Another Monday is upon us and it was really hard for me to get up this morning thanks to Sissy laying on my back. She is an expert and waking you up and knows exactly what the alarm means…"I am going to sit on the night stand and stare at you until you get up and feed me!
Last night’s dinner was different and boring. I was just something I was craving and wanted to eat.
Toast, nut butters, banana, spouts, kale.
I ended my night watching Planet Earth Extremes and there is a new series coming out called “Life”, I am excited for it!
For breakfast this morning I finally gave into my cold cereal craving…sort of.
I also had pumpkin yogurt on the bottom to finish off the can.
Big news in Baltimore County!!!! We now have one stream recycling! Everything in one bin. Sounds simple, but it takes so long for them to figure it out!
And now it is that time again…Food Rule of the day brought to you by Michael Pollan! Rule #12 Shop the peripheries of the supermarket and stay out of the middle. Just be careful of some of the yogurts and other items along the edge that seem to have picked up good old HFCS and the “lite” butters, cream cheeses and other dairy products.
Time to get some pep in my step!
Here’s to a speedy Monday!
Happy Freeeeeezing Friday!!!!!!!!
There is a snow storm heading this way and the temps are dropping! The heat is on and I needed something warmish for breakfast.
- 1/4 cup quinoa
- 1 tbs oat bran
- 1 tbs blueberry jam
- 1 tbs flax
- 2 tbs unsweetened coconut
I added the oat bran to see if it helps with the staying power. I still plopped it on top of pumpkin yogurt with not only plain Stonyfield, pumpkin and spices, I also added some dried blueberries and chia seeds. I think I actually liked the pumpkin butter better than the blueberry jam, but it is still tasty!
Time for the Friday Food Rule of the day brought to you by Michael Pollan! Food Rule #11: Avoid Foods You See Advertised on Television. This one really stuck with me. Most of the food I can recall seeing on TV is fast food. We already know those are not so hot for you, but if you turn on a children’s channel there are tons of sugar laden foods advertised ie. pop tarts, lucky charms (not like I didn’t eat some of this as a child). Think! I think Florida or California citrus or dairy may be the only produce I have ever seen on TV.
Movin on out!
