I felt much better today! Thanks for all the love yesterday! =)
I started with a great bowl of 8 grain cereal.
I topped it with cinnamon, flax meal, raisins and maple syrup. Yum!
Then I got thinking and made some White Bean and Kale Soup!
You need to make this soup – so simple and so healthy! I had this bowl for lunch then another bowl a few hours later.
I was on a cooking spree and roasted up some parsnips and carrots, too.
I used 2 carrots, 2 parsnips, large chunk of yellow onion, EVOO, dried parsley, dried dill, salt and pepper. I covered a baking sheet for 8 minutes, then uncovered for another 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Done.
I finished up a small embroidery project that I am going to send to my Grandma – cute little towels for her kitchen.
I just made the two so far but I am planning on making the entire week for her. She will absolutely love them!
I even went to the gym this afternoon despite my cold. I went not really knowing hoe much I could handle. I ended up running 5.5 miles in 55 minutes. I was amazed and felt awesome! I was literally in shock by how powerful my legs felt.
I snacked on a handful of almonds before putting J to bed then I made myself a glorious salad and toast.
Today was a great day!
Here are some picture if J when we went to visit my mom on Sunday. It was such a beautiful day! He loved running around the yard.
J and my mom running around =)
He loves his Grandma!
A treasure to a little boy does not consist of money, gems or jewelry. He will find far greater pleasure in the wonder of a rock, pebble, stick or beetle.
