I need practice at titles title

Title is a funny word if you say it too many times.

I can never think of a catchy title. I need to work on it asap.

Tonight I am trying my hand at making vegan garlic scape pesto. I am bringing it to a ladies dinner party that I am going to tomorrow. I am very exited to make the vegan parm!! I am going to have pasta for dinner tonight just so I can eat it.

One of these days I am going to learn how to blog for real. I have no clue how to link my reference to other blogs or to get other people to actually read my blog? Probably if I wasn't trying to squeeze my post into my lunch break I would be better at it.

Monday, Monday, Monday


½ cup Oatmeal cooked with 1 cup water
1 Stevia packet
½ cup frozen blueberries
2 chunks banana


Wheat Bagel (plain)


Ezekiel wrap
Homemade black bean burger
Pineapple Salsa
Baby Spinach


Mushroom Stroganoff (Ornish recipe)
Brown Rice
Brussels Sprouts

The black bean burgers that I had for lunch was a recipe from Angela at Oh She Glows. They were the best homemade black bean burgers I have ever made. It was so good with the pineapple salsa! I wish I had brought two with me to work! Tonight I am trying a new recipe by Dr. Dean Ornish....Mushroom Stroganoff. It sounds like it's going to be delish.

This was a great weekend. They always o by so fast though. Football coaches party on Friday night, Park Ave Fest on Saturday and dinner at a friend’s and then Eclipse with a girl friend yesterday. I really liked Eclipse. I think these movies keep getting better and better. I can’t wait for the next one. Tonight while Josh and John are at football Caleb and I are going to start cleaning out the basement. Hasn’t had a whole over hall in a couple of years. It’s going to be quite the chore, ugh.

Days 7, 8, 9 & 10

Ooops, haven't blogged in a bit. So the fast that was supposed to be on Sunday didn’t work out exactly as planned. We hosted an impromptu bbq and several shots of rum somehow ended up in the cranberry juice that I was using for the fast. I ended up doing the fast on Monday, but I probably wrecked the whole detox thing by drinking the rum. Oh well. I gained back a couple of pounds but that last 2 days have been back on and have evened out to 8# loss so far. This is the last official day of the detox. Tomorrow I will be back to eating pretty much vegan (debating on the wild caught fish…???) and counting calories, ughhhh.


1 Apple
1 cup Kefir with blueberries and cherries


¼ cup chick peas with Cajun Seasoning


2 piece salmon
1 medium squash
2 cups salad greens
*Plain-no dressing


2 hardboiled eggs

This has been the first week of Josh’s football conditioning. Means for late nights and late dinners. The boys don’t usually get home until 9:00. I try and eat whatever I am going to have right when I get home from work so I’m not eating so late. I have been walking everyday with my mom or a friend while they are at football just to get a little extra workout in.
