Today is my birthday. I am 29 with 17 years experience.
Came downstairs to some fresh lilacs and a friendly face.
Started the morning with tea in the porch. It was cold outside (upper 40′s) but at least the sun was shining. We had LOTS of gloom and rain this past week, so Happy Birthday to me.
It didn’t take long to gain some company…
Sent my boys off to work and school, had lunch with some friends and took the day off from housework. All in all, a pretty good day, with the exception of dinner…but that’s another post.
Holy Moly, did we get some RAIN last night and today!! Complete with Flash Flood and Tornado watches. Rainy days are the perfect opportunity to spend time in the kitchen.
Beef bone broth, mushrooms & onions with banana bread baking in the oven and a tray of “Caveman Crack” chillin’ in the fridge.
The SexyBack Summit hosted by Underground Wellness begins today.
The timing is perfect. There is a huge focus on balancing hormones, and right now mine are a mess. My HCG levels were still elevated as of a few weeks ago, impeding my recovery. I so want to get back to the old pre-pregnancy me!
Sign up and get ready to learn LOTS!
Yeah, I did it!
Recently completed the Certificate for Duke University’s Behavioral Economics class with Professor Dan Ariely. Excellent material. Highly relevant to my profession and useful in daily life. I strongly recommend it if offered in the future!
So, veggie “noodles” have been all the rage in the Paleoshphere, especially the spiral-cut ones. Thought I’d be a little adventurous and try zucchini noodles in our chicken korma.
They were a hit – now we understand what all the fuss is about! I didn’t want to make an investment in another kitchen
contraption tool in the event the final product didn’t live up to its reputation, so I got a manual julienne peeler to do the work. It was speedy, effective, and easy to clean (dishwasher!) and cut lovely little zoodles perfect for side dishes or stir fry.
I should have hopped on this trend sooner!
My Hero: Tara Grant!
For those who have read my story, you know that it was Tara Grant’s story in the Primal Blueprint that inspired me to give Paleo a go. I was so excited to meet her in real life at the Minneapolis Primal Blueprint seminar.
Tara was kind enough to pose for a picture with me, so of course I have to post it!
[I see now that I should have checked my teeth for stray lipstick! Oh well, whatcha gonna do?! LOL]
