Just for the record, I have held off on doing a sequel to the original What Other People Ate that I posted in May. The main reason being that I was worried everyone would think I was being lazy and using other people’s gorgeous photography. Maybe I am being lazy. But I truly do just like sharing the love and linking to the often downright inspiring recipes of some of my fellow bloggers.
Today just feels like the right time for a second edition. As I shared in my post this past Friday, my life has been a little less than perfect lately with my never-ending stomach problems (I’m finding out the results hopefully tomorrow… although my mom and I have agreed that they will most likely come back normal). In addition my grandma’s recent surgery which you all so sweetly prayed for on Friday, as well as another tragedy this past weekend when my Great Uncle died.
I didn’t know him very well. Actually, to be honest, because he didn’t live extremely close, I don’t actually ever remember meeting him (although I’m sure I did when I was much younger). Still, a loss is a loss and I have been hearing from my mom all of the wonderful things that he did in life. He held a host of interesting jobs including being a well-recognized costume make-up artist and also an expert gardener who crossbred flowers to make up his own original species. I have thought of him more than once over the past few days and how admirable he was for following his passions and living life to the fullest.
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ATE (and what I
not so secretly
wish I could be eating right now too) PART TWO:
Paleo Cookie Crisp Cereal from Real Sustenance
Homemade Nut Cheese from The Fitnessista
Vegan Carrot “Hot Dogs” from Clean Eating Veggie Girl
Basic Acai Bowl Blueprint from Bittersweet Blog
Grilled Pesto Chicken and Tomato Kebabs from Skinny Taste
Almond Butter Banana Cookies from Civilized Caveman Cooking
My last What Other People Ate post ended with me commenting that my eyes were drifting closed… Sadly not much has changed because before adding in the images tonight I took a short and unplanned 15 minute cat nap.
Hope you all have a great and productive Wednesday!
