Ride, baby, riddddde.
Matt took me on my first countryside ride this morning, although we didn’t quite make it to the country. I’ve been warming up to riding as a vehicle, and riding here in Cville is SO much better than the fierce drivers in Charlotte.
Just add a big "2"
Before we got countrified, we stopped by the farmer’s market to pick up just a few things..
Local grass fed beef (I hardly think $5 / lb is expensive for such a prized product that will last us 2 meals)
Twin Oaks Herbed Tofu!!! $2.25 is a STEAL for this amazing stuff.
A $2 bunch of collards. Me love.
We dropped off the groceries and then continued our bike ride for a total of about an hour covering about 11 miles. Some of the hills were really touch, but overall, I didn’t feel that tired….until I got off the bike!! My legs were a bit mushy
I made a big salad with spring mix, carrots, cuc, avocado and hummus dressed in this:
A mix of lemon, olive oil, dried Italian herbs, maple syrup, salt and pepper.
Treegan = food made from ingredients exclusively grown on trees. Heh heh!
Also from a sample pack that Rejuvenative Foods sent me a while ago for OpenSky potential, I tried this Sweet Mulberry Treegan Butter made with organic mulberries, pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts.
It was perhaps the weirdest (not in a bad way!) food I’ve ever tried!! It was crunchy, chewy, sweet, salty all at once. Very very interesting. I guess the nuts made it crunchy, the mulberries sweet. It was kind of like a nut butter with extra large chunks!? I really liked it though and just didn’t know WHAT to think about the texture! Reminded me of the mulberries I used to eat off my neighbor’s backyard tree! [FYI, it's $19 for an 8 oz jar so weird = expensive!]
A literal side of toast
Afternoon will be a yo-yo: Yogurt + Yoga!
