Dear Chocolate, I am Already Having Withdrawals….

I dislike resolutions immensely.  First of all, I rarely succeed at any of the high expectations I set for myself and when I do fail, I feel like, well….a failure.  In my teens, I would set resolutions like “lose 10 pounds by March 1st.”  Looking back, I didn’t even need to lose 10 pounds!  As I got older and slightly wiser, I’d change my resolutions to something like “lose 50 pounds this year….” – are you seeing  a pattern?  Total failure, and I would give up by the springtime.  In the last several years, I’d silently commit to “eating healthier,” “being healthier,” “being more active.”  An improvement, but slightly noncommittal.  I am not setting any resolutions this year, although at the beginning of every year I’m ready to eat “healthy” again.

  • Easy Crustless Quiche

    This is a fantastic recipe that is easily adapted to whatever you really love in your quiche.

    7 egg whites;
    1.5 C skim milk
    (for quiche shown)
    Add 1 C chopped vidalia onion (sauteed in oil first)
    1 chopped red pepper (sauteed with onion)
    1 10 oz. box of spinach (also sauteed)

    Heat oven to 450 and bake for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 375 for an additional 30 minutes. During the last 15 mins. add approximately 2 C of sharp cheddar cheese.

    This will yield approximately 6 large pieces, amounting to around 110 calories per piece.

  • Thought to Keep in Mind on the Journey

    Failure is merely a perception; with each effort, we get the ability to start over again.
