Mindful writing — the art of paying attention
Observing when eating is supposed to encourage less consumption - or so I've heard. (I should try it sometime.) Good Luck as you continue your daily observations, Rosemary.
Ha, ha! — well in this instance I had to eat more, so as to re-observe ... and then a little more, to make quite sure ...
I get a tad creative with my stir fry. I have discovered though that chick-peas do not work well. Parsnips though when sliced and cooked up taste sweet. I usually add green or yellow zuccini, lots of onion, carrots if I don't have water chestnuts, sometimes a can of peas. Pretty much whatever is in the frig.
All hints gratefully received! I have found that baked beans don't work well either, but tofu does. And when in doubt, add soy sauce. :)
