Day 4: The Fresh Diet

Today, I deviated from the set menu and went out to lunch. Did my best to be pretty healthy about it and not eat a bunch of junk. But I then combined my lunch and dinner entrees to one meal which was MORE than enough.


Multi-Grain Pancakes with Fresh Raspberries & Cherry Yogurt

One pancake, I ate it with a touch of butter. About 8 small raspberries – they were quite good. Gave the yogurt to my son because it is so sour. Added a boiled egg for some protein.


Mini Whole Wheat Pocket Filled with Curried Egg Salad

This snack was good and more filling than some of the meals (especially breakfast) have been. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had added a touch of salt or paprika, but it was good.

Lunch (Ate this as a side salad with dinner)

Blue Cheese Salad with Baby Corn, Hearts of Palm, Romaine Lettuce & Sun Dried Tomato with Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Another really good salad, although I didn’t know what hearts of palm were and the baby corn is always weird to me. Ha!


Home Style Crab Cake with Brown Rice with Pecans & Scallions and Sautéed Eggplant

I like crab cake okay, but I think I normally have it with some sort of sauce. Eating it dry with dry brown rice was a struggle, but I did make myself finish it. I didn’t see one pecan or one scallion either. The eggplant was okay but not tasty, so I didn’t finish it.


Mixed Fresh Berries with Creamy Ricotta Cheese Dip.

Berries were great! Ricotta cheese dip was better than other days, but still not high on my favorites list.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
