Turnip greens are extremely healthy and grow in the spring and fall of the year when a lot of other things do not grow. They take a lot of preparation. First they are looked, washed and cooked in water and then put in a pan with fatback and fried until they are almost dry. This was one of the main foods in the mountains. Collard greens are more popular in Eastern North Carolina. Mr. VA requested that I buy turnip greens instead. He doesn't like the stalks in the collard greens. I will not eat mustard greens. Just too much flavor for me! I don't eat corn field peas and okra either. You don't have to be from the North not to like some things.

I like turnips raw like apples, but I don't like them cooked in a pot.

Good morning everybody!
Day two of my scientific experiment.

Coffee and milk
2 eggo waffles
banana
Actually it doesn't contain so much fat or sugar and it's (only) about 5 ounces - is that much for you? It's only such a small portion I'm nearly ready before I begin to eat it. Mostly I eat low fat pudding but at the moment I just can't resist.

And, NCN, I don't go to work by bike anymore. It's just too hot. I can only go by bike if I have somebody who can pick up DS for the day care in the afternoon.

P.S. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your hubby too, MM.
Thank you for the good wishes...

About the coffee, I recently heard a lot of good things about it, so I still drink it but not as much.

Now that cheese on there looks like a heart attack on bread, but what a way to go! That could solve a lot of economic problems. LOL
rofl heart attack on bread.

Sometimes I don't know whether I should write down the things I eat b/c you are all so healthy eaters that I get a bad conscience from time to time. The pizza actually looks like I should have a big portion of it for lunch

Sorry, didn't mean to be so stuffy. I would love to eat those things and when I was younger like you we could eat those things. Mr. VA had a stroke last year and we have to really watch the fat. There are some no fat cheeses, but most cheeses are forbidden. Now your pudding sounds great.

Oh NCN, you weren't stuffy! I just feel so bad myself sometimes b/c you're all so healthy
I'm sorry about the stroke Mr VA had! My grandpa had three I guess already and he also has to watch what he eats. Also my dad. It's a shame with all the nice, fat, greasy and sweet food jumping at you to be consistent all the time.

I think everything in moderation, at least for me. If I become too diciplined, then I really go overboard with the binging. What I'm trying to do, but haven't accomplished it yet, is having one day a week to endulge. I think this will work well for me.
