Alas, I finished a new doll. I named her Molly. She is a bit of a health nut - like me. I am proud to report that I have stuck to the smoothie diet. My husband says that diet is nothing but the word "die" spelled with a t. Oh well, I am afraid I rather enjoying my suffering. Too bad I will have to pay a big fine at the library today since I forgot to return all those wonderful die-t-ing books on time.
My least favorite book of the lot I checked out was probably the book you see on top of the pile: Never Feel Old Again by Raymond Francis. Seriously, that book makes to want to stop eating, breathing, bathing, using phones and computers. According to that dude we are practically dead already, and the only way we may be able to come back to life would be to stop doing everything and buy the author's line of supplements. Don't read that book! My family declared me crazy whenever I quoted from it.
So I have decided to stick to the smoothies for breakfast and lunch right now, and enjoy a nice evening meal with the family. I have cut out pretty much all processed foods and traded unhealthy snacks for nuts and fruits. I am quite pleased with the results. I feel much more energized and convinced that I sleep much since I started on this regimen.
Another book I really loved besides The Green Smoothie Diet by Robyn Openshaw was 101 Foods that Could Save Your Life by David Grotto. It was fun to try out some new foods. Unfortunately some of the "superfoods" are very unhealthy for your budget. For example Goji berries. Have you ever heard of them? I found that a bag costs about $20. Now that is nuts!
