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
