Live Real. Eat Real.

RTT: The All-Natural NaBloPoMo Edition

Well, here it is Tuesday again, and for once I wish it were still Monday. But I’m still putting up the purple button and linking back to Keely, Proprietress Of All Things Random.

It’s the first day of June, so a new header and color scheme is up at the Sushi Bar.  I’m especially pleased with my header, because it is the first one using a photo I took myself rather than stock photography.  It’s a macro shot of one of the blooms on the sage that is taking over the side of my house in my herb garden; I like it because it’s a flower, but food related.  Well, and it’s pretty.

You’ll also see some other minor changes. I’ve moved the blogrolls to a page of it’s own at the top.  It was simply getting out of hand and consuming my sidebar. There’s also a form on the Contact Me page, and I’ve added a more prominent RSS feed to my sidebar so visitors don’t have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page if they wish to subscribe to my blog.  There’s also a little social bookmarking toolbar at the end of the bottom of each post now, if you should wish to share any of my drivel.

I’m nothing if not a cockeyed optimist.

I read Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon this past week, as a follow-up to some research I’ve been doing.  The result?  I am absolutely appalled at the Standard American Diet.  And we are no exception – I have always made a conscious effort to stay away from the processed crap at the grocery store, but even we are eating much more poorly than we should.

So, this weekend was a saga of buying a freezer and hunting down a local source of 100% grass-fed, pastured beef – which was much easier than I ever expected.  But rather than bore you with that (I plan to do that sometime next week), let’s just suffice to say that I also made a foray into the land of granola-crunchers local health food store, and this morning I am eating 100% organic yogurt made from whole, un-homogenized milk mixed with some raw honey and flaxseed oil for breakfast.

I’m sure I’ll get used to the flavor.  Gawd, I hope I get used to the flavor…

As you may have discerned from my title, I am going to participate in NaBloPoMo this month, which basically means I am going to post every single day for the month of June.  It also basically means you’re going to see a lot of photos if you mosey on over here on the weekends.  I did this last year in July, so I have some idea of what I’m getting myself in to for a change.

And what would a Random Tuesday Thoughts post be without some random cuteness?

Random Cuteness

And that’s all I have for today.  Have a lovely Random Tuesday, y’all.

I will be here every day if you promise that I get to see that face at the end of my visit!

Good luck with the eating better. I’ve come to the fact that you kind of have to pick one battle at a time. Whether it’s beauty products, food dyes, food additives or what ever you find. It’s really hard to cut out all the artificial stuff we encounter in a day! If you really want to freak yourself out, ask Jolly if she did any research before she uses plastic products for the G Man. It blows my mind what they’ll make kids toys out of these days!

I am so glad to hear you are eating California style! That means that I will see even more recipes here that I can use. Or at least dream about. Your sound track is hysterical.

Next thing you know you’ll come over to the dark side – vegetarian. Bahahahaha!

The eyelashes on the sweetie of yours are amazing. I’m looking forward to more photos of the G-man.

Gretchen says:

Pictures of the Amazing G-Man are always welcome. And as always, the new header is fab.

If we’re going to see more of the G-Man this month then we are in for a treat.

Cute pic! I love the changes you’ve made to your site. I’m reading you from the Money Town Starbucks. You wouldn’t believe how crowded this place is today. I will have a snark filled post tomorrow for sure! : )

Lu-huv your new look! If I could get off my duff and bug my brother in law, I would have my new header up too.

Random cuteness is Always welcome! You’re right about the diet thing; we try so hard not to eat processed foods around here. You sound like you’re really doing great with the whole food thing!
Love the header; great photo.

Random cuteness. Random gorgeousness.

My boy has now declared that we must buy milk must come from a specific local dairy that has happy cows (if we are to have milk at all since he might like to become vegan).

I’m already reading the label of everything we eat. Everything we clean with. Everything we bathe with. All this label reading is expensive… but I think it’s all for the best.

I LOVE the new header! I’m going to have to plant some sage now. :)

OK, I’m a dork – I had this comment opened ALL DAY and never finished my thought! Let’s see if I can remember what I was going to say…

I thought about doing the NaBloPoMo this month, but I decided I better wait until after our Iowa trip since we’ll be heading there at the end of this month – but I’ll be happy to read you daily posts – and look forward to seeing pictures of G-Man as often as you want to post them! ;)

I’m looking forward to reading more about your freezer/beef/orgasmic…I mean organic…excursion! :)

I love the new header and the random cuteness! Smooch! That’s what I want to do…give that kid a smooch, if it would make him smile even more!
