*this is pretty much everything i eat. from this list, i create my menus for the day and, by extension, of course, the week. because my daughters are all young women, their nutritional requirements are enough like mine that i can use my preferences and needs as a basis from which to build theirs.

so, you consider potatoes red? i thought they were a brown food, regardless of their skin color.

i usually only eat red potatoes, and they definitely don't feel like a brown food to me.

Excellent food choices, love all the fruits and veggies. One of the best things my Angels helped me do was lose my taste for soda pop.
