Happy Labor Day

Hello everyone, sorry I haven't been around much I have had a hard time posting this last week. Everything in my life is good I've just been cranky and irritated, it must be hormones and the usual stress. I don't know what is up with my weight but I've been trying to get lots of fiber in. I've also started taking probiotics again and that seems to be helping. I went to pick up some more chia seeds and they were out :( probably because they were on sale, so I picked up some shelled hemp seeds. Which I have been adding to my salads.

Hulled Hemp Seed"Hemp seed may be one of nature's most perfect foods. With a pleasant nut-like flavor and creamy texture, our hulled hemp seed is a nutritious and delightful addition to cereals, salads and baked goods. Hulled hemp seed is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids and an excellent source of protein- containing all of the essential amino acids. "

Today I am hoping to have a nice relaxing day reading, baking, maybe some shopping. Saturday I went to Boarders to see if there was anything I wanted since they are going out of business and I got Drink This Not That by David Zinczenko and the Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. Both books have a lot of helpful things to say about sugar and at 60% off I felt they were worth buying.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor day, keep it belly good friends :)


  1. I've missed your posts! It seems like we all go through those weeks, it's the ones of us that jump back in, that will be successful! It's bizarre because sometimes I feel like this is the easiest thing I have ever done, and then I feel like I really, really want something bad for me.
    I really do think fiber is key and it is like a light bulb going off when I realize it. The PB cookies that Dawn made were great for my Fiber source and it didn't occur to me until last night when I hadn't had them for 2 days.
    Have a relaxing, enjoyable day.
    Don't worry, be happy:)

  2. HI Katie, Have a good day too :-)

  3. HI Katie. I've been away for awhile too. So busy with work and then we were away for the holiday weekend. Let me know how the Kind Diet is. I saw her on a TV show and what she said really made sense. I forget what recipe she brought ( maybe brownies?) but everyone rave about how good they were. Take care and have a good weeek.

  4. Hi Katie, Boy I've had weeks like that too! You know, just kind of Blah. It's weird that you posted about the shelled hemp seeds, because I was just researching them. They are supposed to be really good for you - a perfect protein. I was thinking about picking some up. Let me know what you think about them! Hope this week is a better one for you!

  5. I bought some hemp protein powder a few weeks ago, and wasn't really happy with it. I will definitely need to dress it up a bit. Let me know how you like the seeds themselves. Have a great day!
