I think I forgot to mention that I got a bread machine the weekend before last. It was on sale at Williams Sonoma and Bobby and I couldn’t resist. Since then I made a couple kinds of bread from Williams Sonoma mixes – Honey Wheat and Italian Herb. I have been making a lot of these:
The one pictured is with homemade Italian Herb bread, sunflower seed butter (Maranatha), and bananas. It’s good with honey drizzled on it too, but sometimes I am just too lazy. I actually had 2 of these for dinner tonight. I had planned on making stuffed acorn squash but instead decided to be a sandwich bum.
I also saw one of the cutest graffiti ever:
Cat! Too bad it’s not fatter. That would have been the cutest.
Is there graffiti in the town where you live?
Here in NYC it is all over.

A while ago I challenged myself to stop eating salads so often. So I did. I haven’t eaten a salad for a meal since lunch on August 6th. (It was a Tuna Nicoise salad from Macaron, by the way.) Salads are great, but they don’t do so well with my stomach so even though I am the salad girl, I knew I had to take a break.
So what do people eat when they aren’t eating salads?
My first guess was sandwiches. Here are some of the fun combos I have made (or bought). My favorite is at the end.
This sandwich has Steamed Beets (my dad’s), Tofurky, mayo (lots), mustard (lots), and lettuce. The bread is some whole-grain oat nut thing I got at Whole Foods.
This one is a “Peking Style Zen Duck Wrap” (vegetarian) from Zen Palate. It was decent. It was much better dipped in my brother’s dish’s peanut sauce. It had fake duck, lettuce, carrots, and a spinach tortilla.

Intuitive Eating and Marriage. That sounds like a rather odd combination? Surprisingly, it’s not. I just got back from my 2-week long honeymoon (it was absolutely amazing) and I am pretty sure I have discovered what might just be the ticket (or at least my ticket) to being an intuitive eater for good.
How I Got Married and Became an Intuitive Eater
I married an intuitive eater.
When we first started going out, I mostly ate just like Bobby (my husband) – but it can be hard to keep up with a 19-year-old boy, not to mention the fact that it’s not that good for your waistline.
For the next few years I tried to eat intuitively, and eventually something stuck. Creating good new habits takes work. But sometimes you can get a kick in the pants, or find motivation that will get your butt in gear. Here are the three steps that helped me (finally!) truly embrace eating intuitively:
