If you visited Greens & Berries in September or October, today you may have noticed the site has a new theme and header photo. I'm experimenting with font, colour and layout to find the most readable, attractive format, and also keep frequent readers (and myself) from getting bored.* I love food photography and am thrilled so many talented photographers allow their work to be used under Creative Commons licenses. This month for the main page I've selected a photo of my favourite November comfort food: soup. Not only did I find an outstanding image, but also discovered this blog for vegans, this delicious recipe, and an interesting, new-to-me food: cranberry beans.
When it comes to reading (and blogging), I'm impatient and just want to get on with it, but I know I benefit from goals and plans to keep me on track. In yesterday's post, Leo at Zen Habits recommended Haiku Productivity: to achieve completion, limit yourself to three projects. I don't feel overwhelmed by this number. So for November, I'm going to focus my literature-searching, reading and blog-writing on:
- Highlights, summaries, recommendations and resources from Keeping Current 2007.
- References and resources that support the recommendations from the "diet and cancer report."
- My inventory of neurosurgical nutrition resources. (I've been focusing on stroke during the past several months).
I have the same goal for each project: to translate knowledge into practice; e.g., make recommendations--perhaps develop protocols-- on using probiotics in enterally fed patients; answer questions about "what to eat to be healthy", and evaluate and where needed, revise our unit's enteral feeding protocols to mimize the risk of aspiration.
I do very much like this Haiku Productivity approach. Be sure to check out the entire post for details on implementing it.
*And don't worry about getting lost. Even though I may change the "packaging" seasonally or monthly, the content and navigation will remain the same.
