Saturday's yummy breakfast, something new(ish): wheat berries, skim milk, apples, walnuts, raisins, cinnamon.
Saturday afternoon banana:
Saturday lunch, something borrowed (recipes/ideas, that is): another big arugula salad, with white-bean-puree dip and whole-wheat pita.
Saturday dinner, something old: leftover black bean soup and brown rice.
Saturday dessert: something blue. Siggi's blueberry yogurt with fresh blueberries crammed in.
Healthy? I'd say quite.
Financially smart? Siggi's is pricey. So are blueberries out of season, but otherwise, pretty economical.
Slowness and mindfulness? Not so much.
Satisfying? Very much.
Environmentally friendly: local, organic? I believe the arugula is local, and that's about it.
