With my current schedule I’m finding it incredibly difficult to blog consistently . I hate it when my pictures get backed up in my camera. Since I don’t want to be lugging my heavy laptop around everywhere, I’m going to try to upload my pictures at night and blog from a remote computer in the morning.
Anyways, a lot has happened in the past week! First of all, my relatives from Beijing are visiting this week! For those of you who know me, you’re probably wondering, Lin has relatives? YES I DO (just not many)!!! And I want to wish a HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY to DAPHNY!!! She is joining me in the 24 club!!!
So, I haven’t been cooking very much and instead, have been grabbing lunch on the go at Trader Joe’s on 6th Ave. Today I had a TJ’s raspberry soy yogurt and veggie hummus wrap. I actually really enjoyed the soy yogurt despite its dismal reviews here (yes I am the weird girl who looks up reviews of her food… as she’s eating it).
Lin approved food!
I found it to be sweet but not too sweet with a nice yogurty texture. It didn’t taste like tartar sauce to me!
I also ate a veggie hummus wrap:
Had to open it with a box cutter!
Never thought I’d put box cutter and lunch in the same sentence!
The wrap was tasty-ish but a bit bland…
… which is surprising, considering that it has 26% of your daily value for sodium.
26% of your DV sodium??? Didn’t taste like it!
It would have tasted much better if they had used TJ’s edamame hummus instead or added goddess dressing !.
Over the weekend I was able to spend a little bit more time in the kitchen.
Daikon + Soy beef + Scallions
Loved the daikon, didn’t love the soy beef :-\
I also made this wintermelon soup!
Wintermelon + Sun-dried Tomatoes + Mushrooms + Tofu = DIVINE!
WARNING: NERDY STUFF AHEAD!
The watches utilize natural frequency technology which the Fruitz website claims “may relax and calm you, and reduce your stress level too.” I had emailed the Fruitz people to see the full study (they responded quickly and very nicely to my inquiry) but they didn’t really answer on topic. The closest I came to finding the study was on the Philip Stein UK website, here. However, I can’t determine whether their findings are statistically significant or even clinically significant yet. Anyways, more on it tomorrow!
