Knee replacement surgery is a huge undertaking. I have already had an MRI, an x-ay of the knee and an ECG. I am about eleven days out from the surgery and I just had the prescriptions filled. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t take any medication. Zero. Not even aspirin. For this procedure there are seven medications!Continue reading
OK, so I can’t get the meat that I normally get, so I’m just getting whatever they have. Last week it was OsoBuco, that was delicious! This week it was Korean ribs. I didn’t know what Korean ribs were, but I ordered them anyway. I’m glad I did.Continue reading
Looking for a substitute for grains? Here you go!
I don’t think there’s a better substitute for grain than hempseed florets. I like them as a morning cereal or as a substitute for rice at dinner. They are loaded with protein, 10 grams per 3 tablespoons. They also have 15 g of polyunsaturated fat, the good fat, and finally and best of all, they have effectively one carbohydrate.
I usually use the hempseed florets as a cold cereal in the morning. They’re perfect on a keto diet! I put berries on top, some cinnamon and heavy cream. If I’m not doing keto, I use coconut or almond milk. I like this warm as well as cold.
Another great way to use hemp seed florets is in place of rice. When I use it as a rice substitute, I heat it up in water or I sauté it with onions and celery. For the sauté, use a tablespoon of coconut oil and a half cup of diced celery and onion. Sauté celery and onion until translucent then add the hemp seed florets last. Season to taste. I use adobo seasoning on mine. Hempseed is the perfect complement to any meat or dish that you would normally serve with rice.

I wasn’t able to blog yesterday because I got involved in a yard project. I wanted to expand my patio by a few feet so that I could move the table and chairs into a corner and make more room for a glider for Moli and I to sit on during these gorgeous spring afternoons and evenings. It was tricky because I didn’t have any two by fours and it involved building up the side of the patio in order to level it out and accommodate a chair.Continue reading
