    #Vibram Five Finger Bikila minimalist #running #shoes. Got a pair through a "daily deals" website...can't recall which site now. Will never run in them after the recent backlash, but I DO like to wear them around the house, to the grocery store, etc. Comfy.

    I made it. Parting thoughts: -I awoke craving FRUIT for breakfast. -It's changed the way I look at food. I'm usually a serial pantry grazer. I'd mindlessly finish my kids' meals. I'm now more conscious about what I'm putting in my mouth and why. -I feel great. More alert. More alive. -I'm down 5 pounds from where I started. I'm sure it's mostly water weight. That's fine. Weight loss was not my objective. -I'd recommend this to those who'd like a "fresh start" with eating.

    Purchased from Etsy in May '14 and strategically placed in the boys' bath, powder room, and basement bath. Compliance is erratic, but I like the sentiment.

    Quinoa 'Fried Rice' - Made on 4.21.18. I actually prefer the consistency of quinoa to rice. A pretty good hack...but next time I need to use PLAIN quinoia instead of veg flavored. Must try again.

    Mini Apple Cinnamon Pie Pockets. Made these for my book club last night. Well, to be honest, Lauren Coates made them. She made some apple, some peach, and some blueberry and topped them with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. So yummy and the perfect portions for a ladies' gathering. Will make them again for sure!
