i don't know if anyone else experiences this, but when there is something that causes anxiety for me, my stomach sort of turns off. this could be any anxiety, good or bad. for example, before a show, i shouldn't eat, i know food wont settle right.
i believe this is what triggered my quest for healthy foods, early on in my life. i've been vegetarian a little over eight years now. i remember i decided to try & not eat meat for a while to see if my heaviness in my tummy eased up. & it did.
& then that makes you look differently at meat all together. anyway.
back to the special toast, i mentioned.
neither nate nor i eat breakast very often. we're just not hungry in the mornings.
a cup of coffee & we're golden. but, mornings like today, where we lounge around, playing with our kitties, we start wanting a wittle snacky packy.
my sister came to visit last weekend, and brought a glass jar ;) of homemade apricot jam.
so here's the complicated special toast recipe :
two slices of toasted ezekiel bread
(i love this bread b/c it's organic, & they use sprouted grains, which are full of extra nutrition for ya!
& not the biggest fan of plain bread anyway, so this does the trick for me)
crunchy almond butter (i use trader joe's brand)
helen's yummy apricot jam
greene farmer's market & rehearse for our show tomorrow night.
if you live in NYC, come see us play tomorrow, at the delancey @ eight.
we've had some record breaking rain recently here. i don't hate it.
if we move from here, i'll miss the variety in the weather, ya neva know watcha gonna get around here.
