Hello Blog World! How was everyone’s Holiday weekend?
Mine was great! My parents came to visit Andy and I for the weekend from Cincinnati. Saturday night we went to a minor league baseball game and had dinner at Red Robin (I love this place!). Andy’s parents came along too, so it was nice to have everyone together. For dinner I had a big ol’ Blue Moon beer to drink, a cup of the chicken tortilla soup and split a BBQ chicken wrap with my mom, which came with fries. I also had a few onion rings that my dad ordered as an appetizer for everyone. Ahh, greasy pre-game food! Love it!
Sunday I made us all veggie omelets before we went shopping for the day. My parents bought Andy and I new stools for our kitchen and a little table for our patio outside as a house warming gift.
Sunday night we relaxed as we ate DQ Blizzards and watched “Date Night” (very cute!). Dairy Queen has new mini blizzards, which are definitely a great idea. However, when I eat a blizzard I want the real deal. Mini just aint’ gonna cut it for this girl. Medium all the way for me! 😉
I feel like I’m totally kicking it old school with this one! Since living with Andy I’ve developed a lot of new habits. One being his Ovaltine habit. At first I laughed at him because he’s a 26 year old man drinking Ovaltine. But then I had a taste of his ice cold glass and I just had to make my own. This stuff is amazing! I’ve been drinking it almost every night mixed with 1% or 2% milk. Heaven!
I know a lot of bloggers use this already in their smoothies and I have to say I am a fan. I like the fact that I am getting some of the same nutritional properties and benefits of superfoods from scoop of powder. Sure, it’s always best to eat a variety of veggies and fruits, but I like this as my ‘back up’ for those days I don’t get my 5-9 servings.
I’ve been drinking this stuff every morning with the rest the supplements I take (Multivitamin, Fish Oil, supplement for joints, and probiotics) and feel better over all. Is it the Amazing Grass Superfood? Who knows, but all I know is that I’ve been feeling great for the last few months since I have been consistent with my vitamins and supplements. I used to just take them when I remembered, but now it’s a habit.
I found this little gem of a cereal at my neighborhood Marc’s grocery store. Marc’s is a discount store, so the cereal there is always a lot cheaper vs the regular grocery store. I tried Bumpers a few weeks ago and now I am completely addicted. These lil’ guys are great! I like to mix them with a higher fiber cereal and fruit for breakfast, which makes for a filling meal. I’ve tried the chocolate kind too, but the peanut butter are definitely better!
