As Valentine's Day approaches, I found it appropriate to see the shape my sprouts fell into after I finished rinsing them.
I've been making a real effort to eat healthy, whole foods.
This has me doing a lot of label reading and changing the way I think about mealtime.
Looking for a way to add more veggies to my winter lunches, I revisited something I used to do as a newlywed... sprouting.
It's kind of a fun wintertime gardening activity with the benefit of healthy little sprouts to add to salads and sandwiches.
Yesterday I melted a slice of cheddar onto an English muffin.
Topped with avocado slices, red onion and freshly sprouted sprouts, I enjoyed a most delicious lunch.
Instead of sliced bread, I tried these English muffins made with sprouted grains and no flour. They are so good, especially when slightly toasty.
Lunch was followed by a long walk.
All in all a good day on the healthy eating/exercise front.
I might not be able to say that every day, but every day offers a new chance to work towards that goal.
Now if I could just get over that notion that sandwiches need to be accompanied by potato chips. Seems I can rationalize them as, after all, they are potatoes and potatoes are vegetables, aren't they??
