You know what Wednesdays are! No lifting today, so John and I just headed out on the trail to downtown. It was much earlier than normal since we just got up an went.
The decaf here is so much better!
Plus my nummy bagel. I know food shouldn’t make you happy, but it does for me sometimes 😀
Day 2 of decaf is going well. I am not nearly as tired today, and still no headache, which is shocking.
Singularly frustrating day with work today. The AS team was messing around with the software, which causes glitches that end up interfering with productivity. Lower productivity = lower pay. Argh! One of the large downsides to working on production. I can earn varying amounts in an 8-hour day depending on the quality of the dictator or software glitches.
Tried a different thing with my wrap today. I made my usual tuna and hummus wrap, but added cucumber to it.
It definitely was different. I really noticed how sweet the cucumber was, which I had never really thought about before. Still working on this box of clementines, too!
For dinner I made another egg sandwich, but no broccoli tonight! LOL! I did a variation on Alton Brown’s brussel sprouts recipe.
I shredded it and pan sauteed it with some coconut oil, salt and pepper, and topped with dried cranberries. Really good! Even John liked it. I think the texture of this is the most appealing, as well as the sweet/salty with the dried cranberries. I actually think I must enjoy the cabbage family most, as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts are some of my favorite veggies. How weird. You would think that someone who didn’t like vegetables much would like a different family of them! Brussel sprouts were a food I never in a million years thought I would eat, let alone really like 😀 Thanks to my commitment to the Great Veggie Experiment, I have added some things to my repetoire.
Another good reason to eat from the cabbage family? Studies have shown that the phytochemicals in them can possibly help prevent some forms of cancer!
Question: Have you ever tried brussel sprouts?
