Good evening dollies! How is your Sunday night going? Mine is very relaxing and I like it! The massage today was UNREAL. I actually came sooo close to falling asleep.
After the massage, I did some quick g-shopping on the way home. Actually, that’s a lie. I took my sweet, sweet time. Duncan & I usually go grocery shopping together and he tends to keep me “in line” and efficient… however, I was solo today & just meandered around the whole store like a nona.
When I get home, the boy was already cooking dinner! Can you believe it?! He had the help of his friend, McCain. You may have heard of him? … that’s right, we had some nice McCain frozen pizza :). I was quite happy to have the night off!
Now… onto the meal plan for the week …

Your challenge this week – should you choose to accept it – is to use flax meal whenever possible. Flax is a good source of soluble fibre & alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which is an omega-3 fatty acid. Flax also contains phytochemicals called lignans, compounds thought to help guard against breast cancer. Basically, the stuff’s good for ya… so try having it ;) Word to the wise, though … whole flax seeds cannot pass through your GI system undigested, which means you won’t be able to receive any nutritional benefit. So, you can either buy flax meal (very simple & cheap!) or grind whole flax seeds in a coffee grinder. Add 1-2 tbsp of ground flax into oatmeal, yogurt, add it to smoothies, sprinkle it over toast… the possibilities are endless!
Good luck with your challenge & have a great restful night :)
