I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

my perfect omelette obsession!

… I’ve had it for years. It’s an ongoing, anal thing of mine, lol! Starts w/ the best ingredients! I’m partial to mushroom and cheese for fillings … cremini, and anything Swiss is my absolute favourite (and fresh thyme from my garden too – sadly, am still weeks away)! AND, don’t compromise; you MUST use the best/freshest eggs you can get! Whole Foods always fits the bill. Here’s my haul y’all!

chicken noodle soup – in a pinch!

… emphasis on noodles! Feeling sick, under the weather, whipped this up without stopping at the grocery store. Had all I needed at home. Those are Hungarian egg noodles (sorry, no pic) from Starsky Fine Foods, they’re thin and short – like needles, when dry, but as you can see, really plump and sop up broth when cooked. Speaking of broth, that’s organic chicken broth I had in the pantry, PLUS I had organic baby kale in the fridge so I tossed that in as well. I like finishing with grated cheese (Romano Lupa), and hot sauce, today I went with good ole Tabasco. A few pics y’all!

healthy lifestylin’

Boy, so much is happening, trying many different things, so much I wanna say about it all, but I know my laziness won’t allow that, lol! First thing I will say is that when I woke-up, I had a lightbulb moment … since we went out and bought protein powder (more Tiff’s thing at the time than mine), and listening to her educate me on protein … decided I was gonna have a protein smoothie/shake BEFORE my run … prior to that, I woke up had a glass of water, a cup of joe and was out the door, on my way (I know, how fucking retarded, eh, lol?), and it musta worked, came home 8K later in a record 39 minutes … 39:00 EXACTLY … so I was happy about that, but not only that, spent lots of time learning more about protein powders (so much out there folks, it’ll make your head spin), and quickly joined the mindset of those who eschew powders (with ingredients you can’t pronounce), and instead prefer raw hemp seeds as an alternative … I LOVE that thought, all natural (organic too), and ONLY one ingredient, AND I know my Vitamix will pulverize the shit outta it when making smoothies – so excited for tomorrow’s run, lol … AND, Tiff  on her Harley-health-kick, had me buy edamame (dry roasted, for snacks) as well … like I said, trying new shit … lol, had to laugh as I was putting it into my basket, no fucking way she’s wasabi-ing it … them’s for me, LOL!!

Pyramid Farm and Ferments

… been reading about this place lately …specifically lacto-fermentation and its benefits. I’ve been changing my habits recently trying to incorporate healthier living alternatives … it’s not like I adhere to any one’s principals or beliefs, and you can’t go wrong with good quality foods, this I know. Wanted to go the Junction Farmers Market last week, but spent the day strolling up and down the Danforth feasting on food on sticks ‘nstead, lol!! Couldn’t have picked a better day … picked up a few other things from various vendors (peaches, spelt cookies – sorry, no pics) as well, but really went for Pyramid’s raw sauerkraut – no vinegar, no sugar, no traditional canning … live and cultured food.

Come early, stuff sells fast …

Very small and quaint, maybe 15 vendors …

My new friend Alex at his stand …

Kimchi, and Sauerruben along with the Spring Sauerkraut … Pesto too …

And I snagged this basket of heirlooms (Alex mentioned they have over 50 varieties) …
