It is so nice to have an extra day to get things done and prepare for the week. So that is my plan for the day. I figure if I write out my to do list for today it makes me that much more accountable to actually getting it done.
Today's to do list:
Its a little ambitious :)
- Clean the bathroom ( x 2 ) - ugh the worst job ever, I think I'll do this first so it is out of the way!
- Do the mass amounts of laundry that have piled up. oops...
- Complete school work: Vitamins Chapter, and Minerals Chapter ( the two together are almost 150 pages of very tiny writing, it is slightly daunting)
- 30 min walk with the dog
- 30 min strength training - thanks to Optimistic health for showing me a great new strength training website. Thanks Carley!
- Cooking for the week, I want to get lots of snacks for mike prepped today
- Schedule planning for the week (blog planning, work & school)
- I got my first order for baby booties, so I will be making these today, can't wait to show you what they look like.
- Meditation and time for myself - very important and usually the first thing to fall off the list :(
I made Avocado on sprouted grain bread for breakfast. It is quick and easy and leaves me feeling full for quite some time!
|It is slightly unappealing but don't knock it till you try it!|
Avocado Spread on Sprouted grain toast:
2 ripe avocados
salt & pepper
Toast 1-2 pieces of gluten free, or sprouted grain bread. Mash your ripe avocados in a bowl add salt and pepper. Smother the creamed avocado onto your bread and sprinkle some more pepper and nutritional yeast on top.
The first time I made this for Mike he was a little hesitant to try it. One, it looks a little funky, green spread on toast? Two, he always assumed avocados were for guacamole. Three, he is so used to having bread and butter, or oatmeal that throwing something like this into the mix seemed just too much of a change for him. But he ended up loving it!! Which is great because Avocados offer us some great health benefits. They are packed with carotenoids that help protect against eye disease. Half an avocado contains 3.4 grams of fibre which helps keep your digestive system moving and functioning properly. And it is a slow fibre to breakdown so that is why is makes me feel full for such a long time. Which can help you lose weight as you will be less likely to want to snack. Avocados help stabilize blood sugar and they are also great to eat if you are pregnant as they contain a high level of folate.
What do you like to do when you get that extra day for a long weekend?
Have an amazing day all!
