Hooray! It's Monday...

Really? A rousing cheer for Monday? Of course. Monday is do over day. I get a fresh start if I choose. At least that's how I choose to see Mondays now. I need do overs. So, today I am shooting for health supportive, nutrient dense foods to nourish my body with. Today is the last day of anitbiotics...hooray again! I still feel groggy, tired and very low energy. So, I need to find a way to support myself to bounce back to health and vitality.

I didn't do much this weekend, including shopping. Have I ever told you how much I love to shop? Well....I used to shop for recreation. I enjoyed browsing, touching and drooling over all sorts of pretty little things. But in the past couple of years, I have been feeling smothered by all our stuff. There is stuff everywhere, it is amazing that we can even breathe! So after many many trips to donate all the excess stuff, I stopped shopping for the sake of shopping. Shopping is not entertainment, is what I tell myself.

I went beachcombing and pulled together all the ingredients to complete all of the centrepeices for my daughter's wedding. Yay! I got to check something else off my list! All I have to do now is find the fabric for the dress I dreamed up while I was sick. Other than that, all the other wedding related projects on my list will be completed the week prior while I am at my daughter's. Fun fun fun!!!

I have some nice black beluga lentils in my cupboard. They call to me every time I open the cupboard, so I am thinking about a salad. I actually bought the lentils because I used to get the most amazingly delicious beluga lentil burgers...mmmmm loved them! I saw the lentils, thought of the burgers and made the purchase. However, I find that I am not as interested in the "burger" experience as I once was, so the lentils have been sitting there, neglected and lonely. So, I decided to find some other ways to use beluga lentils. I think salad. I will let you know how that goes. I should think a few brightly colored vegges, mixed with shiney black lentils will be a treat for the eyes and for the palate. Of course, I will let you know how it goes.

Lentils are high in fiber and protein, and since I don't eat any red meat (or chicken or pork) I am always on the lookout for good sources of protein.

Update: The beluga lentils remain lonely and untouched in the cupboard. They did not turn themselves into a salad, and although I beleive in magic, I am no Samantha Stevens. I apparently have to do something more than twitch my nose in order to turn a pantry staple into a salad. I will keep you posted. Until then, I continue to have do-overs, Monday or not!

I have also made a choice to include some chicken and a little beef into my diet...we will see how that goes.
