Busy life--wouldn't have it any other way!! You can tell by y site name I like whole foods. I love to cook all kinds of natural foods and delve into many cuisines. I'm a leftover health food nut from the 70's who has always loved exploring cusines from all over the globe. There are all sorts of interesting foods to try. I also have 20+ years of restaurant background. I also make beer and wine.

I work full time as a customer service rep for a mutual fund company. I'm also a professional long-arm quilter and quilt quilts for people. A side part of that is selling the longarm machines doings some teaching, and sell a few supplies. Quilting is a passion. Learning to make wire wrapped jewlery.

I am currently single with 9 grandchildren. I spend alot of time at grandkids sports events and in the summer attending mud runs as one daughter and her husband race and fishing for catfish with another son-in-law and grandaughter--we leave my daughter in bed as she hates mornings. I'm slowly remodeling my house and most of the year work on my yard and gardens one of these days I'll get both so I'm happy with them. I always seem to be tearing something apart.

By losing weight and getting back into shape I hope to be able to keep up with my life without getting so tired and be able to do more of the things I like to do. Hoping that once I lose the wt doc tells me I need to I will feel better about myself and get involved in a new relationship.

I live with a chatty and very onery Quaker Parrot, an 8yr old pom mix male dog who thinks he's a big dog, and a little girl boston terrier mix puppy born 3-31-13 She's a very active character.-wish I had her almost never ending energy. My goal is to train her for agility competition should be fun. Also playing with making homemade wholesome dog treats.

I also sit at a computer an on the phone all day, chained to our desks LOL. I'm not a muncher but find when I get hungry for sweets especially mid-afternoon some grapes, chucked up melon, berries, or other fruit satisfies that. I pack a container of them in my lunch box most days. If it's one that will brown a sprinkle of lime or lemon juice and shake it up will tame that.

Searching food database/google search workaround
Oh, there are still lots of foods missing. Wish there was a way we could add to that data base

advice needed
Make your way of eating and your exercise part of your life, not a diet that will run it's course. Sounds easy but it does take commitment and effort.

There are lots of foods that are not on fat secret's data base. How do you use a Google work around?

Vegetable pasta
You can also substitute eqqplant for the noodles in lasagna. Quinoa pasta, buckwheat, and other pastas are also good. I started making pasta awhile ago. Have a beautiful Italian hand crank machine. Still not the best at it, but getting better.
