Time Flies

My oh my, has it been a month already? Sorry guys, I know I kind of fell off the face of the earth but it has been crazy over here. My boss had a baby, my co-worker has gone back to school to earn a certification and then there's me. It seems to have evened out and my hours are back to normal but the first couple of weeks there were some extra hours thrown in and I was working a lot of evenings. Add some anxiety and depression in the mix as well as some computer problems and blogging just wasn't in the cards.

I'm hanging out at my brother's house today and tomorrow and I currently have Tyler cuddled up next to me. I decided to post a quick grocery haul from this morning and I have some old pics (digging into the archives for these - they've been posted before but I figured recycled pics are better than no pics) of some things I've been eating lately. Hopefully the yuck will pass soon and things will get back to normal but this is what I've got for you right now.

First up is my produce haul. Some chard, carrots, gala apples, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, pears and garlic.

Skinny Pop popcorn, Whole Foods Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (they finally brought it back!), frozen brussels sprouts to keep on hand, roasted cauliflower and broccoli (because I'm lazy and they had it) and some Tofutti so I can finally try those damn Pumpkin Bagels I got from Trader Joe's ages ago.

I immediately thought of Shen when I came across this freezer case and had to take a pic for her. Check out all of the different holiday roasts/stuffed faux turkey options. I was pretty impressed by the selection but walked out without any of them.

These are the kinds of things I've been eating lately:

Lots of oats. I love changing up the toppings and I've been using bananas lately, apples and of course the one pictured above is a great combo.

Lots of stir fries because they are quick and easy.

DIY burrito bowls.

I've been LOVING apples lately and really eating a lot of them. I'm going to cook up the chard with some garlic, a teensy bit of tamari, some onions and some nooch and eat that with brown rice or quinoa and some mashed cauliflower. I'm going to try moving back toward Crazy Sexy Diet type eating for the winter since I get sick so easily (I've had a cough for two months and it won't go away!) so hopefully that will help me stay healthy and maybe even improve my mood.

Things have been the same otherwise. Delilah turns three next week, I can't believe how quickly the time has gone! Now it's cuddle time with Tyler.

I hope you've all been well!
