Sometimes a night in with fellow homebody is as good as it gets.
The kamut spaghetti is product of Italy. The goat cheese was Ontario goats. Pear and cauliflower? Where were they from? I forget but they went well against the strong taste of the dense whole wheat bread (homemade). President’s Choice primavera pasta sauce is product of Canada. High amount of veggies but also high acid and high salt (14% rd). Topped with sliced spinach.
Opened the spaghetti using Gino’s demo of a man’s way and a woman’s way to open pasta, with a hip bump or a heel-kick.
“It’s very hard to do a double-blind study on nutrition. There’s no placebo broccoli.” ~ Journalist Michael Pollan at his talk on Food Rules, An Eater’s Manual. Lots of good there: if it’s a plant, eat it. If it’s made in a plant, don’t. If it’s a food that’s advertised, skip it. Eat mostly vegetables. Most cultures have a rule that says eat until you’re not hungry anymore, until you’re 2/3 (1/3 liquid, 1/3 food and 1/3 air) or 80% full. Avoid food-like-substances and foods that have ingredients that you wouldn’t have at home. Shop preferentially from produce aisle and farmer’s markets. Eat food that will rot.
