More beautiful signs of spring. This bush or tree, not sure are in front of a house on my street. So bright and gorgeous!
When I got home yesterday there was a very heavy box waiting for me, and it turned out to be the pamphlets I'm going to be passing out around town from the Humane League. I haven't looked through one yet because to be honest I'm scared it has graphic pictures and I just am very sensitive to those like most of us. I follow a few people on Twitter and Instagram who post graphic pictures and it's very hard. Sometimes I'm tempted to unfollow them, but at the same time it is the truth of what's happening, and in a way those images are what made me decide to volunteer with the Humane League.
I picked up some Maca powder yesterday. I was reading about it, and apparently it can be beneficial to people who have thyroid issues. I'm going to be putting a teaspoon into my smoothies everyday. I have noticed an improvement since I started taking ashwagandha, so I'm feeling hopeful that with a good diet and some helpful herbs I can heal my thyroid!
It's like the universe read my blog yesterday and decided to cut me a gluten free break! This isn't bread of course, but I used to love these Nature's Bakery fig newton style cookies and their chocolate brownies before I was gluten free. They make gluten free versions, but I refuse to buy them because they are DOUBLE the price of the gluten versions. Because this box is all banged up they were on a Woo Hoo sale so I got to try them! They're really good! The texture is nice and I like the tart pomegranate flavor.
For dinner last night, I made this chilaquiles casserole.It's just tortilla chips layered with homemade enchilada sauce, black beans, fire roasted corn, red onion, and a handful of vegan shreds. It's a great use for tortilla chips. I always end up with half a bag slowly dying a stale death in my pantry.
Here is a very rare moment when all five of the babies were in bed together. That seriously never happens. It's a dreary rainy day so I guess it makes everyone want to cuddle.
This is how Roxy was sleeping last night! She likes to sleep in some of the most adorable positions, it's hard not to wake her up to tell her how cute she is! But then again, she already knows it!
