Because it does most mornings through the workweek, my alarm went off at 5:30 a.m. Now, as a lot as I prefer to be inspirational and probably aspirational to others, I’ve to admit that I’m not an early morning individual. Due to that, my physique isn’t able to eat heavy meals within the morning, so my breakfast consisted of a inexperienced smoothie.
I used child spinach as my base and added strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, powdered sea moss, flax seed and a few vegan vanilla protein. I gained’t profess to be an professional at making smoothies, however I attempt to mix some great things with the hopes that it’ll assist me to be wholesome and that it tastes good; “maintain it easy” system for me.
Whereas sitting at my desk at residence and dealing, I had a big bag of shelled pecans that I’m snacking on. I promise I’m not making an attempt to come back off as a well being extremist with the inexperienced smoothie and snacking on pecans, however I’m 51 now and I do know the alternatives I make now will have an effect on my high quality of life if I see my 80s.
Anyway, at about 11:45 a.m., I rewarded myself with some lunch. Understanding the present pandemic environment, I haven’t been frequenting eating places to dine in fairly often, however as we speak I did. My alternative was Nigel’s Good Food on Ashley Phosphate Highway.
I didn’t point out this earlier than, however I finished consuming meat in February of this yr for no explicit cause. So at this level I actually solely eat fish and a few seafood as a alternative. I suppose I might be recognized as a pescatarian to these outdoors of the Lowcountry, however for many who are native, we all know seafood is simply our way of life. So I headed to Nigel’s Good Meals, obtained a desk for one and ordered the salmon salad.
It is an eclectic salad made from blended greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and caramelized onions, topped with an attractive medium well-cooked piece of salmon. I paired it with some French dressing dressing and journeyed right into a state of meals satisfaction.
After my 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. teaching periods, it was positively supper time. I considered eating places which can be on my manner residence and selected One Love Cuisine, the Jamaican restaurant on Dorchester Highway. I entered with my masks on, used the hand sanitizer arrange by the door. I did not even seize a menu as a result of I knew what I needed: The pink snapper, fried, with ceviche, peas and rice and sautéed cabbage. The meals was ready completely, and I paired it with Pink Stripe beer. When in Jamaica, proper?
Let’s simply say as we speak was day.
