Due in part to the Nutrition class which I am enrolled in this semester, I have taken lately to eating much healthier than I ever have in my life. Growing up, I did not--as a rule--eat vegetables. Well, except for potatoes (any kind but potato salad), corn (but ONLY from a can), and carrots (though never cooked). My tastes are changing, perhaps out of necessity, perhaps out of fear (pushing 40 can bring all kinds of thoughts to one's head), but I am feeling really good: energized and healthier than just a couple of weeks ago. I think I may even be losing weight. If you're struggling with food issues this is just a little encouragement--if I can change after nearly 40 years.. so can you!

|Having the rice pre-cooked saved loads of time.|
|Heaping fruit on top added nutrients & flavor.|
The lunch above looked so good I had to take some quick iPhone pics. Yum! A quick, healthy, and delicious lunch!
