I write software and support it for my software company.

I enjoy and play a wide range of music on banjo... Appalachia, Broadway, Bluegrass, Pop and Rock.

A great link ( and favorite of mine ) is:

My cooking/diet is healthy, balanced and satisfying.

Protien Ideas???
Hi wasinger,
Well since Stevia is natural, been used for a long time
without any bad "press" and since it tastes fine ( to me )
I think it is a better safer way to go.

PS re my last post.. the percentages listed below are handy guide.

.............Fat 60-65g,..............................Carbs220g.........Protein 60-70
..................=<30%...................................55-65%..................... 15-20%

My concept in general is:
I eat what I want .. within reason Smile
and then write it down... later I enter the data into Fatsecret.. then I tweek my next meal to get closer to my ideal balance. It is like looking at the dashboard in your car and seeing that you may need to add some oil or water etc.
For example today I was way out of balance so I added a 100 g Maple Grove's waffle ( it is awesome ) and added some jam ... It got the numbers back on target. Please take a look at my diet for today ( Sun. Jan 5, 2014 )... I will work on finishing off that mega waffle during the day.
