Salad and Falafel

Continuing the healthy eating trend.

This was delicious salad and falafel with tzatziki sauce and Italian dressing. 

It was so fresh and good.

Honestly, I wanted to eat more of this. 

Who needs all the junk foods. 

This looks good, tastes good, and is good for you!  😉

Tuna Salad – Eating Healthy

Intermittent fasting is going, thank G-d well. 


When I broke my fast today, I had a healthy salad with tuna fish. 


Dieting and eating healthy, and feeling good about it!


All the processed food is completely addictive and 100% poison!


Broke the addiction and I don’t plan to go back to the corrupt food industry fools that don’t care for atom about the people, but rather just the profits. 


Fruit, vegetables fish, nuts, seeds, and tea. 


The fleecing of America by all the processed food players–it’s disgusting.


I’m detoxing and I am grateful to G-d for helping me through this and showing me the way! 😉

Cold-Press Fruits and Veggies

We starting watching this movie with Joe Cross called, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.”


This guy weighs a ton and goes on a 60-day all juicing diet.  


He stops all the food and just carries his juicer with him everywhere making fresh fruit and vegetable cold-press. 


While obviously a little extreme, I like the idea of reducing the food intake (especially everything gluten which is death itself), and replacing it with healthy juice. 


I tried one of the super green juices and it literally tasted like eating grass. 


Uh, that’s not gonna realistically work for me. 


So I settled on Evolution’s Organic Super Fruit Greens that has a combination of orange, mango, pineapple, cucumber, spinach, romaine, and kale. 


I actually like it and am sitting here sipping on one as I write this blog post. 


I went into the fridge and threw all the carbs in the freakin garbage–good riddance!


Gotta get and stay healthy!  😉

Duck Donuts Don’t

A colleague brought these unbelievable fresh, hot, Duck Donuts into the office yesterday. 


Each one weighs like a brick and is so full of carbohydrate good(bad)ness. 


I had to use all my self-control and willpower not to eat any (or all) of these. 


It comes down to mind over matter–If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter!  😉

Out of Control Ice Cream

I’m not sure how you control yourself around this Alpaca Ice Cream.


But somehow I managed not to get any…this time.  


I promise!  


LOL


These are made with fresh hot waffles wrapped around your choice of ice cream and toppings. 


As you can see these are pretty big and scrumptious!


Anyway, they have a store in Rockville and I absolutely must stay away from it. 


Oh, maybe I just go in once for a taste.  😉

Rainbow Cake :)

Rainbow cake is happy. 


Price is not bad for $3.99.


Calories are horrific at 750!


What happened to the broken blue part of the cake at the bottom–maybe that’s where another 50 calories got lopped off. 


Anyway, it’s Friday and I want to wish everyone a happy Rainbow Cake weekend and a Shabbat Shalom!

Take Your Head Out of My Shopping Cart

So this was funny today at Harris Teeter. 


I’m checking out on the express line with a few things. 


First some tofu.


The lady at the cash register goes:

Hmm.  Healthy!


Then some Meal Mart Buffalo Style Chicken Wings.


Again, the lady at the cash register comments:

Have you tried that?  Is it good?  It looks good!


Politely, I replied:

Yes, they are really good.


At the same time I was feeing smart-alecy, like what the heck, should I open the package on the conveyer belt and let you taste one–right here, right now.   


Sure privacy is a big issue when it comes to technology, social media, and all sorts of surveillance these days


But even when one simply goes to the grocery store–there is the very basic privacy about what one is buying. 


Yes, I see people looking into my cart, with eyebrows raised eyeing my goodies.  I can hear them thinking:

What is he buying?  Is it marked Kosher? (Uh, actually it is!]  That doesn’t seem like a balanced diet!


Another time, the checkout person asked me when I was buying a bunch of something:

Oh, are you having a party? What’s the occasion?


While I appreciate the good-natured banter and people being friendly, it seems more than weird in a way to be discussing what I’m buying, why, and for whom.  


Not quite Big Brother, but maybe that’s the leftover small town feel in our lonely urban and high-tech living.  😉
