Healthy Recipes – Comfort Food Recipes at

Okay, the last time I read Woman’s Day magazine was probably at the dentist’s or my  mom’s house but it looks like I might have to check it out again. This article gives some really interesting healthy recipes from food bloggers – I am posting here for you (because I am that nice) but really as a way to book mark it so I don’t forget where I put it. I am struggling to come up with healthy meals this summer, despite (or maybe because of) the surplus of veggies at my disposal. Every other week I get a farm share and the farmer’s market has been filled with gorgeous fruits and vegetables that I want to try but sometimes I don’t know what to do with them except put them in a salad…I know, but it has been hot and cooking something yo know how to make is one thing, learning a new recipe is much more time consuming. I am glad for this new resource…check it out. Also, the article links to a bunch of food blogs I hadn’t yet found!

Healthy Recipes – Comfort Food Recipes at Here from Verbatim is a great local resource – a CSA that solves my weekly dilemma of  veggie surplus.

In the very first hour of the first day of my Joos cleanse, I may have cheated…

…if by cheating you mean drinking hot water with lemon (as directed) with the addition of honey and a teabag (it was TAZO™ – Awake – my favorite kind!) and so needed after area thunderstorms woke us in the middle of the night…so really, it was only so that I could operate heavy machinery (Volvo station wagon) safely.

Also, the Joos™ booklet I got told me it was okay if I eased into no caffeine and wasn’t perfect about this.  I was up pretty early and was hungry so I had a spoon of peanut butter (honey-roasted) and a banana. Not on the list for the am but not on the elimination list either.  I walked for an hour plus and had my first Joos™ -when I got back and I liked it. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t and that would not be good but I do… so all good.  Then, on my way to run a million and a half errands I shoved 4 rice cakes into my mouth – really I lost track because I was really hungry. Water, too. Rice cakes are a little bit dry. I did not make it home for lunch – I mean Joos™ – and was flustered and cranky by 2 pm when I inhaled my second Joos™ and some almonds and a nectarine that wasn’t really ripe but I did not care. I was really, really hungry – not feeling deprived just way off schedule and messy. Picked up the kids and ran some more errands and then home – usually the time I really eat junk. I had hit Trader Joe’s and picked up crackers, humus and lentil salads so I was all set for dinner. Snack in afternoon was almonds, crackers and water. My family had pesto pasta with chicken and I had an enormous salad with my pre-made salads on top. I felt good – regular tired not bone-crushing tired and only glanced at the chocolate in the candy cabinet.
Disclosure: I am getting the Joos™ cleanse program for a week as a trial in exchange for reviewing it but receiving no other financial compensation.
