Real Food & Mile runs

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – First a bit of food. It’s really all about eating real food. That’s where the sweet spot lies. You can fine tune for yourself from there but first get your body changed up by eating REAL (home made) FOOD 95% of the time. Do this for 6 months and watch what type of results you’ll have. Like so…just REAL FOOD: and some of this type of stuff:   Are carrots a bit like the red headed stepchild in your fridge? My solution: use them in your saute and stir frys BUT slice thin and cook f… Read more

Let’s Get in Better Shape- Feel Good Eating Style

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Hi Everyone, So now for something completely different, I’m going to do a “Get in Better Shape” series…with a twist. This will be a “Get in Better Shape” series done together with my amazing son! He’s truly a stellar kid. He might be very handsome like his grandpa- but it is his huge heart that defines him. Even though he will be taller than his old man (not too hard to do), very much like his pop, he grew up a lot shorter and skinnier than his peers. 3 years ago (a… Read more

The End is Just the Beginning

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – So here you go for a few good laughs…. Curious why I love the water so much?? As you can see that love affair started early. My dad and I anno 1973-74. As you know from a few posts back, my dad was not doing well. I just returned back from Amsterdam again, this time for the funeral. It’s an awkward thing, shoveling dirt onto a casket of a parent, but while it was happening, I truly felt the beauty and chaos of it all. Even though it was my dad and my best friend…it meant nothing to me. It … Read more

Sans Espoir et Sans Regret…

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating –   Part of the lyrics a song my dad likes so very much… “without hope and without regrets” My Dad and I, anno 1967 I have nothing more of value to post for anyone at this point. I believe most can be found in a better version somewhere online…so throwing in the towel for a while. BE HAPPY… Read more

It’s a BIG, SMALL world out there…

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – We went to Europe for a few quick days. My wonderful dad is dying so wanted to say good bye and give him lots of kisses and love. Also wanted the little bambino to kiss him and sit on his belly one more time. They sure had some weird and deep “soul communication” going on. It was pretty dang neat to see. It would be hard to snap a picture like this in Dallas Texas:   “things” are just very very different in Europe. Amsterdam is approx. 5000 miles from Dallas, TX. Until not so … Read more

Happy Summer, pondscum and more…

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Did you know that in ancient Egypt, summer was considered the start of the new year? The annual flooding of the Nile coincided with the summer solstice. I’ve always felt that power the summer seems to posses. Not sure if it stayed with me since I was a kid and just sooo happy for summer vacation, or if it’s something deeper than that. Summer to me is just pure joy. Summer makes me feel free… I hope it has the same effect on some of you reading this. Again going back to childhood, Europe i… Read more

Food and Be Creative…

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Food first I guess, here you go. Simple and quick.     Keep it simple and easy. Cooking elaborate dishes is one thing, but the day to day also has to be convenient and you simply don’t have everything you need on hand at all times. So keep it simple and keep it real.   Toasted up a corn tortilla over open flame and filled it with some zucchini, salami, onion saute. topped with a tiny bit of cheese. Here dinner in a pinch, again simple and easy. Saute some left over boiled and cooled pot… Read more

Simpler…

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – I had a wonderful time last week in Tucson Arizona. Not only did I get to see one of the oldest, ranches in the state, but this “dude-ranch” allows you to truly experience the wild wild west from horseback. Being a little Dutch boy growing up in Amsterdam in the 70’s, Western Movies were a significant part of my childhood. TV, was not 24/7 when I grew up. Actually, until 6pm, if you turned on the tv you got a “test screen” on all 3 available channels at that time, the exception… Read more

Simple and an Amazing Salad Dressing

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – A  simple , SUSTAINED switch to eating REAL FOOD, has the potential to be a real game changer in regards to overall well being and enjoying yourself day to day. Make it EASY & SIMPLE for yourself and the family to prepare real food meals. Make sure the fridge and pantry are stocked with simple real foods you know how to make and are quick to prepare. My beautiful wifey and I just the other day were once again expressing or gratitude for our CSA. Every week, with kids in tow, they pick up our weekly fa… Read more

Real Food, Whole Food…Peasant Food

Feel Good Eating
Feel Good Eating – Hat tip to Richard Nikoley for bringing “Peasant Food” back unto the talk track. Below, my version of peasant food. My mom’s nails somehow made it into the right of the pic, but hey, since she requested “my potatoes”, it’s fitting. Simple potato dish with, onion, garlic and a little bit of chicken.     I’ve got quite some “reporting” to do. Not just about food and what I really feel the sweet spot is, but also in regards to exercise, meditation… Read more
