Welcome to the ongoing saga of my family and our attempts to eat right, exercise, lose weight and still enjoy life, while also managing the care and treatment of injuries, chronic conditions, and cancer follow-up. Convinced that a healthy lifestyle and reasonable fitness level is attainable by even the most committed of workaholics, couch potatoes, and those with health issues, join us as we explore food and wellness choices, try to put new habits in place, and hold each other accountable along the way. Healthy food can taste delicious and wellness practices need not be burdensome. At least, that is our hope, especially as we share resources with others who are working to be well.

A Very Orange Supper

Photo by Plush Duck
Tonight, basking in the last throes of unseasonably warm weather, my husband harvested the final crop of carrots from the garden, much later than I ever thought possible.  I roasted them in the oven for a little more than an hour, with some rosemary and thyme, until they were optimally tender.  Katherine the Great paired the carrots with some pumpkin pasta from a local manufacturer, Pasta Vita.  A final garnish of carrot greens and we had a tasty, picturesque dinner...loaded with beta carotene and all manner of yummy goodness.  I hope your dinner was just as delicious and nutritious.
