Sorry for the absence of posts all week. I promise I will give you the full run down on my week from hell tomorrow. Right now I am still a bit too worn out to go into details.
What I will say is that Tate and I flew from Beijing to Portland, Oregon yesterday and I am THRILLED to be back “home”. Even if we are actually still a bit “homeless”.
A few weeks ago I had a conversation with a Dutch women about food and nutrition and she asked me “isn’t it difficult to eat well in the States?”. I responded an emphatic ” no way, it’s the easiest place in the world”. She said “but there are so many fast food restaurants”. “Yes, but there are SO MANY OPTIONS!”.
By our last few days in China I couldn’t eat anymore because I was so disgusted by the lack of quality food and REAL food. When I arrived to my sister’s house in Portland yesterday I picked a few lettuce leaves from her garden, nibbled them, and all of a sudden my hunger can rushing back to me.
I head to bed tonight with a happy belly and gratitude to live in a country with an abundance of quality, nourishing food available to me.
