August 4, 2012.

We watched the movies Food,Inc and Forks Over Knives recently and as a result we've decided to try eating healthier. So now I'm a vegan. Christy likes to point out that I'm not actually a vegan but I am trying to adapt to a vegetarian lifestyle.

With this in mind I had Christy stop in at the local Chinese restaurant to pick up a take out menu. Imagine my surprise that when she brought the menu home it was in Spanish. ¿Que? Si, esta en Espanol. I dunno, I guess the local Mexican population eats enough Chinese food to make these menus warranted.

Back at our marina Christy has always had a little something growing. Last year it was strawberries hanging from the boom.
This year its a watermelon plant our friend Laura planted in a huge pot on the dock. Damn if it didn't spit out a pair of watermelons. These dock melons yielded some picture perfect really tasty fruit.

Although they were boat sized....

No way. You mean there will be some Lobster left in the water when we get there? I don't want to eat them, just want to see some.

Good luck with that. Our oldest was a vegan for years and now a couple of our grandsons have pretty bad food allergy issues so it's been a challenge to find food to feed them all. You better stay away from my food blog then lol. Not too much healthy on there :)

Turn it over. There is English on the other side.

I haven’t seen these movies yet, but have heard a lot about them. I’ve been trying to focus more on healthy eating lately too. One of my cooking classes a couple of weeks ago focused completely on grains and I was surprised to find out how much protein, antioxidants, and vitamins many of the grains had, especially Quinoa, not to mention a ton of good health benefits. And they all tasted pretty darn good, too. :)

I figure if I watch what I eat when were home I'll be way ahead of the game. We don't eat out that often.

Yeah, I know theres English on the other side I was just surprised to see the Spanish.

The movies were both eye opening and a little maddening.
