10 Rules of Dieting

Here are my 10 rules of dieting.  I'm not a dieting expert, so take them for what they are worth.   

Rule #1:  Eat less and exercise more (If you do nothing else, simply apply this one rule)

Rule #2:  Don't drink your calories (as a corollary to this rule, remember that aspartame is NOT your friend) 

Rule #3:  Before you eat anything chant the following:  "Less sugar, less salt, less fat."  

Rule #4:  Eat more veggies, more fruits and more whole grains. 

Rule #5:  Think twice before eating anything made of white flour.  (Remember, the whiter the bread, the sooner your dead.)

Rule #6:  Drink more water (how much more?  Who knows, just drink more water) 

Rule #7:   Don't eat after 8pm.  (This one rule would save most of us) 

Rule #8:  If you can prepare the food for consumption and leave it on the counter at room temperature for three days and it is still edible, then don't eat it in the first place.

Rule #9:  Never eat anything with packaging that weighs more than the food inside the packaging.    

Rule #10:  If you think you need to go on the latest fad diet, first bounce that diet off of the direction given in the Word of Wisdom (Click here to read it if you have never heard of it).  If the diet is telling you to do something that contradicts section 89, then find a new diet.

Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?

It is time for the showdown.  Which one is best: Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?  Or is it (as was my opinion) that they are all exactly the same?

I decided to do a taste test.  Six people participated.  Three were salad testers and three were burrito testers.  None of the people who participated have any food judging experience although a couple of them have competed in cooking contests and have a couple of first place finishes to their name.   Each couple went to a different restaurant and picked up a Sweet Pork Salad and an Steak Burrito to go.  We ordered each salad with black beans and their creamy green dressing (whatever they happened to call it).  The steak burritos were ordered enchilada style with black beans. Then we all met at a central location and judged each dish on the following:

Value Score = Weight (oz)/Cost($)
Overall Appeal (visual appeal, aroma, garnish)
Recipe (Cooking, ingredient combination, too moist or dry)
Taste (Flavor combination, Seasoning, Texture)

Sea Arch at Cabo

We just returned from a cruise to the Mexican Riviera.  Great Trip!  I didn't take my good camera, so these pictures were all taken with a Canon A1100IS, then processed in Aperture.

This is the sea arch at the end of the Baja peninsula near Cabo San Lucas

Old Barn

I don't want to be known as the guy who takes pictures of old barns, but I have to admit that I think old barns are cool.  This one is especially cool with a hole in the roof.

There is nothing special about this photo.  It is just a 3 shot photomatix HDR bracketed at +/- 2 stops at F8.  I messed with the saturation, contrast and sharpness a bit.
