    hmmm popcorn, I have no will

    hmmm popcorn, I have no will against it...I could eat a whole big bowl of the stuff on my own. Has to be air popped with a bit of butter, salt and parmesan cheese though. Pairs nicely with a glass of wine too.

    and hot dogs on Quinoa?? interesting combo Larry

    This morning I had eggs,

    This morning I had eggs, wheat toast and fruit (sliced strawberries, pineapple and blackberries). I didn't eat that until 10 or so, so didn't have a snack.

    Lunch was late as well and consisted of some leftover pasta and a salad with yucky iceburg lettuce cause my baby spinach was slimy. Cherry tomatoes off my plant made it nicer though.

    Snack was some corn chips on the way to my daughter's softball game (they won, undefeated and so go to play offs on Sat. Woot!) and ate some gummy fruit things while there.

    Dinner was fried tofu, baked sweet potato, green beans and asparagus. Kids had steak instead of tofu, regular baked taters and I made cous cous for the feral that doesn't like potatoes(strange child!)

    Will probably eat a banana or something similar before I go to bed but not sure. Drinks for the day was decaf iced tea and water.

    Oh, I love quinoa. It has a fun texture. I keep it cooked in the fridge and eat it for breakfast. Add a bit of milk and nuke it then cinnamon and sugar, fruit or whatever. Is delish.

    Yesterday was...Chia fresca

    Yesterday was...

    Chia fresca after my run.

    Breakfast - Homeade yogurt (I tried the crockpot method and added honey and vanilla and it is yummy!) and fresh fruit.

    Snack - Banana and a lifewater 0

    Lunch - Sandwich (2 slices whole grain bread, sprouts, hummus, cheese and tomato)

    Snack - Bowl of veggies (cucumber, baby carrots, celery and black olives) with some ranch dip

    Dinner - Spaghetti -- whole grain pasta, jarred sauce with lots of sauteed veggies in it (red and green bell peper, onion, garlic, asparagus) garlic bread. Kids had their sauce with garlic sauteed chicken in it instead of the veggies.

    In the evening I had a beer then before bed I had a banana. Rest of drinks were water and 1/2 of an orange Fanta.

    Cali, how long does it take to make the yogurt? I'm going to have to try it, do you follow a specific recipe?

    Zumba -- Ummm Takes a while

    Zumba -- Ummm Takes a while but not constant time like you have to stand there and do anything. 5 to 10 min here and there. lol I read these blog posts on yogurt making and then just went for it. http://travelingtastebuds.blogspot.com/2009/08/easy-homemade-yogurt.html and http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/10/you-can-make-yogurt-in-your-crockpot.html?commentPage=2



    I did use a candy thermometer at 1 hour intervals during the heat up and cool down phases because I had no idea how hot my crock pot runs. Once I wrapped it up though I didn't bug it again for like 10 hours. Also, I put it in a colander lined with wet coffee filters and strained nearly all of it for 3 hours in the fridge over a bowl. It came out really thick and nice. Before straining though we used some of the thinner stuff and made smoothies. After straining I added a few tablespoons of honey and a tablespoon of vanilla to the whole thing since I prefer nilla yogurt. I did taste it plain though and was surprised that I actually liked it because I don't normall like plain yogurt at all.

    I don't know if this is something I will do all the time or not as it is not overly cost effective. A 1/2 gal of organic milk here costs me about $3.50. I guess I could use non organic milk but still... I usually just buy the tub of vanilla Dannon naturals since it doesn't have a bunch of extra crap in it. I will say though that the taste of the homeade stuff is far superior in my opinion so that might very well sway me.



    I love trying new stuff though and love when it actually comes out so this was fun.

    Thanks for sharing Cali, it

    Thanks for sharing Cali, it sounds a bit involved...will have to make it an over the summer activity for the kids and I maybe. I'm impressed to hear that the taste is that great! I'm excited to try it out.
