Ingredients:

4 cups brown rice
A handful of spinach leaves (stem removed)
2 “roma” tomatoes (chopped)
3 Tbs cilantro (chopped)
2-3 chopped hot dogs (or some other weird meat– just not chicken or turkey)
Pho soup and/or beef bullion cubes
1/2 of an onion (sliced)
2 green onions (chopped)

Instructions:

* Fill up a pot with water (i.e. tons more than the rice– don’t worry, we’ll strain it later) and add your flavor cubes and a tiny bit of salt;
* When it boils, add: the rice, meat, onions, and tomato;
* Turn down the heat to a little below medium;

Let it boil for about 30 minutes, then add the whole spinach leaves.

Let it boil for about 15 more minutes (the rice should be tender).

Then strain out some of the water, leaving enough to keep it juicy. Turn off the heat. Add the cilantro. Cover and let sit until it cools.

Full of fiber and nutrients, easy on the stomach, and tasty to boot.

As my family knows, as of the 3rd of July, a day after something so horrendous, hideous, and unspeakably terrifying happened to me (i.e. waking up on someone’s lawn) that forced my hand, I quit drinking.

Yep, you read that right.  I haven’t had a drop of alcohol since the 3rd of July.  That’s like … what … almost two months, now?  Go me.

Anyway, not only have I stopped drinking but I’ve started a new diet.  No, I know, I don’t really need to diet– it’s more for my stomach’s sanity.  For some reason everything I eat makes my stomach hate life and consequently hate me.

Here’s what I’m eating:

  • brown rice
  • boiled chicken

Have I noticed a difference?  Not sure.  I drink so much caffeine in a day that my sleep cycle gets screwed up which doesn’t help things, either.

What, now I’m going to have to quit coffee and tea?
