Breakfast is a hassle.
I want it to do one thing: provide nutrient-dense food and proper macronutrient ratios in the least time possible. It’s a functional meal.
The above is a video of the 3-minute high-protein and “slow-carb” breakfast that I find perfect for fat-loss and cognitive performance.
All ingredients were purchased at Safeway in less than five minutes, and if you dislike the whiteness of egg whites, just mix in some tumeric to create that familiar yellow. Flax meal instead of oil can also be mixed into either for a nice added nutty texture, and barring that, a handful of organic almonds with sea salt (also at Safeway) as a dessert adds a good caloric wallop.
[Postscript: I am replacing my plastic containers with Pyrex and glass! Several commenters have pointed out that toxins are released if you microwave certain types of plastic containers. Who knew trying to be healthy could be so dangerous?]
Odds and Ends: Answer “what is technology?” and get a MoGo mouse!
I met the CEO of Newton Peripherals, Matt Westover, on The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, and it turns out we have friends in common. He was kind enough to offer 50 MoGo mice to readers of this blog, and their latest MoGo Mouse X54 recently won “Best of CES” from Bluetooth SIG. It stores and charges within your PC Card slot and also acts as a media remote. Cool.
Here’s how you get one (or another choice below).
Upload a video of no more than 20 seconds in length to YouTube or elsewhere answering the question “What is technology?”
Be one of the first 30 to link to your video from the comments on this post, and you get your choice of the MoGo X54 or MoGo BT. The remaining 20 mice are reserved for the first 20 people who link to a video of their kids, the younger the better and no older than 14, answering the same question.
So the first 30 adults and 20 kids I see linked to in the comments get them (not the first 30 comments but the first 30 links to videos, so there could be 100 comments and only 25 links, and double entries count as one link). Be sure to put “techdefinition” in the “tags” section when you upload your video.
One more thing: you’re not allowed to check the dictionary definition, and it will be obvious if you do.
This competition expires on 5pm PST this Sunday, March 2nd and winners will be contacted via e-mail.
