We had one semi-warm day in Boston this week. Otherwise, it’s been freezing out here. This weather is kind of tough and I’m trying to find ways to bring some sunshine into my life. Alas, one quick trip to the supermarket and I purchased a large bag (ok – so it was a ten pound bag) of Florida navel oranges.
This was a three fold purchase – it gave me a change to get some flavorful oranges and bring a bit of Florida sunshine into my life, is providing me with Vitamin C, AND the orange peels are sitting on my stove emitting a very citrusy aroma into the air. Triple Crown win for oranges in the Winter!
Hello Friends! I’ve been away from technology for a few weeks, relaxing in the last few days of the Summer. Not being in work for a few weeks presented a lot of challenges in the form of BBQs, beaches, and social gatherings. I have returned to my normal work schedule and really welcomed the return to a pattern.
A few notes –
My breakfast has been consisting of a cup and a half of edamame. I boil them the night before (or in the morning, depending on my schedule) and eat them during the drive to work. If you’re ever looking for me in the morning, just follow the edamame shells through Boston!
Lunch is still a steady meal of organic spinach with kidney beans, pumpkin seeds, carrots, red onions, bell peppers, and an olive oil and turmeric dressing. I leave raw almonds in my office and also bring some fruit and organic peanut butter with me to work. This has really worked for me and is such a big difference from eating out every single day.
Dinner has proven to be challenging, however. I’m still trying to find a balance with dinner. Luckily, with the cooler weather arriving, soup may become the dinner staple. I like a food routine and having the same thing each night is a welcome pattern for me. I have some great recipes for chili and soups shared by my friends from Kripalu and I am on my way to my favorite three grocery stores – Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Hannaford’s Market – to go grocery shopping!
