    There is nothing I enjoy more than a big salad, always have, even as a child. Mixed leaves, cucumber, tomato, red onion/spring onions, radishes, peppers etc. Give me a bowl of that and a fork and I’m happy!

    The times in my life when I’ve forgotten the simple pleasures of that are the times the pounds have crept up on me.

    This sounds crazy, but I love mushrooms (Portabello, shitake are my favorites) so much that I literally just assumed they were unhealthy for the longest time, since everything else I like to eat tends to be more in the "double stuffed, extra cheese, meat lover's pizza" type of category.

    I remember when I was in my young 20s and on one of many diets, I'd even order stir fry or steamed vegetables with brown rice at a Chinese place, and ask them for no mushrooms!

    Coffee ☕

    Coffee is good for you and at this point my blood is probably 90% coffee.

    Roasted veggies! Olive oil, salt and pepper, herbs and spices, super high heat, get that crunchy burnt goodness on the edges.
