Hey friends! Meet Brock . . . You’ll get to know him better in the future, but he just wanted to say Hello!
This week’s question was a bit tough for me too. But I would have to go with the first option. Working in a chiropractic office allows me to see the product of the people who take care of themselves naturally and the condition of people that don’t and use drugs and surgeries. I’m not sure I can live authentically knowing that there is better way than pumping people full of dangerous drugs and hacking them up. I also don’t have kids or a husband right now and I do not have anyone relying on my money for support.
What Else? . . .
Speaking of working for a Chiropractor . . . look who got adjusted yesterday? (serious)
While out shopping I found this pretty neat beach towel. It made me laugh & made me appreciate that blogging is very much becoming a real profession!
Caroline gave me some homemade coconut butter and I cant get enough! I really wish I had the top to my food processor so I can make my own because the blender is not cutting it! I must find a way!!
I’ve been a little obsessed with coffee lately. I have had a cup every day and even had 2 yesterday! Good thing they are half-caff!
Last but not least, I am proud to say that operation Meals @ Home has so far been a success . . . even if its only been 48 hours!
Here are some recent eats . . .
Cheeseburger with homemade chili garlic fries (burger from Omaha steaks)
Overnight Oats with sinful coconut butter mentioned above.
Homemade veggie pizza with side salad.
Wrap with tempeh & red pepper sauce with homemade chili garlic fries.
Snackage . . . apple + carrot sticks with sunbutter for dipping.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Quick Note: I was wondering if you guys had any questions you want to post for Would You Rather in the coming weeks. Anything related to health, authentic living, money, blogging etc. would be great! Email me at email@example.com if you got one!
Yesterday’s day off from blogging was much needed! I didn’t want to admit it, but I was kind of starting to feel under the weather by the end of the day. I think I have been sick enough in 2011 for the next 5 years. All is well now though, so lets have a recap shall we?
Tuesday night was all about Grilling. There is a lot more to grilling than just throwing your food on and waiting for the magic to happen. You must worry about temperature, hot spots, cool spots and the different cooking times of each type of food.
We were let loose to work on some marinades and then started to smoke up the kitchen.
We grilled up chicken, shrimp, tempeh, tofu, fruit and vegetables. Made for an awesome late dinner.
Nothing great happened yesterday. I worked and napped on my break and then came home relaxed with some ginger tea and slept some more.
Today was definitely more exciting. Chris took the day off since he is working a double tomorrow so we finally got to spend some time together. It was tough to figure out where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do, but we were able to accomplish 4 things on our list . . .
Eat Breakfast Together
We really didn’t want to spend money on breakfast so I had the idea to go to Starbucks and chip away at my giftcards. I was craving oatmeal early in the morning but by the time we got ready and dressed, I was craving more of a breakfast sandwich type thing which we both got. We also split a cinnamon chip scone.
Well this was kind of hard since today has been the coldest day all week, but we did manage to find a park that we fit into our route called Tatum Park. We walked the trails for about 40min, sat on a bench and took in nature. I haven’t done anything like this in too long. I cant wait for spring. . .
Get Indian Food
Chris and I love to try new cuisines and Indian was the next type on our list. We happened to find a place with a lunch buffet very close to the park! There was a lot of people there taking advantage of the buffet. Everything was excellent and it was fun trying new dishes. Plus, we got to support a local restaurant. We feel better giving our money to places like these instead of places like Applebee’s.
Chris recently decided to support my decision to only buy organic meats for our house. We cant control meats in restaurants or parties or whatever, but when we cook at home, there is no reason to not use the best we can get. He is just as sick about the horrible quality of commercial meats and we are both willing to pay the extra money it takes to feed ourselves good food. Seeing that he finds this important makes me so proud!
That doesn’t mean it didn’t sting a bit . . .
However, we did walk out of there pretty proud of ourselves. Especially since the beef was from a local farm in NJ! Plus, I am confident that I will be able to make the most of this. As Michael Pollan says, meat should be more like a side dish and not the main dish. With this type of quality . . . a little bit goes a long way.
Its funny how food creeps into so many aspects of my life. The good part is that its all so exciting to me and I am glad I am with someone who feels the same passion!
How do you like Indian food? What is your take on buying organic meats? Is it worth it to you?
