Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

Açaí Fueled

My friend posted the super hero quiz on his blog and I was really pleased with my results! Suits my inner dork as the Remonica's have coined it perfectly. It is also fun because I was tied at 85% with Wonder Woman, come to think of it I don't actually know who Supergirl is, hmmm...

Anyway, I guess if I had to pick a super food it would be Açaí. The fruit of the Amazon that is created sustainably in the Rain Forest and fairly traded and imported by Sambazon among others.

I first tasted Açaí as a cool sorbet at the Sierra Nevada Music Festival, the next month I had it in a smoothie while passing through Saratoga on our way to Santa Cruz. Yesterday, I finally purchased my own supply at the worker owned food co-op Rainbow Grocery.

It was my first time at Rainbow and I told my friend as we strolled up and down all of the isles that I always thought it would be messy or dirty. I loved his reply, "Of course you did. If only the people in that movement were more attractive." I reminded him he had a girlfriend and told him the men shopping there didn't look so bad.

I do love my fuzzy friend we went on to brainstorm movie titles for his friend in LA, and we found all the ingredients for the Tempeh, Spinach, and Ricotta Parmesana I want to attempt today. As well as the Chocolate Caramel Chai tea bags I had not been able to find anywhere outside of Boulder Creek.

Off to make a yummy Açaí smoothie and tackle today's to do list...

Your Results: SUPERGIRL
Honest and a defender of the innocent

Supergirl is Superman's cousin. She has the same strength and weakness that he has but looks like a California beach bunny(blond and blue eyes.) I always thought you more as a Wonder Woman.
