Back from our get away

Hello everyone, our mini get away was wonderful. We left early on Saturday and got to Seattle by early afternoon, we went to Pikes Place Market which is so much fun! It seems there is always some fruit and veggies that I have never seen and hubby and I like to try new things. Last time we bought fiddle head ferns, this time we bought garlic spears.  Fiddle heads are the furled fronds of a young fern and have a grassy taste. Garlic spears are the flowery tops of the elephant garlic plant they have a spicy garlic flavor.

Now that we back it's time to get a little stricter on the bfc. I haven't been tracking my food or fiber for awhile but it's time to start again, I haven't been very regular and my weight is up 4.4 lbs :( I am going to be super good this week and hopefully the extra weight is just false belly fat and bloat. Well, I guess that's all for now I am working early today so I have to go and make  a belly good breakfast and lunch. I hope everyone has a wonderful belly good Tuesday :)



  1. Hi Katie, your new food looks really interesting. I bet most of the 4.4 is bloating. I know I always get bloated on vacation. Up that fiber intake & water & it will be gone in no time. Have a great Tuesday. Take care.

  2. Glad you had a good trip! Enjoy your garlic spears!!!

  3. So glad you had a nice time on your trip! As a garlic lover I have to tell you those garlic spears look good. What are you going to do with them?

  4. I have had fiddlehead ferns in restaurants, but not the garlic spears. Let us know what you make with them!

  5. HI Katie, You 2 look so cute in your picture. I have never tried either one of those 2 things before, and I am quite adventurous as far as food goes. Let us know how they are.
    Have a great day :-)

  6. You look so cute in your picture! The weight will come back off as soon as you get back on track:) You are way more adventurous with food than I am!
    I love Pike's Market. Did you get flowers? They are so beautiful there!
