Habit Forming and Freaky Foods

I've read that human beings form a habit after three weeks of performing a repetitive activity.

So for example; if you don't floss your teeth but want to start, you force yourself to do it every day for three weeks and it will become simple second nature to you.

So... if I get through three weeks without binging, will not binging become a habit?

In other news I went to the farmer's market this morning and intentionally picked up the odd looking fruits and vegetables I could find.

The little squished down fuzzy thing is a "saturn" or "doughnut" peach - this particular one is firm and very sweet and has a faint mango flavor to it that's very nice, although the peach fuzz on it's outside is somewhat more bristly than a normal peach.

The scary white thing is an albino eggplant that I plan to grill this evening. I'm guessing it's going to taste the same as regular eggplant but I'm eager to find out.

I love the Saturday outdoor Farmer's Mart - not only do I support my local growers, but I get fresh, tasty food and interesting new things to try.


  1. You're looking much less tired and feline today.

  2. I guess it means my self esteem is a little better if I'm willing to make my profile picture ME instead of my cat?
