Easy homemade muesli bars <3
Recipe on the blog:
A bit of a different take on pad Thai, but still just as yummy
- 1/8 cup of soy sauce
- 1/8 cup of tomato sauce
- 1/8 cup of lime juice
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 3 cloves of crushed garlic
- 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon of chilli relish
I just fried tofu and onion in the sauce, and then added cooked rice noodles with spring onion and topped with pine nuts (or crushed peanuts) and English spinach.
So I was reading stories about runners who made insane comebacks, and I stumbled upon this woman right here, and just had to share.
This is Ana Quirot, a Cuban mid-distance runner. Her first inspiring trait (to me) is the fact that despite being only 5’3”, she ran a 1:58 or faster. But the best part of her story of course lays in her comeback.
In 1993, while doing laundry (due to a soap shortage she was forced to use isopropyl alcohol), there was an explosion, burning over 1/3 of her body severely. She was seven months pregnant at the time, and the baby did not survive. She wasn’t supposed to, either, but after two months of being Hospitalized, she returned to exercise biking. Although she had very little elasticity in her skin and couldn’t lift her hand over her head, she never gave up, and only 2 years later, she won first place in BOTH the 800 and 400 m races at the 1995 world championships. I feel like out of all the epic comeback stories out there, this definitely ranks in the top three.
