Sliver from an Onion?

by Sheri on August 10, 2010

This morning I woke up at 5:30 am and got in my weight workout.  I did my Fit Yummy Mummy circuit today. 

I tried a new workout from the series called Tri-sets.  You do three different exercises one after the other in a circuit and repeat 2-4 times.  There are two circuits of three different exercises.  I loved it and it sure did make me sweat!  Nothing like a good sweat to get your morning started.

I have been doing the Fit Yummy Mummy workout on and off now for about 2 years.  I originally started it about a year after J was born and it helped me tone up a lot.  Just running and walking was not cutting the mustard anymore!   I love the method of training outlined in her book.  It works really well for a busy Mom like myself. 

After my workout I gave my new post workout drink a try.

IMG_1256I have used Prograde products in the past and have really liked them.  So I ordered some more and I thought I would give this workout drink a try.  It was very good.  I liked the vanilla flavour and the best part is it was easy to mix.  I just gave it a good shake for a few seconds in my shaker.

Breakfast this morning was eggs again! Sorry..boring I know.  They looked the same as yesterday.  So I won’t bore you with another picture.

This morning after breakfast J had a speech appointment.  On our way home I stopped at the market to pick up a few things for my lunch.  While I was picking out an onion I managed to get a sliver from the skin!  Man did it hurt!  I had to wait until I got home to get it out.  That was a first getting a sliver from a vegetable!  My finger is still a bit sore where I removed the sliver from

For lunch I grilled up J a yummy grilled cheese on my Griddler and for myself a very tasty Panini!


In a fresh Multigrain Ciabatta Bun I layered sliced gruyere cheese, grilled yellow squash, spinach and smeared each side of the bun with whole made pesto I had in the freezer.

IMG_1262 It turned out fantastic.  The bread got crispy on the outside and the inside was gooey with the cheese and so flavourful.  Mmmmm… was so good! 

IMG_1264It was also very filling!  I was going to have some cherries as well but decided that the sandwich was enough.

The rest of my afternoon was quiet while J had his nap.  I worked a little on my computer, sipped some tea and did a bit of laundry.

Supper tonight was turkeylicous! 

IMG_1292 I took fresh ground turkey and seasoned it with cilantro, diced green onion, Dijon mustard, sea salt and cracked pepper.  I formed them into 5oz patties for the hubs to cook on the grill.

IMG_1290I then sautéed some mushrooms and onions in one pan and kale with garlic in another pan with EVOO.

IMG_1289 When it was ready I layered it all on the plate, sautéed kale, turkey burger, mushroom and onion mixture.  It was delicious and so very healthy.

Then a little bit after supper I introduced the hubs to the deliciousness that is Banana Soft Serve!!  I of course cannot take credit for this wonderful confection it is all Gena’s creation!


Tonight I blended frozen banana, frozen cherries, a few choc chips, splash of almond milk and a little bit of vanilla in the food processor.

While that was working it’s magic I made a little chocolate sauce.  I eyeballed it but I used coconut butter, coco powder and a little agave nectar to sweeten.  I love how it harden on the banana soft serve as a shell! 

Then I gave it a little cloud of whipped cream and a little more drizzle of the chocolate sauce.

IMG_1295This was the BOMB!  So very good…and I don’t feel guilty at all for eating it!  The hubs loved it too!  I need to freeze more bananas now..ha!

Well the hubs rented Date Night for us to watch tonight so I am off! 🙂

Your photos are fabulous! The banana soft serve looks awesome. I have those dotted bowls and love them! 😉

Whole grain breads, cereals and pastas have high amounts
of thiamin. So it has a less full bodied flavor than tamari and it has a larger alcohol content which isn’t necessarily a problem but there’s less flavor to it and since it has wheat in it people with wheat allergies and people
with gluten intolerance which is a big percentage of
the population cannot consume it. A common problem,
particularly in larger breeds of dogs, is problems with their joints as
they age.

You can do this by ensuring they eat sufficient fruit and vegetables.
Part of the confusion about superfoods comes from the fact that they are often backed up by some legitimate scientific research; however, the conclusions may
be blown way out of proportion, becoming dubious claims eagerly accepted as
fact. Not only are they good for you to battle illness, they also aid in weight loss.

精准医疗要做到个性、高效及预防的关键在于筛查和诊断,因此基因测序等检测诊断技术的发展是关键。成本的下降让基因测序商业化市场的打开成为可能,基因测序技术的成熟和商用经过了多年的发展,1980 年自动测序仪出现,2001 年完成了人类基因组框架图标志着这一技术的成熟,2007 年二代基因测序技术大幅降低测序成本,使得这一技术应用出现可能,以走在前列的Illumina 公司为例,该公司自2007 年起把当时每个基因组的测序成本费用从1000万美元降到了当下的1000 美元, 根据Illumina 公司数据,全球NGS(二代基因测序)的应用市场规模预计为200 亿美元,药品研发和临床应用是增速最快的领域,增速超过15%,肿瘤诊断和个性化用药是最有应用前景的领域,市场规模120亿美元。乐土投资与Illumina以及新一代的基因检测公司Genalyte, Centrillion都有着合作关系。
