This is going to be a short one. I have A LOT of feelings about what is going on in the United States and the world right now, it is very scary and disheartening. I usually lean away from discussing politics on the internets but I feel that since I’m writing more openly now, it’s important that I express my thoughts. I am working on a post that I will share with you next week. Then, I am going to take a break from writing while I’m on vacation through early September.
In the mean time… That meal plan I talked about earlier in the week, yeah, I never wrote it. My mind has been occupied with other things. Here is one recipe I tried that turned out great!
I started with this Paleo Veggie Mushroom Burger Recipe from Lexi’s Kitchen. I was all set to follow the recipe exactly until I pulled out my mushrooms and they were slimy.
Instead of mushrooms I cooked up some broccoli and cauliflower to replace the mushrooms. I nixed the red pepper flakes and added turmeric. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
The sweet potato helped bind the patties so they did not fall apart like a lot of veggie burgers do, and the flavor of the sweet potato and walnut really came through.
I ate the patties with spinach, sauerkraut, avocado and my fave toppings – Paleo mayo and Cholula. Super yum.
A few other quick things.
I had a really good 7 mi pace run on Wednesday.
Jim saw a BLACK WIDOW in our back yard yesterday. Eeek.
Brand New released a new album, Science Fiction. Still emo. (Yes they are)
I watched What the Health, one of the newer food documentaries on Netflix, and though they make some valid points about the food industry it is pure propaganda. Get your information elsewhere.
Finally, have a great weekend! Do something to promote positivity, the world needs it right now.
