This weekend so not a typical weekend at all here! I can’t tell you the last time I have been sick, but I was quickly reminded of 2 things.
1. I don’t like being sick
2. I’m not a good sick person. Meaning, I’m not good at resting! I hate just sitting around, but that is what my body required this weekend.
Being sick is SO not marvelous. I kept my water bottle full, and made myself eat my fruits and veggies. Thanks for all the advice on your tips and tricks on getting better! I seriously never left the couch on Saturday. Luvy kept me entertained. There is never a dull moment around here!
Plus, he cleaned our house and mowed the lawn, which was marvelous!! I’m so blessed!! I honestly don’t know what I would do without him.
Sunday, I mustered up the energy to go to church, but I came home before Sunday School. I just had no energy left. Luvy left for church while I was in the shower. When I got there, I realized we were dressed as twinkies!! 🙂
He is one good lookin’ guy! After a nap on Sunday, I felt much better! I’m on the mend!!
Today, I’m not back 100%. I’m still really tired, but I feel marvelous compared to this weekend! I’m going to take it easy this week too so that I allow my body to completely restore.
My appetite still isn’t back, and I’ve been living off of small meals and lots of GF oatmeal. It is crazy, but I haven’t wanted any nut butter at all!! So not like me! I didn’t even want my favorite snack that I made for Meatless Monday!! Don’t worry… no food was wasted. I ate it…every delicious bite!
This weeks Meatless Monday is Dates.
I had big plans for dates. I had plans to make homemade Larabars, but since I never left the couch that didn’t happen. So, I’ll share my absolute favorite date snack, and I even used my big girl camera instead of my iphone! Aren’t you lucky??
It is simple. It is easy. And it is delicious!
Open up your date like so:
Stuff with nut butter of choice. My favorite is Trader Joe’s raw almond butter.
Top with granola for crunch. This is optional, but I wouldn’t leave it out!
Sorry to be a slacker Heather... I’ll be a better #MMAZ friend next week! 🙂
How was your weekend?? Details please!
Do you like dates? How do you like to eat them??
