So I was having a grand old day, getting things done hanging out with Sicily, until I saw an interesting soda ad…
If you can’t open the link it is a mother complaining that the government is going to start taxing juice drinks and sodas. I don’t know if this is due to the direct correlation of obesity and soda or it is another pro corn ad, but I thought it was ridiculous! You do not need soda and juice to live, ever heard of water?!?!
Here is the website list of supporters. There you will find major soda manufactures and petroleum producers. I am not really surprised by this. These are the same companies that made soda so cheap in the first place but using corn syrup and subsidizing it in the first place. Now they want to keep their product cheap so that they can still make money through other people.
OK that is enough of my rant…these are just my opinions and I do not try and put these opinions on other people.
One last tid bit. Did you notice the bags she was carrying were plastic and not the reusable type that the world is pushing for?
So for dinner I had no idea what to make, and then Nick asked me “what’s for dinner?” on the way home. I guess I had to hop to that!
I sliced up some tofu and put some honey S&P over them before entering the oven. I also threw on some butternut squash. I also had some wheat berries with spinach and goat cheese. I sort of burned a single piece of the tofu.
Nick and I are not settling down for some How I Met Your Mother and pear with tea.
I’ve got my plants packed up and little orange stickers on all of my cube items. Everything is packed away in blue bins and ready for transport.
Only problem…they aren’t being moved until Wednesday morning…We are packing computers and phones tomorrow so I am not really sure what the day will bring, but it should be interesting.
I had leftover wheat berry salad and chard along with my first pear of the season from the FM.
The cucs had gotten a little soggie but the wheat berries were still nice a chewy! I really need to make them more often. Check out this huge chard leaf.
After seeing this article pop up around blog land I knew I need to read it : Getting Real about the High Price of Cheap Food Similar notes as Food INC. but still very interesting. I also really enjoyed the embedded stories within the article, especially the ones that showed typical grocery hauls from around the world. Honestly these pictures really make Americans look like processed food pigs.
Snackage happened around 3:30 when I got bored/hungry. I had the typical blueberry oat round and orange seltzer…and of course I forgot to snap a shot.
Mondays are usually spin nights, but Nick and I are signing up for a new gym that is closer to the new apt tonight and if I wanted $60 off I had to go sign up today. I am hoping that I can get out of my current gym contract with some help from my 401K but we will see. Either way I will be saving money in the long run even if I have to spend a little extra right now. Before out apt. I had a cinnamon roll Larabar. ”Was that supposed to taste like a cinnamon roll?” That is what I was thinking after I ate it.
Smashed chicken breast with eggplant and Dinosaur BBQ sauce stacked on an Arnold Sami thin. I also had a salad with heirloom mater, pepper and cuc.
Time for the season finale of Weeds!
Woohoo Monday is over!
After breakfast I set to work packing up the kitchen. I don’t even have 1/2 my kitchen stuff in this house and yet I have so many bags packed! To fuel me through the packing I made a red and green or I guess brown smoothie. Frozen raspberries, baby spinach, vanilla protein powder and skim.
THE RUN – I made it and it went really well! Once I got to mile four everything was moving easily and I knew I was going to be able to do this! It feels so amazing to be able to run this far. I used to think 3 miles was the furthest I could ever run and now I have more than doubled that!
Post recovery drink I wanted to try out.
Check out this chard that I got at the farmers market!
Along with my chard I cooked up some wheat berries and mixed them with FM tomato, yellow pepper, cuc, Mrs. Dash original blend and parm cheese.
I think I am off to have a chocolate vitatop and some coffee fro-yo, ya know got to clean out the freezer
Ugh is tomorrow really Monday?!? At least I only have a four day week.
Have a super rest of your evening!
