It’s very hard when I’m traveling to get the volume of veggies I normally eat. So, first stop at home is at Hyde Park Produce!

A key first step in my weight loss program is TRIPLING your daily intake of vegetables. Fruit is good, but it should be eaten, not drunk as juice!

I did residency at the University of Virginia, where they revere their founder, Thomas Jefferson.  TJ had his issues (Sally Hemings?), but I ascribe to the follow aphorism of his:

“I have lived temperately, eating little animal food, and that . . . as a condiment for the vegetables, which constitute my principal diet.”
