Another MIMM hook-up at Healthy Diva Eats hosted by Katie, thank you Katie for being a wonderful host. I had a Super Marvelous Mother’s Day weekend. My cousin Rosa, who I hadn’t seen for a very, very long time was in town with her daughter and best friend Doris. Rosa is amazing, she hasn’t always eaten as healthy as she does now, she has lost an amazing amount of weight and is currently working on her PhD. Pictured below Doris, Gina and Rosa.
We got together at my brother’s house for a dinner of salads, veggie salad, pasta salad and I supplied the kale avocado salad and a blackberry, mango and strawberry fruit salad, my brother also gilled some chicken breast and asparagus. I loaded my plate with every thing except the chicken, because I don’t eat meat. I am so sorry I forgot to take a picture of the food, but trust me it looked good and it was good.
Sunday was a Mother/Daughter day, I got in an early evening run and found some rather tasty eats at Whole Foods. Why have I not had this before? I found the world’s best popcorn. Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Applewood Smoked White Cheddar popcorn. It’s light and airy and has no artificial preservatives or favors and the best part is that it’s only $1.99.
There were lots of tasting stations at Whole Foods this weekend, one that stood out for me was Nate’s Raw Harvest, they were very tasty and good for you raw pre-soaked organic nut and seed mixes.

I think that eating raw can be very beneficial to our health, (check out this prior post). I am familiar with Ezekiel 4:9 bread, but this weekend I found the Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted cereal, I picked up a box of the Almond variety. I’ll let you know what I think.
