Happy Friday All!
It's been a long week & I'm looking forward to relaxing this weekend. I'm going to run errands & get some shopping done. For sure, I'm going to get up to the farmers market & load up on veggies & fruits. I'm wanting to SPREAD MY WINGS & expand my palate! So I'm looking for new & exciting taste sensations!
I've been trying something new each time I visit the market, & so far I've been pleased. On the last visit, I bought almond butter. I need to take in more"good" fats & so I thought I'd give it a try. My daughter uses it & encouraged me to try it. I put 1 tbsp on a mini bagel & I have to admit it was quite tasty.
Let's see...I've tried greek yogurt the visit before. Now, this I LOVE & am using daily! I've tried a couple different brands & they've all been delicious!
I've tried steel cut oats a time before that. Mmmmmm...was delish w/honey! Very filling & satisfying too! I just need to make certain I have time to COOK it in the morning!
I've also tried flaxseed, which I've ground up & keep in the frig. The first day I used it...I added 2 tbsp to my yogurt (so okay, I read it was a "serving size") along with the fruit, go lean crunch, & walnuts. Um, I quiiiickly found out that I should have started out SLOWLY & worked UP to 2 tbsp, 'cause it went RIGHT THROUGH ME! I now use 1 tbsp. daily...
If anyone has suggestions on what I should try next, please share!! I'm open to trying new foods/fruits/veggies! As they say...VARIETY is the SPICE of LIFE!
Well, I look forward to reading your ideas! Thanks for reading this & have a glorious weekend! Keep Sparkin!
