Food is a big part of my life - I studied it, I teach it and, of course, I eat it (sometimes way too much of it). So consider this a weekly share of a salad (or soup or ... something healthy) that I'm loving at the moment - plus the book that currently has me hostage.
Consuming: Jamaican Sorrel and Ginger Tea - one of my favorite teas, ever!!! Sorrel comes from the petals of a species of Hibiscus (according to Wikipedia). We Jamaicans make a drink from it at Christmas time only, but now teabags of it are available of it year round, and I LOVE it. That rich red color tells you one thing - antioxidant power my friends (anthocyanins & ascorbic acid). And yes - I drink tea even in the HOT summers - I just do it only in the early morning when it's usually cool.
Reading: On page 364 of Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. Almost finished and it's fantastic so far. This is book 3 in the series, and it definitely helps to remember/ re-read book 1, Graceling, first (but not necessarily book 2).
Thinking: I'm really enjoying summer so far. It's been HOT but how can I complain when I'm at the lake 4 days a week in July. While the kids do their swim team practice, I read or dip my big toe in the water. And I finally put out a workout playlist on IntheGym.net - No Excuses Workout Playlist!
