    Primal Fuel
    Looks like you guys were having fun. You, BTW, are looking beautiful. Fun to be doing things with your mom. Never had that experience. But then, I had a righteous dad:-) who was always rarin' to go!

    Not to get you on another sugary thing, but maybe it wouldn't be as addicting. My youngest makes homemade ice cream with flavorings (her orange chili ice cream was the most amazing), coconut milk, and just a few dates. Not sure that's at all helpful, but dates are sweet -- and while not exactly primal -- they are a whole food. Just a thought.

    We don't have HEB in this part of Texas We have United Supermarkets. They are a good local Texas chain, but they don't carry the sugar free stuff

    Glad you guys enjoyed the pictures! It was one fun weekend this past weekend! We'll be at the ball game again this Sunday night. We get in free through my job.

    Another morning having a hard time getting out of bed, but that's because I went to bed so late. I almost slept in and didn't work out, but my mind over rode my body's request. The mind knew that the body wouldn't work right without at least 10 minutes of something.

    Gabi had her final concert for 6th grade as a violinist. This is her final orchestra concert for a while. Next year is choir. Thank goodness, because I don't have to worry if she'll practice or not! She sings all the time So, we have a tradition with post concert time. I'm debating whether to keep it or not, but I did keep it tonight. I'm not sure how true they were to their word, but Orange Leaf had a gluten free and no sugar added chocolate fro yo. That, combined with blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, some walnuts, and coconut flakes (I'm sure those may have been slightly sweetened) made a tasty treat. I didn't want to go back for seconds and I managed to avoid craving my kids creation. Actually, all of the fro yo was gluten free tonight. So, I caved. I might need to find a new post concert tradition. We've been doing that since my brother was in orchestra.....

    Today
    B: 5 pcs bacon, 2 fried eggs
    S: 1 large avocado, handful of macadamias with some of the leftover butter from the kiev recipe.
    L: the last of the smoked brisket and sausage. Salad with my homemade dressing
    D: Jason's Deli BLT hold the bread and some steamed veggies with EVOO and a little salt
    Dessert: Orange Leaf Fro Yo, gluten free, no sugar added chocolate with blue, black, and strawberries, walnuts, and shredded coconut
    Drinks: Water
    Exercise: 10 min trainer Cardio.

    Most likely sweetened with aspartame but whatever- as long as you recognise the dangers of falling back into sugar and monitor accordingly you should be fine! Sleep well tonight alesse!

    It didn't taste like aspartame to me. I know that sweetener anywhere. My younger self made the decision that wasn't for me. Blech. The fro yo itself wasn't too sweet, but it definitely wasn't dark chocolate. Tomorrow night with my group should be fun. I think I'll make sure to bring a snack for myself to munch on so I'm not tempted to eat whatever sweets might be there. Of course, I'll fill up on fats and protiens, and take some asorbic acid first. It's now up to my will power to steer me in the right direction!

    Does Gabi like steak? Maybe that could be the new treat after concerts. Sounds like the yogurt was fun though.

    Yep, choir is a heck of a lot easier than violins and pianos and clarinets and such. You can even practice in the shower and in the car!

    You remind me that I've been wanting to look up the nutrition facts for the frozen yogurt place nearest to us. My favorite flavor is the original tart, although I am sure it still has plenty of sugar in it. Once I know how much, at least I can make an informed decision. Topped with fruit and nuts like yours was, I'm sure it can be an occasional indulgence.

    Sounds like a good treat to me, as long as it doesn't kick up your sugar cravings. We do have to have fun sometimes too, it's just a matter of finding the best way to do it!
