I’m a big fan of Bob’s Red Mill products. The products are readily available in most grocery stores where I live. Whole Foods and health food stores also stock a variety of this brand. I recently purchased a “new to me” bag of their Muesili. It’s fantastic! Talk about a healthy and tasty combination of whole grain wheat, date crumbles, sunflower seeds, raisins, whole grain rye, whole grain barley, whole grain oats, whole grain triticale, flaxseed, almonds and walnuts. Yum, yum, yum!
Tasty, healthy and low relatively low calorie. I love this stuff almost as much as my favorite Easy Best Healthy Granola.
For you Weight Watcher folks a generous 1/4 cup serving is just 3 WWPP. Isn’t that awesome?
Two tablespoons of Museli over a bowl of fat free Greek Yogurt and berries makes for a delicious and fun summer breakfast, snack or dessert.
If you think about it in advance you can assemble this and refrigerate it or pack it in your picnic basket to enjoy later.
The other day I needed something quick and easy to feed four people for lunch. Not wanting to run to the grocery store I decided to make do with what I had on hand. A quick peek into the freezer revealed a bag of Costco raviolis. All of the ingredients were here to make Last Minute Lasagna. You don’t even have to thaw the raviolis so this dish goes together quickly. Love that. Fresh basil from the Farmer’s Market was a nice touch on top of the baked lasagna.
We have been having a wedding shopping marathon going on here this past week. So much so, that the ball of my right foot has become swollen and sore from all the walking! Can you believe it? I’ve been icing it and applying a deep relief essential oil blend several times a day which is helping with the swelling and pain. I also have a prescription medication for the swelling. Geesh – I feel old this week.
This new foot developement has also meant that I have not been able to go for my morning walk the last couple of days. Sigh. It seems like I go backwards two steps for every step I move forward! Okay, I am venting, but this is so frustrating as I have so much to do. My morning walk not only burns extra calories but it’s also a great stress reducer which is quite helpful right now. My weight work outs can still be performed and I can sit down to do most of them so at least I still have that. Of course there is the pool in the back yard and I could pull out my Aqua Jogger for a pool work out. Where there is a will there is a way.
Yesterday I got my dresser drawers cleaned out – I sat on a chair to do this – oh they look so nice now. I also worked on my walk in closet. Even though I can fit into some old clothes that doesn’t mean I should be wearing them. Some of the stuff is so outdated – I now wonder why I hung onto them. It’s time to let go of stuff. I am a saver, things that have sentimental value are difficult for me to give up. When the mood to get rid of things strikes I have to act on it and try not to look back with remorse. Hubby Tom weeded through his arsenal of summer shirts and although it was painful for him, he did create a donation pile. He grew up in a large family and you didn’t discard clothing that was still wearable – it was passed down to the next kid even if it wasn’t a current fashion. Two savers in the same household can create a lot extra stuff. Today I will be working on the laundry room cupboards and storage closet. The thrift stores will be happy to see me coming with donations!
This weekend hubby Tom hopes to complete the refinishing project on the kitchen table. It’s been at a stand still. With all of his business travel and work schedule his free time is limited. I am super excited about having the table look like new again. Thanks hubby! (Yes, he does read the blog and he also enjoys your comments)
