In the last 48 hours, I’ve continued my veggie bliss—I know, it’s summer and I should be eating raw veggies and salads. But for some reason I just want them cooked. So I’m going with it!
My conclusion from that dinner? I love cooked veggies, and I don’t love Runner’s World. Maybe I’m just jealous because I can’t run. I did, however, have an MRI done recently and there is nothing torn or needing surgery in my knee. I have mild degeneration of my posterior horn of the medial meniscus and minimal effusion surrounding a prominent medial plica. Funny thing, my knee doesn’t hurt at all on that side—it’s the lateral side that feels like someone is stabbing my knee with a fork when I run and put certain types of torque on it (batakonasana or warrior II……or, butterfly pose and lunge to the side). Regardless, I won’t be going to the orthopedic specialist because I’m not spending any more co-pays on this when they’ve told me there’s nothing wrong. It hurts—something is wrong. Oh well! At least it still works, and all I can’t do is run.
Back on track…
I’ve also redeemed myself in the cooking department as far as Joe is concerned. He likes to eat very early and he’s pretty particular about what he eats—in other words, he fends for himself most of the time and by the time I get home from work he’s already eaten. There also was that incident with the cornbread last year, but I can’t help it if he only chooses to remember the mistakes! A couple days ago, I told him I’d make stir fried veggies—he said he likes them and I was really wanting some cooked veggies. I forgot to take pics of the whole thing, but I did the broccoli separately (he only likes broccoli if it’s really overcooked and soft—fine with me) and also the chard. I then included mushrooms, asparagus, and green beans. My seasonings—yes, just the same old kelp, dulse, Herbamere, and turmeric. Why? It works. I have a thyroid issue (and the sea veggies help that), and turmeric is a superfood. I also used Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (because it tastes fabulous and it also helps regulate the thyroid).
I swear I’m going to have a few raw veggies this week. But right now, I just don’t want them.
