Need Help With Book about Leoma, Tennessee



 Although I was the sort of student at Elementary School (1954-1962) who clapped when the teacher gave a written assignment, I did not enter the profession of writing until after I retired as a school teacher in 1999. Before that time my need to create and record information was met daily through my numerous tasks in the classroom. I was also hired on several occasions to write units of study, newsletters, and lesson plans. All this was done along with written preparations and term papers assigned for the three college degrees I completed. This also served to meet my needs while leaving little time for other kinds of writing.
  It was on a fluke that I responded to a small ad for a writer in a local newspaper in 2007. I was hired on the spot after the editor looked at samples of my writing. I went on to work for the Knoxville Journal Newspaper until it closed in 2014.
  Along the way, I also wrote ten books. Most are local history. Two are sizzling novels. After the newspaper closed, area writers began hiring me to help edit their manuscripts—a job I still do on occasions.
  My grandmother used to say, “It is not bragging if you are stating facts.” My books have sold all around the world in many countries and on six continents. One of my books, “Watermelon for Everyone,” was judged as the “Best Cookbook in the World About Watermelon” in 2014 from Gourmand Magazine in Madrid, Spain. According to my blog, most of my fans live in France, England and Spain.
  It was during a visit with my second cousin (by marriage) LaShawn Baxter that the thought popped into my mind that we should record the history of Leoma. She readily agreed and we took off on this journey and have not looked back.
 The writer’s approach to how a book or story is written is known as “The Voice.” For a writer, figuring out which voice to use in order to tell your story is a huge part of the book and can make it or break it.
   The Voice can be third person, meaning an omnipotent, Magic Man or Woman in the Sky, who knows not only all the actions, but also the thoughts and motives of each person in the story. This method is frequently used by those writing mysteries or dramas and also by those writing history.

   An autobiographical approach is also used by many writers who set out to tell the events he/she witnessed. In this approach, the history of the place and events surrounding it, is told through the eyes of a person who lived it. Many say this is the best kind of history, but even those of us who attended the same event will come away with a different version of what happened. History can be confusing. This autobiographical approach was the one used by Cenith Freemon, a writer who recorded a history of Leoma, as she saw history through the lives of her relatives. It is a typical and quite useful writing method.
  Simply assembling maps, photos, post cards, letters, newspaper articles, and other historic documents in some kind of chronological order is another way to approach the task of accurately recording history. This method is expected as most folks think. “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
  For our history book about Leoma, we are using both the assembling and the autobiographical methods.  We are telling history through images and the written work of others while including memories of our families.
  As our manuscript grows we have found that we need help with specific data. We are asking for anyone who might have documents or photos for any of the topics on the following list to please contact LaShawn Baxter at the Lawrence County Advocate or stop by the Lawrence County Archives and Kathy Neidergeses will scan your copies and return to you.
   Martha Rose Woodward  e mail Sunspherebook@aol.com
We need:
Family photos; group school photos,  photos of Leoma Elementary School from 1950s to 1970s.
Photos of any and all former buildings located in Leoma and historic homes in Leoma.
Photos of any churches, inside and out, located in Leoma.

Writing a book about my home town Leoma, Tennessee

   I apologize to my viewers for not posting sooner. I have been completely absorbed in this new project. My second cousin, who is also an editor of my home county newspaper, and I are working on a history book. She is assembling historic documents, finding photos, and doing interviews as she lives in Leoma. I am writing, adding photos that are coming to us online and working hours into the night.

  I'll be posting vintage photos for the next few weeks, as these are just too good to not share.

  So many memories of times gone by...

How To Lose Weight Using Ketogenic Food Plan by Martha Rose Woodward July 2017 I lost 73 and have kept it off 11 months.

I've had several questions about Keto. Here are the answers:

                                 What I eat to MAINTAIN loss of 73 pounds.

Martha Rose's Daily Food Diary.

