This past weekend my brother-n-law, Paul, and his wife Mindy, were visiting and I made a barbecue for them along with some of my husband’s cousins. Before entertaining I always ask the following of my guests: “Any food allergies, intolerance, or strong dislikes that I should know about?” (Yes, I do consider myself a good host!) Anyway, the answer was NO from everyone. It was when I decided on the menu, skirt steak and salmon, that Paul and Mindy informed me that they don’t like salmon, BUT would be fine with just the steak. SO, night of BBQ, I grilled the meat and the fish and put it out with some great sides for everyone else to enjoy. BUT low and behold, Paul surprised me (and i think honestly himself) and tried the salmon. He LOVED it.
Moral of the story (of course there had to be one!): Even though you are no longer a child, it might be worth trying a food AGAIN. Our taste buds can change at any stage of our lives; OR it can simply be a new way of preparation that changes everything for us! Paul went home with my recipe… NOW if only Mindy would be willing to try 🙂

WTF Is The Difference Between Keto and Paleo? – Women’s Health
The bigger question should be “Who cares?” Personally I wish these two diets would disappear into obscurity! Why do so many people still think the ONLY way to lose weight is to remove food groups, when the majority of nutrition experts will agree that deprivation is never successful in the long run? Sure, you will lose weight on these diets, but at what cost and for how long? Hey, call me crazy, but I enjoy food (and my mental health) way too much to spend my time eliminating foods I love!
10 Things To Know Before Trying The Mediterranean Diet – My Fitness Pal Blog
In my opinion, the main thing to know about the Mediterranean Diet is that it really is NOT a diet. It simply incorporates all types of healthy food without discriminating against any one food group. Have to admit whenever someone wants to talk about this diet I say, “You mean you want talk about simply eating healthy?” OK, so it doesn’t exactly put major importance on portion sizes, which for some individuals may be a problem if weight loss is their goal. BUT, on the other hand it’s not like it is encouraging a free for all. Read on for more…….
