We had a rule about radishes, it went like this:
radishes are poison in the morning,
food at lunchtime,
medicine in the evening.

at least 3 colors on the plate-- green/red for vegetables, brown for meat and yellow for carbs.

I think a healthy diet is about more, not less.
All foods fit...we just need to find a way to enjoy oranges and spinach as much as pizza and chocolate.

Hunger and satiety come in the same basket -- if you lose contact with one, you lose contact with the other.

milk and cereal for dinner - it's not the great solution it initially seems.

black pepper is the bachelor's best friend.

Our four legged friends appreciate the food (that we hate) from our plate that we share (under the table) with them.

avocado & honey slightly salted & peppered is divine, all by itself

In general, but not excluding exceptions of the rule once and for all, colourfulness shall meet proteinrichdom in tasteful understanding.

Oh, and a day without a handful of nuts and a cuppa hot lemon or lime (with honey, of course) is a lost day!

drink a full glass of water before every meal, don't eat more than what can be held in two cupped hands, and don't eat after 6pm.
