Weekend Confessions

Hello all!  It is great to be back with you.  I was utterly uninspired last week and had nothing to share so I didn't.  :)

I have been feeling guilty about what I consider over eating which leads to binges and eating too many calories and then eating too few calories and then eating too many...and then feeling guilty.  Weird little cycle there isn't it?

I read about a book called Intuitive Eating that sounded very interesting, so I picked it up to read.


So far I am liking it.  I haven't gotten to the part where they tell you what intuitive eating is, but the preface and the first chapter talk about how if you define a diet as a restrictive eating plan to lose weight it will always fail you.  A diet should be a way of eating and nourishing your body - a forever type thing, not a temporary thing.  Right up my alley since I am trying to do away with the restrictive weight loss diet.  I will let you know what I think of the whole book once I am finished.

In other news, Daniel and I have been visiting Canino's Produce Company to pick up our fresh veggies for the week.


I love it!  I am so happy we started making this a regular trip.


It is fruit and vegetable heaven!  Do you make farmer's markets a regular stop for your produce?

The bonus about Canino's is that they carry cucuzza!


That's the Italian squash I showed you originally in this post.  Tomorrow my recipe for stewed cucuzza will finally appear on the blog.  YAY!  It's delicious.



Have a fantastic week!!!

  2. Ugh! I've been fighting the binging cycle the past week! I'm interested to see how you like the book. Since I have a stack of things I've been waiting to read since winter, I can't say I'd read it, but I love anyone who can share the highlights so I don't have to. :)

    I finally hit up the farmers market last week so I have to plan lots of yummy meals. Can't wait for your recipe! Although, I've never heard of that vegetable!

  4. Looks like a great book. I saw that in a bookstore last week but I don't have extra budget to get one. I hope you will share more tips from the book. :)

  5. That market looks like heaven to me! I wish I could find a place like that around here. I think the book looks interesting. I might have to find that one.

  6. The whole eating thing and keeping track of the calories is such a delicate balance. My body is so sensitive to food it's pitiful!
