Happy Saturday morning! Nick and I are off on a long bike ride today – the last one before our upcoming bike tour in Death Valley. I’m also going to try to sneak in my first ski day tomorrow after ACL surgery. Wish me luck!

Here are some interesting reads from around the web this week…

Our brains trick us into making poor choices.

Matt explains how to live without a microwave. (Nick and I have known for a long time that life without one is no big deal.)

Recipes I’d like to try…

Asian Lentil Lettuce Wraps 8828Sweet & Sour Lentil Wraps | We’d reduce the soy sauce to 1 tsp and definitely include the Sriracha sauce.

Be well,
