Low-Key Food

Tonight we had garbanzo beans with mint and feta. We had Piedmont peppers -- I didn't have any tomatoes, so I put some spinach in there, which wasn't as pretty but tasted pretty good. And I made focaccia with whole wheat flour and "tarragna," which is a blend of buckwheat and grits intended for polenta and milled by my friend Ken.

Expect more meals like this for a little while. I'm not feeling much like eating meat lately, and the warm weather makes me want lighter meals.

Ha. I sound pretty fancy there, eating lighter food because of "warmer weather." In truth, I have gained about twelve pounds in 7.5 weeks since I quit smoking, despite intense and regular cardiovascular exercise and strength training. So it's less pork butt and no more white pizza crust for me until my ex-smoker metabolism stabilizes.

Bummer! I gained some weight when I quit smoking, but I was also pregnant.

You can borrow my "Sugar Busters" book if you want to. That eating plan is the best way to normalize weight, I think.
