The last two days have been "snow days" here in Omaha. I work at a school who has an all day center including before and after school care. We are open almost every holiday and open on snow days. I love those little boogers though.

Thanks Ali for the recommendation on the ginger and cinnamon :)
I wanted to show you guys this because this is what I have to work with in Omaha for healthy eats. We went out to eat one morning for breakfast. My husband got the breakfast buffet. I looked the menu over and this was about it if I didn't want anything fried. So I got the toast & oatmeal combo with coffee. It was good, but not really what I wanted.
Lunch today I stopped at Wholefoods after work and got some mango & blueberries pre sliced.
From the hot food bar, I got the potato & pea samosas, pineapple rice and some type of bean polenta.
Dinner a couple nights ago I made some fresh vegetable soup. I put way too much beans.
Dinner last night was red quinoa with black beans, avocados & tomatoes. For the quinoa, I cook it in my rice cooker just like how you would cook rice. After it is cooked, I add coconut oil & lots of basil!
Next, I soaked the organic dried black beans in water overnight. In the morning, I poured fresh water inside and threw it in the slow cooker. I let it cook all day on low.
Lastly, I chopped up an avocado, a tomato and half an onion. Mix all that together. Then add a few cloves of chopped garlic, fresh organic lemon juice, Himalayan salt and pepper. Mix that together with the avocado mixture.
Layer your quinoa, black beans and avocado mixture and top with nutritional yeast.
Snack was a pear
My wonderful friend in Hawaii sent me some Hawaiian tea for Christmas. I really like it!

Question: What is a food, beverage you will never ever give up?
Mine used to be cheese, but look at me now all grown up and vegan.
