i'm a grateful early bird

Natural, Gluten and Dairy Free, French Toast Sticks for Clinic Days

Alive Shakes for OR Days
Mornings are my favorite part of the day. I wake up, roll over, and nuzzle Teddy. Then I go to my Keurig and brew a delicious Kona blend coffee. I'm such a sucker for the small stuff. One little thing, for instance: When I moved, I threw away any mug that I dreaded grabbing. Everybody has a few "favorite mugs." My days are always so much better when I start it with a "favorite mug," and ever since this move, I start EVERY day with a favorite mug. Then, I let Teddy out. I'm so proud of how well he's adjusted to apartment-living. He has not had any accidents!!! If it's a surgery day, I make an "Alive" shake because it's quick and easy, and keeps me full for a long surgery. These days I wake up around 5:30 and am looking for something convenient but still nutritious. If it's a clinic day, I get to go in to the office a little later, and enjoy my gluten-free, dairy-free Cinnamon French Toast sticks. I drizzle sugar free syrup and crunched up walnuts to make it a delicious and savory treat. Either way, I feel like I start my day with a nutritious and satisfying breakfast. I also love how cool the mornings feel, even if "cool" is 85 degrees in this Texas heat! After reading some health food books, I realize coffee is not good for me, and I abstained for about a week. I've decided this is my drug of choice, and I'm just not ready to give it up.
