything "diet" (with diet sweeteners). 

I'm drinking much more water, and am actually thirsty most of the time.  I'm even toying with green drinks. 

Today I bought three plumbs and something called an applepear.  I don't remember when the last time I bought fruit was. 

What is happening to me?

Welcome to my blog!  I hope you enjoy following me along my path of my musings, rants, and experimentations on my quest for good health. 

I love food.  I love all kinds of food, which is a problem for my poor little body.  OK, maybe not so little :-)  I have embarked on an experiment, which I will track here for your amusement, to better understand the impact food has on me. 

It will be an interesting ride...
