No, we never got any rain. Not surprising, really. Kenzie's spent the day playing outside with friends. It's been hovering around 90 degrees, so he's come in a time or two for a juice pop refueling and to watch part of Willy Wonka (the 1971 version, of course), and then run back out - bike helmet, Pokemon cards and colored pencils in tow.
I've been gathering ideas for snack trays for the past few hours. My blood sugar has always fluctuated throughout the day, often making me dizzy, weak and faint, especially if I leave gaps between meals. The three meals a day thing doesn't work well for me. Grazing actually works best, and putting out a snack tray in the morning encourages me (and Kenzie) to grab small portions of healthy foods when hunger strikes. At first, it was just fruits and the occasional veggie, but today I compiled a much broader list:
Bananas rolled in oats
Berries of all sorts
Cubed butternut squash
Cubed sweet potato
Whole wheat crackers
Pieces of homemade bread
Pita bread pieces
Whole wheat tortilla pieces
Homemade bean dip
Plain yogurt with mayo and spices
And if this wasn't enough to make you hungry, check out this fun dessert! Planning on trying it soon (without the soymilk, of course, since Kenzie is alergic).
I guess a trip to the grocery store is in order. I'm curious to see how it works out.... Just typing in the list is making my stomach growl. Off to raid the pantry!
