@ip3285   I love your "Healthy Body Smiling Mind" and I wholeheartedly agree with your opinion ❤️❤️

I try to eat blueberries, the super fruit, kale, the super vegetable, and quinoa, the super grain, every day. I avoid beef but often eat fish and chicken. I eat no pastry and little bread, usually whole wheat. By eating a lot of fruit and vegetables, I have enjoyed excellent health and kept my weight, blood pressure, C-reactive protein, triglycerides, and cholesterol in the normal range. I drink no liquids with calories aside from skim milk and wine occasionally. I truly enjoy food and have found that nutritious foods are also very delicious.

Just back from a whirlwind trip to another state. We packed sardines, bananas, boiled eggs, veggie rich whole wheat pasta salad, nuts, apples, avocado, organic crackers and some bruschetta. Also lettuce and an olive, yogurt/mustard, onion capers mix and three slices of organic whole wheat bread. 

 

We ate sardines and olive mix on lettuce; fruit for an on-the-road picnic; pasta salad for dinner (carbo loading before an athletic event); boiled egg and avocado on toast and a banana for breakfast; a simple ham sandwich (the free athlete's lunch: worst-for-you food all trip) for lunch, and stopped at Walmart for an organic salad and some calorie free, salt free, carb free, sugar free dressing (with some sunflower seeds on top) for dinner and an organic apple, split a banana at around midnight (we arrived home at 6AM).

 

Easy peasy to eat what serves your body while on the road. Really. 

 

Or so I think, anyway. 🙂

We eat an organic plant based diet - nothing with a mother or a face. It is delicious and hopefully a healthy choice. Would never go back to eating the SAD diet, we do not take any Rx and grateful for that.

I think it is hysterical to refer to the Standard American Diet as the SAD diet..  what a play on words.  However, it is not very effective.  LOL
