Iâ€™m really enjoying the â€œeat it, donâ€™t move itâ€ challenge because itâ€™s forcing me to become more creative with my mealsâ€¦ and eat all those veggies lurking in my freezer and fridge!
This hot salad included:
- Arugula base
- Roasted 1/2 sweet potato
- Roasted polenta slices
- Roasted broccoli
- Drizzle of balsamic
Todayâ€™s table was a step stool:
I also had some chips + salsa earlier.
Letâ€™s seeâ€¦ so far, Iâ€™ve gotten a lot of book and blog work done, worked on the Healthy Living Summit, and went mattress shopping with the Husband. We donâ€™t want to move our 15 year-old hand-me-down mattress so weâ€™re just buying a new one at a chain (Original Mattress Factory) and having it delivered to our new place on Monday.
Mattress shopping is one of those grown-up activities that Iâ€™ve never had the pleasure of experiencing. :) I actually really liked it â€“ all we basically did was lay on mattresses and try not to think about how much money we were spending.
Mattress shopping produced a big debate on whether weâ€™d buy a silk or wool bed, especially since we donâ€™t buy leather products. Luckily, it wasnâ€™t really an issue because the OMF doesnâ€™t use those materials in their beds (opting for a polyester blend instead). I honestly donâ€™t know anything about the silk or wool industries and their treatment of animalsâ€¦ do you?
I guess I never thought twice about buying a wool coat, but now that I consider itâ€¦ thereâ€™s a lot of wool to be produced in the world. Canâ€™t be the most humane material. Side note: Obviously I know that sheep arenâ€™t killed for their wool; Iâ€™m more curious about the conditions that they are raised and kept in.
Now, Iâ€™m on the hunt for a floor model version of the bed we chose â€“ that way, weâ€™ll save 15%. Worth a shot!
Off to work I go!
