After my “The End” post, I received no less than 349 emails. Some of the emails, brought me to tears, literally.
Without going into too many details, FeelGoodEating, somehow motivated and inspired many people for a good amount of years. The personal stories and details that people shared with me are simply amazing. I’m not only flabbergasted, but extremely humbled.
There was a main “theme” running through the majority of emails. And the theme was MOTIVATION.
Somehow, readers of the blog, found some motivation through FGE over the years.
After a long Memorial day weekend, some wonderful and amazing talks with my beautiful wife, I’ve decided to keep FeelGoodEating going. BUT, with a slight change.
I’m going to simply start serving up a dose of FEELGOOD on a regular basis. Food pictures will be part of the mix still, but not perhaps every post and not a lot of detailed recipe info. There are plenty of really good resources online for that. More like blue-prints on how to construct a good shopping list and meal plan for the week.
The format is about to change. And I think, you will like. I believe I can do better…and I’m going for it.
Over the coming weeks, please share your feedback with me. Comments or emails all work for me, but I welcome and ask for your input and suggestions.
I think it’s different what I’m about to try and I’m excited about it. I will also take the time over the coming weeks to update the blog. More to follow.
THANK YOU EVERYONE for your emails and comments, it put an even bigger smile on my face than normal.
“See this world as a free world, and see everyone in it as trying—through their individual experiences—to find their way. And even though there are billions of them going about it in a way that is different than perhaps you would choose, there’s no right or wrong way! In other words, wish them all well and send them your good thoughts, then get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is how YOU FEEL.” A
Thank you and I look forward to this new chapter for FGE
A little eating out tip. Going against conventional wisdom…. Mexican food places/ TexMex are actually a very good place to eat out, if you are trying to stay on track. While on assignment here in Lousiana, my food options are not great. But, it can be done. Below a typical meal that I order. I just ask for a salad with avocado and 6-10 shrimp. It’s really a nice clean crips meal. I don’t even put dressing on this one. Just some squeezed lemon (juice) combined with fresh mushed up avocado. They did sprinkle some cheese on there, which they normally don’t do (I did not eat it as it tasted like plastic, not cheese :-)).
