Good (chilly) morning!!
It's -10 here this morning, that does not happen here, that's soo cold!! I was super happy I could stay in bed and read
10,000000000 blogs! There are so many fantastic bloggers out there!!
I should really start a blog roll, to show some love..
Now I am happily writting this blog and watching "You are what you eat" If you have never seen it it's a great show!! It maybe a little extreme, but it's great!!
Anywhoo, after reading lots of blogs this morning, I found TONS of giveaways and I am planning on sharing with you lovelies!! Also an amazing grass discount! :) (there is a link my sidebar for the site)
I will get to all that stuff...
Yesterday I made peppermint crunch cookies.
Basically you just take any sugar cookie recipe and add crunched up candy canes. Yum...
I subbed the butter for apple sauce.
I used 1/2 ww flour + 1/2 white flour instead of all flour.
They were pretty good. They didn't have sugar cookie flakiness but they were good!!
After cookie baking, it was onto dinner.
I wasn't tooo hungry since maybe I ate a few cookies (someone had to try them out)
But I made a burger full of veggies and hummus
The burger was yummy, it was one of the super lean presidents choice burgers.
Downside - I ate red meat two times today... not smart, my tummy was not happy.
Today is going to be a meat free day!!
I started off today with a yummy green monster;
small handful of almonds
3 frozen strawberries
1/2 a banana
1 scoop wheat grass
1/2 scoop berry kids flavor amazing grass just for a bit of extra flavor
Whizzzzzzzzzzzz it up in the magic bullet blender!
Yummy, I love the addition of the date.
I have to be honest, I was not into drinking this this morning, it's so cold I wanted something warm.
But now I'm glad I did!!

I have read and heard from my homeopathic doctor that lightly steamed spinach is best because raw can deplete calcium. I eat raw in salads, and steamed in my GM.ReplyDelete
Those cookies look great - love the idea of adding candy cane!
