1. I'm eating too fast. I gobble my food right in. New habit starting right this minute: slow down & actually TASTE the food. Feel the textures in my mouth before swallowing. Clean out my mouth before taking the next bite.
2. Every time I weigh myself I think of this guy. He does this thing where he taps the scale 3 times before stepping on. I have a special spot that I move my scale to. It's in the middle of one of the designs on my bathroom floor. If it's not balanced exactly in the middle then I feel like I'm not getting the right reading.
3. I bounced this morning for 20 mins & then put in dvd #2 that I got for free at the Salvation Army. Turns out it's part of a set & I need exercise bands to go with the dvd. I'll keep my eye open since I'm at various thrift stores every week. (I own a vintage clothing store.)
4. This is the light fixture in my store. Every day I just stare at it. It's 89 hand blown pieces of glass. No, not a Chihuly. It's our Chihuly knock-off.
Millet! Millet! Millet!
As I said earlier this week I am eliminating my dependancy on brown & wild rice.
Millet is an amazing grain. Rather than fill up my blog with millet info you can go here and read all about it.
I love the flavor. It's sweet and very easy to cook.
Basic directions: 1 c millet to 4 c water. Bring to a boil & let simmer until water is absorbed. (About 30 mins.)
This morning I added a handful of almonds to the millet pot. After cooking I added coconut butter, salt, pepper and nutritional yeast. I scrambled up 2 eggs but it was more than enough b'fast without the eggs.
Be prepared for millet recipes the rest of the week!
