    My preferred forms of exercise are walking and gardening. Since we live in So. California, the weather generally cooperates. I walk on my lunch break during the week, and on weekend, DH and I go for longer walks along the beach. I have a little veggie garden, which in summer has cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, and peppers. This winter, I have peas and lettuce. Next year, I'll try broccoli, too.

    I switched to whole wheat bread and pasta years ago, trying to be healthier. Am changing to brown rice now. We eat fairly low-fat, as DH has to watch his cholesterol. We enjoy most veggies, and have salads every day. My current challenge is dark leafy greens - kale, chard, etc. I find them a bit bitter, but I know they're good for us. I used to combine them with pasta or potatoes, to moderate the bitterness, but that doesn't seem like such a good idea now. icon_confused.gif I'd welcome any suggestions?

    Hello Diane. It is great having you stop in. I see Mia has already recommend kale chips. My daughter has made them and they were wonderful. I'm out of town at the moment but will see what I can come up with. I prepared sautéed collard greens awhile back and they were very good and different. I'll look for the recipe on line and get back with you tomorrow.

    I am home again and have an early dental appointment this morning. I will look at my reviews for kale and other greens and see what I can find. Also, I may just have to check out and see about an exercise class for the coming year.

    Hello all! how is your week going? I see Paula is home, our dear friend Diane is here, and let me say, those kale chips are so good!! icon_smile.gif I wasn't sure about them, but discovered they were great, I hope you get a chance to try them!

    It's great (for me) to have the holidays over, as we are all back on schedule, and it's easier to exercise, and feel comfortable because the rushing part of hectic lifestyle are out of the way.

    What have you each been doing this week?

    Hi Paula and Andi wave.gif

    Paula, exercise class sounds like a fabulous idea. Hope you find a fun one!

    Glad that things are going easier for you now, Andi. I know how difficult it is to maintain a schedule when life gets hectic icon_rolleyes.gif

    I've lifted weights yesterday and am determined to do the same tomorrow, even though I just plain hate it icon_lol.gif Actually it's a workout in the gym, of course, but I still hate it rotfl.gif

    Also I've started to work with regional vegetables of the season, like collard greens, rutabaga, beets, parsnips, kohlrabi. I'm not very used to them because I grew up on mediterranean vegetables mostly, but I think these regional gems are good for us, and it's good for the environment to avoid long transportation.

    Getting back in the normal routine really helps with exercise. I walked 5 times last week, 40-60 minutes each. We were able to keep meals light through the holidays, so no issues there (swordfish and chicken souvlaki kebabs for family Christmas! Yum!) Went to my first diabetes education class today - feeling very lucky compared to some. And motivated to change.

    Good morning to all! The prep was done yesterday for the 2 crowns and the temporaries are in place. The permanent crows will be ready in 2 weeks. Today the Christmas decorations are coming down and I will do some vacation planning.

    Here is a link to some of the recipes that I have reviewed using greens.

    (Okay, it's not working:?:}

    Turkey Italian Sausage & Greens Soup
    Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens
    Balsamic Beets and Greens
    Perfect Southern Greens (Kale, Beet, Collard Greens, Mustard)
    Chile-Vinegar Turnip Greens
    Southern Greens With Warm Pecan Dressing
    Mediterranean Kale With Feta
    Kale With Caramelized Onions and Garlic
    Spicy Garlic Kale With Sauteed Red Peppers

    I really like using balsamic vinegar with greens. It really adds a new dimension in flavor.

    Yum-O those kale recipes are amazing! I've done some of them myself, and can attest to the best of the best kale!

    Ran 4 miles today, tonite knees sore. So what? Heat and legs up for a bit. Rest tomorrow - easy walk, then off to run on Friday again, increasing my length.

    Have fun all! Look up, Spring is on it's way!

    I do go and check out the Zumba class schedule. Looks like they have classes 4 to 5 days a week an hour each. This makes it easy to plan a couple of 1 hour sessions. Also, the price isn't to bad. Class by class is $5 each or you can purchase a card with 8 classes for $32. That would make them $4 each. I plan on going next week to "observe" before committing.

    Guess what? It is raining again. Happy Friday all! icon_smile.gif

    Zumba has always looked fun, Paula! It's a great way to "dance" and move your way into shape! I'm like you, I would observe a LOT before I joined! But it looks like it is great fun. Let us know how it goes!

    Been low carbing it a bit this week, NOT strict (meaning very low carbs - but added a slice of low carb bread, lots of fresh salads..etc), but made some great mashed cauliflower with sauerkraut ----> Mashed Cauliflower With Sauerkraut Casserole by Parsley. I have some just made sauerkraut from pork last nite.

    Good morning all. Haven't made it yet to observe. Hope to next week even through next week is pretty booked. I have a ladies group on Monday, church group on Tuesday morning and Friday a hair appointment. Weather permitting maybe I can do it on Wednesday.

    The weather here is warm but foggy and rain. No wonder so many people get depressed during the winter months.

    Hi all wave.gif
    Paula, Zumba sounds like fun - had to look it up because I've never heard of it before. Great idea!

    Next week will be "leaf greens" week here, too - I just have to make kale chips yummy.gif

    This week I worked my way through rutabaga, parsnips, carrots, turnips and sweet potatoes. Very yummy, and extremely satisfying.
    It's getting colder now, but sunny, so I love going for walks with DH.

    Have a wonderful weekend all!

    Sun is on it's way icon_wink.gif
    It was warm and rainy here the last two weeks, so I'm happy about cold and sun now icon_biggrin.gif
    Enjoy the weekend despite the rain!
