It’s that harvest time of year. Simple, lo-cal treats can be found by grilling or broiling many fruits and vegetables that come our way. You can cook them on the grill or broil them in the oven. I put mine, sliced, on top of some tinfoil in a pie plate, since they get juicy.

Grilled/Broiled Tomatoes

Plum tomatoes are especially good, but you can use any. Just slice the tomatoes thinly, spread on the tin foil which has been sprayed with a little canola oil (you can skip this if sticking is not a problem), and sprinkle with a little good Parmesan cheese. Got any fresh or dried favorite herbs (parsley, oregano, summer savory, etc.)? Sprinkle some of those on, too. Place over medium coals or indirect heat of center burner turned off, outside burners on medium high in a gas grill. 10 minutes or so, until the cheese is lightly browned.

Prepare the same but place about four inches down under the broiler on High in the oven and watch closely.

Grilled/Broiled Plums, Peaches, Nectarines

Proceed just the same! A little herbs and parmesan make these fruits into a savory treat. For  a sweet dessert, grill or broil until browning and carmelizing, then remove from heat and douse with a little amaretto or other liquor or a little light whipped cream.

Intuitive Eating

Intuitive Eating is a movement toward learning to pay attention to your own inner signals as to what you want to eat and when you want to eat and how much you want to eat. Google “Intuitive Eating” and you’ll find references to the book of the same name and to online support groups.

Our Intuitive Focusing self-help skill provides a way into this intuitive, bodily-knowing. 

The broader purpose of Creative Edge Focusing (TM) is teaching two simple self-help skills, Intuitive Focusing and Focused Listening, which, like reading and writing, can be integrated into every aspect of work and home life as a kind of “human literacy.” Our website at gives explanations and instructions, free articles, e-newsletter, e-course of practice exercises, and a free yahoo e-support group for actual practice of Focusing and Listening. 

Listening and Focusing are a way to find our own gems inside the places that we experience as “stuck” and “limited”  and to find these gems in others, valuing our intuitions, “gut feelings,” stuckness and depression, negative feelings like jealousy, anger, our creative and spiritual “inklings” and ideas, our co-workers, family, friends, even when they irritate us.

Please forward this e-newsletter to any friends, family, trainees, colleagues who might benefit from either the e-course or CEF News and Goods e-newsletter. This Fall is a great time for newcomers to join. They can subscribe at   and immediately download our Instant “Ahah!”s Mini-Manual. Just hit “Forward” down near your “Send” option, then choose anyone you want from your email address book! Take this small step to help bring Listening/Focusing into the world!
