Beware of Baby Friendly

Precious Baby is 2 weeks old.  He is alert, making eye contact, growing stronger, and sleeping well.  Sounds perfect, and he is, but there were several moments when such a wonderful outcome could have ended in disaster.  The rights that women like myself fought for in the 1980s have morphed into what is called the […]

Greens I never knew existed

Now that the weather is getting cooler, I am getting greens every week in the box from the organic farm.  Some are beneficial favorites like collards, kale, and spinach.  But there are a surprising number of greens that I have never heard of. Sweet potato greens – Obviously these are the tops to sweet potatoes.  […]

How is DD feeling?

My Darling Daughter writes a blog about motherhood.  Her latest blog talks about how she has exercised and eaten during her pregnancy.  I thought you might enjoy it.  As you know, if you have followed my blog through the years, DD is a Type A.  Her 3-year old son BC is also Type A.  Her […]

Veggies for brunch

What do you do when the organic farm has sent more squash and beets and potatoes than you know what to do with in the same week when your Book Club is meeting at your house?  You serve veggies for brunch. The Book Club rotates our meeting place among the participants.  Most of the time […]

I’m squashed

A long time ago another BTD blogger wrote about his belief that all the food he ate should be fresh and locally grown.  He made a passionate case.  I held my peace and said nothing, but I totally disagreed.  I remember my first thought was, “How awful to live your entire life and never taste […]

Sitting is the new smoking

I would be embarrassed to search back through my blogs from the past few years and see how many times I have posted about research which warns me that I sit too much I am hardly a couch potato!   I exercise every weekday morning with two friends. I run, ride my bike or walk […]

Back from Alaska

What a wonderful adventure we have had.  My Honorable Husband and I did an Inside Passage Cruise, then we met our kids and their families in Anchorage and did a big loop with them, hiking every day. We saw three varieties of bears, caribou, moose, Dall sheep, and more eagles than we could count.  We […]

Finding out about Fennel

Fennel is a beneficial food for my Type A husband.  It is neutral for Type O me, though it is a frequent neutral in some of Dr. D’s books about targeted conditions.  I remember looking at it when I first went on the BTD, and not buying it because I had no idea what to […]

We’ve come a long way

Yesterday I had an unusually busy day at work.  I had a meeting in town in the morning, another meeting in the afternoon, and half a dozen errands to run as well.  I had planned to go home for lunch, but the morning meeting went longer than expected.  It didn’t make sense to drive home […]

Curly Kale and Baby Kale

One of the reasons I like getting the box from the organic garden. It pushes me to eat beneficial foods that are less enticing. I know kale is really good for me.  Virtually every time Dr. D puts out a graphic with a list of beneficial foods for a certain issue, kale is on it.  […]
