IF and feel good eating

Lot of talk lately about intermittent fasting.
If you eat right for a while, it becomes very clear if and when you're hungry.
I ate a HUGE lunch yesterday, first because I was hungry and second because I was having a craving and it all tasted SO good. I had sashimi at my favorite Japanese sushi restaurant.
Lots of tuna, salmon, salmon eggs, cucumber, ginger and some miso soup. I was stuffed.
So for dinner I had a few bites of salad and a glass of red wine.
This morning had a hard and fast workout. Was not hungry after the workout, and will eat today when my body tells me to. Which will be around 1 or 2 pm. I did have about 5 almonds before my workout.

Lunch; Beef bourguignon, over raw spinach. Some left over rotisserie chicken drizzled with olive oil.

Snack; 3 large asparagus wrapped with a piece of smoked salmon.

Dinner will be a large salad. Red leaf and green leaf lettuce, cucumber, peppers, asparagus. (raw)
olive oil dressing with dijon mustard, lots of garlic, scallions, fresh ground pepper. 3 little lamb-chops grilled. (they have marinated over night)

Best wishes to everyone for a wonderful holiday season

Another recipe with multiple uses.

Ground turkey (I like the dark better then the breast, as it has some more flavor. Try and get organic/natural)
Some organic butter and saute, garlic,olives,hot pepper and tomato. add the ground turkey and cook all together. when almost finished, add spinach. turn of the heat let spinach wilt by stirring/folding in with turkey. I had that for lunch yesterday, so breakfast today was;

3 scrambled eggs with the left over turkey dish mixed in.
I usually don't list it, but I do drink one cup of coffee every morning.
great workout this morning around 7:30 followed by breakfast at my desk around 10.

Holiday party eating

Lots of holiday parties to attend this time of year. This is how I'm trying to deal with the onslaught of food temptations.

I eat a "fatty breakfast". This Lets me feel full until that point in the day around 1-3 when usually the holiday parties start. The parties are in restaurants or hotels, and mostly buffet style. I heap on the mixed green salad (olive oil is no were to be found) with out dressing, and add roasted turkey form the carving station. Portion control is tough and I eat too much, but it's my last meal of the day (perhaps a smal piece of fruit with a glass of red wine at night). As everyone around me is having dessert....I sometimes have a cup of coffee with cream and some raw sugar. This is sweet for me and satisfying. And much better then eating that piece of pecan pie ;-)

Breakfast; 1 tbs dijon mustard, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 scallion thinly sliced, 3 ounces chopped up smoked salmon, fresh ground pepper. Mix until it becomes like a spread. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. I had this served on half an avocado.

Something to think about?

"Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends upon what we look for. What we look for depends upon what we think. What we think depends upon what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. what we take to be true is our reality.” Gary Zukav.

Breakfast this morning was my own spin on '"chopped liver".
2-3 ounces of ground dark turkey. 2 boiled eggs, some chopped onion.
Saute the meat, cool. Then mix all ingredients with some fresh ground pepper and sea salt.
A stalk of organic celery. 2 strawberries, 4 black berries, 6 grapes.

half an avocado, half a burger, tomatoe and onion.

I'm today, that's it for food for the rest of the day.

So breakfast this morning;

Sauteed in organic butter, some garlic, onion, yellow pepper, asparagus. Then put in two large tablespoons of cashew butter, 1/3 cup of water.
Topped of with some fresh sliced cucumber.
I left the picture out on wasn't pretty looking. ;-)

Small (3 ounce) grilled Kobe beef burger. YUM!

Late lunch; Brought from home; container with 3 slices of cucumber, few spinach leaves, some peas, table spoon of hummus and half a pickle.

Napleon Hill

"Before success in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do. "

One of the earliest self help books out there, Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" has some really neat truths and unveiled secrets. I just pulled it out of my book shelf, and re-read it.
Take a peak might find something useful you can apply.
Back to food!

3 (organic omega 3) egg omelet with asparagus, tomato and scallion.

Don't get caught up in the craziness

Can you feel it out there? Pure craziness, everyone scurrying about. Shopping, buying, running, and stressing out. Remember to breathe ;-) Eat right and get your body moving. Enjoy "The season" don't let it wear you down!

Back to food........

Breakfast easy and healthy;

Grilled chicken, 2 slices avocado (from my friends back yard), some grapes and a clementine.

The cat was curious too.......

didn't eat all the grapes. I have a small fridge in my office, grapes will be there for possibly later on snack.

