Chicken Thigh Week – Tuesday

Tuesday 3/21

Well, it was a good plan until it wasn’t. No boneless chicken thighs at the store, the bone-in thighs I bought need to be frozen and I refuse to drive around town looking for chicken thighs. Tonight is a night out with the guys so there will be no cooking tonight. Several of us meet monthly to go out for a burger and a beer. This started many years ago when our significant others gathered monthly for bunko (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunco). Rather than sit at home separately we started our own monthly get together. We call this monthly gathering Anti-Bunko.

“The surprising finding is that our relationships and how happy we are in our relationships has a powerful influence on our health,” said Robert Waldinger, director of the study, a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital and a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. “Taking care of your body is important, but tending to your relationships is a form of self-care too. That, I think, is the revelation.”

Today’s meals consisted of the following:

Breakfast – Greek Yogurt Pancakes, banana, scoop of full fat Greek yogurt. I try to Eat More Protein at Breakfast but some days are better than others.

Lunch – Semi-Organic Vegan Split Pea Soup, see yesterday’s post Chicken Thigh Week – Monday. I’ve got a whole pot of this stuff. PB&J.

Snack – Apple

Appetizer – green salad, marinated artichoke hearts (at home before going out)

Dinner – Burger, no cheese, no fries and beer.

Did you know more Protein for Older Adults is important?

I guess Anti-Bunko night with burgers and good company is a good thing.

  1. I am finding your weekly meal diary extremely interesting. Also, I’m enjoying the links to previous blog entries. I reread about pro Tien today. Extremely important.

    1. Thanks. I thought I would try something a little different by combining journal type writing with links to older posts that have been focused on assorted research studies. So far, it’s been a lot of fun.
