I'm also finding ways to stay busy in the kitchen. Since we financed our first car the family budget has gotten pretty tight, so I am trying to cook instead of eating out or buying packaged foods. That's a good move anyway, considering my eating goals including whole foods little to no additives/preservatives or sugar.
Today's kitchen interlude included chocolate-chocolate-chip-almond cookies (did you know Whole Foods sells bulk sprouted almonds?) I used organic panela. These are for my son who is lamenting the fact that he is losing muscle mass. He is 6'4", with <11% body fat and hits the gym a lot, but does not eat enough calories every day. Hopefully these will help him keep his BMR fueled up.
I also made my own version of Kimchi, which will sit for a few days and become a tangy, spicy probiotic side dish/condiment.
Finally my sourdough adventures continue on. These loaves did not rise too much as I had them in the fridge overnight and into the oven early. I think they needed to come up to room temperature in order to have a decent oven spring. I purchased spelt and hard red wheat in bulk at Whole Foods Market and ground it up in my coffee grinder to make my own flour. I told the boys if these taste like hockey pucks we are not going to waste them...it's not everyday I make my own flour, you know! It's never my intention to make anything taste bad, obviously, but my sourdough bread making is often hit-or-miss. These loaves smell amazing and I can tell the consistency is soft.
There's a great beauty product I've also been using for about two months now (and it is so concentrated the bottle feels like it is still brand new.) I use a tiny dot on my ring finger, which is then spread onto my other ring finger tip and gently applied to the skin under and around my eyes. This wonderful cream is from Shiseido and called Bio Performance Super Corrective Eye Cream. I am not one to be a slave to anti-aging products, or even high-end skin care. The spas do not see me for facials nor do I have a beauty regimen that takes hours to complete. Yet this is one product that has me convinced that some skin care creams are worth my attention, and investment. Fine lines around my eyes have all but vanished! I never had dark circles, but it is supposed to improve those as well. I find my skin feels supple, soft and smooth. I realize the clock can not be reversed and getting older is natural, I am just trying to look my best and this product is a gem. Try it for yourself:
At the office I am involved in a new project that keeps me on my toes. I've moved from a Brooklyn location back to Manhattan and that in and of itself is a welcome change. I get to walk from the train that brings me in from NJ about 10 blocks up to my office near Grand Central. This adds 30 minutes a day of power walking to my fitness routine. As far as the work itself is concerned, the beginning project stage is often the busiest for my role so the days are passing quickly. I find myself exhausted and the weekends bring a welcome respite from meetings, paperwork and phone calls.
Coming up: Our family hopes to get away for at least a day trip next weekend to the Jersey Shore. Memorial Day 2013 is sure to be a blast!
