Sometime’s Sundays are spent on the couch. Yesterday was a day of recovery from our party Saturday night and I only stepped outside for food.
The morning outing was to the farmer’s market for samples, fresh veggies and eye candy:
Yummy dinner creations are on their way…
I also put the dehydrator to work to make kale chips!! I simply gave the kale a quick spritz of olive oil and added some salt and garlic powder. After a few hours in the machine these crunchy, scrumptious chips were ready to be gobbled up.
After a day of power relaxing I have decided to spend the next week (and maybe longer) continuing this recharge with a sugar cleanse. I have decided to refrain from eating any extra sugar, like candy, chocolate, sugary cereals, sprinkles… My colitis has been acting up a bit, and while it’s impossible to know the true source of this pain (it’s normally a combination of food, stress, time of year), I know that my indulgence in the smallest part of the food pyramid has not be helping the situation.
Also, since I have been injured it just so happens that things have slowed down at work and I find I am snacking to fill the void, but I’m not running the six or seven miles to balance the extra munchies. I just want to get back on track while I slowly start running again.
Feel free to join me in this recharge of sorts and comment with progress, tips and support. I will be holding myself accountable through the blog and will be honest and open as always. Here’s too a happy and healthy Monday 🙂
