Crunch Time and Health Foods

I haven't posted in days because I have been swamped.  

I am in the last two weeks of my university class, work is winding down and it is report card time of year, and I have my sister's shower this weekend.  To top off the business, I have not been sleeping well.  I can't seem to turn my brain off at night, and when I do finally fall asleep, my dreams seem stressful, like I am trying to solve problems in them and am running around in a frantic state.

However, no matter how busy I am there is always time for going out with friends for some health foods :-)

And by health foods I mean:

1) Poutine


2) Indian Tacos


3) Italian pastries


4) Pez


Hehe - I didn't eat all of those things (don't worry I won't have a coronary) - just a few bites of each.  The hubby and I joined a bunch of friends on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for a cultural festival in our city.  We got to "travel" to many different countries in three days, trying foods from all over the world, taking in the entertainment, and experiencing just a taste of what the culture has to offer.

I put on my dancing shoes, and cute new shirt for Saturday night and boogied the night away.


I did eat an entire giant container of kimchee, which totally made my day :-)


The hubby asked for creamy Parmesan fusilli for dinner tonight ... 
Guess he hasn't enough of the health food.


What food do you hope is discovered to be the new miracle health food?

I would totally pick kettle cooked potato chips.

And fries. With ketchup. If that was health food, it would be a staple.

I've had poutine a couple times at a local bar... I think its one of the BEST things I've ever had!! But I was told that pronounce wrong (poo-teen). I'm sure I sound like a southern idiot! ha ha!

FUN!! That sounds like it would have been a fun event!

I wish that salty chips were the new health food. I crave them, they call me... you know... it's not pretty!! :)

BTW - YUM on the kimichi! There is a Korean place coming to where I live VERY soon and I'm sooo excited!

Not being able to sleep just makes everything worse! At least the busy-ness will soon end. :)

Miracle health food pick: chocolate cake.

Good luck with everything...

I wish...SPAM or cornbread or butter was the miracle health food. That would be awesome.
