I’m Really Trying…

Steamed kale and slivered almonds

It’s after 8 pm and I’m not supposed to snack.  Most nights I get home later – today it was groceries and signing up for my community garden plot.  I’m excited about that!

My groceries were simple – 10 bunches of kale (I had a rain check because we ran out last week!) Lots of people are eating kale these days.  And some Nature Valley granola bars.  They were on sale too, so I bought some for my walk on Sunday.

There’s a big motivator behind the not snacking tonight!  I haven’t “over eaten” my calories today.

I’ve just blanched 3 heads of kale and I think I will do one more batch before I hit the sack.  Tomorrow I will make some kale chips and blanch the rest.  Or I’ll make some kale soup – maybe!

How do you eat your kale these days?  I’m going to attach some links and then I’m going to check them out! So have a good night!  Thanks for keeping me on track tonight!




About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
