First, check out my Celestial Seasoning Giveaway!
I haven’t told you guys this, I’ve been feeling full of joy, excitement but at the same time calmness lately. I find everything I do interesting or even fascinating, I feel I can finally LIVE the present. Even in days that I don’t do any progress in term of work, I’d feel okay, and if I squeeze a jog/yoga or read for few hours, I’d be fresh again. Even in days that I wake up at 3AM I don’t piss off, instead I take advantage of it and fully enjoy some reading. I feel more open to people and learned to focus what I like about the person instead of what I don’t like. I feel more indulgent to myself by learning what are my strength, weakness and how to use them to boost the authentic happiness. (I promise to do a full review of the book). As a researcher, I look for reasons/causes of this wonderful feeling: is it this book and that book that totally changed my mind? is the new challenge that I started? is the spring season? I don’t know…. maybe a little bit of everything. 😆 Whatever it is, it’s working!!!
I feel I should write this down because I find that people tend to write/express when they’re depressed much more often than when they’re happy. But why is that? Shouldn’t we record more positive feelings?
My adapted version used:
- 1/2 cup soy milk + 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup buckwheat
- 2 egg whites
- 1 apple grated
- 1 oz. almond chopped
- pinch of salt/vanilla/cinnamon/nutmeg
1. Bring the milk water mixture to boil
2. add buckwheat
3. grate apple
4. add in the rest of the ingredients to the liquid
5. Bake for 30 min at 350F and boil 5 min at the end
it was AMAZING!!!! I’m speechless! That it was really really REALLY good! I never liked buckwheat until I tried this. MAKE IT! You’ll thank me! 😆
Jess asked me if I’d recommend this book? What do you think? Absolutely!!! If I don’t like it, I’d never started this challenge! 😀
Q: Have you tried buckwheat? What’s your favorite way to have it?
As this post gets published, I’ll be presenting my paper in our department seminar. I’m not nervous/anxious at all. I feel relaxed and confident! 🙂
