Today I have "Aloo-Gobhi Paratha" on the breakfast menu for day 5 of BM# 16.

Third thought of the day = Whaaat? I have forgotten to get the wild leek for my recipe making du jour! The answer to all of the questions above I think lies partly in the so called Supermoon that visited this weekend. ( I never really sleep during the full moon and this was a supermoon, geez..) By looking at the pictures I guess you can see that the Universe DID answer my prayer and real fast too! I just happened to call my mom and she just happened to have some wild leek in her freezer, then she picked me up and on the way home to her she just happened to remember that secret place in the forest where the wild leek grows like crazy. I suppose now is the time to let you know that there really is nothing psychedelic about these spring rolls aside from their bright colorful appearance.

You may have noticed that my little corner of the internet has been heavy on meatless dishes lately. Veggies rule in our house – at least until Good Friday. I have to admit I’m getting into finding new ways to fix vegetables, grains, and beans without any meat to add flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good ribeye steak or a piece of fried chicken but eating lighter feels pretty good. Asparagus is one of our “go-to” vegetables.

I brainstormed some ideas for fat-free or low-fat meals and snacks, listed below.

All of the special fat-free ingredients I mention below, like fat-free salad dressing or fat-free mayo, are easy to buy at any grocery store.

Instead of getting overwhelmed I stopped and took a moment to be thankful for what I have….. ….A crazy/awesome family, a supportive and loving hubby, a healthy baby girl (after many trials and tribulations), a way to get around, a roof over my head, a job to go to every day, both legs/eyes/arms and health, just to name a few.
