This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

Salads on parade

Tasted much better than it looks!

You will find me posting mostly pictures of vegetables and salads this month. In fact, I do salads around the world -- Thai, Mexican, Middle Eastern, Korea, or like today, whatever in the kitchen. I will be eating "normal" meals for lunch, but I am pouring my heart into cooking my salads and sometimes soups. I am doing my fail-proof lose 5 lbs in 1 month program. Of course, I don't expect people to follow these recipes (heck, not even really recipes). But I hope by seeing the photos, they will inspire people to eat healthier in this very new year!
This is my dinner today:tuna and onion salad with balsamico and mustard dressing. Second dish is carrots and cabbage sauteed with Parmesan cheese and my quickly disappearing bottle of chiptole Tabasco. The second dish is sort of inspired by Tricia's dilemma about too much Brussel sprouts. (Sorry Elsie) the melted Parmesan makes it soo good. Was going to make a German colesaw with remaining carrot and cabbage for tomorrow, but mmm, will do the saute again. Had a glass of plain soy milk and okay (one butter cookie too!)
BTW, feel free to post fattening foods too! People still need comfort foods, party foods, fantasy foods!! The point of this blog is to post any foods that made you proud and happy!!!! and makes you feel good about making it!!!

I will be eating a lot of salads too. At least for this week. I picked up several fresh items yesterday at the grocery store. Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, celery, cabbage, cherries, asparagus... It all looked so wonderful, and I'm so tired of heavy, BIG, meals. Salads and simple sautes and light soups sounds so delish for right now.

It's soup time for me too. Easy to make a big pot of veggie soup and add different meats to it to change it up.
