|Rice penne, onion and garlic, crimini mushrooms, burdock root, fresh and sun-dried tomatoes, chick peas, and Swiss chard. Sauted with tamari and a splash of red wine.|
Tomorrow is set-up day for radiation. I'll get a CT scan, three little dot tattoos on my torso which they'll use to line up with the radiation beams, and a casted "immobilization mold" which will be used to hold my body in the exact same position every time I'm treated, beginning three weeks from now - 28 times, five days a week for nearly six weeks.
I'm at the point now where all of this cancer treatment stuff is getting just plain tedious.
So let's change the subject, shall we?
I am behind on sharing my meals with you. Many salads, a few exceptions, and a bit of a sesame seed fetish. Feast your eyes:
|Black beans and guacamole, plus red onions, dandelion greens, beets, shaved carrots and summer squash.|
|This one is undressed. I liked the clean colors and the clean, simple taste. (Though I did later add salty and tangy umeboshi vinegar).|
Tofu, orange bell pepper, red onion, radicchio, and spinach.
|Spinach, radicchio, avocado, chick peas, onion, grape tomatoes, and sweet red grapefruit, and a simple vinaigrette (with sesame seeds, of course).|
|On this day I craved moisture and crunch: fuji apples and romaine lettuce answered the call. Plus carrots, yellow peppers, and good old sesame-lemon vinaigrette.|
|Black beans and basmati rice, onion, carrot, tomato, cilantro, and crunchy jicama with a twist of lime. Oh yeah, and sesame seeds.|