Breakfast: (either of these menus for any day of the week):
                       3 pieces of crisp bacon, 1 cup coffee or 1 diet cola
                                 OR
                       2 pieces crisp bacon
                       1 coffee (with ONLY one creamer) or one cup of tea or one diet cola, and
                       1  egg any style
                                 OR
                       2 pieces sausage, 1 egg any style, choice of beverage
                                  OR
                       bacon and sausage

Lunch: 1 package tuna, 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, squirt mustard, hot sauce, 1 cup (handful) lettuce with 1 tablespoon ranch dressing. OR 4 smoked hot dogs (all beef), OR any other fatty meat (I limit servings to 4 to 5 ounces), squirt mustard, 1 cup some dark green vegetable like broccoli, turnip greens, green beans cooked in butter. iced tea, diet coke, coffee or water

Dinner: Any of these choices; I rotate favorite recipes and enjoy about 12 to 15 from list
 when I want to prepare them. :
             chicken wings, Keto pizza, grilled steak, ribs or pork butt, baked chicken,  mashed cauliflower with cheese along with pork chop or meat dish, keto tacos (made with pork skins instead of taco shells, Keto casserole made with pork skins, tomato sauce, ground beef or turkey, zucchini hash browns topped with sour cream, bacon lettuce and tomato sandwiches (NO bread), baked chicken with salad, grilled fish with broccoli with cheese sauce and butter, deviled eggs with choice of meat, hamburger with cheese, tomato, lettuce, pickle; onion, Polish sausage fried with cabbage and dried onions. List can go on and on.
     Limit portions according to your size. I am 5'4". A perfect portion for me is 4 to 5 ounces. I ate more when I was heavier. As I lost pounds, I trimmed portions off so am eating smaller amounts. Makes sense: A smaller person should eat less food. Duh.

You can enjoy one dessert per day. Only eat l/2 cup. Use sour cream, whipped cream, and cream cheese and REMEMBER, ONLY 2 tablespoons per day each. Search internet for recipes.

Keep cheese to 2 ounces per day. IF you are not losing, you should stop eating cheese and see if that breaks your stall. 

Drink when thirsty. Do not go overboard on water. Use tea, coffee, or diet sodas when needed, but limit to reasonable servings. 8 to 12 a day would not be reasonable.

Rules:
Pay chose attention to total CARBS. No such thing as net carbs. A carb is a carb.
Eat REAL food. Nothing from a bag (except pork rinds) or a box.
Eat when hungry.
Stay prepared. Keep foods on hand you know are what you need to be eating.
Do not buy junk foods.
No nuts until you have gotten to your goal weight.
At a meal, eat enough to sustain you for 3 to 4 hours.
Eat from choices/ no cheating
Eat when body needs food NOT when time for a meal.
Limit snacking.
Limit food after 8 PM.
Weigh often.
Keep a detailed food diary. You will be glad you did. You will want to remember some great recipes.
Keep records of your losses for future references. Again, you will be glad you did.
Reward yourself for "non-scale" successes.
Make adjustments as needed.
Expect to hit stalls.
REMEMBER: NO ONE GETS A VOTE AS TO WHAT YOU GET TO EAT BUT YOU.
Do NOT pay attention to others and what they say or might think. IF they make a comment, repeat, "You do not get a vote in what I eat."

How I lost 73 POUNDS and have kept it off for 10 months. YAY

Per Requests: What I Eat on the Ketogenic Food Plan

In a nutshell, the Ketogenic Food Plan or Low Carb and High Fat plan gets you off of refined sugar and all other kinds of sugar. Once you truly get off sugar, you will lose the cravings you have had all your life. 

It may take you a few days or a few weeks, but it will be worth it. You will gain control of your eating behavior. 
Think of the Ketogenic Diet this way: MOSTLY NO WHITE FOODS: Eat no sugar, potatoes, rice, milk, bread or flour in any form (such as pies,cakes, donuts, or puddings based in flour).I chose not to eat fruit, but many people on the plan eat berries and other fruits in moderation. I chose to eat a few strawberries (as in one a day a few days) and ate two blackberries we raised in our yard, but I did not make fruit a regular part of my day. I also did not eat sugar free Jello until a week ago because I wanted to break myself from wanting a sweet food. IF I eat it now it will be a l/2 serving once every 3 days or not. 

WHITE FOODS YOU MAY EAT IN MODERATION:
sour cream, real whipped cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese, blue cheese dressing and Ranch Dressing
(up to 2 tablespoons per day of each)
Be careful. I NEVER eat all of these in one day. IF I eat cream cheese, I do not eat sour cream that day. Etc. I do eat mayonnaise and dressings on same days as the other 3. 

You may eat pork rinds as a crunchy treat; up to a cup or two a day. These can also be used in many recipes to add as a "breading." Be sure to search for Ketogenic Recipes using pork rinds and you will find zillions. You can also have cocoa and make a treat called "fat bombs" made with peanut butter, cocoa, non-sweetened coconut, and coconut oil that look and taste like Almond Joy candy bars. Again, check Youtube for recipes. 


