Sampling at the library
Look what I picked up at the library today. I cracked open Women Food and God and so far, well, to be honest, it's a little disappointing. The author is more about spirituality, than any particular faith and drops the "f" bomb within the first three pages. But I'm going to stick it out and focus on the forest, not the trees. This passage on page 2 gave me pause (mostly in a I-don't-think-the-author-and-I-are-on-the-same-page kind of way):
"When we inhale Reese's peanut butter cups when we are not hungry, we are acting out an entire world of hope or hopelessness, of faith or doubt, of love or fear. If we are interested in finding out what we actually believe--not what we think, not what we say, but what our souls are convinced is the bottom-line truth about life and afterlife--we need to go no further than the food on our plates. God is not just in the details; God is also in the muffins, the fried sweet potatoes and the tomato vegetable soup. God--however we define him or her--is on our plates."
I did try the Biggest Loser DVD today too (not to be confused with Jillian's workout DVDs mentioned by several of you in previous posts). The 10 minute abs section made me sweat. Good stuff.
Soup book looks promising. Doesn't the fall just make you want to curl up with a big bowl of soup and a crusty piece of rustic bread?
