"What have you given up to make your life better?"
Well, I gave up exercise, and now my life is much better. :) Alright, alright, seriously... um... hmmm... I suppose the one thing is that about 7 years ago I decided to be a "healthy vegetarian". Now, I've been a vegetarian for around 15 years, give or take. But, for a long time, I would eat things that were meatless, but by no means healthy. (eg: Fries, chips, that kind of thing.) When I became more health-conscious, I lost a little bit of weight, but more importantly, I'm sure my insides were thankful. No clogged arteries for moi! At least, not at the hands of Ronald.

"Healthy vegetarian"-- I like that. I wish I were ready to give up all meat-- it's SO much healthier and better for the environment. But I am thinking of tackling a year of no red meat, or a year of no sugar. I can't decide which. Red meat would be easier, because I don't eat it that often. But sugar would be better in the long run, 'cuz I'm such a sugar fiend. Something to mull... and maybe write a post about...

Yo S,

What if... you could give that year back...and worked out for a year doing a shit-ton-of-exercise and gym 101...would you have done it?

Just a thought...I'm going to pick up some weights tonight to honor this conversation...and I believe both ways work the best...when they are done together...

Peace - 22

How right you are, 22! Yes, I also spent a lot of time in the gym with my fabulous trainer Rita... as well as Pilates and hiking. It's the whole eat-less-move-more paradigm, although I think it should really be eat-BETTER-move-more...

As I've been lucky enough to eat one of your home cooked meals, I can most definitely vouch that your rosemary potatoes are better than McDonald's french fries. Dee-licious.

Cooking Light magazine will change your life. There is this recipe for a Greek salad in this month's issue -- and I don't even LIKE Greek salad. Great portion sizes (you feel like you're actually eaten something) and very yummy. We've rarely had a bad meal out of that publication.

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
