    I'm curious- does anyone have any luck making paleo pasta dishes look pretty. I don't really have a heart for pasta per say but I was cooking with a buddy last night- I did a zuchinni spaghetti and he did a sweet potato alfredo... but we just couldn't get them to look attractive. They looked good- but instagram with a cellphone good not like "WOW I want to dive into this!" good... anyone else have luck plating pasta?

    Time to restart the scale. If you go back and read my journal in April you'll know that I did a "no weigh" April. Well as it turns out the stars line up and april was a loss month for me after a few months plateau. I still strongly believe that this is a post hibernation loss before the ball really got rolling again. So here it is- scale has been reset. This morning 246.4- I think that extra 1.4 is just Easter poundage. Guess it's time to see if my theory pans out. Hope everyone had a blessed easter weekend!

    I've had the same problem with pasta, although I don't photograph it. But it just doesn't look good. The ingredients don't really stand out on squash the way they do on wheat pasta. My dishes look kind of like yellow oatmeal with some unidentifiable things in it. Not so pretty, although they taste good.

    I just get get my heart into pasta dishes... even if they are fully paleo. They taste ok but they don't excite me! Either way I bought a veggie spiral slicer (http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B000...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) because at least I could make curly fries! (I LOVE curly fries!)

    So prayers needed- I have my interview with Stratford Chef today just after noon. God willing it'll be my next step in life. Now I wait...
