Info overload! and more info on red bean than you’d ever want to know…

There is just wayyy too much info out there on the internet.  I log on to check my e-mail and within 5 minutes, there’s at least 4 or 5 tabs or windows of web pages (if not more) open.


I notice myself getting stressed by my internet sessions. Keyed up!  Anyone else feeling like that?  Sometimes it’s fun.  Most times, it’s kinda exhausting.  How do you focus???


I’m trying to focus on just keeping up with family and friends–writing writing–and keeping up with the blog, yoga news, and the random google searches (today’s info hunt was “azuki bean” 🙂


(p.s. “azuki bean” is commonly called “red bean” or “pat” in Korea.  It’s used for lots of fillings in pastries, and is a yum topping on patbinsu (the summer icy sweet treat I mentioned in another post.  it’s origins can be traced back before 1000 b.c., and it’s the second most popular bean in Japan (soybeans are #1)…as with most beans, packed with protein and fiber, and iron!  i was borderline anemic according to the required blood panel we had to do back in March upon entering Korea (weird since i was eating tons of galbi (korean bbq) at the time…makes you question the whole meat industry’s advertising meat as an “excellent” iron source.)  ANYWAYS…Extra iron is a good thang.


Bottom line~red beans rock, and i think i’ll pick some up tonight.  might even sprout these lil’ babes and make a raw sprouted azuki bean salad with some carrots and beets?
or perhaps a pumpkin, red bean, and silken tofu porridge will be a fun thing to cook this week.

My cookin’ vibes are on fire (they were ice cold a month or two ago)!!! maybe the artist’s way will make me a chef.  ha.  okay, enough ramblin….).
