Going to yard sales and my do I get hungry. Got some healthy snacks ready! Will pack sandwiches as well. I buy low carb soy flaxseed bread. I make sure the lunch meat is no sugar added. I weigh nut into 1 oz snack bags and measure strawberries into 1 cup containers. Silk Almond milk has 30 calories and no carbs and 1 cup has 45% of my daily calcium. Skim milk has 80 calories and 12 (sugar)carbs and 1 cup has 30% of my daily calcium. So sugar free almond is the winner hands down. I buy the vanilla flavor too.
Between my mother's hand-me-downs, my old "skinny clothes" and yard sales, I've got lots of clothes to wear now for summer & winter.
Already went to one yard sale today, an estate sale, and got myself a coffee grinder. Will gring coffee and my golden flax seeds into meal to make breads.
What are your plans for the weekend?

Took 14 yr old daughter to psychiatrist today. She is doing well. He is sending her for blood work to make sure her Zoloft is not affecting her metabolically. Afterwards we went to the Mexican market and bought 4 large onions, 1 bunch celery, 1 large bunch spinach, 2 large green bell pepper, 1 lb strawberries, 1 head lettuce, 1 avocado & 3 Mexican zucchini, was $10.
Went home & made dinner. Diced up green bell pepper & onion. Sliced up 1 cup lettuce & 2 large spinach leaves. Diced up 1/2 avocado. Sauteed 6 oz small chicken pieces with 1 c. onion & 1 c. bell pepper in 2 T extra virgin olive oil. Cooked 2 La Tortilla Smart & Delicious taco shells (3 net carbs each) in pan until lightly brown. Put meat mixture in taco shells, topped with lettuce, spinach & avocado. This is how I make delicious food with no cheese for daughter. She doesn't care for most cheeses.
Dessert was sliced strawberries in whipped cream.

My daughter is 14. She has a heart defect, fibromyalgia, mild Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and anxiety disorder. She's on 100 mg of Zoloft & 5 mg of Melatonin.
Once in a great while she is up all night & I don't know because I fell asleep. When I wake up, she's up. Takes her a few days to get her energy back.
She's been on her meds for a year now and doing very well emotionally.
Her harms are so long and gangly, her fingers long too, her feet are longer than mine.
She grew 4 inches since age 12 when she started menses.
I'm thinking that she might be growing more, tired lately, has a huge appetite, is 5'3" and weighs 100 lbs. She eats more than I do and is less active than I am.
