Be proud of who you are...

Once again, that was my Yogi tea wisdom today "Be proud of who you are"   I get excited in the morning to make my tea just to see what it tells me!! :)   I got a good one last night too... "An attitude of gratitude brings opportunities"  Love it! 

First off I have to say THANK YOU  for all the comments yesterday.  It seems so silly to be so excited about it, but it honestly makes my day!  Do any of you other bloggers feel the same way?  I'm also happy to say today is my 1 month blog anniversary and I've had over 850 visits to my blog!!  You guys rock my socks!! 

So many cool things have happened since I started blogging!!
  • I am 100% in love with green monsters - my energy is through the roof, my finger nails are the longest and strongest they have ever been, my skin feels super soft and I feel like my normal nutty self again.
  • I am challenged every day to eat healthy (and clean) just so I can blog about it!!
  • I've met lots of cool people in blogger world
  • I realized how much I love taking pictures *note to self, must shop for after Christmas sales for a good camera* 
  • I have learned about so many yummy foods, and all the benefits of eating such food - chia seeds, amazing grass, green tea, pumpkin, oatmeal.  
  • I just love writing and learning together all the great things about being dairy free!! 
  • Oh and I've bought some cool dishes, just for pictures!! hehe..*note to self again - must shop for after Christmas sales for a house with more kitchen cabinets! hehe
Besides that I found some really cool links today... 

Make your own pumpkin butter (mom you will love this!) This stuff looks amazing - if only I could find canned pumpkin at the grocery store... I've searched and searched but cannot find??  Any ideas?

Create an allergy card-this looks AMAZING - type in your allergy and the language where you are travelling and you can print out a card that you can give in restaraunts etc.  thanks to "Go Dairy Free" for this! 

!#@^@#@^@CANADIAN GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!!&$%@$#@  - if you win you have to share with me, because I am desperate to try these - (but the shipping is too rich for my unemployed butt these days)

So besides all that excitement!! 

The weather here is icky... Another beautiful west coast winter day!!  
Liquid sunshine - that's what I have learned to call it, so I don't get down!!  Hehe..

  Remember this photo from early late September?? Our beautiful backyard!!
Well this is what it looks like this morning.   And it's 9am- it's its as light as it's going to get!!

I could easily live somewhere that was warm and sunny all year long!!

Makes me want to cozy up and never leave the house!!

Well yesterday was a busy day day and I only got a chance to take a picture of my yummy lunch

Salmon with mayo, kale and green onions (from the garden), cucumbers and brown rice crackers!
It was soo good, I'm probably going to have it again today. 

I also had a fantastic green monster for breaky this morning - 1/2 banananananana, frozen strawberries, spinach, peanut butter, a wee bit of honey and chia seeds...   Oh and almond milk...
It was super fantastic and filling!!  I would have taken a picture, but it looked like swamp mud!!

Well today is another busy day, so I must get choppin'

Have a fantastic day and "Be proud of who you are" because I (and many other people I'm sure) think you are fantastic!!
