Addiction LXXIX

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I've started juicing agin after falling off the wagon about a month ago. Hopefully this will restore some of my energy which is almost always in short supply.

Needs a red bell pepper. Maybe some blueberries. Superfoods.

Fitbit recovered. Thank you for your prayers and concern.

Got scolded today in the pace line. I have a tendency to dial it up when I am in the front. I don’t do it on purpose, I think I am anticipating the drag from no longer drafting, but I am wayyyy over compensating. Really does me more harm than anything. After my third pull I almost got dropped.

Why do you think consuming and inordinate amount of apples and cucumbers is going to increase your red blood cell count?

Had a good ride. Lots of damage from the storm. Lots of noisy generators in some neighborhoods. We could not get water at our usual spot (French Creek State Park) presumably because no power means no well pump. We asked and were able to get our bottles filled at a local car repair garage.

I've found that a protein smoothie almost always does the job. That looks like it would do the trick as well. I wonder if we still have a juicer.....

You may also want to core your apples. Apple seeds are toxic. Not like 'fall over dead' toxic, but not healthy for you, either.

As an aside, and not really related to your post, I always get a kick out of those clickbait ads that tell us to "Try Quinoa! (or some other thing) Superfood of the (insert fallen civilization name here)!"

I think, "Try Potatoes! Superfood of the Irish!!" (at least 2 great-great grandparents came over to escape the Potato Famine)

They do have more fat that I imagined. One patty has 25% of the RDA of saturated fat. The odd thing I found about cooking them was knowing when they were done. Also, I wondered what was responsible for the "bloody burger juice" looking liquid so I looked up the ingredients. Probably the beet juice extract for people who need to think they are eating meat.

Is there a recommended "cook to" temperature?

I was thinking we should probably thank the mechanic dude with a six-pack of beer, but is that ok? I don't want to encourage vice and decadence, but I do wish to show some gratitude.

I will have to look at the cover sleeve. Speaking of that, the amount of plastic packaging that is issued to hold two burgers is obscene. The three-pack of larger camel patties I have bought twice have far less packaging.

I would think so. I gave the guys at a LBS a case one year around Christmas for hooking me up with a fair amount of free work on the spot during the year. An alternative is a Wawa gift card if there is a store nearby.
