As I mentioned, I started reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book Committed. I am a big fan of her previous book Eat Pray and Love and as I recently just got married, I have to read it. I haven’t finished it yet (1/3 to go) but I want to share my favorite quote:
“… the emotional place where a marriage begins is not nearly as important as the emotional place where a marriage finds itself toward the end, after many years of partnership.” “… there is no one special person waiting for you somewhere in this world who will make your life magically complete, but that there are any number of people with whom you could seal a respectful bond. Then you could live and work alongside that person for years, with the hope that tenderness and affection would be the gradual outcome of your union.”
I know.. it’s not a very romantic quote… but it is so true. Believe me, I wouldn’t agree with it 10 years. I’d say that passion is the most important element of a happy marriage. But life experience taught me that it might not be true.
What’s your thoughts about it?
Monday was quite productive, in addition to curse the snow all day long (I had a meeting with my advisor and it’s canceled) :(, I did some progress with work.
I started with a hearty breakfast: high in protein, fat and fiber! Black bean & black rice milk, high-fiber high-fat bread (recipe below) and 1/2 baked squash with greek yogurt.
high-fiber high-fat bread adapted from April’s recipe
- 1.5 cup fiber one grounded
- 1 cup flax meal
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup black bean milk (you can use any milk)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp acai powder (optional)
Mix everything and bake for 30 min at 350F.
It’s dense, chewy and the addition of coconut oil gives it a great flavor 🙂
A quick stir-fry using these
baked german dumpling tastes even better as leftover!!! 😀 Love it~~~
School is still closed :(, I think it might not open until next week, more snow is expected for today and tomorrow! So, more stay-home for me. You guys enjoy the air and sun for me!
Q: How often do you declutter your house?
