confession: anger journal.

I’m one of those people who really struggles with the kinds of emotions that I would never, ever want to burden anyone else with.  Sorry to my English-teacher sister for the dangling participle, but it’s true.  The only person who really sees the depths of darkness and frustration is the Hub, and he really didn’t ask for that privilege.  My mom gets a little bit … Continue reading confession: anger journal.

Buddha Bowl Addict.

I confess.  I’m a self-proclaimed addict of the trendy food-lovers’ salad of today ~ the Buddha Bowl. I could eat one every single day.  And it would be really smart for me to do so.  It’s full of all the things that really make me feel amazing:  fresh, vibrantly-colored vegetables, mostly raw, nuts, seeds, fruits, maybe a little protein or grain added, and a homemade … Continue reading Buddha Bowl Addict.

Day 21?

Okay, I COMPLETELY forgot to post anything on the last day of the reset!  TERRIBLE!  So here’s my belated last-day post! Not that I have anything interesting to say. I’ll tell you this:  I am eating a lot of not-on-plan things down here at the music convention I’m attending with the Hub, and it’s fine, but I know this will end soon.  Oh yes.  It … Continue reading Day 21?

Day 20!

One more day, y‘all!  One more day!!! I am definitely going to continue on for the full 30 days, but I promise I‘ll leave you alone after tomorrow!  I‘ll go back to my regular, random posts, and stop filling your inboxes with my daily highs and lows. I think this way of eating is so delicious, though.  I can‘t imagine stopping, although I’m sure I‘ll … Continue reading Day 20!

Day 18 & 19.

I cannot believe this is still happening!  Anyone tired of this dang posts? Don’t answer that.  I’m tired of myself at this point. Another hurdle yesterday!  I had a rare out-of-town gig with my lovely trio (shout-out to the amazing director, who works hard to get us gigs in this difficult market called the Midwest!) We always stop after the performance and get something really … Continue reading Day 18 & 19.

Whole 30 Italian Night.

This post is coming to you late because I‘m really behind on life.  And stressed, and unfocused.  Praying this will pass! Tuesday night‘s din din was MY kind of food ~ pasta!!!  Only, made with Whole 30 compliant ingredients ~ YAHOO! I wanted to make Lidia’s famous Pasta Trio, but I figured only two kinds of “pasta” would do. Here’s what we ate: Sweet Potato … Continue reading Whole 30 Italian Night.
