"We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless can help us to be much more than what we are." - Adelle Davis.

To me, this means that occasionally indulging in a hot fudge brownie sundae with nuts or cheese-covered nachos with jalopeno peppers broadens my life by letting me experience it more fully. This in turn helps me grow into a complete, well-rounded woman (hopefully not literally. Uh oh, do you think Adelle meant her quote literally?!? Ah well, I'll go with my first impression that she meant it figuratively.)

I may be rationalizing so I can enjoy my indulgences without guilt, but...what about you? Have you ever looked at food as a tool to help you be more than what you are, or experience more than you have - in a positive, healthy way?

Sinful Indulgences May Keep You Healthy
Eating right includes dipping into the tasty treats (think chocolate, cream, pies) occasionally – and this can actually help fight obesity and increase your overall health.

Recent forum discussions include the Brazilian model who died from anorexia and the definition of body image.

Feel free to email me with article suggestions - what do you want to read about?

Be well & take care,
