It’s a bit late and I have a little project I’d like to work on before the day is through, so I’m going to whiz you through today via the food I ate. I hope you will return again!
Overnight oats and fruit parfait.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 2/3 cup strawberry yogurt
- 1/2 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1/2 Tbsp. ground flax
- dash of salt
Fruit Salad (use the amounts you see fit or change completely if you wish!)
- blue berries
- Mix the overnight oats ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate… overnight
- In the morning, slice up the fruit into tiny bites and toss together.
- Layer the oat and fruit then enjoy!
What a great, cheery way to start the day!
Smoked salmon veggie loaded sandwich, cucumbers with yogurt dill dip, apricots, and lentil salad.
- Whole grain pumpkin seed bread
- spinach from my balcony garden
- shredded carrot
- smoked salmon
I’d like to interrupt this feast for the eyes with an announcement:
I love teaching kids about digital photography. They are just too darn cute with their little cameras.
I ate a ton of fresh strawberries with my class during fruit snack, but none were photographed. You all know what strawberries look like.
After school, I hit up the gym! I’ve been a bit lazy lately so kicked myself back into gear today. Wowza, I’ll probably be feeling sore tomorrow. :)
Grilled cheese and green beans
- cheddar cheese
- fresh tomato
- fresh basil
- Italian seasoning
- 2 slices whole wheat bread
- olive oil spread
It’s been a good day.
Now, I need your help.
I’ve volunteered to make treats for my colleagues baby shower on Wednesday. We’re having a small staff party during lunch. I had planned to make strawberry shortcake but now she has been diagnosed with prenatal diabetes and needs to lay off the sugar and is forbidden from eating anything made with white flour.
I love a good challenge!
Thanks to Happy Herbivore, I found several healthy recipes that fit the restrictive bill. I just need your help in choosing which is best for a pregnant lady and 30+ colleagues. I think I’ll bring a fruit salad but also want to do a baked treat.
Butter Bean Cookies (a practice batch of these are in the oven right now)
Thanks for your help!
Now, to send you off in high spirits, I’d like to share a funny photo from the public park by my school. For some reason, I have a strange passion for no dog-poop signs. It seems that I’ve been able to collect a few from every country I visit. Funny. Gross. But true.
It wasn’t until I saw this sign that I even realized we had a domesticated-fox-pooing problem.
