Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter Y

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? The Daily Special: You Are What You Eat! I’ve been hearing this phrase my entire life, and it wasn’t until recently I actually began paying attention to it again. Oh sure, I knew moderation was key, exercise important, and water essential. I tried to maintain a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy, meats, and even fats because it made a difference in how well I felt. Plus it reflected in my energy level as well. So, as I was collecting all this produce, it seemed like a no-brainer to share the snapshot with everyone. Bon Appétit.




Green Beans

Assorted Peppers

Corn on the Cob






Wash the vegetables. Eat them raw, cooked, puréed, chopped, minced, buttered, grilled, roasted, par-boiled, or baked.

“Make food simple

and let things taste

of what they are.”

~ Curnonsky (Maurice Edmond Sailland)

  1. Sneaky . . cheeky!

    And you’re absolutely right. I love a fried egg sammy as much as the next dude, but there’s only so much of the fried stuff . . and the junk food . . and the other indulgences that I can take. Being sensible and doing your thing in moderation IS the key, indeed. And the good stuff IS tasty stuff, so there’s that.

    Well done!

  2. Yay! You’re a team-player. Don’t get me wrong, I still have my weaknesses. By cooking for my husband, I choose healthier options than I did when I was living alone. As I’ve aged, though, I crave fewer sweets than I do carbs. What’s up with that?! 😜
