Feasts are simple: coffee, oil,
Vegetables that grow in soil,
Baked or fried or raw - delight -
Fasting follows starry night.
All to serve and not for self.
Herbs stand watch upon the shelf.
Eat and drink the mystery.
Blessings offered thankfully.

We are on a strict diet. It is mostly vegetarian except for eggs. No to foods like meat, sugar, grains, corn or alcohol. Yes to foods such as sweat potatoes, red onions, walnuts, coffee, millet and olive oil. The intermittent fast starts around 4 pm and ends around 10 am. The diet comes from mixing foods that seemed to work for us. We have tried recommendations from those promoting vegan, vegetarian, keto or diets avoiding lectins. We’re still looking. So if you have recommendations on what works for you, I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
So far this slowing changing diet has kept our weights under control, reduced brain fog and shown promising results on blood tests. The goal is not to live longer, but to serve well as long as we live.
