A New Diet

Remember when I was in kidney failure and Miss Elaine and mom worked together to get me back on track and better enough for me to go on with my life?  That was 2 years ago.   Without Miss Elaine's help, I would probably not be here chatting away on my blog today.    She is one of our bestest friends ever and one of the smartest hoomans we will ever meet!
Miss Elaine is helping me out again now that I have cancer.   She suggested to mom that I introduce new foods into my diet. 
Cauliflower~


 And broccoli~
 And coconut oil~
These are good things to fight cancer!
 I ate all of my dindin and I can't wait for breakie!   I love veges - this is good stuff!
 Miss Elaine also said that the pasta must stop and the rice must stop and the treats must stop because they're carbs and cancer thrives on carbs.
But what about our beautiful holiday cake from Sunshade and Jaffa!     Mom says that Mitch will now get much larger pieces than I get.  Bummer!
There's not much left. We've done a good job on it, huh!
 Miss Elaine and mom want to see me reach my 14th birthday and beyond as long as I stay happy and pain-free!  I want that too!
But what about ice cream, mom? 
Have you checked that out yet?

We got a phone call from Miss Fern and Zoie yesterday.  Their computer is sick and at the hospital being repaired. She wanted us to let you all know so that no one would worry about her.  We hear that Zoie had another fun playdate the day after Christmas so we're sure that she will tell you all about that as soon as she can.

So until next time................

Love ya lots,
Maggie

You're such a good girl, Maggie. Cauliflower and broccoli are nutritious and yummy. So glad that you like them very much... I think a little ice-cream brings no harm, either.

Happy New Year to you Maggie and Mitch and your family.

I must tell Willie about this wonderful new veggie diet you are on. Looks yummy to me, too. Pats and pets and Happy New Year!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Maggie we are sending healing purrs. We are glad you likes the cauliflower, broccoli and coconut oil and hopes there are lots of tasty foods you like on the list of foods you can eat.

Sam said...

Hi Maggie, we're very happy that Sunshade's "evil mum" is helping. My dad says that he's never met anyone who has done more for their furry kids than Sunshade's mom. She's researched, probed, questioned and experimented with new and innovative treatments, care regimes as well as incorporating traditional and Chinese medicines and acupuncture into Sunshade's care. And because "E" has acquired a good knowledge base as well as being generous and caring, we're not surprised that she's helping out with Maggie. Thanks "E", we agree with Janice that "you're a good egg". Love, Sam. PS. we're hoping that a little ice-cream is permissible.

Jake of Florida said...

We're so happy you like your new diet, Maggie. We've had collie flowers and brock o'lee on occasion, but with Elaine's advice, we'll have it more frequently.

It's almost 2012, so we're sending you and Mitch and your mom and dad our besy wirey wishes for a Happy New Year!!! We love you guys!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Jill said...

My guys like veggies too. As a matter of fact..that is why my garden now has a fence around it. Asparagus is Zippy's favorite (and mine). So glad you are getting some healing veggies. Sorry about not getting those treats and smaller slices of cake. Maybe you can get some raw asparagus for a treat...Ha!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

NOW... about the Kraut... in Ohio we all think you MUST have Kraut on New Year's Day.. fur good luck.
In California they do Pinto Beans and in the southern states they like Black Eyed Peas... fur good Luck..

BUTT there was a heavy German influence in Ohio.. so maybe that is why WE do the Kraut... with some SORT of PORK in it..

B.T.Bear (esq.) said...

We hope your new diet agrees with you but cake every once in a while is a good treat.

It sucks having cancer, I know because I have had it and beat it! You are so good to try new foods and eat your veggies. I love carbs, but like you said, cancer feeds on carbs and sugar. I will pray that you beat this beast and that you reach your fourteenth birthday!

That is so nice of Ms. Elaine to help you with your diet. Mom wishes Phantom would eat more veggies or any veggies for her. He loves pasta and rice too but Mom tries not to let him have it. But when he has days and days where he won't eat . . . .

We would love o see you have many more wonderful days to come.

Ice cream for all!!!

Sending you wishes for a happy, healthy, peaceful, and love-filled year in 2012.

Woos- Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Berts Blog said...

WEll, we are really behind Miss Maggie, we didn't even know about the C word in your house.

This Miss Ellie sounds pretty cool so we are gonna go over and check out her site.

And tomorrow My Vickie is going to go buy me and her soem cauliflower and brocoli.

She says it is preventative food.
And that she learned it from you.

I hope you feel better Miss Maggie and I can't wait to see what you and Mitch will be up to in 2012

Ina in Alaska said...

Farewell oonies but it is for the best... hello delicious veges and coconut oil. We hope the fresh food will be very very very good for you. We will add these delicious things to our meals too. You are our food guru! Our dogs also LOVE carrots.

Speaking of which today I gave my pups each a slice of Asian Pear. Never tried it before on the dogs but they enjoyed it. Just one slice each because too much would cause loose bowels but they each enjoyed their sliver of Asian Pear. Maybe that would be good for Maggie?

Stay well and we are pulling for you!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

pretty, pretty girl...first off, we are so sad to hear about you having cancer. your friend is right though...certain food are good for fighting cancer. but do be careful as some can cause bad gas and brocolli is one of them...we know...we were sick for days after having at raw broc. maybe it is different cooked...
we wish you all the best in your quest for getting better. we love you!!!!

Veggies are the way to go! We are all hooked on them too, the whole family loves them. We got a big pot made yesterday with cabbage and carrot and blood cleansing turmeric. We have the cooking water for refreshments during the day and the rest with din din :) tuck in!
