Other "fronts" which I don't necessarily like to discuss here have kept me busy too, having amped up my efforts to make 2010 healthier (in multiple ways), I'm holding out hope, keeping my fingers crossed and doing all I know how to get on track and back in business.
One of my closest friends has used her influence to try and get me off the "white foods", and after several discussions, a little reading, the fear of God and listening to this old body, Sis and I are in sinc and on board with the whole idea.
We began by trading evening martinis or wine with dinner for green tea (in Sis' case coffee). We've cleared our respective cupboards of all things made with white flour and/or sugar, and have officially given up the search for whole grain bread in our little town, pathetic!
Pictured here are our first efforts at making homemade, whole grain wheat flat bread which last night paired masterfully with our famous shrimp and mayopeno salad (a little something we whipped up last summer for S365).
This was dinner. Flat bread efforts follow.
We did a Google search and found many recipes for whole grain, quick and easy flat bread. I won't publish this one, if you want it, leave me a comment with your email address and I'll send it to you.
As you can see, it's not a professional job, but with a little practical experience, it should be easy enough to master the art of flat bread making. The hard part will be changing eating habits that have gone unchecked for sugar, et. al. for many years. Any suggestions, friends? I'd love to hear them.