What I Eat:
Breakfast is a choice of these options:
Enjoy hot beverage such as coffee or tea and drink one cup. In the coffee you can have 1 serving coffee creamer (equals 1 carb so go easy) and always use artificial sweetner to taste. I prefer Sweet N Low, but you choose for yourself.  


l egg (fried, poached, scrambled or boiled)**
l piece bacon
or
2 eggs made into an omelet cooked in Kerrygold butter (or any REAL butter you have) and adding l tablespoon of any cheese, mushrooms, red bell pepper, onion, jalepino or other vegetable of your choice. Be sure to keep the vegetables to l tablespoon in these omelets as there are carbs in veges.
or 
2 or 3 slices cooked bacon
or 
l egg (cooked any way) and l sausage patty or link
or 
2 sausage patties
or 
l bacon and 1 sausage add one egg, too, if wanted.

**This is what I eat now that I have lost 73 pounds, when I first started the plan I doubled this breakfast menu. So, if you have more than 50 pounds to lose, eat 2 eggs and 2 or 3 pieces of bacon at the same meal. IF you begin to hit a weight loss stall, cut back on one of them. 

A weight loss stall happens to most everyone who goes on this plan. It means that you are sticking to the plan as perfectly as possible and you see no weight loss for 5 days or longer. Do not panic, stay on the plan. Do not starve yourself. COUNT daily CARBS carefully. You may be having more than you think. This is called Carb Creep and is probably why you are not losing.
Keep carbs to no more than 20  grams a day, protein to no more than 20 grams a day and eat fatty meats, eggs and fish. Once you have lost 50 or more, cut  carbs to no more than 15 grams a day and keep cutting to as low as 10 or less. 


Lunch and Dinner can be the same; just spread them out with 4 to 5 hours in between. Remember, every time you eat you spike the insulin in your blood, so eat only 3 times a day. Drink water or fix the coffee as shown above as a pick-me-up. You can have up to 2 or 3 diet sodas a day at 12 oz. each for a total of 24 oz. NO DIET MOUNTAIN DEW OR MELLO JELLO.  THE ACID INTAKE WILL KEEP YOU FROM LOSING AND ROT YOUR TEETH>
IF you get thristy drink 1 to 3 cups of water a day, but be careful, you can drink too much water and inhibit the fat loss.

For your lunch or dinner meal, you need to eat at least 1/2 to 1 cup of FRESH lettuce. Choose Romaine, iceberg, or any kind of lettuce. Use other leafy greens such as spinach. You may not have all vegetables as many have tons of carbs so stick with dark green ones such as zucchini, cabbage, cauliflower, okra, kraut, red bell pepper, green bell pepper and most pickled peppers are okay, but all in moderation. Keep servings of veges at l/2 cup per day as they have tons of carbs. You may FRY IN LARD, but no breading. IF you get the lard really hot, you won't miss the breading. You may have tomatoes in moderation, but some people (like me) are HIGHLY sensitive to the sugar content, so it might inhibit weight loss. No more than 4 cherry tomatoes in one day or l/2 tennis ball size tomato per day.

You may eat 3 to 5 ounces of any meat in the world. That includes steak, hamburger, chicken, all fish and all pork. Fry, bake with skin on and be sure to leave the fat on. Eating the fat it is the best thing for you. 
A menu I also use often is a tuna salad with 1 boiled egg, small serving of veges and a tablespoon of Ranch Dressing or Blue Cheese Dressing for lunch. Many times I fry zucchini like hash browns, mixed with an egg and eat with two tablespoons of sour cream. I often eat  baked chicken or pork for dinner. I find that I do not lose so well on beef products, but that is just me, you might do fine with beef. 
You have to  learn what your body will use and what it won't. I lose really well on fried chicken wings, so I eat them at least once a week. A serving size for me is 5, but you may do well with a few more. I cover with hot sauce.
THERE IS NO "ONE SIZE FITS ALL" in dieting. Each body is different and yours will show you what you lose good on and what puts you in a stall. 

You may have up to 1 cup of sugar free Jello for dessert at lunch or dinner or l/2 cup at each. You can spread  spray-canned REAL whipped cream on top so long as you don't over do it. 

To recap lunch and dinner:
meat of your choice, limited vegetables, lettuce with each meal due to needed ruffage, but you can have leafy green turnip, mustard or spinach greens cooked in bacon grease if you don't like salads. 

