What Amanda is talking about in #1 here I actually did in 2009, complete with reading Bittman's Food Matters (highly recommended, btw). I did really well with it, too. Being "vegan until 6," I managed to lose weight. Unfortunately, I fell off the food wagon in 2010 and gained it all back, plus some. I'm not in "lose weight or die" territory by any stretch, but I'm not healthy, either.

Perhaps I'll have to dust off my copy of Food Matters and get reinspired. I really do like a good salad for lunch.

Since our usual CSA is taking some time off this year (at least from veggies - you can still get fresh-cut, organic flowers from http://www.fullcirclefarms.com/), we're going to take a year off, too, and spend the money we would have spent on the CSA at local farmers markets. We have an amazing one here in Bellefonte, and the one in Millheim is also great on quality and value.

As for cooking, we started the year off right with a stir fry dish last night (This one from Mark Bittman, in fact) and fresh-baked bread. It was a disappointment on both parts, with the broccoli coming out overcooked and the bread coming out bitter. But getting back in the habit of cooking and baking feels right.
