The baked zucchini I tried yesterday wasn't what I expected, but still good. So today I thought I'd try another recipe. This one was for zucchini chips. The recipe said it was a healthy alternative to potato chips or French fries. I disagree. These are more like a healthier alternative to breaded mushrooms or pickles. My husband even tried a couple. I was expecting something crunchy like potato chips, but now I wonder if it was an "American" recipe or if the chips reference was really what we call fries. That could be. Anyway, I have yet another recipe to try. This one involves the dehydrator, my old friend. Just slice zucchini thin, add a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, put in the dehydrator, and voila! I'm glad I bought two zucchini today.

I know where the food fair is, but it's not until next week. That will make it a little harder since I think I have a birthday party to go to for my husband's niece and nephew. Then again, it's on our way so maybe we can stop before we head out.

When I had a hermit crab before I don't remember it taking a lot of effort. Looking up information last night it says they need a heater, fresh and salt water, and a minimum 10 gallon tank. I still want one (or 4) but don't see it being the best idea for a group of 2 year olds. I don't remember what size tank I had, but don't think it was very big, and used fish gravel. And I know we just used fresh water and had no heater.

I'm still confused about what's going on with my body. I ate crap yesterday, including a candy bar and frozen yogurt. I weighed myself this morning and it's the lightest I've been. Maybe it is the water.

    Keep trying new recipes - sometimes you don't know what you're going to get until you get it. I'm sure you'll find a few good ones along the way.

    Remember, it takes 24-48 hours for a 'normal' digestive system to send food from one end to the other. Just because you ate it yesterday doesn't mean you're going to see a change the next day. It could take 2 or even 3 days to see the results if you eat something you can consider 'crap'. But having 1 down day is not going to negate the other good days you've had. Moderate the next few days, add in an extra few minutes of exercise and stick with more fruits and veggies, then a few mistaken choices won't make a big difference.

    I agree about the veggie chips ... they aren't like "chips" Now Kale chips are closer to a chip. that is just kale torn into bite size pieces, sprinkled with oil and salt (or parmesan cheese) and baked. LOVE THOSE!
    I've never had a hermit crab. .... what about just some goldfish?

    I stay confused about my body!!! I keeping waiting for it to make up it's mind!!

    Hope your having a great day!!
