Pescatarian Life!

Yes, Pescatarian Life is easier than veggie or vegan. The addition is fish and shellfish. Just look at some of the fabulous stuff WE can eat!!

                                                          FRUITS

Apples, bananas, blue berries, cantaloupe, all varieties of oranges, pears, strawberries, raspberries, grapes, all melons, peaches, grapefruit, persimmons, kiwi, lemons, raisins, pineapple, and many others I have forgotten!

                                                          Vegetables

Artichoke, broccoli, Kale, eggplant, mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, carrots, celery, spinach, avocados, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes ,lima beans, cucumber, zucchini, mushrooms, and many others have forgotten

                                                               Dairy

Milk-all types: soy, almond, Fairlife, Lactose free, etc., Cheeses and the variety is delicious and virtually endless, any and all types of ice creams and sorbets, cottage cheese with any and all of the additives (I like pineapple), my mainstay, yogurt and I use any and all types including soy yogurt, cream cheese, particularly on a bagel, and many others I have forgotten!

                                                              Fish and Shellfish

I could go on and on here, but I will mention my favorites: salmon prepared any and all ways including salad, patties, croquettes, and so on. Same for tuna. All fish is good. All shellfish is good too, but calamari is the highest in cholesterol remember.

So, in conclusion, remember with so much stuff out there to eat, who wants a candy bar??  Another mainstay for me is oatmeal by the way. I also eat quite a lot of Frosted Min-iWheats. If you read the label, it has most of your daily requirements when you add a half of a banana, a few blueberries, and some Fairlife milk. PS-Don’t forget to add a bit of protein powder to your smoothie!!

                                                           Eat Well-Eat Healthy!

 

Vegetarians Versus Pescatarians

Vegetarians could and should eat a wide variety of food choices for good health and balanced vitamin and mineral intake. I have been a vegetarian for some 32 years and I have recently made a big conversion. Having spent a lot of time looking into and writing about (PINK Magazine) healthy lifestyle choices I have concluded that for me personally the selection of adding fish and shellfish to my diet can be not only healthy, but healthier!

Tune in to this portion of the SKATING UPHILL blog for more info about this new eating option and you will find health tips, recipes, and much more. I look forward to sharing this healthy lifestyle option with you.

Get Out The Grill!!

Yes, even here in the hills the weather is getting warm enough to grill. I will start soon with some yummy recipes for grilled everything so stay tuned.

Also, please do feel free to submit some of your own grilling ideas. I just did some veggies on a cedar plank that I bought originally for salmon and boy Mmmm good.

Let’s get creative with some great summer ideas.

T-Shirts-New Personal Fav

Yes, I now have a new personal favorite T-Shirt:

“I dusted once and it came back-I’m not falling for that again!”

(Seen on the back of a mom in line in the grocery store with one child on her pant leg, one in the cart, and another in the little child seat.)

I dedicate this to those of us who dust and to anyone who has ever dusted!!

T-Shirts-Sent To Me!

This was sent by an older sibling-Obviously the oldest of three:

  1. I’m the oldest-I make the rules.
  2. I’m the middle-I’m the reason we had rules.
  3. I’m the youngest-the rules don’t apply to me.

I thought this was a hoot and the perfect outfits for family reunions!

Yes, Even More T-Shirts!

  1. It clearly states “PRINCESS” on my birth certificate.
  2. Older women who have lots of cats may be suffering from “Many Paws.” (Hilarious, yes!)
  3. Blessed are the hairstylists of this world. they bring out the beauty in others. (I saw this on one of the stylists where I have my hair done.)
  4. Love is how excited your dog gets when you come home. (This was accompanied by a picture of a big mutt looking dog with big feet, long ears, and droopy eyes-the best kind, of course, except for my dog and yours.)
  5. Inside every old person, there is a young person wondering what the hell happened! (This was a personal favorite of mine-don’t ask me why!)
  6. When you can’t find the sunshine, maybe it’s your turn to be the sunshine.

Keep the T-Shirts coming. What a lot of fun!
