So, today was another busy day. I started with a very late (breakfast)! nearly 10:30! I was so busy in the morning with an important meeting. No worries. I ate a good healthy breakfast as soon as I got home. My homemade gluten free granola is super good for you. I added extra flax seeds and goji berries and fresh blueberries to make it an even healthier winner! Since I had such a late lunch, I really only needed to eat an avocado and some turkey jerky for my lunch. Don’t judge me please! And tonight I had my mom over for her birthday dinner! We served grilled salmon with fruit salsa and grilled asparagus. I couldn’t get any fresh mangoes or papayas so I made up my own fruit salsa with what I could buy that was fresh. I fed them all mini croissants as well as chocolate brownies for dessert. Gluten filled croissants and brownies. haha. none for me! Whatever it takes right. Oh I had some lovely bubbles with dinner. That’s my dessert. Happy Birthday MOM! I love you!
