Ok, so last night I stopped at two stores.

Yellow mustard 20 oz - 0.65
Brown rice spaghetti - 1.89
3lbs red delicious apples - 3.39

6 oz bag of pepitas - 2.19

Used a $5 gift card

This morning I made a 3 bean veggie chili for my lunches. In a bit I'll be washing dishes and some other chores.

Later tonight I'm making barbeque and roasted potatoes for dinner (soy curls and homemade bbq sauce)

Swagbucks is being torturous to earn anything right now. Geesh! Luckily I completed a 50 sb survey on my second try today, otherwise I may have just given up for this month. (getting monthly master bonus)

I really need to get outside today - a balmy 34 degrees! I walked to the library and back yesterday in 22 degrees. Smile

I should finish book #2 today, and start book #3 - The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant Based Nutrition. I saw it recommended in several places, so am curious to see what it may offer.

I updated our YNAB budget with all of the end of 4th qtr amounts. Our networth went up 4.6% for the 4th qtr. (I only update retirement/investments at the end of each quarter.)

I'm starting to feel somewhat better finally - a little bit of energy even. Hopefully this means I'll get some tasks accomplished. I'm SO far behind on stuff it isn't funny ...

    We are up to a balmy 37 degrees and what a joy! Of course they are calling for freezing rain today so that isn't a joy which is to be followed by snow. Hope they are incorrect.

    Snow - a major storm - is predicted here on Thursday. At least we'll be above zero ...

    Becoming Vegan is a good book on plant-based nutrition, if you haven't already read it. Also, I started making kombucha several months ago and I've noticed a difference in my immunity and overall health since I've been drinking some every day. I also take a NOW vegan probiotic almost every night.

    Starfishy - it's a little better today

    Kashi - I think I've read that book - sounds familiar

    I'll have to look into kombuchu ... my immunity stinks. (partly why I've gone this direction nutritionally ... trying to find my energy again)
