All about removing meat and dairy from your diet.
"My recommendation for eating starches puts glazed looks on people’s faces, and many dismiss me as certifiably crazy. They think of starch as something used in the laundry to stiffen shirts.
Starch brings back memories of pasty bland-tasting goop, and white, airy Wonder Bread. Most disturbing is that nearly everyone believes starches are fattening and nutritionally inferior foods. Fortunately, common knowledge is completely wrong and the proof is right before your own eyes."
Hooray for the fox!

I've been a couch potato all day. Well, most of the day. I did finally pull up the dead “crops” in the vegetable garden at one point. And I did do some recycling, taking the paper, bottles, cans and plastic bags out of the trash cans and putting it into the appropriate recycle bins in the garage.
I tried to accomplish a few things on the computer(s), but everything's so damned slow, I usually said screw it before it finished whatever it was doing. Oh wait, how could I forget, I started off the day doing taxes because I have to file self-employment tax by Tuesday night. And I did take the dogs to the park while Tara took Elizabeth, well, all over town today, apparently.
They went to the Science Center, then McDonald’s, then the movies. I think there was something else, too. Tara was being extra nice because Elizabeth has had to endure these past few “snow days” at a particularly dreary school. We're both pretty upset about the local school district's decision to cancel school for THE ENTIRE WEEK last week, even though only Monday and maybe Tuesday saw bad road conditions in 99% of the county. School board members can't relate to us non-school-workers who DON'T get the day off whenever the kids do.
That 2011 Jetta's intelligent crash response system, or whatever it's called, looks like a great idea. Just saw the commercial. I love great ideas. Don't know if I'll ever buy a Jetta, but you never know.
Tara bought a used Jetta a few years after this post.
The Packers are beating up on the Falcons. I never have liked the Falcons. Earlier, I watched the Steelers squeak past the Baltimore Ravens. I don't really like either of those teams, but it's the playoffs, so I watch. If I had to choose, I'm glad the Steelers won. It was a much higher-scoring game than anyone expected.
