The daily diet particulars may vary any given week, month, or year; but this is not about food. Finally the day has dawned, and I’ve added a distinguishable link for Books to my blog menu. This post is noticeably short, because I want you to go there. and my angels around me in unison sing, ‘Hallelujah!’ The bookshelves of individuals is great insight into personality, am I right? I left out some categories. You’ll especially notice if it’s a particular genre which occupies a lot of your reading. I hint at others. Books are personal. They take up residence in both our minds and our homes, or in data on our tools. They need readers to even exist. A book … Read More

Firstly: I could cry. I just spent over an hour on this post, to have it not publish and get lost in the ether. I pray this doesn’t come across as some abbreviated version from distress and anger. 🙁 I’m currently trying to write the impossible. Such as why another Sunday evening post delayed. I want to get some things right; or come across as objective as possible. It may be absurd of me to discuss eating behaviors and diets without inevitably pissing someone off. In my defense, we are living in a hypersensitive, easily aggrieved environment. When did we become this way? Why are people so slighted? Because we’ve all been given a voice, in the most unnecessary places … Read More

I like how this day looks. Its bit of symmetry. A palindrome. The addition and subtraction. I woke today with a mega to-do list, one of which was meeting a friend I haven’t seen in ages for coffee; of course I canceled. This is my modus operandi. Long ago I believed he had written me off, but lo… One of my personally subscribed task was baking for the office. Tomorrow is my one year anniversaire! I remember telling the owner-boss during the interview, I will firmly commit to two years. Halfway through the interview, the second-yet-equal broker came into the conference room to introduce himself and assess, and all he could ask me about was all of my travel; thus leading … Read More

Context is Key

I once went on a date with a golf pro, turned private golf lesson giver. He ate a cheeseburger and french fries with a knife and fork. We never went out again despite his enthusiasm. Plus, I’ve never been into ‘pretty boys’. The first time I went to Italy, I saw people eat pizza with a knife and fork; they also put corn on pizza! What.in.the.hell… We are currently living in a time of people wearing gym clothes to travel or grocery shop. We are also living on a planet of over 7 billion people -so it’s sure as hell difficult to classify anyone to anything anymore. No one is one dimensional. And whatever is being projected is never and … Read More

Maybe it was the start of summer, the heat lending to more cold fresh salad cravings -or the variety of fresh sweet fruit screaming ‘nature’s candy!’. There have been a handful of reasons why I’ve tweaked some personal habits in the last few months, like tea over coffee. One thing I’ve always known from years of having studied and one half year of having parasites, our digestion IS our immune system. This is why the axiom ‘food can heal, food can kill’ is so spot on. It is also a topic I am not shy about discussing. You know when things aren’t working, it effects everything. So yeah, this book Gut, The Inside Story of Our Bodies Most Underrated Organ … Read More
