The truth is....

   So yesterday Keith and I went grocery shopping now I thought I would share our list with you. Which can be found here. This weekend we went to Earthgrown Market, filled our grocery cart to the top, started freaking out because we thought it was going to cost loads, and ended up only spending $111.19. We bought A LOT of fruits and vegetables. So funny story: At this shop the cranberries are sold by weight and yesterday I went to measure some out (about a pound.) I kept putting scoops in the bag and I would stop and weigh it out, I did this three times. Finally I got the needle to point to the one. About five minutes later I saw Keith measure out the sunflower seeds and I notice that their are two number ones. The first one in black measured a pound and the BIG red number one was a kilo. Now I know this may not be as funny to read on here but every time I look at the bag of cranberries, I cannot help but laugh and think how dumb I was to think such a big bag of cranberries only weighed a pound.
   Anyways enough of that. So Keith wanted to make sure and let you all know that we are unable to do Insanity everyday. It kinda sucks but it is true. With both of us doing physical therapy and working till 7 it is not easy to fit it in our schedule. But Keith has started to do Insanity and work and I do it any day I don't have physical therapy. I do feel like a see a difference in my appearance, I don't think it a massive change but my clothes are definitely looser which is always great.
   Oh I thought I would share a recipe with you today! I made it up and it can be changed to fit your taste buds!!!!
Nut Bars 
  • 1 cup of crushed Almonds
  • 1 cup of Sunflower seeds
  • 1cup of Raisins
  • 1 cup of Dried Cranberries
  • 2-3 Table spoons of Honey
          Mix these all together and you will have a nice little mix. This can then be separated into little bars to eat as a snack or you could take a cup of the mix add some fresh cut fruit and almond milk and you have cereal for breakfast ! :) Simple, virtually no mess, and AMAZING!!!!
