Lunch Time

Lunch Time. I am starting to think that maybe my lovely wife is trying to add a few inches to my waist line. Hmm, but it does look tasty. Home made bread too. She can whip things up so quickly, and the best part what she makes tastes and looks good too.

Rice Crispy Squares

So my sweet tooth got the better of me today and my lovely wife made up some Rice Crispy Squares. Easy to make, and I am thinking there will be a few left for Halloween too. Maybe. And as you know there are no calories there to speak off. Right?

Home Made Bread

So I got a hankering for some home made bread. The wife being such a nice wife made me some LOL. Along with some Cinnamon Rolls and a few buns thrown in for good measure. I am watching my waist line these days, so these should help things out a bit.

Morning Report Oct 12/19

It’s a rainy day here for us in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Not the greatest weather to start off a Thanksgiving Weekend. But not much we can do about it other than make the best of it. Yesterday my lovely wife and I went to North Bay and had supper at Lott 88 with our son Karl. Had a great meal a bottle of fine wine and to top things off a piece of Baileys cheesecake. Can’t get much better than that. After supper, we picked up a few things at the grocery store and came home arriving back in Port Loring around 7:00 PM. Seems no matter how we try going to North Bay takes a full day. Today I have a bit of shop work to do with a few people dropping by to pick up orders. It will be a full day. On another note we had to turn the oil furnace on this morning to take the dampness out of the house. Feels good too. I don’t like to start the wood furnace till it gets freezing. I still have to till up my veggie garden yet, but I am waiting till the leaves are all down as I like to put them in the garden before tilling. Makes for a really nice fertilizer and soil rejuvenater come spring. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 9.8 C | 49.64 F. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and a bite to eat.

Lunch

So thinking a bite to eat is warranted. Salmon lettuce sandwiches and a bowl of home made tomato basil soup, all from our own vegetable garden. On another note, I managed to get our car washed this morning, and wiped down. After lunch, I will put a coat of wax on the old feller. Sure is a nice day for it.

Supper Time

Here is a picture of our supper for tonight that my lovely wife made. Two meat pies with leftover roast mixed with all kinds of vegetables. Sure tasty. Also, some fresh broccoli from our garden, with a dip which just makes you want to eat more.

The best Foods To Eat For Breakfast

  1. Top of the List : Oatmeal is a nutritional powerhouse. It contains beta gluten, which is a thick, sticky fiber that helps a person to feel full for longer and may also lower cholesterol. Also, great for lowering blood pressure.
  2. Eggs Some people think that eggs are unhealthful because of the amount of cholesterol they contain. However, research has shown that the dietary cholesterol from eggs has only a minor impact on bad cholesterol, or low-density lipoprotein (LDL), in the blood.
  3. Nuts, eating nuts is another excellent way to get enough protein. Nuts also contain antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, and heart-healthful fats.
  4. Coffee also offers other health benefits due to its antioxidants, which help fight inflammation.
  5. Berries Berries such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, are an excellent way to start the morning. They are low in calories, high in fiber, and contain disease-fighting antioxidants.
  6. Flax seeds The health benefits of flax seed include lowering blood levels of cholesterol, improving insulin sensitivity, lowering blood sugar, and even protecting against cancer.
  7. Greek yogurt is another excellent source of protein to eat in the morning. Greek yogurt is thick and creamy and contains more protein than regular strained yogurt.
  8. Greek yogurt is also rich in calcium and contains probiotics that help support a healthy gut and immune system.
  9. Tea These teas contain some caffeine but not as much as coffee. Tea can also help a person stay hydrated.
  10. Cottage cheese is also rich in B vitamins, vitamin A, and calcium. People can eat cottage cheese by itself, or mix it with other savory foods, such as pepper and spring onions, or fruit or nuts.
  11. Bananas contain resistant starch. The body does not digest resistant starch, so it travels through the body unchanged, which helps support digestive health. Unripe bananas contain more resistant starch than ripe bananas, which have more natural sugars.
