Hi all! I didn't get to post yesterday...we are having major computer problems at home!
Here's my wonderful food from yesterday:
frozen fruit sorbet
hummus with a whole yellow pepper
I have found that I am a slice and dipper I'm happy to have a sliced veggie to dip in hummus or some other "dressing" and just munch down! Having the hummus prepared, and it lasted for several days (4 I think) and really enjoyed just grabbing that and sitting down to eat!
I'll post later about my foods today. Off to the grocery store!
