Lent Day 31 and 32

I’m sipping homemade ginger tea this morning…so yummy! and thinking about the past couple days…

Friday (Day 31) was the usual Friday coffee party issue…However, it was my departments turn, so I brought fresh veggies and dip that I’d made. The big change that occurred on Friday was the Hungry for Change movie…my husband and kids watched it during the day and I watched it in the evening. To say it changed our thinking is an understatement…It inspired us to change our eating habits for good, not just Lent…I write more about how I spent my Saturday morning on our Simple Spring Cleanse blog: Letting Go of Poor Eating Habits

Friday Menu:

Breakfast: smoothie

a.m. snack: veggies and dip I’d made

Lunch: crackers and the last of the guacamole

p.m. snack: canteloupe

Supper: BLT sandwich on one of those triangle whole grain buns

Dessert: a refined sugar free cookie that one of our friends made to share at movie night

Saturday (Day 32) We were happily surprised with a visit yesterday afternoon from my parents. We talked a lot about food actually, which was cool. We were so lucky growing up to have fresh food from the garden, milk straight from the cow, eggs from our chickens and pork and beef that we’d raised ourselves. I will strive to give my kids as close to this as I can.

My parents eat very traditional foods; but they are learning to branch out and enjoy others. For dinner yesterday I shared our quinoa salad recipe with them. I’m pretty sure my Dad had three helpings of it… šŸ™‚ and Mom had a couple as well. The kids were excited to share this very cool and very good for you food with their grand-parents. It was a really great visit. I’m also only drinking 1 latte per day these past few days…

Saturday Menu:

Breakfast: smoothie

a.m. snack: missed this

Lunch: we juiced some of our yummy fruit

p.m. snack: snacking on veggies!

Supper: turkey breast, spinach strawberry salad with homemade raspberryĀ vinaigretteĀ and Greek quinoa salad with feta and lemon balsamic dressing that we’d made

Dessert: coconut chocolate pudding that I was showing mom how I make and I did sneak in have a hot cross bun that mom had brought! šŸ˜›

I made some lime zest water and drank a lot of that yesterday too! Stay tuned for the post for today: Day 33!

Our yummy, colorful grocery shopping trip – this was what we brought home:
