Feel Good Monday

*It's National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. Please take a moment to check out this site: NEDA. *

Morning, folks! I can't believe the weekend is over already. It was such a fantastic one. Last night, I snuggled with Big Boy on the couch and we all watched Undercover Boss. I think I have a new show to add to the DVR! I really enjoyed that.

Both boys were so great this morning. Makes for a happy Monday! Baby Boy woke me up by sticking his fingers in my mouth. Cool. :0) They were so pleasant and were ready for school. I just love mornings like this!

For breakfast, I decided to go with an energizing Green Monster. I am addicted to these things! I love all things coconut and wanted to try something different with my GM. I had picked up a can of coconut juice at the Asian grocery store a couple months ago that I've been dying to try.

I recommend checking out your local Asian grocery stores for produce and things like tofu. It's usually a bit cheaper than regular stores and the selection of healthy products are pretty great. Of course, there are tons of foods that contain MSG and all that mess, so check labels!

My GM contained:
  • 1 T ground flax
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup coconut juice
  • 1 cup almond milk
Mmmm, mmmm, great! The coconut juice added an extra yum factor to the GM. Try it, you'll like it! This promises to be another busy week. We are also preparing things for Monster Jam! Whoop!

In honor of NEDA Awareness Week, Caitlin listed 10 positive qualities about herself without mentioning appearance. I felt inspired to do the same! Please share your list in the comments section!

1. I am a caring and good mama to two beautiful and healthy children.
