Seems like every day since Thanksgiving, I have had second thoughts about what I put in my mouth. Blame it on too many tempting foods--and all within easy reach. Too many homemade sweets. Too many large dinners. Too many snacks and lattes consumed while on the road.
So what exactly should I be eating? Every week I hear about a new diet. Some diets are more practical than others. The only diet worth trying in my life is the one I can reasonably keep. Let's call it a "middle ground diet" that encourages eating healthy meals and using moderation when indulging in my favorite carbs like a slice (or two) of french bread or a sweet treat. I am not a fan of those all-or-nothing extreme diets that guarantee failure for most of us.

at the NY Times. Last year one of the NY Times most popular articles was when Parker-Pope blogged about healthy foods that you might not think to including in your daily diet. Okay. I realize am not an adventurous eater, but her post on The 11 Best Foods You Aren’t Eating
got me thinking. Out of her eleven food items, I am only eating three regularly. Obviously I have plenty of room for improvement. Check out her list
and see how healthy you are eating.
