Tonight for dinner I made tuna salad…without tuna…or mayo.
How, you might ask, did I make such meal?
With vegetables and seasoning.
I’m trying to incorporate as many veggies into my diet as I can, so I’m always on the lookout for new recipes. One of the most interesting I’ve seen so far is “Better than Tuna” from this book. First, I whipped out my food processor. Then I discovered my food processor was broken, so I whipped out a knife and cutting board. I finely chopped three big carrots, two celery stalks, a quarter of an onion, half a red pepper, and a tomato. I drained the tomato and threw all the veggies in a bowl.
For the seasoning I mixed in one-half teaspoon Celtic sea salt, one Tablespoon parsley, one-half teaspoon kelp, and three Tablespoons of Vegenaise.
Looking at the concoction, I wasn’t sure what to think. It looked pretty appetizing, but there was only one way to find out for sure. I served the “tuna” in a toasted whole wheat hamburger bun. I also set out a platter of blue corn tortillas with hummus (I cut the tortillas into “chips” and baked them in the oven first). To drink? Fresh vegetable juice.
Numma, numma, numma. It was delicious. I highly recommend it (hopefully your food processor is working though because all that chopping was labor intensive). I’m so excited for lunch tomorrow to eat the leftovers.
Yoga has gone high tech.
In the last few weeks I’ve come across three different websites offering “online” yoga classes.
Core Power Yoga (click “yoga on demand”)
Yoga Today (offering “outdoor” yoga classes)
Jiva Diva (scroll down to “live classes”)
All three sites give free classes or trial runs. I’m seriously considering trying one out because I’m about to head to Colorado for a mountain retreat for two weeks. The last time I was on retreat I found a gem of a yoga teacher who gave 90 minute private lessons out of her home for $25 (talk about a deal!). But she’s now home-schooling her kids and doesn’t have time for another student (me).
So…I’m thinking of logging on to my computer for Downward-Facing Dog time. But after debating which site to try, I actually decided that instead of Internet classes, I am going to take this time to better develop my own home practice. Tune-in next week to see if I can recall the sequence for Sun Salutations and figure out how to move into Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) without my yoga teacher prodding me to firm my thighs. I’m looking forward to rolling out my mat by my bedside and trusting myself and my practice (okay, I might bring a book of poses for a little cheat sheet, but mostly I’ll be on my own).
One of the most embarrassing situations a man could ever have is being unable to produce an erection during sexual intercourse. This not only insults the female partner, but it also questions the man’s erectile functions. If this situation occurs frequently for the man, it is not only frustrating for him, but it may also trigger fear as the possibility that he is now impotent is becoming much clearer. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is perhaps the most undesirable sexual condition a man could ever have as this condition not only prevents him from having successful sexual intercourses, but also psychologically torments him because the main aspect of what makes him a man is no longer in functioning order.
Fortunately, there are now PDE5 inhibitor drugs like vardenafil hcl that can help him achieve the erection he needs for sex. These ED medications are very effective because they facilitate effective transport of blood towards the cavities inside the penis. The best thing about PDE5 inhibitor drugs is that using such drug does not give you an instant erection but the capacity to produce one. This means that as long as the drug is in effect in your system, you will be capable of producing an erection when sexually stimulated.
Vardenafil hcl is the generic version of the popular and very effective ED medication, Levitra. However, due to the high cost of branded ED medications, most men with ED who cannot afford such luxury, especially if they frequently need to take the medication on a daily basis due to an active sex life, prefer to use Levitra’s generic alternative because both drugs basically have the same overall effect. The problem though is finding vardenafil hcl for sale. There are hardly any pharmacies that have vardenafil hcl for sale on their shops. And those that do have vardenafil hcl for sale in their shops may not even be in your locality, thus making it hard for you to locate these stores with vardenafil hcl for sale.

If you are looking for vardenafil hcl for sale, your best bet will be to look for it online. It is actually easier to find vardenafil hcl for sale online because you allow the search engine to do the search work for you. The truth is that there are many online merchants that have vardenafil hcl for sale among their list of products. There are even online merchants with websites particular to having just vardenafil 20mg for sale. With the number of websites to choose from, all you need to do is find the right one that makes the best offer in terms of price per pill along with shipping costs.
Most men with ED these days actually buy their ED medications online. It is not only convenient buying such products online, but you are able to maintain secrecy over your embarrassing situation as well. The truth is, most men will not discuss their erectile issues with other men or even their friends. This makes the ability to buy ED treatment products online a great relief because you are safe from prying eyes over the products you are buying, as is the case when you buy at your local pharmacy.
Broccoli. Used to like it as a kid. Then one day I ate it and threw-up later that night. Haven’t touched it since. We’re talking 19 years of no broccoli. That’ too bad considering it’s one of the best vegetables out there – packed with nutrients, fiber, and cancer-fighting antioxidants.
As I continue to adjust my eating habits, I am always looking for new ways to add vegetables into my diet. Broccoli is one vegetable my husband loves, so I usually steam a little bit for him and make something different for myself – spinach, green beans, whatever. But the other night I was boiling some Barilla whole grain pasta. I drained the noodles and poured some organic pasta sauce over the top.
As I was scooping out the broccoli for my husband’s plate, I decided to mix some of the florets in with the pasta and red sauce. Yum. I love broccoli again. But only this way. I’m the same way with asparagus. Can’t really stand the stuff plain (unless of course it’s picked fresh from my own garden), but I will eat it in an omelet. Go figure.
