Low carb menu & Grandma was right

- Four eggs
- A little chicken salad
- Two cinnamon flax muffins with butter

I'm sick with a cold.  No fun. :(  Now that I think about it, though, that may give me license to veg out with a warm blanket and watch some nonsense tv... right??

I started Good Calories, Bad Calories last night and it promises to be good.  I'm still on the Prologue (slow reader), but it talks about how people have always known that starches were bad.  I remember my grandmother (who has always carried a little extra around her mid-section) saying, "bread is my downfall."

At the time, my low-fat mentality thought, "Bread does not make you fat!"  Turns out, grandma was right.  Moms are always right, aren't they?


  1. Aww, feel better soon and yes, veg out with a warm blanket and treat yourself gently to get over this.

    That's amazing that your grandmother knew it was the bread that was "her downfall". Grandmother's have SO much wisdom. I wish mine had lived longer to share!

  2. Yeah, this book is a real eye-opener, especially to people who are scientific-minded. It really goes over the rationale of the hows and whys of the low fat movement. Good intentions? Probably. Does it work? Well, you already know how I feel about that... ;)

    I am fortunate enough to have both of my grandmas alive... and they are complete gems!
