Food Banking with Allergies

I haven’t talked a lot about food banks and food pantries in the past because I thought we made too much to qualify for them. On Fred’s railroad retirement we make just a tiny bit too much to qualify for food stamps and most other programs for low income people. At the beginning of this month […]

Winter Update 2017

Hey everyone. It was brought to my attention (Thanks Mel 🙂 ) that people worry about me when I am gone for months and months on end. I apologize. I forget that my internet family loves me and worries when I am gone for so very long. This year, as part of my New Year’s Resolutions, I […]

Brownies for Sinners & Gluttons

If you’re looking for sensible gluten free brownies that taste good while being low in calories, fat and carbohydrates, then be aware! These are not the brownies for you. If you want brownies that you can eat and still respect yourself in the morning, then you would be better pleased to look elsewhere for your treat. […]

Daily Menu, March 10, 2016

I thought beets counted as a vegetable, but my nutritional software is counting it as a starch.

The chocolate chips were a middle of the night thing. I went looking for a banana and the chocolate chips ambushed me. Still, I felt good about this day. I managed to plan my meals more carefully and was able to take more time to do my prep work. Also measuring and weighing is becoming […]

Daily Menu, March 6, 2016

I think of dieting as being like a horse. I ride the horse, and sometimes the horse bucks me off. It hurts my pride, bruises my ego, but it doesn’t stop me from getting where I’m going. When I ride a horse, I always risk the possibility of getting tossed off. That doesn’t mean I […]

Maggie's Original Wholesome Chocolate Chip Cookies

When you publish recipes on the internet sometimes they grow wings and fly around to places you (I) never expected. In 2001, back when we still ate wheat, but after I was diagnosed with PCOS, and trying to increase my use of whole wheat flour, I wanted a chocolate chip cookie that my kids would […]

Peach Crisp From Canned Peaches

I have a small collection of economical, nutritious, low sugar, low sodium, low fat, whole grain rich desserts that are really, really good. Good enough that you don’t mind eating them if you’re not on a diet. Big enough that you never feel deprived or frustrated by portion size. When I say that my peach crisp is good, […]
