Whole Foods Wednesday – Why Are Egg Sammiches Not Good For You?!

I love food. Like, LOVE FOOD.

And breakfast sammiches rank hiiiiiigh on my list of favorites. And I could (and if my health wouldn’t suffer for it, would…) eat them every day!

But I don’t, because that’s not balance. When I start my morning with a good-for-me breakfast, most often, the rest of the day just flows much better!

I still enjoy a bagel (boy do I enjoy it!) or a breakfast sammich, because, BALANCE… but for me, my health, and my goals, that’s not the norm, and I’m grateful I enjoy, and my body responds well to, cleaner breakfasts!

Today: farina with a tsp of Maple syrup, cinnamon, apples and walnuts – so good!

Slow Cooker Saturday – Crockpot Honey Pork and Apples

Ahhh, the slow cooker. A New England staple! I love it because it means my husband get’s a break from cooking all night (though he does love cooking — I am blessed!), plus everything is always cooked to perfection!

With snowy weather, it’s a bonus – dinner can cook while you are sledding, shoveling, or just enjoying the peaceful tranquility that comes with snowfall (I LOVE the peacefulness!)

I love a nice pork loin, and I LOVE apples, so this pairing gets a huge thumbs up from me! YUM!

Whole Foods Wednesday – Apples

It’s apple season! I couldn’t be happier about it, either. I love apples, and I love that they are so good for me, and so Diabetic-friendly.

I am sure you are seeing your friends and family posting tons of apple pictures on social media, right? Apple picking is my favorite 🙂

Do you have a favorite kind of apple? Do you have any awesome recipes you would like to share?

Oh, and have you gone apple picking yet?!apples
