Monday, May 10, 2021      14 comments

SparkFriends are such good resources. JEANKNEE shared how the word "nourish" helped her. I am trying to say that word internally to myself as I prepare my meals. It is the right focus. In continuation of my last blog, WATERMELLEN asked what... Read more

NOT Going Back
Monday, April 12, 2021      13 comments

I finished reading the book, "Intuitive Eating" by Tribole and Resch. The subtitle is "A Revolutionary Anti-Diet Approach". I did find it fascinating, and very different from anything else I've ever read about dieting and nutrition. There ... Read more
