    Yeah, it's kind of like every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, the bad tattoo that looks ugly just reminds you of the whole cancer experience all over again.

    I once heard someone say, "Sure go ahead, get a tattoo. I makes it easier for the M. E. to identify your body."

    I think I would rather go for this kind of thing, if that were my circumstance (sorry for huge):
    You lurker you! That was very pretty. I just want something that I am not even going to notice so my mind doesn't even "go there" on a daily basis.

This in a magazine where nipples are proudly displayed, but the advertisers can't be that 'provocative'? What the heck?!?

    And who can forget the hilarious/pathetic episodes on 'Biggest Loser' when the nipples of some of the men who had 'man-boobs' were grayed out.

    Is it because nipples are functional(on the ladies, at least?) And that makes them just too graphic? Or because their visibility hints at arousal, and, oh,no, we just can't bear to see that?
    Well ranted, Sabine. I totally agree. It's silly. And why can we see nipples on hot guys but not Biggest Loser fat guys? They even sell these little stick on things that go on your nipples so they won't show through your clothing. In my case it does look a little weird
    on a cold day because I only have one "headlight".

        This was the most awesome dinner I've made in a while. From left to right, perfectly ripe avocado with salsa, 1/2 mondo zucchini with stuffing, and a minute steak (also called a cube steak I believe). The stuffing started out as a jar of olive/sundried tomato tapenade to which I added diced mushrooms and some almond meal (don't call the PUFA police) and a topping of pine nuts. That was seriously gooood.

        Then this was dessert

        Coconut cream with frozen raspberries in the VitaMix. Heaven.......I'm in heaven..........


        I'm also making a huge batch of zucchini chips in the dehydrator. So I finally caught up with the Zucchini pile. For now.

        • Paelobird, not really on the topic of your journal, but just wanted to say I think you're dynamite, and I love reading your posts! You have a way with words, and you always make me laugh. Thanks

          YB

          PS. Dinner looks yum!
          "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

          In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

            Why thank you, Yoga Bear. How are your adventures in omnivorousness going?

              Body is struggling to adapt a little big (digestive problems), but overall - God damn. Meat is so good!!! And it's amazing not being so limited when I go out to eat. Just a pity those little pigs are so cute...

                That meat slurry looks awesome.

                Dessert here was half a cup of warmed up cream with a teaspoon of caramel sauce.

                I imagine the recipe was somewhat similar to this:
                Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                • Thanks. I had a headache pretty much all day long on my birthday, so it was "meh." but I'm happy with it overall.

                  Today was much better. Felt more natural. Could be because it was my "actual" brithday where I was born in the other hemisphere and stuff.

                  Business is going really well. I'm psyched.

                    It may take you a little while to re-adapt to meat. There are a lot of recovering vegetarians on this forum. You could start a thread and get them all together to share advice. And yes, pigs are cute but pork rinds are cuter.

                    • These all look delicious to me, thanks for taking the time to do this. I've been meaning to get some salmon & now I really really want some, yum!

                      • Me, too.

                        I'm looking forward to having only one evening a week that I work come early-mid september, and then having the 'on site' or 'satellite' kid's yoga classes up and running in Feb. there's a bit more administration, but I think once it's up and running, it will do really well.

                        And, of course, I'm psyched to go to Australia to teach in a couple of weeks. I'm a little nervous even (mostly about where I put my e-tickets and getting to the air port on time). And, the web-site is nearly up and running for that. I have a bit more 'main content' to finish, and then I have to dig up some photos. :P that's the hardest part.

                          • Tonight at the Birdnest Bistro, ladies and gents, we have a delightful lightly seared sashimi grade ahi with a ginger/wasabi rub over a bed of greens with cherry tomatoes and sliced avocado and a few artichoke hearts. I made the salad dressing with the artichoke "juice" left in the jar with some olive oil, garlic powder and adobo seasoning for a bit of kick.

                            • Hey you got featured today! Congratulations on all your successes

                              I've submitted myself as a success story, and got the paperwork to fill out in response, but think I'll re-write later this summer as I'm finally going without supplements to manage my depression and anxiety almost all the time now.
