This is what happens when I don’t exercise so much…

 Instead of a workout outside or at home,

I decided to fill up this post with a poem.

(Sometimes when I’m stressed out, I just want to go.

But writing’s a healthier option, I know.)

But what should I write to get in a good mood?

Of course, we all know, that it comes back to food.

So lets get creative and take a quick look,

at some of the recipes, I’d like to cook (if I cooked, of course).

I eat avocados in salads, on wheat.


But topping off oat bran?

A new breakfast treat!

While chickpeas are stapes in my veggie/rice dishes,

these fun concoctions just look most delicious!

This summer I OD’d on corn in the raw,

with salads that had every veggie I saw.

salad11 But while my own salads always looked the same,

these lovely ladies sure stepped up their game!

Then there’s those who have thought me  quite insane,

when they find out what’s spent on my Greek yogurt (plain).

yogurt I don’t get creative with this cultured treat,

but how good does this look and isn’t this neat?

And lately I’m going through quite the egg phase,

but fix them in all the traditional ways.

But this is creative and here is one more,

both dishes I hope to cook up and explore.

I never knew oats could be made is such ways,

yet these delicious creations could go on for days!

So could my love for all things almond butter,

(I have to admit that these made my heart flutter.)

And I like may taters, and I like them sweet.

sweet But how ‘bout scooped out and then filled for this treat?

All these new recipes swirl in my head,

and beg to be swallowed…

yep, that’s what she said!
