I am just fine with dairy, and otherwise eat pretty much as I wish. Sorry Ruth, but prunes just aren't my thing. I eat them sometimes, including fresh in plum cake form.
I am off in a bit to WALK the two miles each way to REI to pick up my packet for the Seattle-to-Portland which is this coming weekend. This will be my sixth. I plan on getting the weight-bearing exercise trudging up the hills, so my guess is about three miles of walking uphill with bicycle and 202 of cycling over the two days. I am getting new contact lenses so I can see the potholes. (My eye health is fine...just flat corneas so a focal distance of Uranus.)
As of last year, my bones were just fine.
I think based on the comments that sometimes a diet change is in order, and sometimes not. I would hate to try to eat enough spinach to get my calcium that way (and I love spinach). So grateful to be able to drink milk, eat cheese, and of course Greek Yogurt. I can't wait for tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad which is about a month away in this NW climate.
And after that......mmmmmmmm......plum cake! Such a treat, and requires fresh prune plums. But before all that, the last of the local strawberries.
Which is why I cycle - Claire
Completed all active treatment (AC +T, lumpectomy, and radiation). Now on to the rest of my life. So much to celebrate.
