Plenty of Plants and August Date Night

After a summer of indulgence, we have been focusing on fruits and veggies.

 Grapes, blueberries, cherries, Greek yogurt, and a bit of granola

Mixed organic greens, edamame, red onions, cucumbers, mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil in a simple vinaigrette (olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper)  


While we are focusing on fruits and veggies, we still enjoyed a glass of wine, some cheese, sundried tomatoes, and olives on date night. We didn’t finish all the cheese and olives however, as we had enjoyed a big salad at home prior to going out. The focus of date night was spending time with each other, enjoying a bit of great wine, a few bites of delicious cheese, and a few good olives. When we picked up the toddler we felt light and satisfied, not stuffed and uncomfortable. It was perfect. Now we just have to remember that feeling (and not get tempted and overindulge in the future…).

Question: What was the best thing you ate over the weekend? I LOVED the brie we had on date night. But I only had a tiny bit as I can’t handle rich cheese very well…

Be Well,
