OK, today I have enjoyed a leisurely stroll down Hennepin Ave. uptown before I have to return to fast-paced corporate America pharmacy world.
I begin my journey at Sidney's for breakfast. Starting out with a tall glass of pineapple juice, I next had the "West Hollywood Scramble" or something like that. It contained saffron'd rice, chevre, red onion, egg whites, wild mushrooms, and what not, on a bed of greens.
It was nothing to write home about though I'm sure it was good for me, probably one of the only blood-type compliant foods on the menu. Strolled down to Tao Foods. Oh, that place cracks me up because I could spend hours there. Heck, I could buy the whole store! I bought a book on clearance there. And there, among the D'Adamo blood type books, I spotted two other blood type books NOT written by D'Adamo!!!!!
I mean, wow, I had NO CLUE that anyone else was inspired by/expanded on his work in a layperson book-type publication! I think that's great in a way that others are inspired enough to write about it and spread their knowledge to others, especially since they make it clear that it is not endorsed by him, in order to separate any differences between authors. One set of authors combines the blood-type diet with the food-combining diet. I really didn't read into it, but it looked like it was a very basic format. Of course, neither source in their finite number of pages could possibly contain the technical knowledge that the D'Adamo's books contain, but it was still refreshing to see these books.
My last stop is Sebastian Joe's ice cream. But not for ice cream. For coffee and internet access. I ordered the Cafe Ricki w/soy milk, minus the whipped cream. It also contains chocolate, a pinch of cayenne and a cinnamon stick so it's muy delicioso!!! But as I began to sip it and monkey with the iMac, the nice lady at the counter who made it came up and said, "you know, I think I forgot to add the espresso!" Suddenly, it dawned on me, too! Once added, I realized, yes, something was missing. We had a good laugh. And now here I am. Full of caffeine, ready for the power work week. The end.
