Health Filled Friday
With the encouragement and support of others (thanks Lori, Kat, and Cathy!), I am rebooting sugar-free living. The last few weeks have been over-full with meetings and work projects. I start the day well with a good breakfast and a packed lunch but by the time evening rolls around, I am looking for something sweet. Fortunately we don't buy cookies or ice cream so it isn't in the house. My go to evening snack these day is a sliced apple with cashew butter (a recent discovery at Trader Joe's). Today I made a green drink to take to work for my snack (love this site for new recipe ideas). This one has pears, spinach, almond milk, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamon - doesn't that sound yummy! And this weekend I am going to try and make a pumpkin puree to use in a shake for the pumpkin spice taste without the sugar.
It has been wet, wet, wet, but today I am taking my running gear (hat and rain jacket too) because I am determined to get to the trail.
Have a health-filled Friday.
