One morning last week I briefly stopped by my neighbor’s house to ask her a quick question.  Her table was nicely set for breakfast and she was busy cooking.

She mentioned that her grandkids “love it when I cook them this breakfast” and I was thinking to myself “who wouldn’t?”  I actually took photos which is a bit odd …

There is something about home cooking that creates a special warmth in a home.  I’ve never been much of a cook, and my family rather missed out on that.

I’ve been dieting and reading different books on “healthy ways of eating”.  Some say meat and eggs are wonderful, eat low carbs (Taubes), and others say eat a plant based diet (Ornish).

One thing they do seem to agree on is that refined sugar is a no-no.  Sadly that means no more of these:

I’ve been gong to the gym and walking.  The azaleas are blooming now and are so pretty!

My neighbor the cook is also a wonderful gardener.

    Beautiful pictures! I love home cooked meals too, but I’m not much of a cook either! I am so thankful spring is here because that means great walking weather! Best of luck to you as you try to stay away from those peanut m&m’s 🙂

    Oh my … now that’s a breakfast!! I can only imagine what the smells would have been like! Her grand kids are very blessed to have a grandmother that cooks like that! I love to home cook our meals, and it’s not odd at all to take pictures of things like that. I love food photography, myself. I have quite a few photos to share that go along with the recipes I’ve made over the years. Maybe I’ll start a food blog! 🙂 And I notice that’s an XXL bag of M&M’s, lol! Why is everything so ‘super’ sized these days … sure doesn’t help those of us who want to lose weight, one bit! And yes, I’m trying to lose a few+ pounds, too, but they’re not coming off as easily as they did before! :/ We don’t do the refined sugar either … we use a good grade of honey from the health food store, and I’ve also found both coconut sugar, or 100% Organic Maple Syrup can be very tasty to sweeten the one cup of coffee I have in the morning. My husband has had some issues with his heart, so sugar of any kind is a no-no, as well as anything fried, or foods with gluten. I’m trying to find recipes for all things gluten-free … not hard to do these days. Seems a lot of people are GF, but he’s not so happy about it. 😦

    I usually do my exercising here at home, but it would be nice, once it warms up, to get outside and walk … it was actually 19* two nights ago! Think we broke some records with that temperature! The photos of your neighbors flowers are beautiful! We only have a few buds on our trees right now and no flowers, yet … the grass is still a dull brown. It’s slow in coming this year, but it will arrive sooner or later … personally, I prefer sooner! I also wanted to check to see how your daughter was doing. I do pray she’s much better now! You have a blessed week … I’m going to be doing some much needed spring cleaning, and purging, around this house! 🙂
