Lately I've been thinking a lot about food. This came about just following the generally disgusting feeling I had over the holidays as I consumed everything in sight without regard for reasonable portions or the long-term health of my body. Like millions of others (and just like a sheep), I headed out to the bookstore on New Years Day to explore books about diet and to search for an optimistic new beginning.

I have a good friend who is braving a 6-week vegan detox diet. I admire her sense of adventure, and I love it that, when we come over, she still makes my husband ice cream sundaes dripping with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. What a generous hostess she is!

I considered the diet my friend has embarked upon, but decided instead to modify my diet by replacing 50% or more of my meat and dairy calories with vegetable calories. Mark Bittman wrote about his own modified approach to healthy eating here, and I was inspired. He also wrote a book recently, that I'm tempted to buy.

I'm exploring yummy vegetarian Indian recipes, like Aloo Gobi and rice and split pea pancakes.
If you have inspiring recipes to share, please do!

The boys have been cooking too. On the menu: Marshmallow with sea salt and honey, on a bed of green play dough and Grapefruit Honey Soup (see recipe below).

I also am going to try and improve my family's diet this year. Cooking Light magazine has some great vegetarian recipes. I just subscribed to the magazine, but you can also get many of the recipes online at their Web site. They also have some great articles on nutrition and exercise. Good luck!
I have had the Rebar Modern Cookbook(vegetarian)sitting on my bookshelf for a couple of years and just recently started using it again and I love all the recipes.
Yaay! Glad to see you back blogging Molly! i missed your views and perspectives! (In written form of course since I'm lucky enought to get them in person regularly!)
Good luck with your diet. I always have the hardest time staying with mine.
I too love the Rebar cookbook (from Victoria!), but my fav is Debra Madison's "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone".
Got your message, thanks for the well wishes!Julian is fantastic and growing fast. Hope your cuties are doing great.
love, aspen
Try macrobiotic eating. I've been somewhat attempting to eat this way not to lose weight but to see if it helps with my allergies and insomnia. Both which are getting better. Nothing like eating brown rice and miso soup to get you to lose weight.

On a side note, I can't wait to see you and Luke in march. I've got butterflies in my stomach thinking about it.
