    Good News

I find I favor steamed vegetables on the crisp side--I like the feel and sound of crunching. I do eat more nuts, especially almonds and walnuts, plus cheese. For me, I think I've found a good diest, one that allows me to maintain a good body weight, is healthy and tasty.

    Hey, Redneck, that's real good going that you've lost half your goal weight in a month.

    I'm real partial to "wild caught" Coho salmon. Do you have any favorites in the seafood area?

    Something's Fishy

    Juke: Yeah, I go for fresh caught salmon, too. Was at Sam's Club last Friday and saw fresh salmon, and other fresh sea food. I like talipia and grouper as well. For me, fresh fish does not require much seasoning, perhaps a squeeze of lemon and ground pepper. As I said earlier, I'm not missing red meat very much. However, I could be persuaded to chomp into a thick beef steak, medium rare.

    I only eat fish as a source of meat, the rest of the time I eat vegetarian meals and soy products.
    One book that was really helpful when I decided to do this was "The Complete Idiots Guide to Becoming Vegetarian". It had charts, receipes, meal plans, and other stuff. Another book that's good is called "Living Among Meat Eaters". Both of these books can be bought on Amazon.com

    Along the same motivational lines, from the ecological, ethical and spiritual considerations, "The Food Revolution" by John Robbins.

    It's also available through Amazon dot com:
