A few quick notes before I go all forgetty: I figured out I CAN darken link text (herpaderp), so I ran through the recipe indexes on the site (<– see the green color here? A little too light for many) and made everything darker.
Now you won’t have to go blind in your eyeballs anymore with the bright green. It was like radioactive Hulk words.
Also, I have cleaned the menu up top a little bit. Instead of all of the busy drop-down menu foolishness, see the TAGS section in the sidebar (at right). Need a recipe with Zucchini? Just click the “Zucchini” tab. Need a fun way to use jicama? Choose that tab. Hovering over tabs also gives you a pretty solid idea of what this site has to offer.
I have also moved the CATEGORIES to the side as well! Check there for all of your favorites, from “Less than 5 carbs” to “Humor” to “Tips” to “Sugar-Free” to “Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian”! They’re all there now.
At almost 1,000 posts and 400 recipes, we have a lot more to come so I want to keep the site as tidy and as organized as possible.
I really love this new site design, our Mid-Year Resolution, and my renewed sense of purpose: To work with as many wonderful friends and families as I can to help you to love your food, too.
While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so slim you have to run around the shower just to get wet.

Tuesday, September 4
I ate this:
Breakfast: I slept in and got right to work, so…
Lunch: 1/2 of a Radical veggie omelet and sausage patty + Dr. Zevia Cola
Snack: Diet Coke (hey, I’m being honest here)
Dinner: Spectacular meatloaf recipe I’ll share with you very soon… + green beans + Dr. Zevia
Notes: I am going to work more fats and proteins into breakfast, starting today. I forgot how much I like omelets loaded with veggies and some cheese. I also forgot how filling they are. I will save the other half for tomorrow.
That I really need that protein-y/high fat breakfast back to kick the weight loss into gear (that French Toast at right? Mmmm).
Sure, I had an amazing first week of weight loss, but I want to keep these metabolic fires burning, baby! As a recipe developer, I tend to eat my latest work, meal after meal, until they are gone. Unfortunately, at the same time, then I miss out on some of my favorite dishes–like three-egg omelets.
I am looking forward to having more fun with eggy/beefy/porky breakfast offerings and will be sure to share those explorations with you, too. It’s fun to have ideas for fun, different omelets, wonderful waffles, marvellous muffins, and perfect pancakes, and all without the guilt.
And when I have a main course or a dessert I feel I have to put first, I’m going to, instead, freeze it for later when I really need the quick meal to keep me going.
What are you enjoying for breakfast?
