Still in cool morning weather mode. It was in the 50s when we got up this morning to bike to breakfast, so that meant pants and a jacket! It was sunny though. Here is the temp when we arrived to breakfast.
True Adirondack day with cold morning and warming up to about 80 in the afternoon.
I had my delicious bagel. I honestly don’t think I could ever go grain-free forever. And I really don’t want to. I actually eat much less wheat than I used to and I definitely notice a difference when I don’t eat it, but I enjoy all aspects of food. I am just not so regimented that I could deny myself of any one type of food forever (except mushrooms and olives – I will gladly never eat those).
Maybe part of that comes from not viewing any food as inherently good or bad. Certainly there are foods that are a better choice nutritionally than others, but a slice of chocolate cake in and of itself isn’t bad. Food doesn’t have morality – it just is. Once you put food in those categories, how do you feel about yourself if you eat a ‘bad’ food? My guess is bad. Then why bother eating it if it going to make you feel bad about yourself? That’s how you get stuck in that diet mentality trap or the all-or-nothing trap.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed that little side train there. 😀
My lunch: Greek yogurt with blueberries and shredded
gluten wheat with some honey.
Tasty. I don’t regard the lunch as any different than breakfast, either. Nutritionally different, yes, but not as far as whether or not I should be eating either one.
Another thing I look forward to?
John made my latte today and it is extra fluffy. He has the magic touch. This picture makes my hair look really short, but I am growing out the layers and they are tucked behind my ears.
At the end of the day, we thought about biking to the Wednesday Take A Bite. It runs through the end of the month. Then we just decided to walk up the street to pick up some Chinese food for dinner. I do like Chinese food, but I get sodium bloat for days normally. Solution? Steamed broccoli and shrimp!
This order comes with 12 really large shrimp. I had 6 in this bowl (probably 4 ounces of shrimp). I don’t know how they season them before steaming, but they are tasty. I actually think they might be breaded shrimp that goes into the steamer and whatever seasoning is on the breading stays on the shrimp. Whatever it is, I love it! I went back for seconds on the broccoli. I have enough of my dish leftover for a meal tomorrow, too. Plus there is enough rice to feed all of upstate New York. I had to measure out 1/2 cup of rice or I would just plop a huge amount in a bowl with a little butter and salt and go to town 😀
We watched the Tour of Colorado on TV
Then I had my fortune cookie.
Funny thing? John got the same fortune!
