It's been a while...

Yeah, I have neglected this blogging thing.  I thought I was on a roll with my first two posts, but then got distracted with The Real Housewives of New York City.  I know, just another reality show.  Not so.  Its hysterical.  Watch it.

I made couscous the other night.  I suggest trying it.  It rocks.  I got whole wheat couscous from Trader Joe's.  Instead of just using water to cook it in, there is a recipe where you can use water, lemon juice and olive oil.  It adds a ton of flavor.  I then cut up grape tomatoes, spinach and a little parsley.  It rocked.  I ate it in a pita with hummus.  Try it.  Its good for you.

I'm also on a supplements kick.  Not like I wanna-get-ripped-creatine-supplements, but rather daily vitamins, resveratrol, and omega-3's.  Good stuff.  Resveratrol is what is found in red wine that is supposed to give you a longer life.  However, to get your daily amount you would have to drink a case of red wine.  As fun as that was, I just wasn't very productive afterwards...  So, they have these concentrated pills that you can take.  Omega-3's are found in fish.  I know, most people are scared of fish oil, but now most companies are adding lemon juice to the supplements to not only cover up the taste, but to aid in the bad breath that may ensue after taking the omega-3's.  For this reason I take all my supplements before going to bed.  Oh, and the Omega-3's are in gel caplet form, so its not like you are downing spoonfuls of fish oil.

That's all.

  1. i took omega 3 capsules for a month. then i got this heartburn-type lump in my throat that didn't go away for 2 months. katie had an issue when she took them, too - like she had a stomachache everyday, or something like that. be careful with them!
