It was fun today at work. I was writing about C-Flex and our products for advertising in 2009.  It gives me a little bit of creative challenge. I don’t go about it with 100% confidence though because I’m not an engineer (that would be my partner) and when we advertise, we do so in a way to attract the attention of  design and product engineers.  What I was doing today is offering a compilation of previous comments, articles, etc. restructured and organized into a new article format for a complete detail description of product and company.  It was enjoyable.  9868

Snacking Thoughts

I was thinking of food around 9:15, so I had a wonderful cup of coffee which put me off until 10AM when I had my mix of about 3 oz each Fage 0% yogurt and NonFat Pineapple cottage cheese. Topped it with 1 TBS trail mix- lots of raisins.   I was ok until 11Am when a nibble or two at a Detour bar satisfied my chewing desire.  9879

Lunch today was this filling arugula, watercress salad mix. I added some broccoli slaw and my usual radish and cherry toms. I heated some left over cod, lentils and the 13 bean veggie soup (about 1/2 cup bean mix total), plus 1/4 cup brown rice.   Dressing was F/F Asian Sesame. I split that piece of  molasses bread with Ted. All that kept me going until 2:30pm.arugula-salad1





At 2:30, I had a Met-RX Chocolate shake (1 scoop).  




Dinner: A Vegetarian Delight

I made Vegetarian Sausage using a recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. It was emailed to VGF members today. If you want lots of nutrition, low fat, tons of taste…. you HAVE to try this.

  • 1 pkg Tempeh, crumbled, put in small pan with water to cover and simmer for about 15 min. Pour off water. Add the following:
  • 1 TBS fennel seed
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 TBS soy sauce * (I thought this was too much -I’d reduce it)
  • 1 TBS olive oil.
  • 1 TBS lemon juice

Cook over medium heat until browned.



This was served with reheated lentils.  We also enjoyed oven roasted zucchini, cherry tomatoes and baby bellas.  To the roasted veg., I added 1/2 TBS olive oil, 1 TBS soy, and 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice. Tossed. Cooked 1/2hour at 350 F.



You’ll have to tune in tomorrow when new pics of Nicholas are loaded. They will be on the Nicholas pages.  Until then – everyone enjoy your evening!

Not quite zero

It’s a frigid 4 degrees this morning.  I don’t think Shane minded only going for a 25 min. walk. His feet were freezing up again.  I took my hand out of my glove to warm his foot that he was holding up, then my hand got SO cold. We cut the walk short.  But I did manage 5 miles on the T/M and 35 minutes of back and triceps.  Good work out. I went a bit heavier on the weights for 15 reps. each exercise.

As for a bone warming breakfast, I opted for a mix of GF Steel Cut oats and Thick and Rough Oatmeal with diced pear, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice.  My morning shake was 1 scoop Jay Robb with 3 oz raspberries, 1/4 FUZE, lots of ice and water. 

breakfast-0013The agenda for the day is the typical Monday schedule for me. Meetings for Ted, but he’s lucky. Ted gets to stay in his office right here at home, nice and warm.  I believe a visit to Nicholas is on the cal. for tonight. 

On this day back in 1941, the US entered WWII. 

Hey you guys… have a great Monday!
