Bluesberries rock!

Blueberry shakes, fresh blueberries, blueberries and cream, blueberry pie... you name it. Go, blueberries. Had some for breakfast yesterday and today. More tomorrow, before I run out. :) 8)



(A moment of silence, on my part, in remembrance of my blueberry pie friend who passed away from brain cancer last year. :cry: :D :notworth:)

How do you keep fresh peaches for two weeks? Mine always rot faster than that. :x Fridge? 8) :)
They were rather firm when I got them so I've been eating them in order of ripeness. I just put the last 6 in the refrigerator this morning.
Ah. 8)

My Mom and I were just plotting today about doing some peach and tomato canning next year. There are a bunch of orchards and farms near me, it seems. So I'll buy the canning equipment, etc. And she'll come and teach me to can on my own. Something to pass down to later generations. 8) Moms rock. :rocker: 8) :D :notworth:
Moms definitely rock. :)

I LOVE berries! A pound of blueberries would be astronomically expensive in this country. Several years ago, when I was travelling through the Baltic States, there were old women selling huge plastic bags of blueberries and we bought some and totally munched down! I hadn't done that in my many years in Japan...

A lot of the health and weight-loss literature these days is recommending five or six small meals a day, to boost the metabolism and help control appetite.

What do you guys/gals think about that? Or do you stick with the basic three-square meals tradition? 8)
For years I ate this way... three small meals and two snacks. Breakfast was the main (largest) meal, then mid-morning snack, small lunch, ,mid-afternoon snack, small evening meal.

Now I'm living with someone who needs a substantial evening meal, and I'm finding it difficult to adjust... I go to bed feeling bloated. :(

Yes. It's interesting how few of the health and diet regimens take the impact of your family/roommates into account. :?

Why cannot your housemate have the substantial meal and you just take a smaller plate? :?

I already do the smaller plate thing, but it still feels quite substantial compared to what I used to eat in the evening. My old regimen was to eat carbs early in the day, finishing off with a small, low-carb evening meal. Doesn't suit my SO though so I cook high-carb meals in the evening now. I don't like the idea of cooking separate meals nor do I have time for that.

I did the small meals throughout the day for awhile then founded to be too exhausting - i was constantly eating throughout the day, didn't gain any weight, but it's just annoying.

Right now my housemate is on a diet where she does not have sugra/carbs...South Beach....still there is noodles/potatoes/rice/bread... something for the others. I drink, have chocolate etc which she doesn't. For instance she cooked chicken and rice. I had rice and chicken and she just had the chicken. Something to consider..I guess... :wink: :)

Annoying? Really? Hmm. I started with the small years a few years back and now it's just a habit. I don't think about it much. 8)

well, the thought of constant eating is quite disruptive esp when you're busy throughout the day. I sometimes ended up skipping 2-3 meals when i'm not careful.....

Mini-meals can be as simple as a cup of yogurt, a piece of fruit or a couple crackers with cheese, you know. It doesn't have to be a big deal. I usually do about 200 calories worth; that's not much. 8)

The idea's absolutely great, but most of the time i just forget them altogether. There had been a period that i decided to snack on apples every afternoon, so i bring in a fresh apple every morning, the problem? by the end of the week, sometimes i've got 5-6 apples sitting on my desk. yes, yes, i shouldn't have brought in more apple if i didn't finish the one from the day before....

You're not the first person I've heard say that.

Here's the deal, from my perspective. Habits don't get formed by osmosis. For the first couple (or three or four) weeks, you're going to have to remind yourself to do it. After that, it becomes automatic. 8)
