Wanted to list out the rest of the day so far:
It is snowing outside and accumulating fast. I went to do some orders and pick up some produce for this week and part of next. I got mesclun mix, spinach, kale, radish sprouts, bananas, strawberries (on sale) and zucchini (so the kids can make their "paleo" brownies - this cracks me up because nobody was making brownies in paleolithic times.) :-) Oh yes, and more brussels sprouts. I've been loving brussels sprouts so much these days.
I made the kids a vegan mac/cheese with quinoa pasta and a cheesy sauce that they seem to like a lot. I ate a few bites of it and then made my lunch of:
raw cheddary cheeze spread
a few pieces of marinated eggplant bacon.
Rolled it all up and ate it. YUM. That is yummy and satisfying. We went to walk the dogs after lunch. It is slippy out and very cold. The temperature is WAY warmer today than last week, but the wetness of the snow makes it almost as cold to bear as -10-20 degree weather (almost). So I didn't stay out long - just long enough for one of the dogs to pee. (My son stayed with the 2nd dog because they both had a need to run around.) Then I went to do the orders and take them to the post office.
Got back with all the produce and needed to make room in the fridge so I made a green juice of:
a bunch of parsley
a bag of pea shoot sprouts
1 head of kale
1/2 head lettuce
2 green apples
The three of us drank it and it was very good, although heavy on the parsley taste.
So that's the food update so far. I feel pretty good today. Greens and veggies always feel the best to me. I'm delighted about the morning smoothie, too - it was good for my kids to get some fruit in them and I'm tickled pink that they drank the juice, too.
