My Tiffin and a new Thrive book!

Posted on: February 25, 2009

dsc04334My Tiffin arrived today. It is pretty spiffy. It looks smaller than you’d expect but when you compact everything together it has all the space Kevin will need for his lunch. My big challenge now though is that Kev wants me to make him a lunch kit that has a compartment for his stainless steel water bottle, his Tiffin and a special space for fruit and cutlery. Any ideas?dsc043321

This is Kevin’s lunch for tomorrow. He is having left over Chinese stir fry from the Vegetarian Low GI book. He is also having homemade vegan pudding as well as olives, veggie crackers and some cheese.

We were trying to cut cheese out of our diet but then I found out that Kevin was losing weight from all his Martial Arts training as well as his regular work outs. I became worried that he wasn’t getting enough calories and started putting cheese back in his diet for the extra fat.

thriveOn Monday I was at Superstore and in their book rack (which I hardly ever look at) they had a copy of Thrive Fitness. It’s the newest book by Brendan Brazier. I own two of his other books and couldn’t resist snatching this one up too. I really like his philosophy on food, exercise and reducing dietary stress. His new book covers how to eat for optimum weight loss, muscle gain and overall wellness. He even talks about the ability to reduce the likelihood of disease or cancer even through diet.

One more little thing. When we were painting this morning Trey painted this chopstick I gave him and he has been using as a wand. He has been running around all afternoon pretending to be Harry Potter and shouting “expelliarmus” at everything.

Kev was playing along with him while he was trying to write some items for a grocery list. Everytime Trey “disarmed” him he would throw his pen in the air and make a big deal about how he couldn’t write because Trey kept disarming him. Trey was laughing so hard he could barely breathe. It was quite an amusing show.

Alrighty, I have another suggestion. How about something along the lines of the bilt ny lunch bags might work. I don’t know that I have enough neoprene but you could try something with it if you want. It would insulate at the same time too.

I have a couple ideas to ask Kev about tonight and I will show him the one you suggested as well. Thanks for the help.
