Yesterday started out so nice and ended up with big clouds in the sky so instead of spending the remainder of our day outside we picked up some fixings for a pizza and relaxed around the house. To my delight my iPod from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition came today however to my disappointment the iPod can not be reloaded with any other material. Oh well I guess a new iPod stays on my list of desired items, especially since I haven’t gotten a new one since the Mini iPod back in 2005. Also many of you have inquired about whether I will be posting about my journey to become a Certified Health Counselor and I plan to. Right now I am working on warm-up classes for my program which starts on May 1st. These warm-up classes teach fundamentals that are helpful to understand prior to starting classes; such as Nutrition, Primary Foods, and Food Cravings. So far I am loving being back in school and learning new things, this will be an exciting year.
A few other fun things came in the mail yesterday as well:
These bags from ChicoBag are great for taking on the go. They fold right up into their own little carrying case and have a clip on them so you can clip it on your key chain, purse, or bag. I like to throw them in my hand bag so that whenever I am out whether it’s picking up a few groceries, books or other things I have a a reusable bag to throw everything in. These are especially good when I travel because I hate when I go shopping and have to carry around a bunch of plastic/paper bags, with these you can throw anything in them and they are super cute!
These yummy cookies from Kookie Karma came yesterday and I can’t wait to try them, I will report back on how they are. Update: Hubby and my dad loved the Holsitic Chocolate Chip. My dad wants to know where he can get more of these cookies!
After spending the afternoon relaxing i.e. Neil playing baseball on the Wii and I did some work on my Fundamentals #5 Nutrition 102: Vitamins and Minerals we finally sat down together and watched a show. I then sent Neil off to the kitchen to make the pizza dough, we used Bob’s Red Mill GF Pizza Crust Mix. The dough was kind of sticky and soft but we made it work and topped our pizza with jerusalem artichokes (aka sunchokes), mushrooms, roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, sauteed onions and tomato sauce. Once it came out of the oven I finished it with some sunflower sprouts tossed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The GF crust turned out to be delicious and we overindulged a bit on pizza.
