Yes, in fact I have been hiding under a rock, or really, living in a cave (paleo joke!). One day when I’m feeling chatty I’ll write an update on my ongoing Low-carb/Primal eating experience, which I still adore. But today is not that day. I will share a couple of food photos I took on our recent trip to Iceland (Warning: iphone photos ahead)
The first photo came from a little roadside diner. Not bad. Not bad at all:
The following dish came from a nice bistro called Edinborg in Ísafjörður:
This feast was nearly a disaster. At the grocery store, we grabbed a reasonably-priced packet of what looked like really good meat (?beef ?lamb?) It was only after we got to the checkout line that someone who spoke English informed us that we were about to buy horse-meat.
I ran back and exchanged it for bacon.
Now, onto the reason for my post today!
My dear friend Susan is holding an online charity auction from November 14-16. In her own words:
I’m hosting an online auction at my new blog, Air Heart for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer while blogging at The Great Balancing Act. I am quickly approaching a year in remission and felt a need to give back. So I am travelling to Scotland to run a half marathon for the society’s Team In Training. Just last month, another family member was diagnosed with lymphoma, so the need to support research in both detection and treatment for a cure is ever-present on my mind.
When I had a quick look at the list of goods, I noticed the words “Trader Joe’s“, “Lululmon” and “nut butter” among other desirable objects. I’m donating a super handy and cute insulated lunch tote that (ironically) I ordered from Canada when only Canada had cute insulated lunch totes. I never used it and it still has the tags on it.
Please feel free to go and check out Susan’s auction items here and bid away!
