Getting Started

I love food. But like a lot of people, if I keep eating it the way I want to eat it I gain lots and lots of weight, don't look good, don't feel good, etc. For the past year-and-a-half, however, I have been dutifully and conscientiously monitoring what and how much I eat, to the extent that I have completely changed my dietary lifestyle. I have also lost over 35 pounds and kept it off successfully for about a year. So this means healthy eating, no more junk food (well, that's not an absolute), working out on a regular basis (you know, the 3-day cardio, 2-day strength training, etc., routine), I guess for the rest of my life. I am trying to incorporate really yummy, delicious food into this healthy eating lifestyle. That's not just for me, it's also for my family. My family includes my husband of 32 years, three grown and beautiful daughters, one son-in-law, and one gorgeous, adorable granddaughter who will be 2-1/2 years old in August of this year. Stop by and see how it goes! I think my first venture is going to involve radishes. I hear they're pretty good for you.

I can't wait to read all about the radish venture(s)!

Can you roast them? I bet they would be really good roasted.

Haha, one time I brought in some raw radishes to eat as a snack and nearly got sick. They are SO STRONG! But that was because they were plain. Put some ranch dressing on them or roast them or something and they're great - this was why I thought I could eat them alone... duh. ;)

i've never had roasted rashises, but that does sound really good...!

raw onions always make my chest burn, is that what the radishes did?
