I'm a 75-year-old SW Louisiana Cajun. I moved to Houston in 1991, and love living here, one of the most diverse cities in the country, where over 140 languages are spoken and celebrated.

I was the Finance Director for two outstanding non-profits, first Crisis Hotline (Crisis Intervention of Houston), and then Neuhaus Education Center. I retired in 2010, and enjoy living a life with no deadlines and little stress. I'm very happy to be a part of this group; you all inspire me.

Vegetarians?
Look under groups, I believe there are some vegetarian groups, some may be low carb. I just follow CICO and that seems to be working for me, as there are no food restrictions (I'm not a vegetarian). Good luck on your journey and welcome.

HEY
Hi Maddi, I try to avoid processed foods most of the time, so I usually snack on fruit when I want something sweet. Fresh pineapple (buy the golden yellow, not the pale yellow), grapes, oranges, mangos, apples, are all very sweet, satisfy my cravings, and are healthy (and relatively low in calories. I count calories, thus no food is forbidden, so occasionally I'll have 1 or 2 cookies with a glass of milk or 1 serving of ice cream, but not often. For salty snacks, I eat cucumber or carrot sticks with salt, pepper and vinegar or cherry tomatoes with 1 ounce of cheese or red peppers with riccoto cheese with a sprinkle of salt. I don't snack between meals very much, because I don't get hungry usually. When I do feel like a bottomless pit, I make cabbage soup (there are several recipes in the recipe file) because I can just eat and eat and eat it without going over my RDI (recommended daily intake). Hope this helps a little. Good luck!

less than 1000 calories?
Nancyjoel, thank you for your explanation, it made great sense to me. No I have a better understanding of how I should be eating. 😊
