White Bean + Soyrizo Chili

I wish I was an effortlessly kewl female.

I am a lot of adjectives, but effortless is not one of them.

Have you read the Rolling Stone article on Adele? Add it to your bucket list, please. After I read it, I just sat there. Staring into the abyss that is my living room wondering why I am not more like her. She is so freaking cool I can barely stand it.

She doesn’t even try. She doesn’t have to. She wakes up each day & just IS that cool of a chick. How does one get there? How do I get there? I seek guidance here. It currently takes an embarrassing amount of effort for me to do anything resembling cool. You like my blog? You can’t imagine how much I agonize over every detail of this stupid thing. Oh I’m good at my work? I happen to second guess every decision I ever make. I sound like a fun wife? I cry 89% of the time & whine every evening after work until we fall asleep. (Perhaps no one ever said I was a fun wife but ya know)

    Rach, I see you cook with soy products alot; do you find that it’s affecting your hair? I found that I had been losing hair by the fist-ful and did some digging as well as speaking to my doc and she said that yes, soy can affect women this way. Just wondering … ALOHA! Auntie

      Not at all, actually!! It might look like it here, but I typically only have one or two meals a week that are soy heavy. Plus, I take a supplement that helps with hair & nails. Haven’t seen a change yet, but will be on the look out! Thank you, dear!
