A Lot of Legumes
I made it! Thank God.
Yesterday was a long day. Let’s not talk about the six hour flight, one hour wait for the bus, two hour bus ride and fifteen minute cab ride. No, let’s talk about how despite my exhaustion and comatose-like state, somehow around 8:30 (felt like 11:30) I had a second wind and found myself in my kitchen, in pajamas and slippers, cooking lentils on the stove.
The lentils. They call to me.
I mentioned last week that I was given the challenge of coming up with seven lentil, chickpea or pea recipes by June 15th. That’s a lot of legumes, folks. It might get ugly. But it’s not in my nature to turn down a challenge….especially a challenge in the kitchen.
And so, there I stood, almost cackling into my simmering pot of green lentils last night. You’ll see the finished creation at lunch….I hope it’s good!
As for right now, just a chocolate berry smoothie with banana, frozen berries, almond milk, chocolate protein, maca
and peanut butter.
I’m having a little issue this morning. You see, I feel fine but one side of my throat was really aching (odd, I know) so I looked down my throat with a flashlight just now and saw that my left tonsil has literally swelled up to the size of a golf ball and is covered with white patches. This does not seem like a positive thing. I don’t feel like I have the flu or anything but it’s sort of freaking me out. Thoughts?
