Brownie in a Mug?

Brownies in a mug is nothing new, but something I’ve wanted to try to make. From this recipe, it seems easy enough. If I do an experiment and make one, I will be sure to report back here on how my experiment went.

Healthy Eating Update

It’s been a year or so and I’m still continuing on with my healthy eating regiment. I’m trying to eat mostly all vegetarian  meals these days too. As most will remember I had to go back to eating some meat, due to not getting enough protein in my diet. Beans, Soy products, and supplements  were not working for me.

I try to eat any meals with meat as little as possible, though I wish I could find an alternative to get enough protein so I could be completely on a vegetarian diet.  I also eat mostly all organic or home grown fruits, and veggies these days too. I have to say I feel much better and have a lot of energy  too. I also do a lot of cooking at home these days too, rather than going out to eat, since it’s healthier for me to fix my favorite take out dishes. However, I still go out sometimes too hehehe. I also try to get to Places like Trader Joes, Earth Fare, or Whole foods to buy groceries and try my best to buy very little from our local chain stores.

I’ve also have switched from drinking 2 or three sodas a day to only  1 soda a day  with no caffeine. Plus I’m now Interested in drinking  different teas other than  regular “sweet tea”. Plus once in a while I  will have my fav coffee from Starbucks or the  Local place.   Which is a  White mocha or Vanilla Latte  or  White Mocha Frapp,( depends on my mood or season) that is a treat just once in a while or if I need the caffeine if I’m pulling an all nighter for work.

Plus I’m trying to be more active these days from riding my mountain bike to walking ever chance I get. All in all this  healthy living for me is making me feel a lot better than before. Now I wish I started this way of living a long time ago.

Happy 4th

I had a great 4th of July and hope everyone else did too. Friday night our town did their firework celebration, which from where we live ( right in the city) we can sit on the patio and watch the firework display instead of having to get in the traffic.

Then on saturday,my day started off having lunch with some family who was passing through the area heading to the Mountains. Then as the evening approached T and I grilled out for dinner. All in all it was a great day and officially kicked off the countdown to the beach. We’re headed to the beach in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait. Ready for the salt air, sand and sun.
