So much to Share so Little Time!

I feel like I'm always bursting at the seems to tell someone something that I think is important. That's probably why I adore twitter so much. But before I kick off memorial day weekend with a trail run with Jessica, and then head to Maine for computer-free camping with Jesse & crew, there are a fun things I need to share with you!

  • Why Calorie Restriction might not be the best thing Calorie Restriction for longevity is getting a lot of buzz lately and I really like this post RD Corinne Dobbas wrote. Personally I feel that once you start restricting calories to that level it is very very easy to become obsessive over food. Look at Ancel Keys starvation experiments during WWII Men with no prior disposition to disordered eating starting exhibiting behavior very similar to those seen in anorexic patients. Now give this restricted calorie program to a woman who has “dieted” or been body conscious for most of her life and that’s basically a recipe to disaster. Even beyond that-would it be worth living a year or two longer if you could barely enjoy the food presented in the next 5, 10, 20, 50 years???????????? Not in my world!!!!!!!
  • E is for Eggplant and J is for Jello and I am obsessed with this food alphabet
  • My two new summer beers are delightfully fruity. I highly recommend Abita's Strawberry Lager & 21st Amendment's Come Hell or High Watermelon Ale
  • Sugar Guilt? Truvia may not be all it claims and why you should never feel guilty about any kind of food-even sugar. read it and comment!
  • Mix a high-calorie dessert with melatonin-to help you relax? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me! read what I have to say about Lazy Cakes brownies here
And lastly, I leave you with my song. Like my song, my song. Like "Don't forget to play this at my wedding song." cause I'm fly like that.

Love the humor here. I will have to read/listen to Katie's speech, love's Amy P's commencement address. I agree regarding caloric restriction, what's a few more miserable years?