I also make and eat 2 fat bombs per day and drink a cup of decaf coffee. See Youtube for recipes. These are like eating a candy bar. Add a pork rind to the mixture before it hardens and you have a Butterfinger.

Youtube is your friend as far as recipes. You will soon find that you can make all of your lifelong favorites such as pizza and cheese cake if you follow the Keto guidelines. People around the world are highly creative and have put together amazing recipes that will fool your eyes. The Keto pizza crust made from grated cauliflower and an egg is so delicious you will not believe it. You can have cheeses, pepperoni and the veges and will swear you are having a regular pizza. All the while you will see your body MELT as the fat leaves you forever.

Be sure and watch any video from Dr. Eric Berg, Dr. Eric Westman and Dr. Robert Lustig. They will teach you what to eat and explain why low carb and high fats works. Dr. Lustig will show you that sugar is the devil and you MUST get off of it. Watch Fat Chance and The Bitter Truth About Sugar by Dr. Lustig. Dr. Berg has over 4,000 videos posted and over 1 BILLION views. He will teach you everything you need to know about how your body works. Dr. Westman had himself filmed teaching the Ketogenic Diet or, as he calls it, The New Atkins. He works at Duke U. Look for what has become his famous "white coat" video. 
Help is out there for you.
You do not have to be fat. 
It is not your fault.
You are not eating too much or exercising too little, your body is allergic to carbohydrates and when you limit them the fat will melt. 35 % of Americans have this allergy and that is why many are overweight.
I eat far more now that before I went on this program. I was eating too much sugar in the form  of apples, oranges, grapefruit and other foods thinking I was dieting. These foods made me gain weight.
Nothing will motivate you more than success.
Here is how the weight came off of me:

AFTER 5 weeks....-24 pounds.
After 10 weeks........-30 pounds   
After 15 weeks..........-38 pounds
After 20 weeks...........-43.50 pounds
After 25 weeks.............-49.50 pounds
After 30 weeks............53 pounds
After 35 weeks........57 pounds
After 40 weeks......65 pounds
and today is week #47 and I have lost total 68.50
 week 52...a total of 74 pounds
ELEVEN MONTHS LATER: continue to keep weight loss steady; have not gained any weight. YAY
I went from wearing sizes 16-18 to today I am wearing size 8 and some size 6. Yes, my loss slowed down at one point. Yes, I got discouraged, but I did not go off the plan and I did not starve myself. I held firm and stayed with it, and soon, the pounds began to melt away.

IMPORTANT:
YOU ARE EITHER ON THE PLAN OR OFF. YOU CANNOT GO OFF FOR THE WEEKENDS AND BACK ON FOR THE WEEK DAYS. KETO WILL NOT WORK THAT WAY. YOU ARE EITHER ON OR OFF. THINK OF IT THIS WAY--YOU ARE EITHER DRY OR WET, YOU CANNOT BE BOTH AT SAME TIME. A WOMAN IS EITHER PREGNANT OR NOT. SHE CANNOT BE BOTH AT SAME TIME. YOU ARE INSIDE OR OUT; EMPLOYED OR WITHOUT A JOB, SITTING OR STANDING...GET IT? THINK OF YOUR OWN COMPARISONS.  THE KETOGENIC DIET WILL WORK WHEN YOUR BODY CHANGES INTO THE STATE OF BURNING STORED FAT. IF YOU EAT TOO MANY CARBS BY GOING OFF THE PLAN, EVEN ONE DAY, OR MAYBE ONE MEAL, YOU WILL GAIN WEIGHT.
I KNOW OF A GUY WHO ATE ONE TACO AND GAINED 3 POUNDS. A WOMEN DRANK ONE BEER AND GAINED 2 POUNDS. EATING SUGAR WILL KICK YOUR BODY INTO A STATE OF SUGAR BURNING AND WEIGHT WILL PILE ON LIKE MAD.
BE SURE YOU TRULY DO WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT BEFORE YOU BEGIN. YOU CANNOT PLAY AROUND WITH THIS PLAN. YOUR BODY HAS TO BURN KETONES, OR BE IN KETOSIS, FOR THIS TO WORK.
GOOD NEWS: YOU WILL DROP WEIGHT THE FASTEST OF ANY DIET YOU HAVE EVER BEEN ON, IF YOU FOLLOW IT CLOSELY. MOST PEOPLE LOSE 20 POUNDS THE FIRST MONTH. IF YOU ARE NOT LOSING, YOU ARE NOT USING THE PLAN CORRECTLY. IT DOES TAKE SOME PEOPLE A FEW DAYS TO SHOW LOSSES, BUT I BEGAN LOSING THE FIRST DAY.  EVERYONE I KNOW WHO HAS GONE ON IT HAS LOST TONS OF WEIGHT.
ONE PERSON WHO DID NOT LOSE REFUSED TO GIVE UP MILK. DON'T BE STUBBORN. MILK IS HIGH IN SUGAR AND WAS MADE FOR BABY COWS NOT PEOPLE.
GOOD LUCK AND BE SURE TO E MAIL ME WITH YOUR RESULTS. Sunspherebook  @ aol. com