Lunch appointment out of the office, what is one to do?
Mexican restaurant was the meeting point.
You can still eat well there.
Steak Fajitas, a little bit of meat with some peppers and grilled onions. I'm sure the oils they use aren't the greatest, but not bad for restaurant food. It gets bad when you eat everything else they serve namely; refried beans with cheese on top, corn chips, flour tortillas, rice, sour cream.
I felt good after the meal.
Dinner will be a small simple salad with a glass of red wine.

Thursday, December 6, 2007

We don't always have time

So when you don't, make smart choices.

Almonds. about 15 or so.

Lunch: simply spiced grilled piece of tuna. steamed broccoli. Small portion of both.

Dinner; Baked chicken leg with some salad. Glass of red wine.

Tennis weekend and food

Heather, I know what you mean, ity's tought to find the fresh stuff.

Chris, the massage helped me enormously. She took away all the pain, all I had was some residual stiffness. I had a tennis tournament this weekend, worried I wouldn't be able to play.
I played 2 singles matches on Saturday and 1 singles and 2 doubles matches on Sunday. A lot of tennis for one weekend. I sustained myself the EF way.
In the morning I ate 4 boiled eggs with some strawberries and blueberries. After my first match, I came home and ate a grass fed ground beef patty and put it on the grill. Together with some fresh sauteed spinach with garlic and lots of olive oil.
At the end of the second match I ate a piece of watermelon and drank lots of water.
Later that evening, I had some more steak, together with a salad. (restaurant food)

Sunday morning, had an 8:00 clock match. Had some avocado. 11:00 had some smoked salmon.
12:30 match.
3:15 had a cup of potato leek soup. (it was all I could find close to the tennis courts)
4:30 match ate a few grapes during the match.
7:45 Some sashimi, at a restaurant.
My body was tired, from all the activity, but recovered very well. No carbs like everyone is led to believe that you need for these type of events.

Breakfast this morning;
Tempeh, avocado, hummus, a little cherry pepper. Very small quantity this morning.

Anybody venture to guess how Art Devany might feel about Tempeh?

Thursday, November 29, 2007

For my own records?

Well, don't know if anyone has missed my posts, but I'm back to posting, as it gives me a good way to upkeep my own food journal.

Hope everyone has been checking Art Devany's site. Great new posts on workouts as well as meal pictures. I use his type of workouts with great succes.

4 raw asparagus stalks wrapped in 2 slices of salami (pay for the healthy stuff like applegate farms with no nitrates) half an apple, some dark grapes and a clementine.

This morning workout consisted of some sprinting, walking , jumping around skipping to some good music accompanied by wonderful morning sunshine.

Busy couple of weeks.

Well, hopefully some of you have missed the updates. It's been busy for me.
Made the mistake two weeks ago of having a few slices of pizza with my kids. Wow, did that hurt. I was completely out of it for an hour or 2 after eating it.

Mesclun mix, smoked salmon, tomato, capers topped with some olive oil.
One red plum.

As a snack I brought in some macadamia nuts and some celery.

This too shall pass

Feeling good today? This too shall pass.....
Feeling lousy today? This too shall pass....
Quite comforting isn't it?

Dinner last night; sauteed garlic, scallions, zucchini, yellow squash, red pepper and a splash of tomato sauce. Now...... drum roll..... three or 4 thin slices of fresh mozzarella, and put your pan under the broiler.
Accompanied by some strips of tempeh, and a small side salad of baby spinach and romaine lettuce. Drizzle of balsamic and olive oil.

Breakfast; Was at an early morning breakfast meeting. I had some scrambled eggs and fruit.
Large buffet, with pancakes, french toast, bagels muffins, potatoes, sausage, bacon, biscuits, etc etc.
Keep it simple and you'll feel good eating ;-)

Perfect breasts

Chicken breasts that is.
I've found that, to master the "perfect grilled chicken breast" of course you have to marinate them and almost more must pound them out. This turns a fat chicken breast into a large thin breast.
This allows you to cook the chicken fairly quickly, and the end result is a juicy, very tasty standby that you can plan many of your meals with, for the coming week.
Marinades for you to try. For the first breast; tablespoon of garlic, olive oil, dried chili pepper, white wine. (I keep a jar of minced garlic from the supermarket in my fridge for marinating. It is easy and works well. I only use it for marinades though.)
Second breast; teaspoon of miso, sesame oil, olive oil, garlic.
Different flavors for different dishes. That way you don't get tired of eating the same chicken all week. Keep your meat/chicken/fish consumption normal. 3-4 ounces per meal is all you need.
Please use "natural/free range" chicken breasts.

Breakfast; Melon, some raw baby spinach drizzled with roasted garlic balsamic, few strips of red pepper and 3-4 ounces of diced chicken breast

Salads & Philosophy for a Friday

The combinations are just endless.

Breakfast, nice mesclun mix, some olive oil, some capers, and smoked salmon.
Simple right?

