Yeah We’ve Been On Vacation . . .

But we have great news!

The Blog Diet Cafepress store is up and has two articles of clothing designed with Agent Merlot’s love affair with beets in mind.

You too can show your solidarity with tasty and nutritious beets and give Jessica Simpson a message at the same time!

Maybe Peta will get on board too! >wink wink<

Hell, if they link to us, we’ll donate half the profits to them.  That’s a pretty good deal.

Remember: Maybe girls eat meat, but real women eat beets!


The Blog Diet Understands – After Holiday Hangover

If you were in the United States last Friday (Thursday night too) through Sunday you were probably made aware that July 4th is a holiday.  If all the flag waving and fireworks and parades and people mindlessly patriotically chanting “U.S.A., U.S.A., U.S.A.!” didn’t clue you in, it was Independence Day. Despite the economy being in the suck and our reputation abroad being pretty much in the same place the United States is a pretty great place to be.

It’s a real great place to be during a national holiday  since you get to have the day off from work and get to hang out with your family and friends.  You also get to eat and drink, a lot, if you are so inclined.

I am so inclined.

The Blog Diet understands.  You don’t want to be miserable during a holiday and The Blog Diet doesn’t want you to be either.  It’s OK if you ate some hot dogs and hamburgers or something decadently tasty because it was fried and then fried some more.

But “cometh the Monday after a holiday, cometh the holiday hangover.*” You feel a little bloated.  Maybe averse to bright light or talking or people in general.  It’s okay.

But get over it.  Stiff upper lip and all that.  Enter Tuesday with a vengeance.  Cause now you’re back to grass fed beef, veggies, and other healthy treats.  And exercise.  Don’t skip it today.  Get back on your routine.

OK.  That is all.

Hope your holiday was fun.


* I made this quote up. Still true though.  You can quote me on that.

A Moment To Think

Cairo Food Crisis

You know, it’s all well and good that I can blog about food and exercise – trying to figure out how to lose weight and decide what not to eat. Not everyone has this “problem.” A good portion of the world (if given the time) would blog about what their next meal might be if there was both the money available and if the food was even there.

The only reason I can write on this blog is because I’m lucky to be in the United States. Around the world there is a food crisis. You’ve probably heard about the UN meeting in Rome this week to talk about it. Here is a fine interactive piece on the Global Food Crisis from the Guardian. I found the Egypt profile of particular interest (video above).
