Memorial Day & a Giveaway!

Here is what we ate today....

Breakfast - Oatmeal with flax, almond butter, raw almond slices and a little maple syrup

Lunch - Chipotle with the gang

Dinner - All beef, organic hot dogs and wonderful side salads.

The first was a recipe (Summer Vegetable Potato Salad) I found in the latest issue of Better Homes & Gardens. It was good, but not make-again good. The inspiration I did get was to throw in some raw corn in my next potato salad. What a wonderful crunch it added.

The next salad was something I threw together with some leftover quinoa I had. It was about 2 cups quinoa mixed with cucumber, grape tomatoes, parsley and raw sunflower seeds. The dressing was the juice of 1 lemon, a couple glugs of olive oil, salt and 1 crushed garlic clove. I liked this one, but Rhett said it was "different".

Dessert was fruit pizza. Sugar cookie crust (homemade with whole wheat flour), whipped cream and fruit. This dessert is always such a hit. I love making them, because they turn out so beautiful.

The kids got to celebrate Memorial Day with 2 brand new (to them) bikes. They were sitting in the living room waiting for them this morning. Seth wore his bike helmet alllllll day long. The only time he took it off was to go into Chipotle....and even that took a nice arm twisting.

I hope you've had a great holiday!


I am giving away a copy of the Indigo Dreams Garden of Wellness CD for children.

My kids love these CDs. They are always asking to listen to "stories". This CD is filled with child-friendly stories that help promote healthy eating, stress/anger management, and relaxation. There are also sections of positive affirmations and calming music. I can't say enough about how wonderful these stories are.

If you would like to win this CD, please leave a comment below. I will be posting the winner on Friday night. Good luck!