Lunch; Melon, almonds, strawberries, romaine lettuce, balsamic and some olive oil.

Thought for the day......
You know, as much as we try, we can't force our "way" of things, we can't "make" things the way we would like them to's just not always possible.
So that reminds me of the advice a friend of mine used to give me. When things were tough, people doing things that disrupt your life; think of the following analogy.
" You don't walk through a nice forrest with hatchet in hand, ready to chop down any branch or limb that YOU think is out of place. It's not yours to fix. Just let the forrest be" I always really liked that story.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Phew. I'm back

Thanks to all, for the emails and feedback in regards to the blog.
It's been busy for me.

In a hurry and not prepared
Some roasted turkey slices (natural one from applegate), one small organic apple.

I have been busier then usual for this time of year, so have not been posting in much detail.
Did you guys enjoy the pics from the previous posts? Helpful? Waste of my time? ;-)

Lunch today will be a salad with some form of protein. Getting hungry and have not decided.

9/11 today, crazy world we live in. I'll leave you with an excerpt from "Desiderata"

"You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,

whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.Strive to be happy. "

Monday, September 10, 2007

Tablespoon of vegenaise. Mix together.
Easy and quick. Total prep time 7 minutes.

Finish to start...........

I couldn't figure out how to get the right sequence of pics posted. So hence, from "finish to start"
Bottom of the pics, shows the start of an easy breakfast, tasty and healing as I try and aid my body in fighting this little cold.
Garlic about 4 cloves, 4 scallions, small orange habanero pepper, green pepper little less then half of one, 5 asparagus, bok choy about 5 stalks, grass fed sirloin steak. The steak was left over from this weekend. It might look like a lot, but it is just about 6 small slices cut in to little pieces. (The steak I made over the weekend was prepped like this; marinated in a beer (corona) cut up onion and garlic dash of hot sauce. Marinated over night. Grilled to medium rear, and sliced up for future use)
The pics show the sequence, With some olive oil saute the garlic, scallions and habanero. Then add pepper, then asparagus, then bok choy and finally the meat.
Snack later will be a small organic fuji apple and a handful of almonds.

Wednesday, September 5, 2007

Stay in the now.

Amazing really, when you are not feeling good how you can get so focused on it. Tough for healing to take place when your thoughts are in a constant stage of contraction instead of expansion. Stay in the now, it makes you feel instantly better. Anywho....

Breakfast to go;

Half a pear, almonds, celery, scoop of peanut butter.
Lunch; some cabbage with chicken soup.
Snack; grapes, herb tea (lots of it)
Dinner; Tomato sauce (organic diced tomatoes, garlic, onion) with ground grass fed bison.
served with asparagus and some bok choy. I sauteed the ground bison, with lots of garlic and onion, olive oil. Opened two cans of the diced tomatoes, put them in the crockpot when the meat was done (don't over cook it) I tossed it in the crockpot also. That was at 8 this morning. It will have simmered all day. Talk about flavor........

Tuesday, September 4, 2007

Oh NO!

I think my kids gave me a cold they had. Woke up in the middle of the night with my throat on fire. But I blame myself. My ex wife had it bad, and I somewhat enjoyed her sufferring ;-)
See!! Never a good thing taking joy from some one elses pain.
I rarely catch a cold, Had one a year ago, but have not been sick in 5.

So, breakfast;
Large container of chicken soup, thank good ness I still had some in the fridge.
I added 4 cloves of crushed up garlic when I heated it and a spoonful of some crushed habanero pepper.

Lunch; sald bar at the healthfood store. Some raw baby spinach, a few olives, peas, small piece of mahi mahi (dolphin fish........not flipper ;-) ), some olive oil.

Large cucumber, tomato and feta salad. topped with some tempeh.
Cut up kukes, matoes, and feta. Some olive oil, some fresh cilantro and a squirt of lemon juice.
AWESOME! In a skillet, some olive oil, slice tempeh in 1 inch slices, brown both sides. Watch the heat.

Hump day....AGAIN.

When I walked in the office this morning, someone again said happy hump day!

Read my previous post on "hump day"......I just don't get it.
I've always liked this picture of me. The sun rays are neat. Try and get outside everyday for a few "sun minutes" You're body and mind need it.

Last night, I had my kids and was short on time.

Dinner was a natural rotisserie chicken, broccoli sauteed in garlic and olive oil and red cabbage made with onions, garlic and a splash of apple juice. Also some baby carrots for he kids.


Had some left over chicken and broccoli and cut that up, mixed in with some vegenaise for a delicious broccoli chicken salad. Some celery stalks.

Lisa (my friend who is busy with her transformation) had some peanut butter and celery.

