Yesterday the PT said that I could start doing low impact workouts such as yoga, walking, and biking. So this morning I queued up a @grokkerinc yoga video. There were some poses that weren't comfortable and others that my leg said absolutely not. It wasn't in a painful way...my leg didn't want to bear the weight.
We'll see how my leg fairs over the day, especially at the Y tonight. Last week when vacuuming my knee felt awkward and my ankle kept popping. Neither were normal for me.
#sponsored First kitchen experiment with one of the @guygoneketo condiments. The teriyaki sauce seems to boost the flavor of the ground pork. Veggies complete the remaining food ingredients: onion, bell pepper, mushroom, and riced cauliflower. The spices used are only salt and garlic cloves. EVOO got everything started off.
The ingredients in Guy Gone Keto's teriyaki sauce are: TAMARI SOY SAUCE (WATER, ORGANIC SOYBEANS, SALT, ORGANIC ALCOHOL (TO PRESERVE FRESHNESS)), WATER, KETOSWEET+(ALLULOSE, STEVIA, MONKFRUIT), MCT OIL, LESS THAN 2% OF SPICES AND NATURAL FLAVORS
This kitchen experiment was a success! I definitely want to try more combinations with Guy Gone Keto's teriyaki sauce.

I stuck around after my regular Saturday visit to the Irvington branch of @indylibrary for the monthly craft activity. Yesterday's project was making a bracelet using a Japanese kumihimo method. I made the pink & purple one there and the other this morning.
The first one has 7 threads and the second 8. (I somehow cut an extra thread to take home.) We selected a button and our colors, cutting them to 3 ft lengths. Then we threaded the button to the middle. All the threads then went through the hole in the middle of a disk. Both ends of each thread were paired in separate slots on the outside of the disk. Then we braided the threads moving them into different slots in a pattern.
Once we were almost at the ends the threads are removed from the disk. A loop is made that's big enough to fit the button. The ends are tied off with a separate thread.
Of course there are other patterns from what we did. Beads and other findings can also be added. Longer threads can be used to make a necklace. This is a craft that could be simple for little kids or something complicated, it all depends what you want to do.
It was nice to take a break and make make something different. The extra thread did throw me off as I kept messing up so it took me much longer to make the bracelet.
What types of craft projects do you enjoy solo or with the kids?
Today I attempted the Quinoa Bread recipe from the @immufood app. Some of the measurements didn't make sense to me and one ingredient I wasn't sure about. This is a recipe that needs multiple attempts to find what works.
I told Benny I was making the 🍞 just for me but he still wanted a bite. He said that it tasted like nothing (of course, the only spice was sea salt) and there was a weird aftertaste.
Check out the blog for the Quinoa Bread recipe and two others, including substitutions made and my thoughts on these first 3 Immufood Kitchen Experiments.
