Eating was OK today. I had a frozen meal left in the freezer at work so decided to have that instead of something made at home.
Breakfast - Oatmeal with Nutracleanse (see review below), Kraft unsweetened unsalted peanut butter and Kashi Go Lean Crunch
Lunch - President's Choice Spinach & Cannelloni, pear & 1/2 banana **
Dinner - Vegetable soup & grilled cheese
Dessert - 1% milk and 3 Peak Freans Lifestyle Vanilla Bean Latte cookies.
** Random thoughts here .... today I had 1/2 banana at lunch. For most of you this may not be significant, but for me it was. I see people eat half a banana all the time and I often wonder "What do you do with the other half?". Seriously, doesn't it go mushy? or brown?? I either eat the whole banana or throw the other half away (as I did today because half of it was bruised and I do NOT eat bruised bananas). Yeah, random .. whatever!
A while ago I received some sample packs of this product called Nutracleanse. I've been using it off and on for a while and thought I'd write up a little review. This is made by a locally owned company so if you don't live in BC you may never have encountered it. But if you ever do see it (locations)... you should try it!
It seems to be touted as a product for the relief of constipation, and even a bit for weight loss. Neither of those reasons are why I personally use it. It's got ground flax and ground psyllium in it, which we all know is good for us. But really ... it tastes good and adds a little texture!
I love to have it sprinkled on yogurt and lately I've been mixing it with my morning oatmeal.
And ... while it is recommended for constipation I can assure you that it does help things get moving, but it doesn't keep it moving beyond what is necessary (unlike alot of more commonly known laxatives). It does it's job and life goes on as normal.
If everyone could keep their fingers crossed for me this weekend that would be great. This is a race I'm hoping to do really well in and my son has an important game this weekend too.
Hope everyone is having a great day - and have a great weekend too!!!!!
