Meat-less, Eat More

While I do enjoy a primarily omnivorous diet, I do occasionally partake in Meatless Monday. I admit, I did not start doing so as much for health and environmental reasons as I did for the “cool” factor of it. Nonetheless, I have come to realize that it reminds me to take the opportunity to focus more on plant-based, minimally processed foods.

Not only are these types of foods particularly nutrient rich, but also “calorie poor,” meaning you can eat them in high-volumeand that is always good news for those of us with Bottomless Stomachs who enjoy large portions!! Continue reading

So Good, You Just Might Lose Your Marbles!

Brownies are good. Cheesecake is good. Ultimately, they are a marriage of near perfect indulgence when combined. Neither of them, however, particularly scream “have another, and another, and another… and you won’t regret it.” Unless of course, you are doing things Bottomless Stomach style.
