Happy Spring!

Posted on

Today has been flying by!

So fast, that I even missed my mid-morning snack…oops!

And spring has officially sprung!  Happy first day of spring!!

The bush outside of our apartment has officially bloomed 🙂

I made up for the lack of snack (I am a poet and I didn’t even know it…) with a delicious lunch of salmon salad.  In my salmon salad I included:

  • Celery
  • Red onion
  • Orange bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup Fage Total 0% Greek yogurt (the secret ingredient that replaces mayo, it adds in a secret hint of protein)
  • 1/4 cup canned salmon
  • 1/4 cup chickpeas
  • Pepper to taste
  • Garlic salt to taste

On the side I had celery sticks (my fave!) and part of an orange tomato.  Is it just me, or do orange tomatoes taste better than red tomatoes?  😉

 

Celery sticks are honestly one of my favorite veggies.  I just love how crunchy they are and the fact that they are great dippers and they are great to eat plain as well!  On the cruise ship, I NEVER had celery sticks…literally, so I have been missing my little green sticks of joy.

 

What is your favorite veggie?? 

  • Like I said above, I have always loved celery

How do you like to eat your favorite veggie??

  • Although I love it plain, my favorite way to eat it is with peanut butter 🙂

Friday Happiness and Headin’ Home Again

Posted on

Today is just a beautiful Friday outside!  Work went by suuupper fast, and by the time I got home I was hungry…not famished.  Looks like it is a great day so far.

I made myself a blueberry smoothie and actually drank it through a straw rather than eating it out of a bowl like ice cream.  I also had celery sticks and hummus, and a couple of nut handfuls that went undocumented.

Now, it is time to pack for Fort Wayne once again…gotta looove packing 😉 This weekend is my best friend from high school Chelsea’s bachelorette party!  I have never been to one and I am so excited.

Don’t forget about the giveaway!  You only have til midnight 🙂
