breakfast: Coffee and yogurt with cherry-plum jam
lunch: Ahhhh, lunch… It was a fabulous plate of fresh veggies (cauliflower, tomatoes, and green beans) with homemade avocado ranch. You know, I usually use those dry packets of ranch mix. Yes, tasty, but loaded with chemicals (MSG, anyone?). And, I don’t know if there’s anything real in those things. So, I used onions, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. It was awesome! I didn’t measure, so I can’t share any recipe. I did it all by sight. Yummy. I might just give up those ranch packets. Well, I ate my lunch, but was left with mostly tomatoes on my plate. So, I decided to turn them into a small caprese salad. It’s my favorite salad for a reason. A light sprinkle of fleur de sel. Fresh basil from the garden. Fresh mozzarella cheese. Oh, I think I’m drooling right now.
dinner: Homemade lightly-sour sourdough bread and scrambled eggs. Breakfast for dinner is always a good choice. Comfort food.
I recently read this quote from the Dalai Lama:
“Ultimately, humanity is one, and this small planet is our only home. If we are to protect this home of ours, each of us needs to feel a vivid sense of universal altruism. It is only this feeling that can remove the self-centered motives that cause people to deceive and misuse one another. If you have a sincere and open heart, you naturally feel self-worth and confidence, and there is no need to be fearful of others.”
