Quest For Health
Good Morrow, Peeps,
I was advised to write like no one is reading, and I have the luxury of that being the case, because the only ones reading are my kids, and that’s when I force them too. I’m trying to find my way around a blog, which is absolutely new territory for me, and on the verge of frustrating. Speaking of frustrating, I’m resorting to writing this morning’s blog on my email to post later, I have minutes before I have to leave for my yoga client, and the cat, the 22 pound cat just pooped. My apartment is small, so that needs to be taken care of, pronto.
Gross? Yes, but it’s a good lead in to what I want to talk about. I don’t have the luxury of time to always do things properly, such as the worry about who is going to get to the litterbox first, me, or my dog, Louise.
When I lived in California, I didn’t have more time than now, but healthy, organic veggies were easier to put your hands on. In New York, much of that choice is seasonal and expensive. And once you do get them, you have to wash, cut, and then use before they go bad.
When I get home from work, I want to sit down and have a glass of wine. I don’t want to cook. But I have Cancer, and some other health issues (dammit!) and I need to be eating better. And so do my boys. Don’t fret about the C word, by the way, I consider it a Chronic Condition. Capital “C”.
So I invested in Thrive Market, I ordered the staples, gluten free soy sauce, spices, lentils, beans (dried, the can will kill ya, folks), coconut oil, etc. The plan is to get the discount, healthy organic staples form a discount health store that will deliver, and then get the fresh organic fruits and veggies, and lean organic meats and fish from the local stores.
Last night, made a simple, fresh and easy stir fry with celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage (it was St. Pat’s day after all), Bragg’s, and Bell and Evan’s chicken. That’s the only chicken I trust from the grocery store. Nature’s Promise has a weird gamey taste, although they claim to be organic. There’s more to that company, I want to check it out. Will update later.
So, one night a success, and there was enough left over for lunch today for the boys and I.
Off to bring home the bacon. Or no, the organic kohlrabi. Off to bring home the organic veggies, pricey though they are.