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

Nike says it best....."Just do it"

You know, it really is just a matter of doing it.
Last night I went home, and after several times of opening and closing the fridge, hoping miraculously something would just manifest itself, I threw left overs together for an amazing meal.
Sauteed garlic, onions, green pepper, bok choy and spinach. Cut up a piece of grilled left over rib-eye in bite sized pieces. Mixed it all together. It was awesome and chock full of green goodness. Cup of chamomile tea before sleep with a book made for one wonderful evening.

Breakfast; same problem as dinner, not a full fridge to work with.
Sweet potato boiled topped with some olive oil and sea-salt. Cubed tempeh with onion, garlic and green pepper done in some olive oil.

Would you all like to see more pictures? Or are my cryptic descriptions clear enough? I grew up in Europe, so my English composition is not what it needs to be at times. (Holland, Amsterdam. in case you are curious)

Monday, August 27, 2007

Wake up early!

It seems natural to wake up early. That being said, I think going to sleep early is also very important. I find that I have a lot of energy during the day when I get up between 5:30 and 6.

Breakfast; 2 hardboiled eggs with half an avocado some vegenaise and a little olive oil, red leaf lettuce. All mixed together. It didn't look very pretty, but it was tasty none the less.

Lunch; romaine lettuce, peas, 2 wings, 4 or 5 ribs, cucumber, some pumpkin seeds, some olive oil. Great salad from the Wild Oats salad bar. Heather, I think you're town needs one ;-)

Snack; a piece of dark chocolate.

Comments; I'm egged out! Had eggs Sat. and Sun. morning. and today. But they are so easy and versatile.

Dinner; I have a small piece of grass fed rib-eye left over from the weekend. I will have that with some veggies and salad. Glass of red wine.

Friday, August 24, 2007

Give me your thoughts please......

I'm thinking about opening up an eatery/restaurant.
I love to cook, I enjoy turning people on to "feel-good-eating".
Do you think there would be a market for a place like that? A place were you can come in and get REAL food. I believe in the US. many people want to make the change, but are short on time. Would loe to hear any input or thoughts.

Some baby carrots, some celery with some hummus.

Lunch; 1/4 rotisserie chicken with some steamed veggies.

Thursday, August 23, 2007

Are you having fun????

What do you guys do to body movement wise to have fun??
I played soccer yesterday for about 90 minutes. I played in College and on a semi-pro team after that. But have Not played in 15 years. Yesterday, I felt like a kid playing, and having fun.
Stay active and keep the kid mindset!

Breakfast; some thin sliced grass fed strip steak, sauteed very quickly in some olive oil and garlic. (this takes 90 seconds) Removed the steak and tossed in some cut up asparagus and sugar snap peas. Also only about 90 seconds. 1 large stalk of celery.
Lisa will have this for dinner. Her breakfast consisted of 2 scrambled eggs with 2 celery stalks.

Lunch for Lisa will be salad with some grilled chicken.
I will spend some time outside in the heat today, so prepped up a lunch of almonds and a nice juicy organic plum.

Dinner consisted of 4 meatballs, some celery, some salad.
Had a huge sugar craving after dinner for some reason; So had some pineapple and mango juice. Really quenched that craving.

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

Plan, plan and plan.

Here's my very cool new toy and birthday present;

I can't tell you enough that if you think ahead in regards to your meals, it just gets so much easier. I know we don't always like doing that, but just think how easy it is to think ahead and plan for when our next favorite t.v. show is on. (Jack Sparrow intonation) Savy???
Last night I sauteed some garlic, bok choy and asparagus and added some chicken pieces. Light easy and tasty. I enjoyed a beer with the meal. (Kalik, in case you're curious)
Breakfast; 2 organic omega 3, scrambled eggs with green and red peppers, scalion, tomato and a little bit of feta. A few apple slices after it.
Lisa, had her "bland" meal of an organic fuji apple, some peanut butter (about 2 teaspoons) and a large celery stalk.
I also prepped up Lisa's dinner, which wil be sauteed baby spinach with garlic and 2 marinated and spice rubbed lamb chops. (the little ones) I also prepped up my dinner which is a fresh piece of wild coho salmon. I marinated it in a little sesame oil, rice vinegar, little splash of tamari (if you use too much it really overpowers the marinade), little bit of garlic and some wasabi (just disolve in some water and add to the marinade).Total prep time for all foods was about 35 minutes.
Lunch; Lisa had salmon salad from yesterday.
I had 2 packages of nattou with scallions, some stone ground mustard and a splash of tamari. Served over an avocado. One organic plum.

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Keeping it simple.....

