Meatless Monday and Christmas Love
Happy Monday everyone Did anyone enjoy a meatless meal today in celebration of Meatless Monday?
I have a wonderful beet salad recipe to share with all of you as my meatless meal this week It’s a great salad to serve when you have guests over; it is classy and very tasty, but simple to prepare! I also developed a homemade vinaigrette that accompanies this salad perfectly
2 cups romaine
1 cup radicchio, shredded
2 beets, boiled, peeled, and sliced
Goat cheese, crumbled
1 Tbsp white onion, chopped
1 cup basil leaves, loosely packed
2 TBSP water
2 TBSP white vinegar
6 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground pepper
Add all ingredients into blender (or Magic Bullet!) and blend. Use as salad dressing on Beet Salad.
My Mom and I love beets, so we both thoroughly enjoyed this salad Hopefully you will, too!
Today was another wonderful day with my Mom School was even wonderful today, too! I had my favourite class, Nutritional and Dietary Assessment, this morning and we learnt all about nutrition during pregnancy It was so interesting It is definitely an area that I am wanting to learn much more about which is great because one of my courses next term, Nutrition Throughout the Lifecycles, is all about how nutrition changes throughout the lifecycle!
After class, my Mom and I spent our time doing more Christmas shopping Most of our purchases were decorations for my Christmas tree! We spent a ton of time finding the perfect decorations at Canadian Tire
I only had lights on my Christmas tree before, but now it is beautifully decorated …
We found cute little Christmas birdies to clip on my tree!
And that’s the finished product! I think it’s pretty good for my first very own Christmas tree
My Mom and I will be watching the new Two and a Half Men tonight! Is anyone else going to be watching it tonight?
I think I will get to bed early tonight as I am already feeling a little sleepy I want to be well rested for the gym tomorrow It’s back and biceps training, so I will be sharing a new routine with you! Last week I had a chance to test my new routine out and my biceps were screaming by the end
So get ready for a good one!
My Mom got to meet one of my best friends tonight I am so thankful for having such great friends
