Sunday Break

Because there is no such thing as taking too many breaks!


This collage includes photos that I took in Beijing, China. The sculptures and the architectural details are from both the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace. I visited in the midst of winter, so the Marble Boat was floating in a completely frozen-over Kunming Lake. On the morning of January 1st we visited the Great Wall. After Beijing we went to spend a few days in Shanghai…felt like I had just walked onto the set of Blade Runner.

I got back into the kitchen yesterday. Yesterday’s lunch was achiote-marinated grilled fish fillets served on a bed of warm tri-color quinoa salad with fresh fava beans and chopped cilantro. Tomorrow marks one month since I have eliminated beef, chicken, dairy, gluten, tomato, bell pepper, caffeine, and corn syrup from my diet. Can anyone suggest a good tofu cookbook?


So many book on my Sony Reader, which one to read? Maybe I’ll start with The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. I download it in December and haven’t gotten around to it yet – it seems to have gotten excellent reviews.


Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!

    Oh wow! I bet the Forbidden City was something to see.

    I am glad the elimination diet is working out. No clue on tofu cookbooks, sorry! The quinoa salad sounds beautiful and delicious.