My friend Lisa is still going strong and has adjusted to her new way of eating with ease.
She enjoys her salads and especially her celery.

Breakfast for Lisa was; one hard boiled egg, mixed with half an avocado. a few drops of hot sauce. 8 sugar snap peas, 2 olives and a teaspoon of hummus. This was too much tastse for the morning for her liking. She likes a bland breakfast. So tomorrow she'll have an apple, some peanut butter (I'll convert her shortly to cashew or almond butter) and a few almonds.
My breakfast was so easy, total prep time was 5 minutes.
I have in my fridge some cut up (cubes) chicken breasts. I give those a rub/marinade of garlic powder, onion powder, some sea salt and fresh ground pepper. some squirts of lemon juice and splash of olive oil. (keep it simple, I always in the fridge have on hand some bottled lemon juice, real easy for marines and recipes.) I also have a bag of ready to go broccoli, (washed and cut into bite size pieces). So here we go, some olive oil in the pan, throw in the broccoli.....saute.......toss in the chicken pieces, stir....stir....4-5 minutes. Voila! Done, and a great way start to your day. Portion was small, but very tasty and satisfying.

Lunch; For lisa and myself. Salmon salad with Celery.
Can of wild salmon (they are about 5-6 oz's in general) 1 heaping tablespoon of vegenaise. cut up celery (cut it thin and small) one cucumber (remove seeds), some scallions, 4-5 asparagus stalks cut up. Some fresh ground pepper. 2 large celery stalk cut in to 4 pieces served with the salmon salad. (we did not finish the salmon salad, there was plenty left for another lunch for her.)

Snack for me will be some nuts. Walnuts and almonds.

Lisa is eating the same chicken and broccoli I had for dinner. (I prepped it up, all she needs to do is toss in the pan)
I'm not sure yet.

How's everyone out there doing with their "feel good eating?" For all you meat-eaters, I keep seeing great grass fed beef on sale at Wild oats. Strip steak today was $6.99 a pound. I love that stuff. ;-)

Monday, August 20, 2007


Well, I guess you only turn 40 once. To say the least I did not eat too well over the weekend.
Actually, the eating was not all that bad. Shrimp kabobs, chicken kabobs that I made for my party. I stuck my hand in a few chip bowls here and there. Had salads and GASP, a few slices of pizza with my kids. Since all that stuff didn't make me feel too great, I thought drinking copious amounts of delicious rum punch would make the feelings go-away. And, it did!!! Until this morning ;-)
Had enough sugar intake in the form of alcohol, to last me till my next birthay. But like I always say, you've got to enjoy yourself. And sometimes having a few to many drinkies won't kill you.
This is to me the same as the whole food issue. Having a slice of pizza once every six months is no big deal! (although the less you do it, the harder it seems to hit your system)
But eating pizza 3 times a week (many people do) and eating chips and hoho's and twinkies and ring-dings and just plain crap processed foods everyday will become a serious problem for you.
So don't beat yourself up, when on occasion you do not eat right. If you are making a serious effort and sticking with it most of the time, you are way way way ahead of the curve.
So; back to food.

Some almonds, some scrambled tempeh with veggies. Just cut up some different veggies, saute them, cube the tempeh and cook for a bit with them veggies. Total prep and cook time was 11 minutes.

Lunch; lettuce, tomato, cucumber and grilled chicken.

Friday, August 17, 2007

Have a great weekend.


Left over sauteed red cabbage with 3 scrambled eggs. (omega 3)

Snack; They surprised me at work for my birthday, they served authentic dutch butter cake. (boter koek) I had to have a piece ;-)
It was very tasty.

Late Lunch will consist of rotisserie chicken with some steamed veggies.

Most likely will not post this weekend, it's my 40th birthday on Sunday.
Going on 40, feeling 18.
We create our own reality, so keep your thoughts really makes a HUGE difference.

Thursday, August 16, 2007

Don't watch the news too much...especially before going to bed.

It's so easy to get caught up in all the drama you hear on a daily basis. The reality is that things are ever changing and the the "natural order" IS chaos. It's OK, it's the way life is. Enjoy it.
The media works on your emotions, I'm in Florida and the coming hurricane is being reported like world war 3 is about to hit. They know fear sells, I think it's mean.
So try this; don't watch the news for a whole week. Don't worry, you won't miss anything. The interesting thing is, when you check back in a week from now, you'll realize nothing has changed and the same "stuff" is still being reported. OOPS.......sorry......... back to food ;-)

It's been hot here so have not been all that hungry.
Breakfast; 3 boiled organic omega 3 eggs. half a cucumber cut up, a few baby carrots. Some nice stone ground mustard for dipping.

