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.

    My favorite cookbook is The Compassionate Cook or, “Please Don’t Eat the Animals” A Vegetarian Cookbook by PETA and Ingrid Newkirk
