Ten on Tuesday

1)  Breakfast this morning included vanilla yogurt with toppings (blackberries, strawberries, flax seed, chia seeds, coconut, bee pollen, hemp granola), an apple with almond butter and OJ.



2)  I am not a big fan of yogurt unless it has toppings.  The bowl we had on the weekend included:  chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut, chocolate chips, granola and bee pollen. 
 


3)  Speaking of bee pollen ... you should have seen the look on Christopher's face when he found it in the cupboard.  Ummm, why do we have bee pollen!??  You can read about some of the health benefits here

4)  It is family day this coming Monday, which is a holiday.  I am excited that we're getting out of town for the long weekend, even though it's only for a couple of days and it's not very far.  I love little road trips!  

5)  Last night I juiced a bunch of fruits/veggies as part of my dinner.



6)  I also had a big salad.



7)  Tonight we went out to 13th Avenue Coffee House & Food for dinner.


 

I had a veggie burger with a side of soup.

8)  I'm having a hard time finding valentines to give out to my students that don't say "be mine" or "you're my best friend" or "I love you" ... what ever happened to simple sentiments such as "you're cool" or "you rock", or even just "happy valentine's day"!?  I will make one more stop tomorrow, and if I don't find anything suitable, I'll give out tests instead.

9)  I saw this recipe tonight and subsequently entered into lala land.  Maybe I will still buy the "be mine" and "I love you" valentines, just to send to this sandwich.  Can you send valentines to a sandwich? 

10)  Naaaaaaaa, I don't need a sandwich for a valentine ... I have myself a living, breathing, sandwich-loving, human valentine and a lovely evening lined up for v-day.

Okay, I'm still thinking about the sandwich
Honey - can we make this soon?

Do you have any plans for valentine's day?
Do you buy/make/send/help your kids send valentine cards?

Haha, tests instead of Valentine's, I'm sure they'd love that ;)
We don't have any big plans Valentine's night, but we're going out of town for the weekend as will celebrate then.

Haha I love where you said "if I don't find anything suitable, I'll give out tests instead." It really cracked me up! The hubby and I are having a low key valentine's day tomorrow, which is good for me!

Maybe you can bake them cookies? I'm sure they'd like that more than tests ;) I have ZERO plans for Valentines Day. Sad, I know.

I've read up on bee pollen and have wanted to try it but have always been too lazy to go out of my way to try it :)

We are staying in and making dinner tonight, which is the best way to celebrate IMO! I am making lentil enchiladas, spanish rice, and chocolate souffles. I can't wait to spend the evening with my Valentine.

I used to be good about sending valentine's to my nephews and niece. But there are 6 of them now so it gets a bit more expensive to try to get them something for every holiday! I do plan to do something for Easter, thoug!
