Healthy

This month's Real Simple includes a list of the 30 healthiest foods (think mushrooms, skim milk, almonds and edamame). The feature has me looking forward to many delicious and nutritious (and simple!) snacks and side dishes in our future. I'm particularly excited by the prospect of:
  • Kiwi sliced thinly and drizzled with honey and topped with toasted coconut;
  • Broccoli tossed with olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper, roasted until tender, and sprinkled with grated Parmesan before serving;
  • Avocados halved, drizzled with soy sauce and fresh lime juice, and sprinkled with sesame seeds;
  • Black beans tossed with olive oil, ground cumin and salt, and roasted until crispy; and
  • Sweet potatoes steamed with cut up apples, and then pureed with maple syrup and crushed red pepper.
Do you have any delicious go-to healthy snacks and sides? I'm so curious.

Valentine

This week my Valentine has been on a business trip to Ottawa. After spending the past few evenings with my mom enjoying Chinese food and dancing at ballet class, I am quite ready for my love to return. I miss you, Valentine. Image via Anna Bond.

Cabaret

On a super gloomy early morning, I'm admiring the fun selection of affordable posters at Poster Cabaret. No doubt there's something available you'll fancy.

Sarah 101

Seriously, this is the best show on tv right now. I am obsessed with decorating with fabrics after watching just a few episodes. Wouldn't these tea towels be a great jumping off point for a kids room? Image via Rambling Renovators.

Stickers

These Valentine's Day stickers are the perfect way to remind your loved one that you care for them while munching on a delicious packed lunch. I'd love to slip one in Greg's lunch on Valentine's Day or a grey Tuesday. Via Twig and Thistle.

Clips

I haven't worn shoe clips since grade school, but these are perfect for the surprise date Greg has planned for me this coming Valentine's Day weekend. I'm tres excited!

Sigh

It's just one of those days during one of those weeks. I'm suffering from a serious case of mid-winter burn out/blahs. Image via Smallest Things.
