Yesterday, I went to an internet hotspot to pay bills before I left town, only to lose access to the free WiFi for reasons I still don’t understand. So today, I headed over to Panera and mooched off their free WiFi and tea refills while I did a little work, answered emails, and updated my Facebook page. As the lunch crowd picked up, hungry patrons buzzed around my table like vultures looking for a place to land. Yes, I was THAT person with the laptop and the tea. And you know what? I didn’t give a rats. Since I had been put out by the cable company, I could do whatever I dang well pleased. I had attitude. When I got home this evening, my universe had been restored. Internet service was up and running and I no longer lived under a rock.
So now I am in the midst of overpacking for my trip, and thinking about how much fun I will have these next 10 days. San Antonio IS the Tex Mex capitol of the world and I will definitely enjoy my fair share of the amazing cuisine this culture has to offer. I’m not gonna lie, these trips to Texas often test the limits of my paleo willpower, so there will be times that I might cross that border into non-paleoville and knowingly choose to indulge in something less healthy. And I will enjoy and savor every last bite! However, I hope to make the best choices available to me while still enjoying the delicious food. I’ll take lots of pictures and show you how to navigate the menus and food offerings of South Texas. I know this is a limited time offer and when I get back to reality, I’ll dial it back in.
Speaking of Mexican food, and all things inflammatory, I want to share a link with you about an article written by Dr. Dwight Lundell, a world renown heart surgeon who talks about what really causes heart disease. (No, it’s not saturated fat, cholesterol and red meat.) This information is so important because we all know someone who has died from heart disease or is currently battling it now. Unfortunately, you might be surprised by what Dr. Lundell has to say about how we manage heart disease, and how we’ve been misinformed by the medical community, the media, and big pharma. Many of us on the “lunatic fringe” have been enlightened by the knowledge and wisdom that has been around for years, but just hasn’t been popular with the mainstream media or the likes of Dr. Oz or Oprah. Now is your chance to find out what you need to do to improve your health. Read the link and let me know what you think!