Snack; some walnuts

Lunch; Had nothing prepared today, so had a late lunch at a local healthfood store.
Salad bar consists of hot and cold options.
So here we go, let me show you how easy it is to be good.....even when you're hungry ;-)
Some raw organic baby spinach, some cold peas, sauteed broccoli with garlic, small piece of lemon pepper tilapia (fish). I drizzled some olive oil on it and a dash of hot sauce for dipping.
My plate compared to the rest of the lunch crowd customers, was the only one not overflowing like mount Vesuvius. Total cost upon check out??? $3.09
Filling, healthy, tasty and affordable.

"The way to experience ultimate happiness.........

Is to let go of all worries and regrets, and to know that being happy is the most satisfying of life's feelings. Reflect back on all the progress in your life and allow the positive, creative and joyous thoughts to outshine and overwhelm any sorrow or grief that may linger in the recesses of your mind. Knowing that disease and disaster are natural parts of life is the key to overcoming adversity with a calm and happy spirit. Happiness is waiting right here in front of you. Only you can decide whether or not you choose to experience it. Take this to heart!" T.T.

Breakfast for Lisa, 2 egg salad mixed in with cucumber, red pepper, yellow pepper, scallion and asparagus. Few pieces of pineapple.

nice green salad with raw zucchini, pumpkin seeds, pulled chicken, cucumber some grapes.
Snack; 2 large cherries and a few almonds
Dinner; homemade tomato sauce with grass fed ground buffalo. onions and garlic over a nnce salad ;-)

A new begining

August 1st, great day to start something new and fresh.
And that is EXACTLY what my best friend Lisa V. is doing.
Ever amazed at my "freakish" eating habits..........Lisa has gotten motivated to the point of no return! YAY Lisa.
So as a best friend should...I'm here to help her all the way. I promised her that I will ,daily help plan (and most of the time prepare) what she will eat and to offer non wavering motivational support. There is only one rule;

1. Enjoy your life

We will eat ONLY fresh foods consisting of vegetables, lean meats, poultry, fish, nuts, seeds and fruit.

So you will be reading Lisa's daily food intake, instead of mine for a while.
First day went something like this;
cup of decaf coffee little bit of half and half.
Breakfast; blueberries and almonds.
Lunch; grilled piece of Mahi-Mahi (5 ounces) and asparagus
Snack; 5 organic cherries
Dinner; salad (organic green and red leaf lettuce, scallion, yellow squash, yellow pepper and cucumber) olive oil and balsamic dressing. Homemade organic chicken soup with 2 drumsticks.
What will day 2 bring???????

Get sweaty in the morning

Have you noticed that when you are physically active early morning, it makes for a good day?

Interpret freely ;-)


Some salmon salad, (canned wild salmon, some vegenaise, fresh ground pepper, some cucumber) Asparagus (raw) cut up and some blueberries. The canned salmon I use is all wild (no big name brands) and comes from Canada. It's a great way to get wild salmon, as it is getting harder and harder to find. yummy omega 3's.

Pictures at last

Well, finally managed to take a picture this morning.

Breakfast was simple and for all you "I have no time" people out there, total prep time was 5 minutes.

Here we go, little olive oil, some scallions, 3-4 slices smoked salmon, stir and break up into pieces, top with a large heap of organic baby spinach. Stir.

One stalk of celery and a few pieces of pineapple and melon on the side.
Lunch; Quarter rotisserie chicken, half an avocado.
Snack was a small piece of dark chocolate.
Had my daughter over for dinner. She's my youngest one, for some alone time with Dad. (I have 4, so they need that every now and then) She loves steak, so we played "cooking show" she helped me and this is what we made. Small piece of grass fed rib-eye on the grill, large salad, and some tzatziki, (yogurt, garlic, cucumber, fresh ground pepper, little olive oil, salt.)
Glass of red wine for me, home made lemonade for her. We had a feast.

Tuesday, July 17, 2007

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them

2 tablespoons coconut oil, 3-4 ounces of ground turkey thigh and breasts (natural), little bit of red curry paste disolved in some water. Don't over cook it, added some fresh organic spinach, barely wilted, served over two stalks of cut up organic celery.
The coconut oil together with the red curry paste gives it a nice "Thai" flavor, with minimal ingredients. You can go as spicey as you like.

Grilled chicken with a little oriental sauce over carrots. totally blah! Hey not everything I make is perfect. ;-)

snack; some blueberries and almonds.


Wednesday, July 11, 2007

What do you all do to play and stay fit?

Was at the gym at 6:40 this morning, worked out for 30 minutes, then went and played some tennis for 50 minutes.

Breakfast; 3 fried/scrambled organic omega 3 eggs, spinach, scallions over red leaf lettuce. Some blueberries, and a few almonds.

