Hi everyone, thanks for the support and I hope you enjoy the chili. It was really mild (I thought) when I first made it, but it seems to be getting spicier as it sits in the fridge.
I have an awful cough/cold/sore throat thing going on. Last night I skipped dinner because my throat hurt so much I just didn't feel like eating. It's really rare for me not to want to eat, for any reason! Today I still sound terrible but my throat is a lot better. I drank some Throat Coat tea and ate breakfast slowly this morning.
Breakfast (already eaten): steel cut oats with pineapple and mango
Lunch: mung beans and barley with veggies. I made this Indian flavored concoction, which I am calling "Purina Human Chow," by adapting a recipe I found on a fasting web site. Apparently some yoga practitioners recommend doing a Mary's Mini type "cleanse" where you eat rice, mung beans, and veggies at every meal for a month. This version is mung beans, barley, carrots, celery, onion, turnip greens, and various Indian spices I had in my cupboard. I don't think I got the flavors quite to my liking, but I'll keep working on it.
Dinner (assuming I feel like eating): I'll try for brown rice and a green vegetable again. I don't eat enough vegetables.
I have to stay with my turtle energy.
Slow and steady wins the race. -- Letha
