A heart surgeon talks about what we should eat to prevent heart disease. Now he isn’t the first to say it, but it is the way nutritionist have been talking for years. When I first started reading about nutrition ( I was 12) they were saying similar things – Stay away from processed food, eat more veggies and fruits.
here is a quote from the article:
What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.
a couple of other notes: Asthma is a disease of inflammation. and it looks like there is a connection between type 2 diabetes and inflamation. ( there are articles). .
here is an amazing story Dr Terry Whahls and her recovery from MS – based on changing her diet:
So coming across two pieces of media about food feels like a reminder. I do not expect to cure , but I know I feel better with more veggies , less grains , and almost no processed food. and I know I don’t get enough magnesium . Time to up the veggies and nuts — and get rid of the plastic covered food from the factory .
A visit from the Goon Squad Jennifer Egan kindle library . This is a National book award winner – at first – I didn’t like it, but then I did. A bunch of different characters related to just a few – vignette s that tie together. The first few characters just seemed sort of shallow and stupid , but the then the stories got more complex. In the end, I found it fascinating.

Visitors by The Mckissacks Library book 3 book in the clone codes – wrapped everything up, but not as good as the first two.
3 for March, so far.
Today I would like to be in a nice room with a comfortable chair and my books. I want to read, go faor walks , eat nice meals and sleep when I want. 3 days sounds about right.
Notice I left out the cats, My DH , my Phone, Facebook, and the internet. I don’t think I would last three days.
But it is a nice thought with an ocean view.
On Facebook, I talk about going to the Vine a lot, espcially on every other Wednesday . That is my day off ( which menas work every other Satuday ) and I try to go down for Happy hour. Sometimes , there are 10 or 12 of us , but last week , on Bonus Thursday , there were only three of us. While hnaging with my friends C and C , I finally understood why it is something I enjoy so much. It isn’t the wine and food ( though that is good !); it is the conversation. The conversation is not intense, or earth shattering , but that is what is going on . Yes, we all have phones and yes there might be a facebook messages — or picutres of food and wine sent to working spouses and friends , but mostly it is just conversation.
We all have families , work to do ( yes painting counts ), and our time is limited. so we talk about stuff. and some other stuff , and then some more.
I like these long meandering conversations and I value them.