Tuesday, July 10, 2007


Thought about something this morning;
You know, when you are feeling blue, or life is a little more of a struggle then it should be, Just Do Something. I had someone once explain to me that, physiologically, you can not be depressed or feel down, if you create movement. (Movement within your cells.) This is a simple as doing the dishes, polishing your shoes or cleaning up. Your are "creating progress" as long as you do that, you will not and can not feel down. I go again, sorry... back to FOOD!

Left over salad from last night, couple handfuls of almonds. FYI, I do not buy my almonds organic, as the cost of those is just insane. Most almonds sold here come from California. I have read/heard that almonds will be pasteurized starting in August. That might change my buying choice. Anyone heard about this?

Cllient lunch, went to a Thai restaurant. Had some Tom Kha soup. Spicy coconut soup with mushrooms scallion and chicken. Nothing too bad for eating out.

snack; was craving some chocolate.... had 3 pieces.

Dinner; 2 small lamb chops, large salad with some balsamic vinaigrette. Glass of red wine.

Monday, July 9, 2007

Simple is good...

Early morning tennis workout involved lots of's around 82 at 7 in the morning lately. (Southwest Florida)

So drank a good amount of water and kept breakfast simple.
Some watemelon (3 medium size chunks) and almonds. around 15 or so.
Not very hungry.

Lunch; Keftedes. what you say????? Nothinh fancy, they are greek meatballs (many restaurants will use breadcrumbs in them) easy to make and very tasty. combined with Tzatziki. (yogurt, cucumber and garlic) Had it with lettuce and cucumber. You could easily have this if you are at a greek restaurant or deli. Just don't eat the pita bread ;-)

Dinner; organic red leaf lettuce, organic cherry tomatoes, yellow pepper, cucumber (a lot of it), scallions and a the following dressing...... some vegenaise, little olive oil and roasted garlic balsamic vin. Makes a really yummy dressing and a little different. Try it.

Thursday, July 5, 2007

Smile...and the world smiles with you.


3 scrambled (omega) eggs, sauteed baby spinach, tomato, scallions, yellow pepper and a small piece of serrano pepper. Coffee ( I drink my coffee when I wake up, I eat usually around 9)

Hope everyone had a great day, and hope you thought for a few seconds of all the brave people who willing or unwilling put their lives at stake for our freedom.

Hump day.......interesting.

Who started calling it "hump day"?. It's sad isn't it? Unless we are talking "hump day" as in we are leaving the office at lunch, for a quickie at home ;-) That's a good hump day.
But other wise, it insinuates that the week is a drag....and that we've arrived at the mid way point. I remember Tony robbins once saying "A week consists of 7 days, how sad that most people just live for 2 (Sat. and Sun.)"
Sorry......back to food.

Cup of coffee, 3 large stalks of Bok choy, 5 asparagus stalks, 1/4 of a red pepper, one scallion, left over grass fed hamburger patty.
Sauted all of it in a little olive oil, and then added some home made chimichurra sauce (so easy to make, so usefull) Delicious right?

Lunch; Client lunch at a restaurant.......
Grilled piece of chicken over romaine lettuce. no dressing large glass of water.
Want to know what my customers ate?

Tuesday, June 5, 2007

Make sure you get outside

Being outside is important for your health. Sun makes us feel good, don't over do it, build up slowly, bu I don't think human skin was designed to be wearing sunscreen.
What does this have to do with food?????????????? is just real nice outside.
and sitting at my desk is not helping the situation.

Busy....but not too busy to eat right and feel good ;-)

Here's yesterday's summary of foods;
Breakfast was some left over turkey burger, with some asparagus stalks and left over salad.
Lunch; short on time, grabbed lunch at a salad bar in a large health food supermarket.
Some oven roasted turkey and some pulled rotisserie chicken, raw zucchini some peppers, some sunflower and pumpkin seeds some olive oil.
Kept it a light day as I had a client dinner.

Dinner; steakhouse, grilled piece of ribeye, sauteed spinach glass of red wine. Too much food, but I enjoyed it.

So today, some calorie restriction.
Breakfast; 2 boiled eggs (egg white only, handful of grapes, 5 almond)
Lunch, few bites of grilled chicken, some lettuce and tomato.
Dinner will most likely consit of a glass of red wine and early night sleep.

Friday, June 1, 2007

Flavor days......bland days.

I hope you're seeing that eating healthy and natural doesn't mean no flavor. I use many different marinades to give food some spectacular flavors. Food is to be enjoyed.
However......balance is key. Have some days when the food you make is bland. give the taste buds a rest. Example is BREAKFAST this morning;

4 boiled eggs, cut up small organic zucchini, a few strips yellow and orange peppers cut up, 4 asparagus stalks cut up. A few blue berries. Simple right?

