Stuff I Talk About

Violet, lime and tangerine fabrics swishing along the sidewalks. One street market, two grocery stores plus some herbs from an Egyptian friend’s refrigerator in order to make a dish of Greek marinated chicken, turmeric and cinnamon spiced quinoa over spinach with Turkish dates. White fireworks exploding in the sky over the hill celebrating festivals we […]

The full moon over the Tetons Thursday night as we transplanted lilacs. I wish the mountains stood out more in the photo, in person it was glorious. It’s still constant work time here. We got a lot done in the last couple weeks, but there’s plenty more to do.   We dug up some massive plum […]

A VERY easy vegetarian meal in a bowl. The combination of garbanzo beans (chick peas) with pasta creates the complex proteins a vegetarian needs. Very palatable for the garlic and tomato lover.

BLOKES can lose weight by sinking pints and gorging on Wetherspoons food EVERY day, a top nutritionist has claimed. Speaking exclusively to Sun Men, fitness expert Kit Chamier – who advises top athletes on meal planning – reveals how men can shed the pounds with booze and pub grub. Blokes can trim the fat by gorging at Wetherspoons every day Top nutritionist Kit Chamier devised this pub-friendly diet plan exclusively for Sun Men Kit claims fellas can burn up to 0.5kg of flab a week with the ‘Spoons shedder’ diet plan – and you don’t even need to go to the gym. He said: “2,500kcal is current government guidelines for an adult male. “So having a 500kcal deficit per day should yield 0.5kg weight loss per week. “Protein intake has remained high throughout this plan therefore it is highly likely the weight loss will be fat mass. “Any exercise and calories burned on top of this deficit will simply accelerate the weight loss, although I would advise that a colossal deficit isn’t necessary.” [boxout headline=”Monday” featured-image=”8929165″ intro=”Wetherspoons breakfast today.”]Vegetarian doesn’t always mean healthy, and often can mean higher calories. Eggs are really nutritious with lots of protein but also fats, which adds calories. Balanced by the rest of the day with two other nutrient dense and lower kcal meals. Breakfast: Wetherspoons Vegetarian Breakfast – Two eggs, 2 quorn sausages, baked beans, 2 hash browns, mushroom, toast, tomato 933kcal Lunch: Rainbow Chicken Cous cous 400kcal 100g Chicken breast 130g couscous cooked 60g Rocket 50g iceberg lettuce 80g Onion 130g Red pepper 40g Sweetcorn drained 5g Olive oil/butter Snack: 100g strawberries, one banana 120kcal Dinner: Low fat bolognese 100g Turkey breast mince 130g cooked rice noodles 130g spinach 100g tomato 120g tinned tomatoes 40g sweetcorn Drink: 2x Heineken 0% Total calories: 1993[/boxout] [boxout headline=”Tuesday” intro=”Heavy Wetherspoons lunch with red meat.”]And even room for a snack today.

I stood up and walked towards the entrance of the stone monastery, towards […]
