Living Slim’s First Amazon Review!

First reader review on Amazon.ca!! Thanks Alexander Roth.

I’m particularly happy that this review mentioned the deliciousness of the food I write about. I believe deeply that healthy eating is happy eating. That good food is delicious food. And that our relationship with food works best when it is full of positivity, gratitude and joy.

Korean Food: Yum

It’s true.  I have given Korean food short shrift, but not anymore. (Blame it on an unhappy and goopy experience in a food court.)

But it helps in life to have friends who get you to try new things!  This spread was delicious, nutritious, and full-on worthy of Living Slim’s seal of approval. 

Note: not much in the way of heavily processed foods.  Can we learn something there… All kinds of good tastes and good nutrients from the soup, the seaweed, the egg, the meat, the veggies, and that yummy purple rice. 

This was a spread for four, and we all ate to our complete satisfaction! 

After which it was a dive into something completely else: PEI turn of the (last) century culture as we enjoyed an outdoor variation of Anne (with an e) of Green Gables in beautiful Guild Park. #livingslimcanadian

Ontario peach season. Woo hoo!

Picked up a basket of these sweeties at my local East Lynn Farmer’s Market this week.  Two days later, five little baggies, each containing two perfectly ripe and oh-so-delicious peaches went into my freezer.  Woo-hoo!  January breakfasts, here I come!!

It’s my first time trying this.  I’m taking lessons from a friend mentioned in my book who happily exemplifies the first and most important Living Slim principle: valuing, prioritizing and enjoying real foods.

“One Ontario friend recently showed me her large stash of plastic baggies, filled with frozen, cut-up Ontario peaches that she had put by, as my aunt on the farm might have done, for her breakfasts during our cold Canadian winters when the quality of the imports simply cannot compete.” – Living Slim: A Canadian Woman’s Way

Happy to have this book in my hands at last, and equally happy to take it out in public for the very first time at my local farmers’ market. This market was launched by a tiny group of intrepid Canadian women, filled with idealism, hope, and a profound determination to making the world a better place, starting in their own backyard.

Their joyful and courageous spirit continues to animate the neighbourhood association they also helped launch. I couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate this book.