I have kept the 73 pounds I lost OFF for 10 months. YAY

Rainy and hot here in Knoxville this weekend.

FINALLY got my housework caught up. When I get involved in craft projects I tend to let things to, not to a bad point, but mopping dog hair and cleaning the kitchen seem to get set aside for a day or two. LOL

I did finish the two quilt tops I have been piecing and plan to take to the quilter's next week. Also, did make a few more costumes for next Spring for a team of 7th graders who do a Medieval Days Festival in May. Continue to store and deal with all the items I bought 3 weeks ago in the yard sale where I spent $14 and got $1,000 in merchandise. There were several pieces about 5" square in the mix so I am going to start sewing those together this week. I plan to do a random pattern, not even a 4 Square or 9 Patch. I'll make the quilt about 85 x 90 or near to that size. There is plenty of cloth in there for me to use as a backing, too. I do not need any more quilts, but why not?

Also, delivered 18 baby blankets/quilts to a local agency that helps needy families. I have been making a donating blankets/quilts to them since 2003. IF my count is correct, and I think it is, I have donated a total of 186 during the last 14 years or 10 to 12 a year each year. I was recruited to make items by one of my best friends, Phyllis Garrison, (1936-2014) when she volunteered with a local church to help with their food bank. She called and said they needed quilts and blankets for babies and I should make some, so I did. I enjoy it and appreciate that the items go straight into the arms of people who need them.

Tumbler pattern; each piece is 6 ".

This quilt turned out to have mostly greens and reds; not planned.

Finished 2 quilts I've been working on.

Pattern is Star of Bethlehem variation

Had a great trip and visit at Leoma Elementary School


         Cousin Lisa Roberts Jagod, my cousin, is a teacher at Leoma Elementary School. I am so very proud of her.

Folks always ask me what I ate in order to lose 73 pounds and keep it off for 8 months (so far).

  I used the No Sugar: No Starch Diet also called Ketogenic Diet.

  It worked for me.

  All diet plans do not work for each person. You have to find out what works for you.

  Please read page 4. It contains what NOT to eat, and rules to follow.

  Good luck.

  Remember, follow as closely as possible. Do not starve and do not quit.

Questions from Newbies

People are constantly asking me about the Ketogenic Food Plan.

Please use Youtube and search any video from these folks: Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Eric Berg, Professor Tim Noakes, Dr. Robert Lustig and Gary Taubes. Spend some time learning what these experts have to say and you will stop believing the old way of dieting. You probably will NOT lose weight if you diet and exercise. You have to fix your allergy to carbohydrates in order to lose weight and keep it off. Exercise only serves to make you more hungry and causes you to retain water in your sore muscles. You'd be better off to take a nap than go to the gym or club. IF diet and exercise worked everyone would be at a perfect weight. Think about it. Also, please stop drinking so much damned water. ONLY drink when you are thirsty. Who wants you to drink more water? The people who sell bottled water, that's who. Stop falling for fake news and fake opinions. Do you think your ancestors drank 100 ounces of water per day? Hell no.....read the new way and stop believing the fake suggestions from people who want to sell you something.

Professor Tim Noakes is a leading expert on Keto. Read and learn. You can do this; I did.


UPDATED 16 JULY 2014

What Tim Noakes eats

If you're trying the Tim Noakes diet, aka the Banting diet, you may be wondering what the Professor himself eats, and why.

92
Tim Noakes' high-fat, low carb diet (Banting) has created more than a stir among professionals and the public, but there's no denying that it's worked for him since he is predisposed to develop adult-onset diabetes - what is known as “carbohydrate resistant” (CR) and hence “pre-diabetic”. 

