Hey guys! I hope your monday was good. Mine was great! It almost felt like summer today with a balmy 18 C. I had an active release appointment this morning before work for my left lower leg. I always feel so good when I walk out because he loosens up all the tight muscles in my calf. Today was no different.
I made a quick “Green Monster” to drink at work for breakfast. I’m donating blood on Wednesday so I want to make sure I’m getting lot’s of iron rich foods in my diet, like the spinach in my smoothie. As I type this I just realized that I used soy milk with calcium, which blocks the absorption of iron. So much for that idea, I should have used orange juice because that helps the body absorb iron. Oh well, next time. I wasn’t going to donate at first with my half-marathon coming up, but I figure I should be okay. It’s not like I’m going to win any medals! For breakfast I also had a hunk of Raisin Walnut Hemp Loaf I made on Sunday.I’ll post the recipe soon.
For dinner tonight I made a lentil curry.It was really good and I will also be posting the recipe soon. This one I just whipped up without referring to any recipes and it turned out pretty tasty. Anyways here’s a great hummus recipe for you.

1 slice of lemon, chopped
