Hawkeyes girl -another tip for work snacking is dates....or when you really need something sweet after you have eaten

I keep a big bag of dates (although if you can get medjool dates, they are the  best) on my desk at work and a bag of brazil nuts, about three of each...eaten really slowly give all the selenium you need for the day, give that sugar hit, plus protein to make you feel fuller for longer and fibre from the dates...perfect snack!

To reduce the calories, you can split a brazil nut into slivers and stuff the dates with them....yummy! (just take out the stone first!)

another thing we used to do with turnip (swede) when we were kids, you peel, boil in chunks and when cooked, fry in a frying pan with a little oil, (real) butter for flavour and loads of freshly ground black pepper, mash roughly with a masher as you fry. This is also an excellent way to reheat cooked turnip, if you just put it into the fridge once you have boiled it. Some turnips are large and you get a lot for your money so it's worth while having some way to use up the rest the next day.

being irish and poor when we were growing up, we lived on cheap cuts of meat, lots of potatoes, turnips and cabbage. These days I tend to not cook so much of the turnip and cabbage, but if cooked well it can be good.

Speaking of recipes. I have just got this book, it is awesome...pricey but it is a big book about 2 inches thick,

http://www.amazon.com/River-Cottage-Veg-Every-Day/dp/1408812126/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330180428&sr=8-1

this link has some of his recipes from the BBC tv series.

Health Prompt for February 26 - March 3

This week let's review the goals we've made in past weeks and evaluate how we're doing. Need to change them up? Did you forget about some of them and need to start over? If you're rocking them, maybe it's time to add some new ones.

For myself, I have to say I haven't been doing so well and have fallen into the pattern of eating whatever the heck I want. Today I started over (again! it's ok!) and am back on the right track. I'm going back to strictly tracking my food, eating a fruit and/or veggie with each meal and snack, and adding in some exercise. I'm going to take my nephew to the golf course with the two mile walking track at least twice this week, as well as work out with a friend at her apartment's gym.

I have been doing really well with my new vegetarian diet! Sean and I have been making almost all of our meals (including breakfast, which I used to skip), and bringing our lunches to work. I /did/ try a bite of flank steak Sean cooked up last week because it smelled SOOOOO good (I had been /dreaming/ about eating meat). I was hoping the one bite would satisfy my craving. It did the exact opposite! It tasted terrible to me! So glad I did it, though, because I haven't has a SINGLE meat craving (or dream) since then!

I've been doing really bad with remembering to drink enough water. I keep trying to bring my water bottle to work with me, and then forgetting it in the car, or leaving it on the table and stuff... I think I need to make one of those water tracker charm bracelets, because that seems genius.

As for new goals, Sean and I have decided to "challenge" ourselves, starting March 1st. We are going vegan for 4 weeks (this coming from me - who 2 months ago was eating huge prime rib and t-bones, and Sean - who is a "man's man" who likes 3 things: boobs, beer, and BEEF). It is going to be a rough 4 weeks, but after watching "Forks Over Knives," and knowing the health problems that both of us already have (I'm 22, he's 29), we feel that this will be a good 'experiment,' if nothing else. Afterward, I plan to at least continue being vegetarian, but this is really to see (1) just how hard it is, and (2) if some of our health problems go away. If you guys want to follow the saga (I will be posting in a lot more detail on there), I'm posting about it on "Our Home, Your Home," and my blog has a link to Sean's blog as well.

my new goal is to move my ass! I am going to follow the programme in this book run fat b**ch run. (asterix for the profanity sensitive) anyway it is a 6 week programme that should have me running (extremely slowly!) for about 40mins 4 times a week by the end of it. I can do the tough stuff, this will be tough!! Starts with walking..i like walking!

Can't remember who asked about falafels, but this is a pretty good recipe for baked ones

if you haven't tried falafels yet, do! They make an extremely yummy veggie dinner (and I am a committed omnivore! as is DD and she loves them)

I've been doing really good lately, especially given that my work load has doubled, so I have a lot less time for cooking.  The last couple weeks, I was doing loads better than last year, but we had started to eat out more than once a week (our limit) and were turning to more processed foods.  This week, we're firmly back on track.  I got all the stuff to make the crispy quinoa and kale, too, and I'm so excited to try it!  I just need to find time in between work, dance class, and sewing.  I'm working on costumes for a musical, and the dress rehearsal is Monday!  I've still got six vests to finish and a jacket to start, so I'm sort of praying that my kale keeps.

I'm doing well too! Yeah Aislynn!  I was craving falafel the other day and found a recipe for baked falafel patties on All Recipes, but haven't tried it yet. I'll let you all know!

Got great healthy groceries today. Had to tell my nephew he couldn't sit in the cart because it was full of veggies Cheesy They had enormous English cucumbers (bigger than the 4 yo arm) for $.78. Woot!
