Hey My Beautifuls!
Thanks for all the Happy Birthday wishes! I actually haven’t had my birthday yet; my birthday is on Saturday, but I had to have my party a week before since I’m so busy this weekend. But thanks anyways! It really means a lot to me!
I also love how many of you love BOTH Chocolate and Vanilla! And I have to agree with you on that. Though, I personally think Chocolate Vanilla SWIRL is the best!
UPDATE ON MY CHALLENGE!
This past week with the Challenge, we focused on cutting out the sugar.
Since the time I cut out the processed sugar in my diet, I feel as though my taste buds have come ALIVE! Everything tastes better. I am fuller longer. The only kings of sweetener I use are fruit and stevia, so regular foods full of white sugar and such just don’t appeal to me anymore. I prefer FRUIT over any other kind of dessert!
I have also been drinking lemon water every morning since I’ve started the challenge, and I have already felt a difference! I must admit, I am more regular (sorry if that is TMI, but it’s the truth!). I hope to continue it through and after the challenge!
This coming week, I am going to focus on chewing my food properly. Sometimes with life, it can be easy to forget how essential chewing our food properly is to the digestion process. Since chewing is the first step of digestion, chewing my food properly is one of the first ways I can help. We are also going to cut out some of the gluten to see how we feel. This Challenge is all about finding that balance with yourself and your body. For some people, gluten bothers them and they don’t even know it. I’ll see how far I get with this one, since I love my Pizzerts so much! 🙂 At least Peanut Butter is Gluten Free! 🙂
I just received Unprocessed from my girl Wendy!!
And what luck! This WHOLE book is Gluten Free! 🙂 Just what I needed for this challenge!
Here’s the rest of the stuff Wendy sent me.
She is so generous! I received a notepad, a set of Dog cards, a set of Cooking cards, and a set of Owl cards! THANKS WENDY!! 🙂
Also, I’m joining up with Erin over at The Healthy Apron for MEAT-LESS MAY.
The concept is not to eat NO meat in May, it is just to eat LESS meat in May. We don’t necessarily have to eat meat at every meal for it to be a meal. There ARE amazing vegetarian/vegan meals that even the heaviest meat eaters would like!!! (check out some here, and here, and here)
Lookie who I found!!
These morning dove babies are SO cute!!! 🙂 And they are right in our backyard! They were just sitting there — gosh they are so photogenic. 🙂
Have you ever curled you hair with your flat-iron? It’s really fun! But for me, it is really hard to curl the back of my head — I just can’t see it!!!
What are some of your favorite protein sources? Bring on the dry-roasted soynuts for me!
Which do you prefer? Chocolate + Vanilla; plain Vanilla; or plain Chocolate.
