Going Strong!

Was having Internet issue so I am just now getting a chance to post about my food from yesterday. I started off with using some the barley I still have in the refrigerator and made this delicious bowl of barley with dried cranberries, walnuts and a little honey.
Doesn't this look fabulous? I had some wheat berries I had pick up awhile a go and was anxious to cook them up and give them a try. They do take some time to cook but oh they were SO worth it. I soaked the berries the night before and rinsed the water and add fresh water and cook for about 60 minutes.

Now that they were cook I had no idea what to do with them. So I got online and found a recipe for Wheat berry Waldorf Salad and since I had everything in the house I thought I would give it a try. It was absolute fabulous I decided to throw it on a bed of spinach for a little more veggies. This recipe is a keeper and I look forward to finding some more recipes that use wheat berries. If anyone has any to share I would love to hear from you.

I work a lot on my personal chef business and also am thinking about doing some consulting at the gym with vegetarians. I was asked by another trainer to talk to his vegetarian client and I my husband said you aren't going to do that for free are you? It never even crossed my mind to charge someone and with our current situation it would sure help. So not sure if it will go anywhere but I have nothing to lose. I started getting hungry in late after and decided to finish off the little bit of Greek yogurt I had left and threw in the rest of the raspberries and a half cup of blueberries and little sliced almonds. Nice and refreshing snack. I did also munch on some cauliflower and hummus.

Didn't feel like making anything tonight for dinner and I saw that I had some left over butter beans and Swiss chard so made another bean and chard sandwich. Just love this sandwich.
I had a great day over all and had made some great strides and moving forward with my business. Matt, I did receive your email and thank you for all your time and effort to help me it is SO appreciated. My husband and myself both love the idea of KB Cuisine and I may even go with it.
Weight was good this morning and the eating has been right on. Feeling great and going strong I feel like I am unstoppable!

That's great that someone else decided yo utilise your skills and knowledge, and as you say, you've got nothing to lose. I'm sure if it comes to fruition, you'll do a great job of things :-).

I'm glad that things are going well for you. The main thing is to really just take each day as it comes I suppose as we all do, but I'm happy to see you so positive and enthusiastic about things, it's always good to see someone in that frame of mind.

Keep smiling, chin up, best wishes and good luck.

:-) :-).
