I made quinoa salad the other night. I put tomatoes, olives, carrots, red onions & bell pepper in it this time.
My brother heard somewhere that local honey helps with allergies. After being sick on vacation yet again I decided to try it. It can't hurt.
Last night I didn't feel like chicken leftovers so I had scrambled eggs with deli turkey & an avocado.
I was reading Tina's blog the other day & she had a recipe for a smoothie that I thought sounded good.
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1.25 cups almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon (I never measure cinnamon I just sprinkle it in)
I blended it all up in my Magic Bullet & it was delicious! I've always wondered about smoothies with avocados & spinach & kale. I just don't think I want to drink any of it especially at breakfast. Well, the smoothie tasted like banana. I plan to buy some spinach & try one of the green smoothies everyone talks about.
I have lots of weird little food things about me. Like when I eat cereal I only want a tiny bit of milk in the bowl because I don't want the cereal to get soggy. Well, now that I've been drinking almond milk I don't have that problem. I've been buying Cascadian Farms granola cereal (LOVE LOVE LOVE - seriously could probably eat the whole box in one sitting but that would totally negate the health benefits of granola), anyway, when I eat it I want to eat cereal like a normal person with a bowl of milk. I never use to likedpeanut butter unless it was with Chocolate like a peanut butter cup. Any of y'all do weird things like that?
Another thought I'm having right now is about the $629 I have to pay for my mammogram & ultrasound that I had in January. UGH! I have a job & pay for health insurance & I still have to pay that. So annoying. Insurance is such a racket. Do you know how many things I could buy with $629??? At LEAST 629 different things.
