Just In Time

Sometimes I’m a little late to the party.   Yesterday I was just in time.

For several months, I’ve been reading about What I Ate Wednesday sponsored by Peas & Crayons. I never participated because I never bothered to read the rules.  I had already posted yesterday (with a really good food day) when I read the rules and realized that the food I posted didn’t have to be From a Wednesday, just posted On a Wednesday.  So I joined in!!

Peas and Crayons

I’m so glad I did!  It was fun and I enjoyed reading what all of the other bloggers were up to.  I didn’t get through all of them, so I have more to look forward to today.  I like the idea, it helps us feel that we’re part of something and not just posting out into the abyss.  I also noticed people coming to BCDC from Peas & Crayons.  We’re all in this together and it’s great fun!

Wednesday sort of slipped by. The only meal I documented was my dinner.  I was on track, having my overnight oats in the morning…I do love them!  Blueberries and strawberries made them special.

Dinner…which I again had late to try to keep myself from snacking.  That seems to be working for me.  On to the Salad!!

Lots of chopped romaine

Red bell pepper

Is there anything more beautiful than the inside of a ripe Jersey tomato?

I remembered there was still some pasta salad left over from Saturday’s party so I added that.

One luscious cup of protein…my lovely pinto beans.  With some balsamic vinaigrette added, it was the perfect meal.  Good thing my Purple Bowl is so Big…that’s a darned big salad I’ve got there.  Sometimes they feel like I’ll never finish them, but I always do.  It’s such a healthy and filling thing to have for dinner.  And there are so many variations I can make.  I love it!

I’m up early today.  Sadly, we have a funeral to go to this morning.  Then we have a birthday lunch to go to after.  I’m off to get myself ready.

Happy Thursday…

    Sorry to hear about the funeral. It seems we have way too many funerals and not nearly enough births and weddings these days! There is a lot to be said for birthDAYS, though…

  2. I wanted to tell you about a great topping for yogurt that Jeanne introduced me to. (She is currently doing a medically supervised low carb/high fat diet and has lost 50 lbs.No idea how the points on this would work for WW.) It is a nut and seed topping and it is delicious. No sugar at all. You can use salted or unsalted based on your preference and whether you are watching your sodium like I am.

    Equal parts of:
    Sesame seeds (raw or toasted)
    Shelled Sunflower seeds
    Shelled Pumpkin seeds
    Whole Flax seeds
    Unsweetened shredded coconut
    Added to 2 parts chopped almonds

    For example, if you do 1/4 cup of the first ingredients, you add 1/2 cup of almonds. I make a large batch and sprinkle it every day.

    Use about 2 TB on your yogurt. So good!

  3. How are you going to keep yourself so busy when you move to New Mexico??? ::))))))))))))))))

  4. I try to eat as late as possible to minimize the snacking problem too! Me + Chex = kind of a mess.

    I’m so sorry about the funeral today…good luck with everything.

  5. Fran I love the name of your blog. I am so guilty of eating broken anything because it doesn’t count. Crackers, cookies, chips etc. Welcome to the blogsphere. I’ve been blogging almost a year but am still such a rookie. I’ve never really caught on to the computer but am trying hard because it’s fun & a great way to meet wonderful people, gain ideas and document life. I too own about a gazillion books.

    Your day is such the circle of life. Celebrating life ending & life moving on.

    • Marie!! Thanks for visiting, BCDC! Please come back often. I try to have fun here and share what’s going on. So true about life ending and life moving on. I love Feeding Five and I’ve added to you Bloglovin’ so I can keep up with you! Come back often!
