So I still think Jeff and I are doing pretty good. We have a lot of cooking to explore, especially with vegetables we’re unfamiliar with. We finally made it to the Farmer’s Market in Irvine last weekend which was great, but it definitely made me realize how much is out and that I have no idea what half of it is. We walked around with Mason and Jasna, bought some fruits and veggies, and the most delicious (and sweet) cake I think I’ve had in a while. I also bought a dozen eggs without realizing that I already had a dozen at home. Oops.
- Our friend Abby gave up coffee, and she was telling me how she feels like she has so much more energy NOW then before. It got Jeff and I thinking on whether we should try the same. We don’t drink the quantity per day that Abby does, but we still heavily rely on our cup of coffee in the morning to get us going. To the point that we WILL get headaches later on if we don’t have it. I’m not sure we’re ready to give it up yet, but at least we’ve started the process of thinking about it :) I’m also trying to at least cut back my creamer and sugar intake in my coffee. That’s a good enough challenge for me, for now.
- This is completely random, but kind of in tandem with the whole coffee thing: I now have toothpaste and a toothbrush in my desk at work, and I’m using it! Hopefully I won’t end up going from one extreme to the other and scrubbing my gums until they bleed like Cate Blanchett’s character in Hanna (that scene gave me the heebie jeebies (thank you to Jeff for correcting my previous ESL spelling of ‘heevie jevies’)).
- I’m currently reading In Defense of Food and it’s been getting me to really think about what we eat and why we eat it. It’s exciting.
