Good news for today! I can add graphics even though my pictures won’t work. Until I figure this out I have a huge supply of graphics that I can use.
I almost hated to put a picture of snow on my journal today but they were so pretty that I went ahead and did just that.
We are having a January thaw here. Yesterday we managed to get above freezing for the first time in over a month and the sun was out. It sure did perk me up to see that blue sky and sunshine.
For the next few days we’ll be warmer so I expect a lot of our snow will melt. There is plenty out there to go so it’ll take awhile.
Ma’s Tip for Today
Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants
We often grab a snack when we are too busy to cook or in between meals when we are hungry and meal time is far away. Here are some healthy snacking ideas to tide you over.
Spread 1 tablespoon of cashew butter on a slice of Ryvita Fruit Crunch. (Or substitute peanut butter and Triscuits.) Drizzle with ½ tablespoon honey and top with sliced strawberries.
Roll a thin slice of prosciutto or ham around a part-skim mozzarella string cheese. Eat with a few olives and grapes
Combine about ¼ cup dried pineapple pieces with about 25 pistachio nuts
Slice an apple, such as Fuji or Granny Smith, and top with ½ cup of low-fat cottage cheese. Or replace the fresh apple with two drained cinnamon-spiced apple rings.
There are a lot of ways we can eat a little wiser, if we think about it.
Have a great Thursday everyone!
