This afternoon was work, work, work! I put together two information sheets on Infant and Toddler nutrition, which took most of the afternoon. Tomorrow is 5-11 year olds and adolescents! (Sorry I can’t share these or R.D.’s would never get paid, yo!)
I broke at 5:00 for a snack – soft serve banana ice cream with a little Cacao Bliss on top! I swear my food processor nearly jumped off the counter with this one!! I used only 1 small frozen banana, so the report is that you can make this in a small portion.
Dinner tonight was from Health Magazine
How good does this look:
And here’s my version:
I stripped two giant carrots with my veggie peeler –
And used Oikos, cinnamon, cayenne, lemon (like the recipe says, but a little less for half the portion) and raisins and cinnamon almonds and mint from the garden –
It could have used a bit more dressing, but this was GOOD!! Loved the cinnamon and spiciness combined with the yogurt.
I also thawed out this single piece of grass-fed beef we’ve had frozen for a while. Neither of us was that hungry tonight, so the portion size ended up being perfect
And the beef was DELICIOUS! The carrot salad was quite carrot-y, so make sure you love them if you try it.
Lastly I had a nub of the new Blue Cheese Walnut Rye loaf Matt brought home! With a little bit of butter
I would have loved to have a glass of red wine with this meal, but we’re going out of town in 2 days and opening a bottle for a small glass didn’t seem very practical

I’m going to relax for the rest of the night. I have an early dentist appointment in the morning and then am going into work for the day. Exercise will come later!
