Ugh. I’m tried man.
Even though this week FLEW by, I felt it was all I could do to keep up.
I had this crazy ass dream last night that I was working for a new company and I was kinda walking around the building, getting a feel for the place and stumbled into this simulation room.
The engineers there had the task of testing out the heart product this company made, in a simulated environment. They didn’t actually make artificial hearts, I think they made something that attached onto the heart.
Anyway, I walked in and introduced myself and shared a bit about my background so they could understand why I was hired and then asked them if they could demonstrate through simulation, what their product did and how it worked.
That’s when shit got cray cray.
They said the most common use of their heart product was in soldiers at war.

Wait – what’s this…

I pulled it out to thaw, ate a banana and went back to bed.
A few hours later, I was ready to create.
This can really be made with any ground meat.
Turkey, Chicken, Beef, Bison…
It’s not as filling for a main meal but eating enough of them does a good job of keeping hunger at bay. Plus, this is a super easy thing to make and is relatively healthy for you.
Can’t beat that, right?
