I am enjoying people’s reactions to the commercial I made with Ron Santo. He’s a man I greatly admire and, as many baseball fans tell me, he was a fantastic third baseman for some fine Cubs teams. I’m told that when he was playing he was an intense competitor—well, I admire that trait. Even more so, I am inspired by his courage and like very much his gentlemanly manner. He’s got my vote for the Hall of Fame.
My appreciation of baseball is for the sport in general. I like it at all levels, from kids to pros. Over the years, I’ve become a Cubs fan—and since I’m not caught up in partisan frenzy—I also like the White Sox. As Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating spreads across the country, I take an interest in teams which are in our franchise areas. So I guess it’s safe to say that I’m also rooting for the Royals now, and the Twins, the Tigers, the Diamondbacks, and the Cardinals. Probably won’t be that long before I’m a fan of every team in the country. Who knows? Maybe Canada too.

Speaking of the country, our Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating Home Delivery program already ships meals virtually everywhere in the United States. My daughter, Paula, who lives in Dallas, takes Home Delivery orders by phone. So does Terri, who lives in California, and is married to my son, Peter. Terri’s like a daughter to me too, so I thought I’d make sure to mention that in today’s blog.
Anyway, back to Paula. She’s been making sure our meals get to a customer I’ll call William. Not his real name. He lives in Dallas and was hurt badly in a motorcycle accident. William has been ordering from us for a long time. When the shipping company delivered his meals to the apartment complex office instead of his home, Paula drove there, picked up the meals from the office, and delivered them to his door. I’m so proud of her! This is just the way she always is! That’s the spirit of Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating.
Paula said the drive took a little time, but the grateful hug she received from William made it more than worthwhile.

Guess what? One of our Home Delivery customers has Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating delivered to her yacht. Isn’t that the life? So far we have shipped meals to Newport, Rhode Island, and Nantucket, Maine.
Sailing the ocean main and eating healthy, delicious meals that have been planned, shopped, prepared, and shipped. Goodness! The whole family is on the cruise—parents, siblings, cousins, et al.

Soon I’ll have more info on the highly suspect study paid for by the Atkins Foundation and recently released. Thanks to April Stevens for doing some excellent research. I’ll explain in a blog next week.
She made healthy eating her mission in life long before anyone else did, in hopes of helping her own obese father. A registered nurse by training and entrepreneur at heart, she lives, eats and breathes everything about healthy eating and helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health. She enjoys never having to bother with grocery shopping, cooking and counting calories. Her favorite SSHE meal, although it’s hard to pick just one, is the Potato Gnocchi with Basil Pesto Sauce.
