Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Turnips in the Oven

Posted 08-29-2017 at 11:02 AM by Ludlum'sDaughter14
Well, here I am partway through Day 2 and realizing just how few vegetables are regularly a part of my diet, much less in the house. Picked up some turnips and some ginger yesterday, and when Googling how to cook turnip, found a recipe that calls for both. Roasted turnip is currently in the oven. From what I understand, the round root roasted to tenderness will nourish the abdominal organs like the stomach and the intestines, which is where I could use the most help at the moment. I'll have to check how the ginger affects that. What's weird is that in the store, the turnips were located under a sign that said "parsnips," so I don't know if they're the same thing? Still have to look that up.

Something I've noticed recently (not that it wasn't this way before, but I can be dense) is that I get nauseous and faint if I don't have any meat (i.e., chicken or seafood) for too long, as in a few meals. Not sure why this is the case, but it does seem to give needed stability to my digestive system. It could be related to how I've always over consumed more yin foods without a good balance of yang. Also maybe related to my nutrient absorption problems and resulting energy deficits.

Going to check on the turnips in about 10 minutes. Might take a quick nap first. Now that school is starting, going to bed after 1 is not going to work anymore.
