Over Christmas Kris and I spent lots of time with Jonathan and Kari (our niece), two health freaks. Jonathan is the man lifting Kari. She’s “planking” and Jonathan — right on the beach — lifted her up. We were all clapping of course.
When we went to meals, they used words for food we are not used to. We weren’t eating burger, we were eating protein. Not “milk” in the coffee, but protein. We had a portion of (not vegetables) but carbohydrates. So, we learned food is now either carbs or protein.
Question: When I had some fish crackers as a snack before dinner, did I have protein or carbs?
Jonathan and Kari were athletes at the University of New Hampshire — Jonathan played football (got a tryout with St Louis Rams) and Kari was on the track team — and are now in the Tampa area. He coaches some football in Tarpon Springs and they both run a gym (Crossfit DPC) where they lift and stretch … all things physical. On the beach Kari and our daughter, Laura, were doing squats and burpees and just making the rest of the beach bums a bit uncomfortable.
Kris and I and Pat are about to sit down for an evening dip into some protein. How about you?
