  • I think its harder to eat locally and in season based on some locations..i.e. growing seasons and local productions.. i am surprised KS has few farmers markets with food. Its mostly crafts..but the food they do have is SO FRICKIN EXPENSIVE

    • We can do well here seasonally and locally, it is reasonably priced and summer stuff is beautiful. I just don't love winter veggies, they are sparse and high in carbs generally. But this is supposed to be a bumper crop of strawberries in Tennessee this year. And I can't pass those up. I do think this will get easier and easier as the movement grows, just they way organic did.

      • I agree -- it will get easier as awareness and demand rise. I hope in a few years, it will be the "normal" instead of the exception.

        • I am interested in eventually getting to where I eat seasonally, but as I am still healing and losing weight, I figure I don't need the challenge right now. One thing at a time. Speaking of which, I am trying your Precision Nutrition idea of adding in one new habit until you have it down pat, then another. Successfully added a multi-vitamin to my daily line-up, which was mostly just a matter of buying a bottle and putting it with my others. Now I am trying to add one brazil nut per day. Don't want to take it with my vitamins because it is food, and I don't want to set off the eating cycle early in the morning, so I am trying to find a routine that will help me remember. I may resort to just leaving them on the table. Any tips for making a new habit easy to remember?

          • I am with you on that. Basically working through healing and weight loss, it is my suspicion that that will coincide with the upsurge of available local stuff!

            I wish I could help with the habit. The thing that has worked for me is to attach it to something I already do. Maybe do it with lunch? Lunch is my most consistent meal.

            Funny, I like to take my supplements and meds right after food (ie. not on an emplty stomach) as it keeps them from giving me an upset belly, but I also sor tof thought it would make them absorb better.

            Since I take my supplements/meds morning and night, I move them from one place to another on my counter so I know if I took them already or not. Plus that way I don't get used to seeing them and them really not see them.

            My current habit is to get back on the treadmill. I got off of it because the sound was messed up on the tv. Now my daughter fixed it, I need to restart the habit. For that I set an alarm on my cell phone (I usually do it 7am before I have my smoothie). Yesterday, I didn't have time in the morning so I did it when I got home from work. I will have to do the same today.

            • Moving the pills is a great idea. A couple of times I have forgotten my blood thinner. EEEK! The only reason I knew is because they were at the bottom of my make up bag instead of on top. I need a better system.

              • My RX's are in the drawer I keep my glasses case in. Open the draw to put glasses away after putting in contacts and there they are.

                • I guess the blood clots scared me enough to remember the blood thinner. BUT I only had to take them for a short while, I am certain if it were long term I would have problems. I go through stages with my IBD medicine. I have had it for so long and have been in remission for so long, I put myself in denial that I even have it, then forget the pills. Actually though they are to prevent another colon cancer more than keep symptoms in check, so I need to stay on them. Doing the habit with the supplements has helped a lot.

                  • So last night for dinner I made crab cakes. Mostly Primal, I think...

                    2 pounds of crab meat, chopped up
                    3 T of homemade mayo
                    diced red pepper
                    1tsp old bay
                    1tsp dry mustard
                    hot sauce to taste
                    3 T golden flax meal (I think this is primal?)

                    recipe also called for chopped parsley and green onions, but I didn't have either.

                    then (and this is definitely not primal) I very lightly pressed the formed patties into panko and sauteed them in olive oil.

                    They were fantastic, served them over a BAS. You could probably skip the panko, but I had it and I was jonesin for something crunchy.

                        • Athome, I am very impressed that you PUT AWAY your glasses! I am not so meticulous. Let's see, what do I ALWAYS do, that could serve as a visual reminder for me? Hmmm, there's a limit to how much stuff I could pile on the toilet tank lid!

                            LOL!! Well, I am blind without my glasses or contacts. Its sad when at night I they fall off the nightstand and I have to have my daughter come help me find them because all I can do is feel around for them. So, when the contacts go in the glasses go in a bright red case in the drawer! hahahah

                            • I have trouble if I have to do something at the same time every day. Not even the toilet lid would help me out there!

                              I spend way too much time in my kitchen. So I can put things all over there to remember. The trick is that they stay so long that I have to move them around or I just get used to seeing them and then ignore them.

                              Just decorated a cake for a fund raiser. It came out pretty well, but WAY TOO much taste testing went on. How do I know, my tummy doesn't feel so good|~(

                              • I spend a lot of time in my kitchen as well. I love it...but am still trying to balance my love for cooking with how much (or little) I need to eat.

                                Tomorrow for mother's day I need to make my mom a nice treat for the day. I've got to figure out how to enjoy a little bit without going too far...

                                Chris, you are so kind. At this point, I mostly donate money for these things. I can't do too much baking...I do too much tasting...
