Numero Uno

I've decided to try and chronicle my adventures, eating right, living in harmony with the planet and my beliefs and fueling the revolution inside and out, all on a budget.

One of the most important things I do that helps all these things, is cook for myself (and increasingly, for my partner.) I'm out of the house a lot and I don't like having to make choices between different unhealthy, expensive or both, foods, which even in a city like Los Angeles, are what's on tap. So on the weekends especially, I cook. I also do meal planning, which I do in concert with the sales info I get off the websites of the local grocery chains. I try to buy my produce at the farmers market, and am on a quest to eat more locally. I also track what I eat on Partially I do this because being overweight is an issue for me (I used to weigh over 200 lbs) but increasingly because I am curious about the nutritional profile of what I eat and it gives you all that info like fat, cholesterol, fiber etc. Check it out - it's neat to see!

On today's menu:

Spice rubbed chicken thighs smothered in organic barley
Steamed cauliflower
organic apple

Snack: my homemade 'Luna Bars': cranberry almond oatmeal cookies
