Predictable

As I suspected, I did not get caught up last night. I did manage to get some pictures (and I got to play with my new flash and accessories!), but did not have time to edit and upload them.

Tonight. I promise.

Unless I go for a run…no. Tonight. It will happen. (more…)

Slacker

I didn’t take any pictures yesterday so I don’t have anything to show you. It was just one of those “life happens” days when all plans get tossed out the window.

I left my apartment at 6:45 a.m. to go to a women’s prayer meeting with some ladies from my church. It was an amazing experience, but, not being much of a morning person, I found myself running perpetually late, rushing from my apartment to the meeting and from the meeting to work. There wasn’t time to stop and smell the roses. (Literally. Yesterday’s photo assignment was “a smell you adore.” Though, I don’t actually like the smell of roses…) (more…)

What’s sweet & fluffy and not remotely orange?

The answer to yesterday’s name that product is: Cool Whip!

As for the beta carotene, what + orange = white? What does it look like BEFORE the coloring is added? Quite frankly, I’m not sure I want to know…

You Are What You Eat

Or so they say, but how many of us really know what’s in our foods?

Many processed foods have become such dietary staples that we sometimes forget that they are products of industry. How often do we stop to think about what’s in our rice cakes or peanut butter or yogurt? Until I began transitioning to real foods a few months ago, I never looked at labels (or, if I did, it was just to check calories and fat content). I trusted the USDA and the FDA regulatory policies: if a food was being sold, it was safe for consumption. Of course I knew a diet consisting exclusively of chips and cookies was unhealthy, but surely chips and cookies in moderation were OK. Otherwise, companies wouldn’t be allowed to sell them. Right?
