Good to hear John. Starting to get pretty nice here as it's almost Spring! Been sending out that elimination diet for the last couple days! Probably 30 ish?? WHY DO I DO THAT! LOL. Keeps me busy but boy, does it ever take time! That's ok. I'm kind of a stay at home wife for a bit at least. Hopefully, Forever! :)

You been busy then Susan,Been a while since i sent out Diet/lifestyle plans here, though i still put my view across on facebook to people , I usually get ignored lol,Prescription charges are going up as one said then i looked on here facebook and seen what she is eating on a regular basis,no wonder she ill,mcdonalds and kfc her favourit, shes very over weight and in pain,hmmmmm,wonder what may had caused that? :)I put my view acrosss and dont want to listen, then more illness going her way, her choice though, Well you like to help people Susan and thats great, I do to, but many want other routes, normally prescription drugs etc,, It is a choice though,a choice for everyone :)

I hear ya John. All I can do is give them the diet. Then it's up to them. Yesterday someone said she would starve if she ate like me. LOL. Well, this body is certainly not in starvation mode! Got some happy fat going on. Yes, that's a term for what happens when a couple is happy. OMGoodness... That's ok. We are very happy and very content. On welfare day it's amazing how much crap people with low incomes buy. I guess most aren't too happy. Going for comfort food I think. We both talk about going out for supper but just doesn't happen. I'm a super cook and we love our new home. Life over here is very grand! I think one of the issues is the habit of complaining. I'm sure you also see it all over facebook. If I wanted to I could find things to complain about for sure! I just don't though. Doesn't do any good anyway. However, I can get a good vent on if someone pisses me off, but then I just release it and let God figure it out. My life is finally close to perfect and negative energy and stress are a waste of my precious time. We do have to make a choice on how to life this life. You are right!

Thank you Susan ,Yes you have great spirit like many here have too,Yes i get pissed off sometimes, just got a car that sounds like a tractor when warmed up, paddling pool on the floor pans, some damp rising and possible load of other stuff to surprise me,its done, i got get on with it and thats it,My silly fault for being hasty,I eat for england Susan but not crap, good wholesome foods that would put most people off lol,Most think its about taste with foods rather than nutrition, I make tasty foods as my taste buds are adapted to that what i cook, I used to cook in hotels,My diet is limited but my health is important as i am getting older, near 50 now very soon,I dont want be a cripple though i do get my aches from tennis elbow, i must stop playing tennis:),shoulder etc,life goes on or just sit there in self pity, dosnt work been there,You are right too Susan :)

John, cook in hotels? Well, when you and that lovely lady of yours come to visit we will leave ALL the cooking up to you! LOL

Today I was sharing the diet on a site for autoimmune people. Most are grateful. Then this young smart ass says "I eat crap all the time and I feel good" I responded "Yeah, for now. Young, inexperienced youth think they know it all!" LOL My buttons got pushed so I'm a bad girl!

Today is absolutely gorgeous. A bit too cold to ride our bikes but we're going to head out to Myra Canyon to walk. You can google it. A railway track that was turned into a walking/biking trail when we had a massive fire here. Great to be able to do all these things! Free too!

well yes i cooked in one, Nothing fancy but it was food already prepared thati did up during the day for the evening and food to order like steaks, fish etc , I worked in the kitchen when the chef was off on days off or holidays , Could get hectic running around etc in the kitchen, I cant remember half the things i cooked now , such a long time ago,
True Susan, It catches up with everyone, I know how i was with eating lots of treats, the inflammation in my joints wasnt good,dont get me wrong, i do let my hair down from time to time but not daily and not overdo it ,One guy who lives in the staff house with me , said you eat the same things,but yes most of time i do, but i eat lots of veggies and flick between fish and chicken,They probably believe they eat healthy this guy, okay,he said someone that hes eating lots of pasta in sauce because its healthy, okay, he thinks that lol,When people do get sick,last thing they look at is what they eat as docs think you need something to deal with the symptoms, Well good to let them know about their diets in a constructive way, if thats possible?,i have had people coming at me for what i have said though some agreed with me :)

Sounds wonderful Susan, Canada looks beautiful :) Yes i see my lady in less than 2 months now, well 7 weeks and counting lol, cant wait ,Oh and am still trying to win that lotto and things can happen fast like my Lambo and my lady wants a Mustang lol :) Thank you

John, those of us that eat well will get criticism but that's ok. It's none of our business what other people think. THAT took me a very long time to understand. But I finally got it through my thick skull. LOL Last night we had cauliflower crust pizza with a bit of left over chicken on top, and a bit of goat cheese on it (I rarely eat cheese). Along with that we had an amazing salad with cauliflower/broccoli/pecans and sesame oil with balsamic vinegar plus spices. OMGoodness! Amazing! My hubby said "I think with your cooking I actually could become a vegetarian!" This guy is from Alberta and it's a meat and potatoes place. Since being with me he feels better, BP is down most of the time and is almost off his BP medication, and he's lost weight. We do not eat vegetarian and probably wouldn't go that route. But our meals are not high in meat anymore. Now that we are heading into Spring and Summer the vegetables will be plentiful and fresh at the Markets. BTW we have honey in our tea and yesterday at a small Market we bought honey infused with Anise!!! Holy Cow, licorice taste in our tea. YUM!

That’s great news!! I haven’t been in the site for awhile. My update on my psoriasis. It’s 99% clear! Nothing in my scalp and body. I have been taking shots and it’s completely gone, except a minor one that is not visible. There is hope for everyone!
