Kung Fu

Balance stems from so many sources that keeping it all centered requires a lot of will and concentration. The Kung Fu Body project guided me to built my muscles on a more equal level than they typically are, distributing weight evenly on each leg and throughout each fingertip.

Preparing food was also a highlight while engaged in the project. I am more likely to create yummy dishes while I am training then when I am not training. I believe this is because I am more aware of my mind and body, desiring to create on my plate at the same time I am creating inside.

I hope everyone has a beautiful fall.

Move to Austin and Travels, Complete!

Sort of..Moved into a temporary house in Austin a few days ago. I am back in the heat and loving it. Too hot to go outside in the August heatwave? Go to a meditation class and then to an hour and a half yoga class. Then, stay inside, read, and eat watermelon! When the sun starts to set, go to the bridge and watch thousands of bats emerge from the pillar feasting on the bugs that humans and plants attract. Then play.

Also, eat kick-high salads such as this crazy one:

Lots of greens (spinach, mixed springs)
Raw summer corn off the cob (carb allotment)
1/2 small turnip, sliced
1/4 diced avocado
1/3 cucumber, quartered
Pinch of pecan pieces
Pinch of gorgonzola cheese
PInch of diced cranberries

Blend a tbsp of cashews to get a butter consistency, add lemon juice, ground pepper and some thyme.

I am testing PCP biscuits in the oven right now. I have a feeling the results are going to be pretty hilarious.

Day 56

Fresh grains for breakfast, expanded version

Quinoa and milk

Boil 1 1/2 cups water, add 3/4 cup quinoa (or any 2:1 ratio). Cover the pan. Lower heat to simmer. Cook for 10 minutes. Take off of the stove and crack the lid to the pan. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Fluff up with a fork.

I keep the quinoa in the refrigerator and weigh out the portions in the morning. It will last a few mornings.

.Quinoa and milk. It's fresh cereal.

....thats my fave

You can also add a drop of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon

Or try is with barley, spelt, rye...

to cook those just add water to an inch above the grains and boil, drain the water like pasta.

Or use yogurt instead of milk.
