I shared last week that one healthy habit I'm working towards "falling into" is to have a fresh green juice more often as compared to my usual "green powder". So far I'm doing good and it feels great to get some fresh juice flowing into my cells!
|4:45 Just got home snack: 1 green juice|
with apple, celery, pineapple, kale, lemon
ginger, and cucumber.
|Followed up the juice with a smoothie...|
"Green Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie"
|Avery with her "Nana"|
|She was so captivated by some birds in a tree close by.|
Time for a little pic with Mom!
|That girl just keeps growing!|
|She loved sitting down on the step and then running towards|
Nana Karen and Uncle Andrew!
|Next she had some fun by the car...|
|...then the world stopped when she saw a cricket |
or "hop hop" as Avery calls them.
|The fun began when she tried to touch it... |
and it hopped away!
|Then the chase was on!|
|"O M G!" I've been trying to teach her this, |
but it just comes out, "Ohh Gee!"
|"I better get low for this."|
|"Hey guys, I see a cricket under there."|
|"I'm going to get it!"|
|Dinner 7:00 PM: "Sneaky Spaghetti" with gluten-free noodles,|
and a sneaky sauce of lentils and spinach
mixed up with a jar of spaghetti sauce. Topped with peas of course!
|Her favorite part was the peas!|
Anyone else love the ending to The Bachelor Pad...too funny!
|Dessert: "Crazy Ingredient Chocolate Cake" (it's cauliflower!)|
from Chocolate-Covered Katie.
