A Painting I did titled " Pomegranates "
One of the Super Foods

You've heard it all : Pasta's good for you, carbs are out, don't eat too much red meat, eat lots of veggies and fruit, drink 8 glasses of water a day, etc., etc. This morning's news said that the latest research has shown that eating every OTHER day results in longer life. Really, or does it just seem longer ? They went on to say that our ancestors used up a lot of time and energy gathering their food and didn't always eat everyday. It was feast and famine.

I dunno if I'm buying this theory. I'm not a big eater but when my stomach starts to growl I shut it up with good stuff-lots of veggies and fruits, whole grains, and plenty of water of course.

I also read where drinking is bad for you. I've got to stop reading SO much !


  1. You definitely need to stop reading so much. You're going mess it up for all of us!

    That's quite a good painting, by the way. Now I'm hungry for some pomegranates!

  2. Happy Boxing Day! I have selective hearing when it comes to the food scientists. I hear them loud & clear when they say chocolate, wine, pomegranate & blueberries are good for you. Fasting for a day a month? What did you say? I can't hear you over the sound of me crunching my apple!

  3. Hi Carol,

    Thanks for your compliment on my painting.

    I guess I DO read too much. Not many people even read the newspaper anymore and get all their news on the internet or TV but it's hard for me to give it up.

  4. I said every other day, MMD - not once a month ! Can you imagine not eating every other day ?

    They say if you eat chocolate before drinking wine it tastes better. I'm here to tell you that they are correct in this regard.

  5. I've decided you just can't believe everything you read. :) And your painting is absolutely beautiful! What a talent!

  6. That's so true, Nancy. Thanks for your comments.

  7. Yes, I'm with others; the so-called 'experts' come up with something every second Saturday that will cure fallen arches in Idaho or cause eyes to be bluer or be the next great wonderdrug. Remember Oat Bran? (Oats are good, true..unless you can't eat them).
    I figure life is gonna get me no matter how I play it!
    My problem is I'm on an assortment of medications for assorted illnesses, and trying to remember what interacts with what how and enough to make me want to become a non-eater!

  8. Sounds like enough to drive you crazy, Jodi. Life will gets us, of course, sooner or later, let's just all try to make it as late as possible !

  9. Very impressed with your painting! May your days be merry and bright. Happy holidays!

  10. Thanks, Joey. That painting is special to me because it was the first one I sold. Happy New Year to you.

  11. Oh good grief! Sometimes I wonder about "modern science".

    LOVE the painting!!!! Just gorgeous! I have a pomegranate bush so I love seeing them in paintings.
