Day 13

So I've done OK with the 30 day shred, except today I was interrupted mid workout by a baby poo emergency, or at least hubs swearing loudly and a lot and baby screaming. So I went to assist.

As for the new foods I'm adding to my diet here's what I've tried so far and my personal opinion. It's more likely an opinion on how well I can execute new recipes (i.e. no well).

Swiss Chard - the stems were boiled in a chicken stock then added to the frying pan with the leafy portion. The stems were good the leafy portion was bitter and gritty (maybe I didn't wash it well enough).

Dragon Fruit - good mild taste, it has the texture and watery-ness of a water melon and the taste of a kiwi

Parsnips - not bad, much like a potato, I roasted it with thyme. All the veggies in the roasting pan were dry, including the carrots. Next time I think I'll add a little chicken stock to the roasting pan.

Acorn Squash - good, sweet, a little dry again, probably due to the recipe, which was the same recipe as the parsnips.

On the docket still to try and in my fridge already: Rutabaga & fennel. I need to go shopping for 4 more new foods. I'm thinking one will be quinoa.

For thousands of years the gods have utilized birth defects to punish those who have been wicked in prior lives. In the 20th century, in an attempt to minimize their culpability the gods shifted responsibility to mothers willing to injest biotechnology products. Whereas throughout human history the gods accepted culpability for this act and made it up in a future life since the parents are now responsible there is no credit forthcoming.
The gods used these organization securities throughout the investment industry as a way for fund managers to subsidize dismal returns, maintaining their employment and keeping the investors at bay:::
Biotechnology's wild profits were used to prop up mutual fund returns, condemning the common man who has 401k or retirement. Sadly, it is an evil too many are happy to accept, despite the consequences in a future life.

A good example of societal decay and how the gods manage their culpability is birth defects. In the past the gods occassionally punished people by divinely creating birth defects in the womb with Artificial Intelligence. Now, with the advent of biotechnology, they tempt the mother with "earning" and compell her to take a substance in utero which deforms the fetus, dispelling the gods of blame and future compensation to the disfavored. This is also the goal when switching the military from consignment-based to an all-volunteer force:::What appears to be progress may be just the opposite. "Some people don't understand." THAT MEANS WAR IS BAD!!! YOU'RE HURTING YOURSELF AND EVERYBODY ELSE INSTEAD OF "EARNING".
The gods work in mysterious ways. Trying to understand it a waste of time and a distraction you impose upon yourself. Example:::Punishment is a good thing. It is feedback from the gods and illustrates unacceptable behavior. When they don't care is when you are in trouble.
