I’ve started eating egg whites for most every breakfast. Usually I mix them with spinach and at times, other random veggies. It’s my favorite things currently. I had been in a cereal and oatmeal rut and since I’m trying to change things up and watch my sugar and carbs…egg whites it is. The spinach started out as a “I really need to get some more iron into my diet” but then I realized how much I liked it in eggs. I’m now obsessed. It’s a fast fix in the morning when I’m trying to get out to door and to work.
Check out that little Old El Paso Stand n Stuff soft tortilla. I know this is still carbs but bread can be so heavy at times that I’m doing this instead. I’m really trying to get back in the habit of eating healthier and working in more vegetables.
We’ve got lots of yellow squash and zucchini coming in from the garden. So much so that we’ve been having it for dinner nearly every night and for lunch, and we still have had to put some in freezer bags. This is not a bad problem to have. Our tomatoes and such haven’t really started producing anything we can pick yet but it should be soon. We also planted a couple of pepper varieties, eggplant, cucumbers, green beans, and a few different herbs. I really wanted okra but got outvoted because it’s “hard to maintain”. Fresh veggies are one of my favorite parts of summer.
I did 4.5 miles on the treadmill on Saturday while watching Sense & Sensibility. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but our treadmill is in the garage which is both good and bad. The heat is terrible but it does make me sweat more so that isn’t completely a bad thing. Sunday was lazy though. My mother and I continued our season 2 watch of Pretty Little Liars. It’s her first time and she has fifty million questions I refuse to answer. I’m waiting to watch season 6 until she finishes the rest of the seasons. I can’t wait to see what is happening on new episodes.
Last Thursday I started reading It Starts with Food. I’ve been taking notes for future reference and will probably post about it on here and my book blog. I’m fascinated by what I’ve read so far and I’m hoping I can get more of my family on board with it.
Look how cute this dress is!!! I know this is completely random and not related to anything else in this post but I had to share. Forever 21 has cute reasonably priced clothing. I really wish my local store stocked their Plus attire. I can wear ‘regular’ sizing in some brands but I don’t even attempt it with F21. Their stuff is teeny but so cute. Ordering online is always hard because you never really know what size to order, depending on how an item fits.
