I realize that it’s been many moons (or maybe it just feels like it?) since I’ve done a market haul post or cooked up a post about what’s being made in my kitchen. I apologize. (Not that I think you’ve been holding your breath waiting for me to post something…maybe someday I can be that cool as a blogger.) However, the whole time change and lack of natural light exposure has gotten me in some kind of funk. (Read about how I combat the winter blues over at Forks in the Crossroads.) I need a vacation – one of the warm sandy beach variety (whoops, forgot to put this one on the list…).
In any case, I have been sort of cooking out of desperate necessity rather than taking any real joy in it. You are seeing it (or not seeing it, really) as a lack of posts here. The most interesting news…I bought and ate some rice!
I know it’s not paleo. I know it’s a grain. However, I couldn’t shake this feeling of wanting to eat rice for a few weeks now. I usually walk right by the bulk bins at the co-op because most of those bins are not paleo food items, but today, I took a good look and bought myself some forbidden rice. It’s a type of black rice. Black rice is thought to have numerous health benefits, so I thought why not.
I am a firm believer that my body knows what it needs, so for the immediate future I will be eating a little bit of black rice. I fully plan on going back to eating a grain-free diet after I’m done eating what I bought.
That’s about it for exciting food news (or maybe it’s not so exciting).
Once I’ve shaken my funk, I hope to be back with more interesting things. Til then, I hope that everyone is enjoying the holidays! Be safe, warm, and happy.
