Each of these thoughts really deserves its own blog post but between the photo planning and grocery shopping and cooking and dish washing (oh, my! the dish washing) and the annoying habit of wanting to sleep and eat and workout, I can’t produce a bunch of well -written blog posts, so this will have to do.
Which is a very long-winded way to say: I’m so grateful for all of you and the gift of working on Well Fed 2. I can’t wait to share these new recipes with you. When Dave and I are frustrated with the photography process, we visualize your happy faces as you snarf (SNARF!) delicious dino-chow into your well-deserving mouths. It helps a ton.
Now… Thursday thoughts…
The 2nd annual PaleoFX: Ancestral Momentum – Theory to Practice Symposium is happening in Austin, March 28-30. This year’s speakers include big brains like Robb Wolf, Sarah Fragoso, Nora Gedgaudas, Chris Kresser, Dr. Emily Deans, plus foodies like Michelle Tam and me!
The presentations should be badass, of course, but more importantly: if you come to PaleoFX we can hang out and visit! And eat. Together. So, yeah. Think about that.
Here’s the official word on the street:
The symposium will focus on the cutting-edge of nutrition, movement, human health, sustainability and ancestral well-being. In addition to presentations and Mastermind Discussions, there will also be top strength and movement coaches as well as paleo food bloggers giving hands-on demonstrations. The symposium is intended for laypersons and professionals alike.

My morning soup
I’ve been eating Silky Gingered Zucchini Soup for breakfast since I made up the recipe, but with the mayhem lately, I didn’t make a batch this week. And it feels all wrong. I just poured a double batch out of the blender. Equilibrium is restored. (If you haven’t tried this soup yet, I really think you should.)
Confession: I didn’t brush my teeth today, and I’m still wearing my pajamas. It’s 2:54 p.m. (However, I did flat-iron my hair; I’m not an animal.) I feel like I have a hangover, but I haven’t had any adult beverages since Christmas. I blame it on yesterday:
7:30 a.m. – 3.5-mile run
9:30 a.m. – Grocery shopping for photo shoot
11:00 a.m. – Start cooking for photo shoot
1:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. – Cooking, photos, dish washing, repeat, repeat, repeat
4:45 p.m. – Panicked shower (I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!)
5:30 p.m. – Crazed drive to Whole Foods (I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!… I wasn’t late after all.)
6:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. – Lead hands-on class
11:00 p.m. – Collapse with headache from Hell
On the up side, the people in my class were ridiculously fun and good cooks, so I think it went really well.
And there’s this:
Our first five recipe shots for Well Fed 2 are done!
The West Wing
I remembered that Dave and I watched The West Wing when it was on TV, and I recalled that I liked it, but… we’ve been watching back-to-back (to-back) episodes on Netflix, and I cannot get enough. We just finished watching the tear-jerker, first two episodes of season 2. I like to pretend that CJ, Josh, Sam, Toby, President Bartlett, Charlie, and Leo (oh, Leo!) are my friends. Don’t judge me. I’m tired.
What are YOU thinking about today?
