A few days ago, I was listening to yet another book telling me how THEIR diet was the best program to follow. I listened for a while, at least 30 minutes, but started zoning out, because my mind wandered to my own principles I’ve started following for optimal health and fitness.
I’m developing my Principles of Eating Green. Maybe this is the start to yet ANOTHER book, but for now I’m really using this blog as an idea bouncy-board. I have 13 (ish) principles which I want to delve into further.
I think I may have read myself out on books about eating healthy. There are seven trillion books about diet, nutrition, and eating lifestyles. I feel I may have read them all.
I’ve been reading quite a few books helping me in my quest to find a perfect Eating Green model. So far, I’m finding that a little more difficult than I anticipated. My research and experience is showing there is no “perfect model”, but taking a little from each program and expert I discover.

Today was a lesson in how to practice sustainability and healthy eating while still enjoying your treats. It was a special occasion for my CrossFit gym. The old owners are moving to New Orleans and wanted to have a going away party. We all wanted our new lords and masters to feel welcome with pomp…
Have you hugged your farmer today? I almost missed my chance to do so. Every year, Chris and I sign up for a CSA- community supported agriculture. Last year, though, we received some bad news. Our normal farm-share, Ebb Tide, was closing up shop. We needed to find another farm. Luckily we live on Whidbey…
