Give Me Veggies!

by HEAB on August 23, 2010

So, yesterday, Chris and I decided to take another day trip. We definitely packed a lot in this weekend and enjoyed visiting some smaller towns around northern Michigan. Let’s see, our first stop was Boyne City. We picked up sandwiches from the Lake Street Market and ate them down by the harbor.

I had a whole wheat wrap with avocado, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and way toooo much mayo. In my opinion, when avocado is involved, mayonnaise is so not necessary. Oh well, the lovely views made up for it. :)

We then drove through Petoskey, and our next stop was Harbor Springs where we celebrated all that is Michigan with…I’ll give you one guess…

Almond Joy ice-cream from Yummies, the cutest little ice-cream shop ever. Amazing by the way!

Next up was Charlevoix, and by the time we arrived, all I wanted to do was sit down by the water. So, that’s exactly what we did.


Me and my crazy I just took down my ponytail hair. :)

On our way home, we made one last stop to check out Torch Lake, Michigan’s longest inland lake. Look how beautiful…


Honestly, I could have stayed there for hours, but my stomach was rumbling for some CD & Heather food. I’ve so enjoyed our little day trips here in Michigan, but I can only take so many sandwiches-on-the-go, and I totally overdid the ice-cream this weekend. By the time we got home, all I wanted was a big plate of veggies and NOTHING sweet. So, while Chris walked the dogs, I chopped and chopped. We ended up with a big pot of veggie stir-fry. My Paleo lovin husband was in charge of cooking, and so there was butter, bacon, and beef involved. ‘Twas very tasty and very filling, and in very un-HEABlike fashion, I skipped my post-dinner dessert. Usually I eat some oatmeal + nut butter or a baked sweet potato before going to bed, but my body did not want anything sweet. So, I listened. :)


I enter my 3rd trimester this week. Crazy, huh? To all the mamas and mamas-to-be out there, have you read anything about avoiding food allergies in your babies? I’ve heard that if you avoid certain foods during your last few months of pregnancy (wheat, peanuts, etc.), then your baby is less likely to be allergic to them in the future. Thoughts? Please share!

Again, my blog is undergoing some changes, and I’m switching servers. So, if HEAB goes down over the next few days, it will be back online soon. Also, if my posts stop showing up in Google Reader, please resubscribe as I would be very sad to lose any of you!