According to Prof Noakes, those who are profoundly carbohydrate resistant (CR) (as he is) must restrict carbohydrates as much as possible to delay the onset of type 2 diabetesfor as long as possible and hopefully for ever. 

He finds it easiest to simply remove these foods from his diet. Those with lesser degrees of CR (and carbohydrate addiction) will not need to be as restrictive as  much.

ReadNoakes on carbohydrate intolerance
Foods that Tim Noakes has removed from his diet

- Sugar (Must be completely removed from your diet) 
- All sugary drinks including cola drinks and sweetened fruit juices Bread
- Rice
- Pasta
- Potatoes
- Porridge
- Breakfast cereals
- Some high energy fruits like bananas
- All confectionary – cakes and sweets
- Desserts containing sugar and carbohydrates
- Artificial sweetners and products containing these products (like “diet” colas)
- Vegetable oils containing high concentrations of omega 6 fatty acids

He also warns everyone to be very wary of so-called “low-fat” “healthy” options, yoghurt especially, since these are laden with sugar and so are less healthy than are the full fat options.

In fact one needs to check the sugar contents of all the foods that one eats. It is astonishing how many contain hidden sugar (which is of course there for a very good reason – for it is addictive, driving the overconsumption of the foodstuffs into which it is added).

ReadWhy the world is becoming fatter and fatter and Why sugar is getting such a bad rap

Noakes believes that most dieticians would agree that none of the foods listed above is essential for health and some like sugar and other refined carbohydrates are definitely unhealthy. 

"Some dieticians argue that whole grain cereals should be included because they are “healthy” but I have had difficulty finding whole grain cereals that have not been heavily refined."

ReadTim Noakes: refined carbs may be toxic

"It is also clear that allergies to grains and cereals are commoner than is realised and I wonder if some of the benefit I have derived might not be due to removal of some undetected allergens in cereals or grains. 

Indeed I have “cured” myself completely of two allergic (respiratory) conditions and one gastrointestinal complaint since adopting this eating plan. "

ReadWhat you can expect of Noakes' book The Real Meal Revolution

Making choices

Professor Noakes says "The real point is that if one is as CR as am I, one has to make choices of (i) how much carbohydrate one wants to eat each day. 

I limit myself to between 50-75 grams a day as that is the amount that allows me to regulate my body weight effortlessly without hunger – and (ii) which carbohydrate sources will provide that scanty amount of carbohydrate. 

I have chosen to get my miserly grams of carbohydrate from highly nutritious vegetables and dairy produce, not from whole grain cereals. Others might be advised to make a different choice."

ReadShould protein and carbs be eaten separately?

Tim Noakes restricts his food choices to the following food and beverage groups: 

- Eggs – from free range hens
- Fish – an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids
- Meat – not processed and preferably from sources that are organically raised eating grass. This group includes biltong, preferably game or ostrich.
- Dairy Produce – milk, cheese and yoghurt – all full cream and from organically fed cows.
- Vegetables – mainly leafy, low carbohydrate sources like lettuce but also including broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, avocado and many others. The choice is based on their nutrient value and their low carbohydrate content.
- Nuts – especially macadamias, walnuts and almonds but specifically excluding the non-nuts, peanuts and cashews which are high in carbohydrates.
- Fruits – only those which have a lower carbohydrate content like berries and apples.
- Water, tea and coffee (all unsweetened)!

I eat my fill from these food groups and am no longer hungry. 

In a previous article for Health24, he quoted:

"I eat eggs, bacon, sausage for breakfast OR cheese, yoghurt and the previous night's fat/protein meal. For lunch I will snack on cheese, nuts, biltong and for dinner one of the delicious meals fromReal Meal Revolution with lots of vegetables/salads. "

In fact my preferred choice is now to eat a “proper meal” only once every 12-24 hours. I wonder whether humans are truly designed by our evolutionary history to eat large meals, three times every 12 hours (during the day).

I PROMISE to make video and post more within the next few days. Trip out of town got me behind.

I had a fabulous time in Chattanooga last Wednesday and Thursday. There are some absolutely awesome teachers and students at Signal Mountain Middle School. Love, love, love them. We made well over 70 costumes for Medieval Days and helped others with ideas for making their own. We used items given to us or purchased at yard sales so the students learned how to turn trash into treasure without spending $40 to $60 for a costume.

I'll get more things filmed and get videos edited within the next few weeks. Just trying to catch up from the trip. Love to all my viewers and keep checking; more coming soon.
