I have looked at my self and I like the person

that my work has been creating.

Now I want more so I will work more on me.

I have no time to worry and think about what

others will do or will think of me.

I am working on me and it is OK.

Gang Stay Focused And Stay Successful.

Feeding the soul.

cooking with love

We must love ourselves enough to take the time

to take care of ourselves and those we care about.

We can show and share love with the meals we cook.

In order to take care of others we must take care of

ourselves. In order to accomplish our hopes and dreams

we must take care of our bodies first.

A meal might not seem so important, but those of us

working on losing the weight, regaining our health,

it is very important. It is center in our day-to-day.

Weight loss is never easy so we must take every single

opportunity that presents itself to make a difference,

even a small difference is important.

Do not forget: Every meal counts. Every calorie counts.

Cooking. The Other Art.

For those of us with a passion for cooking,

and the creation of great meals for us and

our loved ones, the term chef carries weight,

carries passion and a responsibility to the whites.

Those of us with the passion, and a desire to gain

control over our weight it becomes even more

important, and an intrinsic part of our day-to-day.

The knowledge to make a meal low carb, low salt,

paleo, or whatever the current “trend” is makes a

world of difference.

I personally know  that the knowledge has helped

me and others with the battle of the pounds.

I guess my suggestion is: Learn as much as you can

and use it. For the longest time I used to cook once

a week, for the whole week. It helped me stay on track

and I enjoyed that day creating good, tasty, flavorful,

nutritious meals within my diet limitations. My diet

for many years has been: Low fat, Low sodium,

Low carb meals. I really enjoyed grilling meats and

vegetables for my meals.  I also made at least two different

soups enough for 4 meals at least.

Cooking, good cooking is a pleasure. Learn and

take your skills for a spin.

Stay focus remain successful.

A Real Chef.

chef-shirt

Sometime ago while still active in the Work Force

I was Executive Chef for Banner Health Systems.

During that time I had a chance to work with some

great talent but I also had a chance to see the amazing

difference between a real and an implied chef.

I worked with J. Mazza a then young, inspired and very

creative chef. I also worked with some amazing cooks.

And the passion that this guys had was so amazing that

quieted down the negative noise and bad JUJU that we all

had to deal with from our Director. It was an inspiration

that stayed with me. We knew that we were making an

impact on every single patient in that hospital.

I have also worked with lazy ass cooks that all they can

do is talk about how somewhere in the past they “used”

to do this or the other and go on and on about mother

sauces.  Or the implied chef that best they can do is buy

a bag of cubed cheese or pre-made pastries and present

it as Haute  Cousine.

Let us honor some real true culinarians.

Joe Mazza Banner health. Matt Williams Iasis Health.

Lilly Mae Hanes  Gerald Champion Memorial.

Adelina Castaneda Carondelet Health.

Darryl Dunn and Hung Lee form Iasis Health Care.

Health Care cooking is hardest because of the pre-conceived

idea that institutional food is bad. Let me tell you

you would be lucky to eat food prepared by this gang

of culinary misfits.

Gang we might be on a diet or trying to lose weight but

that does not mean that we should not enjoy our food.

In large it is me wanting to enjoy food while simultaneously

wanting to lose weight that pushed me towards the Atkins

Diet. I love bacon. I am not quitting bacon so here I am.

Find a new restaurant. Go to the heart hospital if you are

in the Phoenix area and have one of their award-winning

burritos. Yes they are that good. Gang find something to

enjoy. Go eat something new something exciting.

Stay focus stay successful.
