Go-Go A Go-Go!


Happy Hump Day!  I hope you had a good one!

Yesterday was super busy, as I anticipated, but I think I handled it gracefully and did not allow myself to get overly stressed.  After work, I tutored for an hour then came home to finish up preparations for Sarah and Sam’s welcome home from the hospital dinner. 

I felt super rushed, so I hope the dinner tasted OK.

I got to see little baby Samantha Grace, who is just as precious and as perfect as can be.

This is one proud papa! 

Here’s a picture text I received from the new momma who claims to be a member of the clean plate club.  Guess dinner was somewhat edible! 😉

After making dinner for Larry, Brian and myself, I crashed.  Yesterday was GO, GO, GO.

Today after work I rushed to the library to see if my books that have been on hold for 3 days were still being held.  Three days is the limit they will keep them.  I was lucky to catch the girl as she was clearing the shelf.    She was so nice and gave them to me off the cleared cart!  Whew!  I’ve been waiting on these two to come in for a while.

eat, drink & be vegan by Dreena Burton and The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. 

I have seen pictures of meals from eat, drink & be vegan on other blogs and have been extremely curious to try them!  I’ve also been wanting to read The Kind Diet ever since I saw Alicia on Oprah a few months ago. 

So far I’ve read a few chapters of The Kind Diet and the two things that have really stood out to me are:

1) When you eat meat or dairy products, you are consuming and absorbing all of the toxins, chemicals, antibiotics, and pathogens that were in the animals.  Some scientists even believe that the high levels of adrenaline and stress hormones released through an animal’s body before being slaughtered may also be passed onto the dinner plate.  Something to consider, I guess. 

2) Going vegan can clear the skin, help you lose weight, give you more energy, and smooth your digestion. 

Although I do not think I can go entirely vegan, I am willing to reduce the amount of dairy that I consume.  These claims seem too good to pass up.  I just love cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, ice cream, and chocolate way too much to swear off it forever. 

Tomorrow will be another busy day, but it ends with a hair appointment at my favorite salon 🙂

Ta-Ta for now!  Have a wonderful evening!!!!

Would you pass up on your favorite foods if you knew doing so would alleviate skin problems, low energy levels, digestion problems or other health concerns???  Why or why not?

  1. I’ve been wanting to check out both of those books!

    I think I would be willing to cut down on certain foods if they were causing all kinds of problems, but if it were something I really love I don’t think I could cut it out entirely.

    • The Kind Diet is great so far. It is very restrictive, but I could see how if you could stick to this you would definitely feel great! It’s very imformative, too!
