Plus it means I get to have Spicy Peanut Sauce 😄 Win!See this image largerChanging up glass #4 with 7 oz ginger infused water with 1 oz of unsw. cranberry juice and 1/2 tsp chia seeds. Let gel. Touch of fiber/protein, and vaguely reminiscent of a bubble tea! [Thanks Pick up Limes]See this image largerMade two Bloody Marys- each: 6oz V8 w/1oz vodka. Made FOUR veg/pickle skewers(are pickles a veggie?🤔). Keeping myself honest and counting both beverages as one veg serving😄 BTW I really miss having a professional make my cocktails for me!

See this image largerThey can't all be 🌈 winners can they? 😄 Adding kale too soon tends to "Army Green" things up a bit! Walnut Puttanesca over Spaghetti Squash. (Walnuts, diced tomatoes, olives×2, capers, cabbage, kale, spices in random/haphazard amounts!) Truth. #eattherainbowSee this image largerYuck. It's a reminder to appreciate/take advantage of EVERYTHING good in life while you have it. No matter how small or inconsequential it may seem...it may be fleeting. I don't mean this to be depressing or a rebuke...just a reminder that "we" tend to take many things for granted. An attitude of gratitude is never a bad thing IMHO.See this image largerSuperbowl Eating Phase 1! 😁 Pesto was a good choice for 1st time trying these. Texture a bit different than pasta, but very neutral taste. Hooray a viable pasta alternative! See this image largerWhoopsie. This salad got a little out of hand!
