So, I figure I could stand to lose a few (the definition of "few" being rather elastic), and I'm starting to edge myself away from the excesses of my recent cooking which tends to be less than healthy (for instance, oktoberfest? its like a carb and fat festival!).
What is stranger is that I've almost started to develop a strange (and novel, for me) affinity for certain healthy foods...last night my dinner was a salad of spinach, thinly sliced cucumber, paper-thin sliced celery, and faint drizzle of olive oil and pepper. Also a fresh thai birdseye chili minced up, which put some serious heat in it. I really liked it! Maybe I had one too many racks of pork ribs?
My homemade pizzas have stopped including meat as a topping and now generally are topped with pineapple, mushrooms, olives, jalapenos, etc. Oh, and I've at least temporarily retired my 20oz beer mug...last night a 9oz pull was equally satisfying, if savored a bit slower.
Any of you guys have any specialties that you would consider particularly exemplary in health/nutrition?
