I don’t spend a lot of time in Everett. Mostly I curse the traffic gods as I inch along Interstate 5 at a snail’s pace past Everett. This city lies between me and the vegetarian restaurant jackpot that is Seattle, so I never really considered stopping there for food. Until last week.

On a recent trip we found a new favorite place to dine: Heirloom Restaurant. We were so impressed we ate there twice, once for dinner and again the next morning for brunch. Continue Reading →
We finally made it to fat! This is the fourth in a series of posts on the nutritional content of my lunches, including calories, protein, and carbohydrate. Today it’s fat’s turn, and boy did I learn a thing or two from logging my lipids. Continue Reading →
