Hydrate. It's hot out there.

One of my favs and way too easy. You have all types of options. So keep it simple or add some of your favs to the mix. 
Cold watermelon - frozen bananaa and a strawberry. Drink up!

Crock-pot Navy (White) Beans

Well this is how it happened. While my sister and I were visiting "The Show Me State" she made a dish that a friend of hers shared. Her friend relates that this dish and others were a staple when she was a child. So let's get to it. 1lb of beans soaked overnight, 1 cup of olive oil, 1 cup water, 1 or 2 10-12oz cans of seasoned diced tomatoes and season according to your taste buds. All the ingredients go into the crock-pot and cook on low for 6-8 hrs. Check occasionally ( I had a few teaspoons down the stretch) the last couple of hours for tenderness of the beans.

                            DIG IN!

Thanks Sis. Tell you know who I said thanks for sharing. What's a good meal without a story to go with it.

Vegan Hydration Options When Cycling......

Thanks goes out to Big Vedge! I'm looking for more creative ways to stay hydrated and energized and thought I would follow up with a vegan triathlete for a tip of two. He came through and I will be trying these this week.  If you have others ideas please share them with us.  Thank.

1. "Coconut Water With Himalayan Pink Salt" not super salty about 1/2 of tea spoon for 25oz. This one is used to prevent cramping and hydration (potassium, sodium chloride, polyhalite, carbs) all natural!)

2. "Cup of raisin and coconut water" this is almost like energy drink let them soak in the bottle (refrigerator) for about 2 day prior to use after liquid is done eat the raisins!
Food - I do Clif bars for ease of use but also do apple sauce, dates, raisins with mixed nuts.

Take advantage...

Of the moment. #Relax #Recover #Replenish on an overcast day in the desert. No bicycle riding today. Potatoes, leeks and mushrooms with the daily smoothie of ones choice. Today it's banana, blueberry, apple and strawberrys and one cup of OJ. aaaahhhh.  Have a wonderful day.

Options on a rainy AZ morning

When your plans are to ride at at 0700 and the forecast is rain and it's raining, you have options. I chose to take advantage of a cool rainy morning with potatoes, onions and red chili sauce with a tall French Pressed one. Enjoy your day where ever you may be and do something charitable today. Peace. 

The bike ride will happen a little later today after the rain subsides. #RideOn
