Cabbage, Onions, Garlic & Raw Pumpkin Seeds

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Strange title for a post I know, but hey I’m waaaayyy out of practice. has it really been over month that I managed to get a post up? Wow… Time does really fly when you’re having fun. Cabbage is GOOD for you (assuming you don’t have some scary disease/problem/malfunction for which it is not advised). How good you ask? Here , here and here. I love geeking out on all this stuff, I enjoy reading about these things, just as some people like to read baseball stats. Totally not my thing, b… Read more

Keep it Enjoyable

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – That’s my advice anyway. Whether it is work, exercise, food, play, finances, etc etc, when you keep it enjoyable, you will keep doing what you ENJOY doing. It’s so simple and yet… So if we take exercise as an example;   Gorgeous Sunday morning 10 mile bike ride with my wifey and small fry. Even though this requires a bit of physical effort (especially if where you live has lot of hills), you can take your time and really enjoy being out in nature and time with your loves ones or by yo… Read more

Feel Good Insight, for Me at Least

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating –   You know, most of us really do put forth the effort. Diet, work, relationships, exercise etc etc. We DO really TRY (especially since OUR OWN truth is what WE believe is the truth). Don’t argue with me yet, hear me out. But “just effort” simply gets you no-where. We need to find a way in our own lives to connect effort with what we truly want. Most of us want to be in charge of our selves , we want to eat better, we want to exercise more, we want to be a better partner, we want to sa… Read more

Dog Food

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Yup dog food… I tried to do a bit of research on “dog-food” years ago but it was hard to really pinpoint anything of value. Over the years I’ve simply gone with common sense and went with the assumption that “commercial dog food” is a bit like “baby-formula” , it keeps you fed and alive, but I don’t think you thrive from it. A bit like industrial oils, “can’t believe its not butter” and other strange foods, dog food is also a relatively… Read more

Lunch- Fridge to Table in 15 Minutes

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Pretty straight forward lunch- Let’s build: Saute 1-2 cloves of garlic and 1/4 of a big onion in your choice of fat (you need just a little bit). When translucent- Add 1/2 sliced zucchini (large one). Cook with onions and garlic until ready. Don’t turn it to mush, bit it shouldn’t be as crunchy as raw cucumber either. Find the consistency YOU like best. I added 1 medium size pre-cooked chicken sausage to this. Cut in bite size pieces and heat the sausage the last minutes of cooking your d… Read more

Oats – CARBS are SO BAD for YOU!?

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Title of the post a bit tongue in cheek of course… But when was the last time for all you paleo’s, primals, ancestrals you had some yummy rolled oats for breakfast? Is this a really bad for you breakfast above? I know it’s all over Pintrest et al, but I had never seen these “overnight fridge oats” thingies. My beautiful wifey made us some and it got an immediate thumbs up from me (as well as all the kids in the house). Basically you take oats, add some yogurt or milk/almond mi… Read more

BBQ – Small Portions

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating –   Just a quick snapshot of the BBQ lunch from this past Labor day weekend. Chicken, a few shrimp and meat (boneless short ribs). I made some of the meat with just sea salt. Sprinkle the meat liberally with course sea salt and put in the fridge over night. The other portion of meat I made with the following marinade: splash of dark rum, fresh garlic, fresh chili pepper (decide how hot you want it and add accordingly), oil (I used avocado) and a little bit of soy sauce. Be careful with the rum….you… Read more

Basil and Getting Fat

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – My small amateur garden exceeded expectations this year. My basil TREE (lol) was huge this year. This is the first basil “harvest” (besides from picking leaves all summer when needed) and represents about 1/3 of the basil bush. Basil freezes well, so will freeze some and make large batch of pesto and freeze that also. Tons of jalapenos, habaneros, chilis, tomatoes, peaches and mint this year. The tomatoes (roma variety) were simply exceptional. Picking a tomato in your garden, warm from the sun,… Read more

Sandwich Lunch

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Yet different 🙂     Told you it was different:   Sorry for the truly crappy pictures, but wanted to quickly share lunch. Started with an organic roll from Rudi’s Bakery. Quick note on bread.. I eat it, not all the time. Biggest change for me is that I hardly ever eat “crap-flour”. If I’m eating bread “commercial- bread”, I make sure its organic flour _ NON ENRICHED_. When it comes to bread a few things to keep in mind, its very easy to eat too much and b… Read more

Breakfast-Different-Feel Good

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Some mornings I’m simply hungrier than others. I let my cravings mostly dictate what I eat as my first meal. I’m guess I’m lucky in a way that I never crave pancakes or french toast (then again, you do loose your taste for that type of stuff over time when you never eat it). So being a bit hungry, look at this perfect little fat, carb and protein “vegetarian” breakfast.   Half an avocado cut in half, filled with hummus. Little bit of tomato and onion on the side and a driz… Read more
