Check out the neighbors that stopped over for a visit this morning!! Sometimes I have to pinch myself that this former city-mouse has become a country mouse. Very country!
I fasted until midday so that I could do my fructose lab test (negative results, yay!). Then I hit the gym for a strength training workout before I took my son to the local community toddler pool. We’ve started swimming lessons, so I thought we could get some practice in today — so fun to watch him enjoying water!!
It’s really important to me that we have a healthy and active lifestyle with our family so I try to lead by example and that means getting my butt to the gym and making time to work out with recreational family activities.
Tonight was a date night and so my husband and we revisited the local Celiac-friendly restaurant in New Paltz, NY…Rock da Pasta.
I got a modified chicken pasta dish (minus the fodmap veggies and dairy). I really appreciated the willingness to adapt the dish to my dietary restrictions and the extra effort the restaurant takes to avoid any cross-contamination. I definitely recommend visiting if you’re near upstate NY!
We had gotten a gluten free brownie dessert to go but ended up forgetting it (!) while I was texting the babysitter…so for healthy sweet treat I made a banana-cocoa-coconut smoothie. (I actually called the restaurant and they put my package into the fridge and held it for me to pick up!! So nice!)
In this smoothie:
- coconut milk
Time to cuddle for a movie with my hunny!
