It has snowed quite a bit here lately. I don't hate snow as much as I used to, probably because here in Illinois the snow is generally a light fluffy snow that does not require body building to lift it! Also, now that I have kids, I love to see them enjoy sledding and throwing snowballs at each other. Friday I'm going to exercise by Snow Shoeing! Anyone ever done it? A friend of mine suggested going and my husband has snow shoes so I said sure! I might enjoy this more than my spin class! :)
I love snow peas. I just ate many of them.... This from wisegeek.com "The origin of the term “snow pea” is uncertain. It may refer to the fact that they can grow in late winter or possibly to the frost-like tint of the pods. In French, snow peas are called “mange tout,” which means “eat all,” since both the peas and the pods are edible."
See..this is why I love the French...they name a vegetable "EAT ALL!" Well, I ate them all!
I've been fairly okay on the eating the last couple of days. We celebrated my dear dear friends birthday on Sunday. I made a chicken stirfry (Healthy) and a frosted cake (not so healthy). This is kind of gross, but fatty foods get the bowels moving. I often time have difficulties remember to keep enough fat in my diet when I'm eating healthy. I eat alot of great things and a sufficient amount, but it's lots of fruits and vegetables. I think my body was happy to have a little more fat!
