Summer already

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Friday was the first day of summer. Wow here in South Texas the Temp is always hot. Ok in the winter it is cool. So summer means 100+.

I love walking. I wanted on Friday to walk 10 miles. I woke up and my foot was hurting. I think I pulled something swimming. So Saturday I walked only 8 miles. Still I am proud 8 miles is great. And I can still walk around the house. My foot still hurts but only when I stretch it like a ballerina.

On Friday I went to the health food store and was looking at the Vegetable Protein. I had read an article about the Amazing Grass Shakes. I love trying new things in the summer. I thought maybe protein shakes would be a good fast breakfast when school starts again.
So I looked for the Amazing Grass Protein. I got a sample of some veg. protein. I mixed it with almond milk and a few fresh strawberries. It tastes OK. It reminded me of the days when my mom got me the Shaklee protein drinks. Later in the day I started sneezing. My eyes started to water and I was just sneezing. Oh yea!!! I am allergic to most common grasses. Got some decongestion the sneezing stopped.
Well I guess veg. protein will not work for me.
My friends were right eating grass is not for me.

    Allergies are annoying. I hope you feel better!
    I'm having plantar fasciitis issues with my left foot. Keep an "eye" on your pain. I'd hate for you to do more damage if it's something serious like a stress fracture or the like.
    I've been putting kale into my smoothies. Here's the recipe: 1/2 c packed kale, 1/2 c plain lowfat yogurt, 1/4 c part skim ricotta cheese, 1 c frozen mixed berries, 1 T ground flax seed, 1/4 t cinnamon, and 1/2 c water. Put is all in a blender and process until smooth. Have a great day!
