I’ve been on a restricted food plan going on two years that restricts food containing lectins. It works; I’ve lost 60-70 lbs. Right now I’ve hit a plateau and have been at the same weight, plus or minutes five pounds, for several weeks.
Maybe once or twice a month I go off the food plan, and this morning’s Sunday brunch with friends and my sister was one of those times.
The restaurant is family owned with three or even four generations working. The “bus boy” this morning looked to be about ten. Nothing fancy about the place, just good food at reasonable prices that is always busy.
Greeley, CO is transitioning from a primary agriculture town to a diverse city. My sister credits people re-investing profits from selling property to re-purposing existing buildings instead of taking their money elsewhere.
The city is still agriculture orientated but much of row crops are being processed elsewhere. Petroleum is a dominate industry but other businesses are growing. An example is Burris, maker of high end firearms optics.
Union Pacific rail is big in the area with a large switching yard just a few miles South across the South Platte River. A small railroad stays in business moving cars from the BNSF routes through Ft Collins a few miles to the West to the UP.
Greeley is the county seat of Weld County, the reddest county in the blue/purple state of Colorado. It is a decent place to live, well run, a good police department and a fairly low crime rate. Too bad we are part of the Emperor Polis’ cluster of Boulder and mountain resort towns trust fund snots.
