Wow, it was quite a full weekend! The kids had a 4-H performing arts competition on Friday. Colleen had a senior meeting on Saturday along with a golfing outing with the senior class. Then we had church Saturday night, a performance Sunday morning, a last minute seminar Sunday afternoon, and still all of the usual chores and responsibilities. I’m amazed that I wasn’t exhausted at the end of the weekend.
A couple of months ago, we made a few changes to our diet. We’ve always eaten fairly healthy, but we significantly increased our intake of raw vegetables by adding a small salad to the side of most of our dinners. As a result, we’ve been eating less starch at dinner, and we haven’t been craving the sweets like we used to. I think these changes are why I had more energy and more focus during all of this craziness. My niece recommended a book to me which talks about how healthy a vegan diet is. I think it’s time to read it! I don’t think I’m ready to make what I consider an extreme change, but I’m at least willing to take a look. I’ll let you know what I find.
