I’ve got good eyes and being able to protect my eyesight is important to me. Bree’s grandmother went entirely blind from macular degeneration, and I can admit that the thought of that scares me. I have glaucoma in my family, too, and that’s just the condition I know about. Bree’s eye doctor recommended that she take a vision supplement because of the fact that macular degeneration is in her family. Since I’m not sure whether or not it’s in mine, too, I’ve decided to protect my eyesight by doing the same thing. I consider this to be my secret weapon. Beyond some of the other things I do to make sure my eyes stay healthy, that’s what brings it all over the top.

I was stuck in an extraordinarily long line at Bree’s favorite cafe yesterday when I started wondering about pumpkin health benefits.

I’m trying a vegetarian diet. I’ve been doing it for a bit and plan to stick to it pretty strictly for the first month. My goal isn’t to become a vegetarian. Instead, it’s to immerse myself into it so I’m forced to find out what foods I can eat to reach my nutrition goals without eating an animal to get there. To be clear, I’m trying a vegetarian diet, not a vegan one. I’ll still be eating dairy in my normal amounts, plus eggs and honey. Once I’m done this experiment, I also know I’ll definitely go back to eating fish regularly. I haven’t decided whether or not I’ll eat fish in the midst of this experiment or not. I haven’t so far, and at the moment, I’m leaning toward “no”.
I’ve been sticking to the same kind of nutrient-dense diet for quite some time, and it’s really working for me. Sure, I get the occasional junk food in there, and the holidays are always hard on me, but overall, I’m eating great. The funny thing is that a lot of people judge my meals as being boring. They assume I’m sacrificing a lot in what I’m eating so that I can reach my physical goals. Not true!
