photo cred Cat Just got back from a fabulous mini trip to Cancun, sans l'enfants. It was 3 days, it was beyond glorious but why does my body always have to pay for it?  It was an all-inclusive, need I say more? It was a complete assault on my body. I ate and drank way too much and in a nutshell, my body shut down. Oh I ate all the glorious fruit, fresh guac & salsa I could but let's be honest, I'm was not eating all my usual stuff (you know, the stuff with all the fibre, if you get my drift). But I wasn't completely unprepared. I knew this would happen so I actually brought a ziplock of the magic muesli. I should have had it everyday but the day I did, it worked and I felt instantly better. Next time, I shall eat it every day while I'm away -- and maybe opt for a non-all-inclusive next time. I swear...I'm my own worse enemy sometimes.

photo cred Cat One last Vancouver installment.. I love grocery shopping in different cities because you get to see different things.  I fell upon the cereal isle and was amaze at what I found.  Now as some of you might know I make my own cereal, Magic Muesli, which is a go-to, pretty much every day.  I make a huge batch and both my husband add some fresh fruit and Bob's your uncle. But I do appreciate that not everyone has time to make their own cereal, let alone want to, so let me introduce "Holy Crap" - a product made popular by Dragon's Den.  It's pretty fantastic and it's made in Canada which is a total plus. It has everything you need to start your engine running in the am but also makes a great snack cause it's filling (and don't forget to drink a glass of water after). So that coupled with a gorge green smoothie for lunch, that's a 2 no-brainer meal solution. Works for me. p.s. My husband likes my muesli better, but he may be biased.