If you're shopping this weekend.....try and find some "roasted balsamic vinaigrette" it's wonderful and I will share some ways on how to use it.

more and more info

Starting to see more and more research and information on the merrits of having a food intake based on lean meats , vegetables and fruits. Let me know if you would like links or info.


Had some grilled mahi left over from last night, so made it into a "mahi salad" sorta like tuna salad only better and fresher. Mahi, spoon full of vegenaise, thin sliced celery (a lot of it) and 4/5 organic cherry tomatoes. some fresh cracked pepper. Accompanied with large handful of grapes.

What's your opinion of this blog? Helpful, inspirational, boring? Would love to know either way.

Lunch, Grilled natural chicken thighs (try this marinade; some olive oil, fresh garlic, pepper and some chardonnay) huge portion of sauteed spinach with garlic and a few cherry tomatoes. I was hungry ;-)
Just as an FYI, I don't have time to grill in the middle of the day, not retired....yet. But grilled those chicken thighs the night before with the Mahi. A little planning really helps, if you are deciding to try and eat this way.

Dinner; small grilled piece of fresh scrod. (again a marinade for you; a tablespoon of honey, some tamari sauce (soy sauce will do, but more flavor from the tamari and you don't need to use as much) splash of rice vinegar, splash of sesame oil) together with a salad consisting of red leaf letuce, cucumber, and some tomato. 2 glasses of red wine.

Friday, May 25, 2007

Home cooked meals.

After yesterday's restaurant feasts, was happy to have my home cooked meals.
Took it light for the day.

Breakfast; some left over grilled chicken breast. one small avocado.

Lunch; grapes and some walnuts

the weather is starting to get hotter here, so drinking a little more and eating a little less. (not much though)

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

Smile, and the world smiles with you.......

Can you feel it??????? Smile a lot today.....and see what happens.

Marinated grilled natural chicken breast, some endive, spinach and carrots.
Very satisfying after my morning workout....anybody ever work with those plastic discs you stand on?

Green salad with green beans with seared tuna. (at a restaurant, just told them to hold all dressings and sauces.)
It was a "client entertainment day" so after lunch.......had to have dinner in a restaurant also.

Upscale steak house; ( pretty easy to eat healthy in those) I couldn't resist the temptation; I had a nice steak with steamed broccoli, steamed asparagus. Glass of red wine. When you eat out, try not to eat the big portions. A usual steak is between 12 and 16 ounces, it's way to much. train yourself to eat half of that.

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Sun is shining, weather is sweet.....

Well that's what this morning looked like anyway.....thank you Bob Marley for the lyrics.

Breakfast; some crab legs (so easy, boil water 3 minutes ..done) to make a yummy salad with.

Dressing, a teaspoon o vegenaise, teaspoon olive oil, table spoon roasted garlic balsamic vinegar. a little sliver of habanero pepper cut up. mix together. Wow right???????? Well, at least I was excited about it this morning....

Grilled piece sea bass over a green salad, with tomato, red onion. I had this at a simple local seafood restaurant/store. Even a business lunch can be healthy...............wanna know what my client ate?

was on the later side due to hectic work and kids schedule; had some almonds late afternoon to tie me over. Dinner was one small avocado, one natural ground turkey breast patty (approx 2 ounces) just quickly sauteed in some olive oil. (if you make it flat, it cooks quickly without drying out) handul of raw spinach, drizzled with some red pepper/shallot dressing. ( real simple to make) One big glass of red wine.

Monday, May 21, 2007


I love garlic......but sometimes feel bad for my coworkers and the mosquitos here in Florida.
It's amazing really, when I consume raw garlic (in my salad dressings), I notice a huge difference with how the little gnats effect me. No bites and hardly any landings.
Back to food.
Good breakfast about an hour after a 30 minute weight workout.
3 eggs, left over cut up chicken sausage. Some asparagus, some salad, yellow pepper and some garlic hot sauce. spicy and very tasty.

Lunch; some left over grass fed beed, spinach salad, cucumbers, scallions, red pepper and garlic/olive oil dressing

Tuesday, May 8, 2007

Tuesday May 1st, 2007

Happy May.
Breakfast 4 boiled eggs, one yolk. a few almonds. some cantelope, some mango slices, some apple slices.

Lunch; grilled chicken breasts (one trick to delicious NOT DRY variety, marinate in lime juice overnight, then add marinade of choice for another few hours. homemade is best) cut up bok choy, celery, asparagus and a small tomato. mix together. the veggies are raw as the chicken is nice and warm, makes for a great contrast.
