Friday's FAVORITES Feature
It's Friday again...wow! Today I am picking an "edible" for one of my Friday Favorites. For the last year, I have been working on my eating and exercise habits. I have been concentrating on my goals to get healthier and to be in better shape entering this midlife season!
During this whole year of learning to cut back and cut out certain foods, there has been one SNACK that has become my GO-TO regular EVERY SINGLE DAY...If I run out...I am LOST!!!! I literally HAVE to go get more.
Baby Carrots! No Kidding. ;-)
I am addicted to them. Every morning I set them out on the counter, put an ice cube or two on top, and every night I stick them back in the frig. (refilling as needed)
They are crunchy, and a little sweet, and filling, and obviously healthy for you...and I haven't turned orange....(yet).
Every two weeks (payday) I go to Sam's Club and buy two of these 3 pound bags of baby carrots...and that's about right around the time that they run out...so I know I must be eating a lot!! (but just to set the record straight, Gideon helps me. He LOVES carrots, too!)
That's my FAVORITE for Friday and I wouldn't want to have to get through a week without them!!!! :-)
And in closing, for any canine lovers out there, you know how special our furry family members can be...I am asking if you might would say a little prayer for Kobe and our new Vet here in Cedar Rapids. He is going in early Friday morning to have a growing benign fatty tumor removed, and it shouldn't be too serious a procedure, but it is always the administering of anesthesia to a dog in his older years that can make one worry. The older they get the more dangerous it can be to put them under with it. So I just want everything to go okay for our Kobe man....we Love him so much.
Thanks so much. Everybody have a Fabulous Friday. We have snow coming in for the weekend...so here we go again.... HUGS!
