I was to be called when everyone was together to go to dinner, then
we'd go together.

Never got the call.

So I'm eating alone at the bar at a Mexican restaurant in the adjacent
mall. Nice.

Actually, it's not so bad. I think I have charged too much on my
burning the candle at both ends credit card, and could sleep for a week.

As for the food, The refried beans at this restaurant are not dog
food, but are closer to dishwater than anything that is well spiced.

The chicken tacos I green sauce redeem the anemic flavor of the beans.
With the tacos came a salad of greens, avocado, and standard issue
orange rice that might as well be plastic because no one eats it.

The name if the restaurant is Mi Cucina, and has the potential to be a
good restaurant when it grows up.

The margaritas were not a lime wine cooler in drag, so that was a
pleasant surprise.

Overall, mi cucina is serving mall food in a high end mall. Expect the
expected and ye shall not be disappointed.

How close are we to a farmers market? My guess is that it's further. I wonder why we have such drastic health problems ... Maybe it's our genes or the carbs or our blood type -- or not.

Maybe its that we are coached to believe terrible food is okay and vacuous food is part of a balanced breakfast as long as you grind up a multi-vitamin into it.

Maybe it's that our culture now demands unhealthy food to such an extent that nowhere is immune (up to 107 miles).

That's what is sad.


I'm in Dallas this weekend for the Obesity Help conference. I'll be
speaking tomorrow.

This is a group that I'm very excited to approach and coach. This
group needs a structure of solutions around which they can Start
applying healthy lifestyle solutions.

And these solutions must be ones that last beyond the tenure of the
