Where Did That Come From?

by Courtney on May 25, 2010

Sorry for the backup on posts this morning guys.  I woke up early this morning to get ready for work, but instead was welcomed with a massive migraine headache. :oops:  I have no idea what could have caused it, but this baby has been no fun, so I actually ended up having to take the day off of work, and I headed back to bed to try to rest up.  Luckily things are slowly improving :)

I didn’t have too much of an appetite this morning (migraines tend to do that sometimes?) so I kept things light and simple with a cereal combo bowl (Quaker Oatmeal Squares + Kashi Go Lean) with light vanilla soy milk.

I also had some fresh mixed berries on the side which were delicious.  Jay found these blueberries at the store yesterday for only $1.99…I was so psyched that he knew well enough to get 2 containers :-D

I’m starting to get some good questions coming in!  Here’s a few:

Q: What are your thoughts on soy milk?  I’ve read so much controversy that I’ve switched to almond milk…

A:I’ve also read a lot of the controversy on soy milk, and I’ve also read a lot of the benefits.  While I certainly wouldn’t consider myself well-versed on the pros & cons of soy milk, I’ve decided that for now, I’m going to stick with it.  The amount that I consume during any given week is pretty small (maybe 3-4 cups total?) so at this point I’m not concerned.  There are a few side effects that I’ve read about, however, that I have experienced, so I am thinking about cutting it out for a week or two to see if I notice any difference.

Q: What is one of your favorite “guilty pleasure” foods?

A: If I’m going sweet, it’s most definitely a BIG ice cream flurry with caramel, oreos, & cookie dough.  If I’m going salty, then it’s gotta be sweet potato fries.  They’re my favorite!

Q: What is one of your favorite magazines:

A: I currently have subscriptions to Self, Shape, Glamour, & Cooking Light.  (Yes, too many, but I like them all!)

Q: When are you coming back to Burlington, VT? lol :)

A: Hopefully soon!  Jay and I had such a GREAT time when we visited back in April, but it was a little chilly so we didn’t get to do everything we hoped.  We’re thinking maybe sometime over the summer…if we do, I’ll let you know, Kara!

Q: What’s your favorite TV show (besides Cougar Town)?

A: One Tree Hill!!!  I’m obsessed with this show…I couldn’t BELIEVE the ending last week for the season finale!  I cried like a baby :oops: hehe

Keep those questions comin’! :-D

I’m going to take it easy for the morning and hopefully be back up and running soon!

Those oatmeal squares ARE good. So sorry to hear about your headache. Those are the worst. Just debilitating really.

I loved your answer about the soy–honestly, there are so many things in this world that could be bad for you–some people say its bad, some days its good–at the end of the day, eat what you want just not too much of anything and in my opinion youll be good to go.
