Today was a whirlwind of beer brewing in our garage. Two of Matt’s coworkers came over and they brewed for over 6 hours! I was a patient wife despite the door to the kitchen opening 100 times and bringing gusts of freezing cold air onto my already freezing body. And the garage and kitchen got quite messy, but he is working on them now, so I’m just sitting tight.
Shortly after my breakfast post we went for a really nice run. About 5-6 miles of chitter chatter about life. We both agreed we had good runs – swift and not too tiring. When we returned we immediately hopped on our bikes and rode to Harris Teeter for a round of groceries.
I didn’t get hungry for lunch until 1:30 – it was a filling breakfast. I decided to make a sandwich on the Rosemary Garlic bread. This was 2 slices of turkey, 1 laughing cow, mustard and lettuce.
On the side I had a TJ’s Euro yogurt with blackberries, strawberries and walnuts
And some pickles!
And lastly, the Barbecue Popchips . Loved this flavor!! I’m not a huge fan of barbecue flavor in general, but I enjoyed eating these.
I spent the afternoon doing 4 hours of leptin research . Gosh this stuff is hard. Not only do I know nothing about biochemistry yet, but I’m trying to navigate the research of these professional scientists and their language. I made some progress though.
I paused around 4:30 to honor my hunger with this lovely bowl of mixed cereals in hot soy milk –
And enjoyed a tiny glass of mead that Matt’s boss brought over to join the brewing fun –
I spoiled my dinner appetite with my cereal, but was hungry enough by 7:30 to enjoy two slices of this pizza! Unfortunately this is my next Mushroom Channel recipe , so you’ll have to wait until early April to get the details, but you can learn everything you want about the best whole wheat pizza crust we’ve ever made over at Brew & Bake !
I’ve got another slice in my lunch for tomorrow!!
Thank you all for your kind comments on the Intuitive Eating post. I’m glad so many of you find the book interesting.
I had hoped to work on Biochem some more, but it looks like I just have time for an episode of The Office before I hit the hay. I’m tired today from not sleeping long enough last night, so I’m excited to get in bed early. I’ve got an early morning tomorrow too!
