The universe has undeniably told me today that it is unacceptable to be the cheapskate that I’ve been, regardless of my financial status at the moment (been a mostly unemployed student all year…). If you read my blog ever, you know that I swim. A lot. Like nearly every day. Okay, so I also live in Southern California. The pool’s outside. With chlorine. And lots of sunshine.
Any idea where I’m going with this?
My one piece suit is getting holes in it from overuse and overexposure. So I wore my two piece (trainer, not a bikini!) underneath trying to eek out a few extra swims without having to purchase a new suit. That didn’t work out so well today b/c the little holes in my butt turned into a gigantic tear (thankfully the two piece bottom was there so my bottom wasn’t!). I decided, what the hey…I’ll bare my big white tummy to the world and finish the last hour of my set in the two piece. Except that the top’s too big…so the friction of swimming sets my bosom’s dangerously close to the outside of the swimsuit!!
Dog’gonnit…clearly this means that I need to go bathing suit shopping this evening if I want to be in the liquid tomorrow. Drat…
What does this have to do with the BTD? Nothing…I just needed to vent a little!!
There’s not much news on the BTD front…I’ve remained compliant and bought more Superfood (Dr. Shulze) this weekend and feel like a superhero again. I thought that I’d double my money and get some tuna steaks on the way home tonight. I promised a recipe a while back, so here’s one from dinner yesterday. Totally AB compliant and very yummy! Hope you try it! It’s quick and easy…
Stir Fry over Rice Noodles
(You can use any compliant veggies you like…these are what I picked…the colors are extraordinary!)
Asian Eggplant, Snow Peas, Yellow Squash, Mexican Squash, Red Cabbage, Onion, Garlic, Olive Oil, Vegetarian stir-fry sauce, Veg. Hoisin sauce, Veg. Soy Sauce, Veg. Bullion, Hot Sauce, Rice Noodles
Start with the olive oil and a hot pan. Add onions and garlic. Sauté. Add eggplant, then squash. Sauté. Add cabbage and peas. While sautéing, mix bullion with some hot water to “melt.” Through in pan, add bits to taste of the other sauces. As this is cooking, boil water for noodles. When all is done, enjoy stir-fry over noodles! The liquid from cooking is plenty for flavor…if you need more, use soy sauce and hot sauce to taste.
Compliant eating and be well…
