The stress!!

I think I spent 8 hours cooking and/or eating and/or planning week 3's cooking today. Breakfast, as usual. But I woke up late so it wasn't long until I was shredding greens for salad, then prepping asparagus, chard, kale and carrots for a stir fry. Also cooked brown rice at the same time. But before that I started baking a couple loaves of spelt bread. Then ate with mum and figured out next week's food decisions. Then I went to the post office to pick up a package from Amazon (Vive le Vegan; Eat, Drink & Be Vegan; and Veganomicon). Punched down the bread and let it rise again.

Something must have happened for the next hour, anyway, and I baked the bread.

Toasted cumin seeds for lemony hummus, and made that recipe. At the same time, prepped and cooked tomorrow's lunch: braised kale with carrots and potatoes.

Finally, I ate dinner around 8:30. It was a steamed Artichoke and a slice of fresh baked bread with (goat) feta cheese. I've never had artichoke that wasn't from a can, but it was pretty tasty, although I ate it upside-down and got poked by the little thorns...

Anyhoo, I didn't get anything done other than cleanse-related stuff which was quite disappointing considering my to-do list at present. Ah well though, everyone needs at bit of stress to keep things a-hoppin'!

Or something?

There are plenty of food photos from the last few days, but I really ought to be reading my ethics textbook right now. They'll be up laterish!
