Eating

I have been trying to reign in all.the.food. that I have been shoving in my face, so I have been using my old print-out from the protein filled Healthy Eating Made Easy meal plan (from Jessica Fisher’s blog). Month of Meals Meal Plans

I made this Carrot-Mango soup on Saturday, and leftovers for lunch which was a huge hit- surprisingly so too, since I really am not a fruit in my soup-gal! but it was spicy and sweet and had a great balance of flavors. Worth trying if you like soup!carrot mango coconut soup

For dinner tonight I am going to make this easy Skillet Chicken Parmesan  (from Iowa Girl Eats Blog), since I don’t want to bread it – that is sort of a stand by- for me, I don’t have it with pasta or cheese, but it is so easily adapted that I love including it for dinner.

Drinking

Water, Water and oh yeah…water. And Spark. I am still off coffee, and loving the Advocare Spark for my morning bit of a start! advocare spark

 

Watching

I think I have shared this with you before, but I think it might be my favorite show…

The Last Alaskans from the Discovery Channel is so calm and weirdly primal. I love doing my blogging work when I watch it- it is easy to not get too involved in a plot but still be totally entertained. It features 5 families that are in a remote area of Alaska and details their lives of hunting, gathering, and defending their cabins and selves from danger. So fun and respectful. Some of the other Alaska shows are really gross- like demeaning. This one is sort of awesome.

Reading

Oh my gosh, I have a lot of reading to do…. Stay tuned for my update next week. Right now I am in the middle of this one and loving it!:

It starts off pretty gruesome but it’s such a quick read that I can’t really stop myself! I am also listening to this, but I think it will be on hold as my commute-listening is taking a break until next week!

This was highly recommended to me by multiple people, so I am trying it- so far, so good! It is pulling me in and it’s paced nicely- good thing since it’s a long one!

Buying

All the things at CVS that I have needed and didn’t know it:

Razor blades, lotion, cards, poster board, cleaners, shampoo…you name it, it is on my list! I am not sure why I save it all up , but we are OUT of things! I know. Not too exciting, but that is our reality in this full house!

What have you been Eating, Drinking, Watching, Reading, Buying lately? I have been trying to keep track of the things I have been hearing that others just LOVE so I can amp up my gift-giving this year, so share all your great gift ideas in the comments, please!
