My mother's garden has been really producing this week, so we're scrambling to get my sons to eat some of the veggies. I got creative last night and made stuffed bell peppers, and the boys really loved them!

I used extra-lean ground turkey, shredded zucchini and Japanese eggplant, onion, garlic and chopped fresh tomatoes. I also included whole wheat couscous and seasoned it all with salt, pepper and Greek oregano. Then I topped them with crumbled feta and mizithra cheeses. Mizithra is a hard Greek sheep or goat cheese, similar in nature to Parmesan, but with a tangier flavor.

So after the boys finished eating, I let them know about the zucchini and eggplant. My older son said he knew "something" was in there, and the younger one said, "Is there any more?"

I didn't really choose any brand name diet, but I think that the closest they come to the way I am now eating is the Med diet. I have been doing it without any meat though. No turkey, chicken, seafood. I rarely eat bread also. I usually eat vegetables and rice or pasta, and a bit of cheese--

I finally bought The Mediterranean Diet and Sonoma Diet books (used) on amazon today! I'm excited. I don't ever have a shortage of recipe ideas, but I feel like I'd benefit from having a few resources to access on a regular basis.

It's somewhat easy to be "Mediterranean" at this time of year, when everything is in season. I wonder what winter is going to be like??

Today, I made a lentil/bean/rice dish for lunch (and for work lunches this week), and I had a tuna-curry salad in a pita for dinner (tuna, mayo/yogurt, curry powder, celery, raisins, almonds).

For fresh produce, I have a mediocre peach and a mediocre nectarine (you know how they get kind of mealy textured? ick). I'm going to cut them up and freeze them for smoothies. I stopped at a farmer's stand and got some fresh cucumber, tomatoes, and corn. I have celery and carrots as well.

As usual, my level of exercise is low, but I'm going to commit to going for a walk before this Sunday evening is up.

I hope everybody is doing well!

Oooo, all those fresh veggies are making me hungry, haha. I'm always intimidated about stopping at a farmers stand, not sure why! I'm sure I'll have to try it one of these days. Oh, and about the peaches, I totally know what you mean, it's so hard to find a good one!!
