Went to the farmer's market in the morning to buy some vegetables. Came back and made Chinese ginger onion pork liver and mustard greens. Then I biked to Whole Foods and tried out this sprouted buckwheat granola. I noticed that the green spirulina one that also includes banana gave me breathing issues, while the cocoa one was just fine. The main different in ingredients was the spirulina or the banana, so I guess I'll leave those foods alone for a while. Also, I had some tomato-egg soup to help with the real protein content.
