There was a summer?
Here we are at the end of the summer, and I didn't even know it had come along. We have been working away and Mike is busy with work and starting new classes at ITT (he teaches there), and I am just drooling away at my job and trying to get things done around the house. The biggest change for us this summer is our decision to "go green" and eat vegetarian style. Not completely vegetarian, we're still transitioning, but a few friends of ours eat a kind of whole foods/vegan diet and it works very well for them as far as health goes, and so we thought we would give it a try. I've made green smoothies now for a couple of weeks, those are fruit smoothies with spinach in them, yum, and we're feeling pretty good. I also got adventurous and made "Veggie Joe's", recipe by my good friend Tami, I'll like her blog, and suprisingly enough it was really good. It smelled just like the real deal, but it was so much more healthy and we feel good when we eat it. I know we get a lot of weird looks and people tell us we're crazy, but can we really get any more weird? We will see where it goes, but I think the sucanat (sugar cane natural, a healthier form of sugar) is here to stay.
