I have some new veggies. I got these lemon cucumbers at the farmers’ market on Sunday:
Lemon cucumbers are a bit sweeter than normal cucumbers. The guy I bought it from said “you don’t even have to peel it!” I’ve been having the cucumbers raw, either dipped in salt or as a salad topping.
I still haven’t tried my bootylicious chayote, but maybe I’ll make it tonight.
I also got these Indian bitter melons:
But I chickened out. I cut them open, took one whif, and pitched them. I don’t like (actually despise) normal Chinese bitter melons and I wasn’t in the mood yesterday to be disappointed by my food.
In yoga news, I discovered yesterday that Cardio Yoga is back on On Demand! You can find it in the “Lose the last 5 pounds” section (or something like that). Cardio Yoga is my favorite Tom Morley video (20 minutes; vinyasa) and it’s actually the video that got me into yoga oh-so-long-ago (or last fall). I did it after my treadmill walk/run with Bobby. He woke up today with no back pain and credits it to the video. Every time he does yoga his back issues disappear almost immediately.
Today’s question is – what do you do to unwind/destress?
