Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

In the Kitchen—Menu

Some of the things I'm eating for the next few days. As I've said before, I don't eat meals so much as I snack throughout the day. It's better to eat lots of small meals throughout the day, but also to eat any largish heavier meals in the morning, and have each meal get progressively smaller (breakfast as the biggest meal rather than having dinner be the big meal, like is not uncommon in our culture). I'm trying to arrange my snacks similarly. Adelle Davis said, "eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper." I don't know why exactly this is, but breakfast revs up your metabolism for the day.

Grapefruit or pear
Breakfast stir fry. I first started making this about a year and a half ago, and it was like a tofu and veggie scramble with ayurdvedic spices (turmeric, cardamom, etc.). It's progressed to become more of a stir fry. Kale, onions, chickpeas, the same curry spices, topped with tomato and lemon.

Egg salad sandwiches. Localish cage-free eggs and vegenaise. Open-faced, tomatoes and spinach and multi-grain bread. The boyo and I are going to dye Easter eggs soon.

Pizza with goat cheese and barbecued tempeh.

Pitas and hummus.
Chips and guacomole.
Cut vegetables.


Smoothies made of soy yogurt, frozen berries, and greens.

Dark chocolate.
