Are those the ones with the big rips in them? We are either helping PF on her trip back to earth or the other direction.

Reading up on the new clinical recommendations for Cardiac Care and Diabetes. They are not too far away from recommending the Mediterranean Diet to lower a person's risk of Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes and for patient's to switch to the Med. Diet rather than low-fat and diabetic diets.

This is good news, switching to natural foods instead of changing to artificial sweeteners, etc.

I hope they adopt it, then maybe I can get my doctor to write me a prescription for a trip to Greece!

Now that would be cool! I'm more excited by putting away the low-fat aspect of my diet...it has severely restricted the foods that I can eat with the other diagnoses I have. So excited I just had an Almond Butter sandwich with some plum jam.

I think my doctor and dietician/nutritionist were onto something earlier than the study. they have always told me to eat what I wanted but try to keep the carbs low. And that is what I have done. I eat a lot of fish and seafood, (Med. Diet) and I use veggie oil or EVOO. I only use canned veggies for an ice cold veggie salad. But I do eat a lot of them. I prefer fresh veggies for my meal. Nowonder my doctor took my off my diabetes meds.

Thinking of you Laurie

This coming July, it will be 13 years since I lost my dad
