Travis and I went to three sales today. We didn't buy much, but it was fun. I found some pillowcases and some mugs I liked at an estate sale. Total cost: $5.75!
Lunch Smoothies for 2: 2 bananas, 1/4 pineapple, 1 kiwi, spinach, radish microgreens, 1/2 cup almond yogurt, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, frozen strawberry banana mix, leftover Bengal Spice Tea, 1 can of coconut water, and water to 3/4 line of blender carafe.
Snacks for 2: 4 oranges and radish microgreens.
Keeping the promises I made to myself: practiced my flute and walked my steps.
I made goodie balls this afternoon.
For dinner I made a salad of spring mix, coleslaw, tomatoes from our garden, and purple onion. Served with Braggs vinaigrette dressing and pickled veggies.
The cooked dish tonight was Vegetarian lo mein from the PlateJoy app with a few modifications. Vegetarian lo mein recipe:
Cook 9 oz spaghetti per the package directions. Chop 6 cups broccoli (I used a package of frozen broccoli), 1-1/2 red bell peppers chopped, 3/4 red onion chopped, 1 small package snow peas trimmed. In a wok or skillet heat 2 Tbsp sesame oil. Cook the vegetables for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. In a bowl, mix together 3 Tbsp soy sauce, 1-1/2 tsp minced garlic, and 1-1/2 tsp minced ginger. Add soy sauce mixture and the noodles to the pan. Toss to coat and cook for another 2-3 minutes to warm the noodles. Top with sliced green onions to serve.
Also had kombucha made by my friend Bonita. She makes the best kombucha.
The sprouts and microgreens are doing well. I started a flat of broccoli microgreens today.
Evening tea: Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion
We watched the news on PBS Newshour. There was an interesting piece about a couple in Columbus, Ohio that are both paleoclimatologists with Ohio State University. They collect ice cores from glaciers all over the world that are kept frozen at The Ohio State University's Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center. Many glaciers are disappearing right before our eyes and these ice samples are all that is left from which researchers can study the records of the gaseous composition of the atmosphere.
