Roasted Beets, Kohlrabi, and Collards in Garlic and Oil

Next topic, sprint sometimes. The theory behind this is that back in the day our ancestors walked around a lot (gather) and sprinted to catch their food, or run from it (hunt). Now I am going to take a completely different approach to this topic, seeing as we aren't running for (or from) our dinner. But we do need to sprint sometimes. To the bank before it closes, to the kid's soccer game after a long day at work, to get that proposal in before the deadline. However I want to stress the "sprint sometimes", ironically because stress plays a huge factor.

If we don't induce ourselves with stress at any time, we can never prepare ourselves for when the situation might arise. If we don't train ourselves to sprint when we need to, we might get eaten by that lion. However, if we are always running, we can never realize the fruits of our labor. Life will become a whirlwind of activities and move by so quickly that you won't even remember the score of your son's basketball game because you're mind was "sprinting" over that proposal due the next day.

So, sprint to the bank before it closes so your finances are covered and you can relax with your family at home (instead of working two jobs and living in a run-down condo...).  Sprint home after a long day of work to take a stroll around the block with your wife. Sprint sometimes, so you can appreciate everything you have in your life.

I sprint to my CSA Monday's after the gym before pick up closes so I can enjoy the week's bountiful harvest. This dish is made up of all vegetables harvested off the farm (except the oil and Balsamic!) and is a wonderful side dish to a nice steak or char grilled chicken.
