Food Photos and V Day

I have to apologize for today’s food photos. I wasn’t very patient with the camera and my food wasn’t very nice to look at. But, I am documenting all the same :)

After a casual stroll on the treadmill I had an afternoon snack of a Vita Muffin (part of my hunker down stash).

And some cereal. This could have been more balanced, I realize.

And dinner was roasted brussel, onions and brown rice with a little salt and butter. See, not so nice to look at, but very nice to eat :)

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is this Sunday. My mom’s birthday is actually Feb. 14th, so I think of her more than anything on this day. Usually the BF (now husband) celebrate another day.

But the day has an even bigger, very important message related to it – V Day. VDay is a global movement to end violence against women and girls. Events are planned throughout the world. Check it out here.

I saw the Vagina Monologues with my mom a few years back and thought it was cool. But, more than that I love that a group is making efforts to educate people about and stop violence against women – it is tragic how common rape and female circumcision are in our world.

I feel helpless to make any kind of difference, but becoming educated and spreading the world that this is unacceptable is something, right? I want to do more though…

    Thanks for bringing up VDay! This is such an important issue! Spreading the word on your blogs is a great way to start!

    I love Vita Tops! They’re not sold in stores here :(

    Thanks for bringing up VDay! It is such an important topic and it really doesn’t get the talk it should. I think just mentioning it on your blog is a great way to get the word out there.

    First, I just want to say I love your blog!

    Also, I’ve never really tried brussel sprouts but I bought some on Sunday. Yours look so good, you inspired me to try them! This may be a stupid question but- How exactly do you cook them?
