Celebrating Mardi Gras

Today is Fat Tuesday.

Is it sad that I am celebrating it by putting chocolate chips in my breakfast?

Life has changed from the days of fun junk foods! Life is so much better now.

[I am blogging my meals this week- every last bite- to show you how I eat and why I eat it.]

This morning I ate a big yogurt BOMBA. Why? I was very hungry and had yogurt on the mind.

Chocolate chips were added in celebration. I had a heavy hand.

I also had more Post Shredded Wheat Vanilla Almond cereal and lots of fresh raspberries.

Raspberries are not in season and I feel guilty buying them, but I bought them anyway.

I measure my portions, did I mention that?

The magic formula: 1 container plain Greek yogurt + 1 serving cereal + 14 g choc chips + 80-100 g raspberries

The result? A perfect breakfast.

Dive right in.



And a LOVEly Weekend.

    Hey! I followed you over here from Gina’s blog. I think what you are doing for Lent is great!! Although I don’t participate in Lent I am going to start doing more things for strangers. Whenever I do a random act of kindness I feel so happy and much more positive about everything. Good luck giving up sugar!!!
