Pic of the Week
My whole grain sourdough loaf I baked on Sunday. Takes about 36 hours from the time I activate the mother until it comes out of the oven. Hereare the benefits of baking your own sourdough. Now I still treat bread as a weekend special treat, and don’t recommend it as part of your staple diet.
Here are the top three things that have made a difference in my week.
They might also be useful for you, or not.
1) A YouTube I've just watched…
Joe Dispenza.Love the practical side of Joe’s work. Basically he is all about discovering who you need to BE rather than what you need to DO. That many of us are trapped in the same story of the past, that we reinforce by our daily actions and routines. Definitely worth watching this interview and spending a little time exploring his work elsewhere on Youtube or get his latest book Becoming Supernatural.
2) A Doco Series I’ve watched…
Cooked. Why Sourdough? As he tries his hand at baking, brewing and braising, acclaimed food writer Michael Pollan explores how cooking transforms food and shapes our world. Focusing on four kinds of "transformations" that occur in cooking, he teases out links between science, culture and the flavors we love, and importantly how our food choices have changed (for the worse). The "Air" episode explains the difference between home baked sourdough and the bread we consume from Coles and Woolworths,
3) A Non-Alcohol I’m drinking…
Lyre Non-Alcoholic Spirit. This week I got a delivery of a dozen bottles of mixed "flavour" Non-alcoholic spirit from Lyre that I won it in a competition. The range includes a Highland malt whiskey, dry London gin, spiced rum and coffee liqueur. Staying on the wagon has never been easier thanks to non-alcoholic spirits that taste exactly like their boozy brothers. Created by Lyre’s, the new line is made up of 13 mock spirits, that even includes an absinthe. Here is the recipe for my favourite drink, theNegroni using Lyre’s spirits.
Ps. My favorite quote this week is "Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.” Athenaeus
I would love your feedback on what had an impact on you and the lesson in it, moral of the story, or learning you would share.
Have a ripper finish to your week.
