Arose at 8:30 today... Sleep was miserable... Despite the bed being the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Chalk it up to my beet red back and shoulders. I am burnt to a crisp. I love Texas. As a tundra dwelling Minnesotan, I suppose I am just not in my element here. It is beautiful though.
Breakfast today was rather simple again. Two organic, cage free, brown eggs. I hard boil them for 6 minutes. Long enough to cook the egg white, but leave the yolk intact. This serves to maintain many of the beneficial properties of eggs, such as the protein, and the omega 3's, 6's, and 9's. Eggs are an excellent source of DHEA, omega fatty acids, and protein. Make sure they are organic though! Huge difference! Seasoned them (the eggs) with dill and parsley. Also had an avocado w/lemon juice, onion powder, and garlic powder. A small glass of hot green tea was brutally mutated by yours truly by adding a half cup of the Food For Life Ezekiel sprouted grains cereal, lemon juice, and a half cup of handpicked blackberries. Yum.
Monkeyed around with the computer for an hour after breakfast. I then decided to further the severity of my sun burn by weeding the vineyard for about two hours. After the weeding, two distant cousins and I went to a place called the Texas Ski Ranch. Pretty cool place. They have a huge man made lake with a massive sky high cable structure going around it entirely. They then pull you around the lake on a wake board at insane speeds... It was an awesome time. I got a killer work out, an even worse sunburn, blood blisters on my hands, and a near concussion after planting my face into the water at 60mph...

Due to the aforementioned activities. I didn't eat again until 5:45... I normally eat about every four hours, so I was shaking like a crack baby by then. Threw 1 1/2 chicken breasts left over from yesterdays dinner into the vita mix blender along with a couple of baby carrots, a big leaf of red chard, three stalks of celery, a medium sized head/crown of broccoli, half a white onion, and a handful of black berries. Baby food. Good. Digestion begins in the mouth by masticating the food and mixing it with saliva. Being this first step wasn't necessary, I swished it in my mouth and fake chewed it before swallowing... Gotta simulate it ya' know? Also had a 1/3 cup of my nut mix. Pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and almonds. Then 1/2 cup of coffee mixed with 3/4 cup of frozen blueberries. It's almost 9 now so I'll call that dinner... maybe a 'lil snack later. Lots of water and green tea throughout the day of course... 'Till next time friends!
