I do have to say, it’s been non-stop eats of the whole non-processed variety! Mostly gluten-free too (I have RA, and gluten makes it worse, so I try to avoid whenever possible). I’m trying to be better about that!
Many of the dishes come from The Happy Herbivore, so I can’t take credit for the creation – just the eating! As much as I like to design a great dish, I’m finding the demands on my time just don’t allow that as much as I’d like – and then I end up either skipping meals, or diving into wine, hummus, and crackers as an excuse for a meal. So, largely letting someone else plan the dish, and all I have to do is cook and eat!
Of course, still dig my smoothies!
And some quick miscellaneous eats too!
I pulled a muscle in my neck/shoulder, so I took it easy for a few days. Once it felt mostly better, I added in some gentle yoga. Eventually, it was back out for runs in the neighborhood!
It’s been a pretty typical week, with an added level of stress due to exams. I have one more that I hope to have mostly done today. This one is a paper vs a sit-down timed exam. But due Saturday, and I’d like to just get it over with! That means Sunday marks the beginning of my last term before graduation in May!!! And yes – I’m counting down the time.
Lot’s going on at work and on the professional front as well!
The weekend was really chill – mostly just me an R hanging out. M worked and D was out having a spa evening on Friday, at a piano bar working on his book on Saturday, and doing all the grocery shopping and errand running on Sunday so I could focus on school stuff.
When R does her peanut flour dose, she has to be totally chill for 2 hours. She can’t do anything that could elevate her heart rate because that can trigger a reaction. Her chill of choice is to binge watch Hell’s Kitchen, so that’s what we do! She totally loves Gordon Ramsey and her goal is to travel and eat at one of his restaurants.
I have the day off today because D has a colonoscopy this afternoon and I’m his designated driver. Most readers know he has Crohn’s Disease, and this is just a check-up to see how he’s doing. He has no symptoms of a flare or anything (which is fantastic), but it’s important to monitor every few years.
So, it’s time for me to get back to my paper before heading out to take D to his appointment!
