A Review of Meals this Week

My diet consists of gluten free and dairy free and soy free. I have an autoimmune illness, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

On Monday, tuna, chicken BBQ and chicken burgers were prepared. Rice and roasted vegetables were also prepared.

An order from Whole Foods Market was made. They have the best gluten free and dairy free products, that I can not find anywhere else. Plus they deliver, so it’s easier to order there as my work schedule can be difficult to get to a grocery store.

I did not have a dessert every night. I finished the cinnamon muffins last night. The gluten free homemade biscuits were starting to loose it’s freshness so I had to toss those.

A spinach smoothie was made for Breakfast, along with eggs, avocado on toast and left over veggies were warmed up.

The refrigerator is now empty of this week’s meals.

This evening, I’ll make dinner. It will be a salad and a baked potato.

Tomorrow I work, so I have the chicken soup and tuna thawing. I will make those for dinner when I get home from a long day at work.

I’ll have to eat the grapes today for a snack. I also got out of the freezer the gluten free brownies I made the other day. And today I’m going to make blueberry muffins. Blueberry muffins will be my breakfast for tomorrow along with fruit. I’ll post the gluten free blueberry muffins.

Friday Morning Cleaning at the Studio

This morning, the floors needed to be cleaned. I decided to get the floors finished before I get ready for work. Today I’ll be working from home. I love Friday’s for that reason.

There’s some areas of my house that needs dusting. I’ll try to do that in-between my sessions.

The candles in my family room and bathroom are turned on(I use hot plate warmer and plug in candle wax- I have cats!) Hoping the fragrance from the candles will energize my home and make it feel refreshing.

Photos of Fresh Snow

We had fresh snow last night. Maybe 2 inches of snow. It’s much warmer than it was the last three days. But there’s more cold and snow in the forecast next week.

On my walk early this morning, these photos were taken.

Preparing for Smoothies

On my counter there’s bananas that are becoming brown. I don’t care for them at that point, so I cut them up and put them in the freezer for future smoothies. Also can be used for banana bread. Great way to save money and be intentional about your diet.

This evening I’ll be knitting and resting. I work on Saturday, all day!

Happy Day
