The Girl Who Runs

She is confused. She is distrusting and unclear herself about what will be enough. In her confusion and obsession to “fix” this and get on with living a full and meaningful life, she begins to question everything. She becomes afraid. Afraid she can’t trust her own instincts. Afraid of greater loss. Not only is she afraid of losing love, but she is  also afraid she is losing herself to the overwhelm and chaos.The resentment and anger are slowly suffocating her.

Crickets and Flour?

A smile came across my face this morning when  fellow RD, Kate Geagan    beholden unto me in my inbox the amino acid profile of cricket flour!

No but, it does rank well in leucine content. I  do however question the accuracy of Cricket Flours data. Whey protein concentrate’s leucine level is HIGHER than soy protein isolate. So body-builders don’t go thickin’ every things is all crickets and flours now! Nutrition Information from Cricket Flour Website
