Let's reverse engineer the eating-exercising math. How you can, uh, "enhance" your diet when you begin to exercise more. Because if you want to lose weight or maintain your weight, it's hard to be successful if you're feeling food deprived.
February 23, 2020. Our National Tropical Botanical Garden. Looks like they've got everything tropical, a to z. Take a one-minute stroll with me. Just to get in the groove. For a real Slower one a little later.
The cast iron pan puts a thin, crunchy finish on a warm, soft, light, crumbly bread. 30 minutes start to finish. 10 minutes or less of actual preparation. 20 minutes in the oven turns your home into the best-smelling bakery in town. Great bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Great aerobic exercise. Spectacular views. Free sun and Vitamin D. 5 hours. 6.5 miles. 4,000' up and down. 2,500+ calories gone. Cost of admission: nothing. Trail food: $3.
Serious, real-deal chili. Deep, broad and complex flavors. There's much more going on here than just heat. With or without carne, you just need great chile powder to make a great chili when National Chili Day meets a Way-Too-Chilly day.
The great, traditional Mexican breakfast. A huge amount of flavor. A great balance between the sweet corn, the tart and spicy salsa verde and the rich, mellow scrambled eggs. A wonderfully satisfying breakfast for less than $1.50.

Not at all clear yesterday. But, now, the morning after, total clarity. Glad I got out of bed. You would have, too.
Quick and simple to make. About $4 per person; $2 if you skip the fish altogether. Every bite's a little party in your mouth. Light, fun, interesting, beautiful. Almost fat-free. Want to come back as this in your next life?
