i say balance is rational. i get sugary pop, & then i'll get seltzer. there's veggies/fruits in my fridge. there's also very marbled steak. i use butter. also use healthy oils, as in olive oil. cholesterol, sodium, fat, sugar, & carbs reside here. you'll find balance in my kitchen. i won't allow caffeine & that's the sum of things.
btw- my b.p. is now usually 90/60-70. they were using an adult cuff to take my b.p. when they're supposed to use a kiddo 1- i have teensy arms.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
