Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Under the weather

Where's all this snow they keep talking about?

Sorry I left you all high and dry yesterday, I wasn’t feeling too hot. In fact, I called out sick today because I can’t seem to shake it. Thank you all for the support around finding a therapist. You guys are like cheerleaders, everyday, and it is truly amazing. To anyone who doesn’t have a blog, you should start one and reap the rewards.

Last nights eats were pretty boring so I didn’t bother taking pictures. For dinner I ate more roasted veggies and soy nuggets. For snacks I ate hummus with broccoli and carrots &  spicy blue corn chips. I shouldn’t say boring since everything was delish but nothing new or noteworthy.

Let’s talk organics for a second. I am just loving my Boston Organics package and am doing a great job of eating things up…. except the Kale. Sadly, it’s wilting in the fridge. For some reason I cannot get myself to do anything with it. More importantly,  it kills me that so many of our organic products are being bought out by larger companies. I try like hell not to buy Tyson or Purdue products but often wonder if I’m purchasing them without really knowing it. A few days ago I bought organic milk for the boyfriend and got annoyed at the idea that some big ass company might be profiting. What gives?

Have you guys seen precious yet? I can’t believe that movies slipped right by me without being viewed. Shameful. I’ve heard it’s extremely intense and I fully accept that I’ll tear through a box of tissues. Then again, I cry at every movie. Literally.

P.S. I’ll be having an exciting giveaway in the next couple of weeks…just waiting on a delivery. Oh the anticipation.

  1. oohhh… sorry to hear you’re feeling under the weather!

    And I really want to see Precious- but I’ve seen so many sad movies recently in the theater (still getting over Brothers and Revolutionary Road), that I promised myself to make the next one a little more light-hearted! 🙂

  3. You can cut the kale up into chips, massage with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and bake them in the oven to make chips!

  4. I hope you are feeling better soon – no fun!! I second the kale chip idea – plus it’s an excuse to eat ketchup 😉

  7. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well 😦 Use the day to get some rest! I haven’t seen Precious, either. I’m a movie cryer too!

  8. Make kale chips! Delicious, seriously! (and great to dip in ketchup)

    Feel better!

  9. I hate the big companies too. They’re jerks and it bothers me that they can own the smaller products that you THINK would be safe from the bigger corporations.

    Maybe you can try steaming the kale with lemon juice? Or something? Haha.. I usually don’t buy kale because the same thing that’s happening to yours, usually happens to mine. It wilts because I can’t get myself to use it.

    I hope you feel better soon! Get lots of vitamin C and kill that cold. 🙂

  10. Kale is also great in soup…especially with garlic, onion, tomatoes, and white beans
