Shin Splints

Got up early for our regular morning walk; we didn’t jog today as I’ve noticed my shin splints are back! I haven’t experienced shin splints since 18 yrs old trying out for the track team!  Never happened! Too painful shin splints! But with age I know if I preserver my legs will get stronger and it will be no big deal. Like body builders who constantly tear muscle to build bigger ones. Great info on certain vegan body builders in “The Kind Life” by Alicia Silverstone who are huge and beautifully muscular. It just proves fill your body up with plant based foods and you can be just as big as Arnold Swarchenegger.
Got home, made Trevor salad with yummy craisins, toms & cucs and romaine lettuce for lunch and peeled 4 kiwi’s as well. Trevor normally eats breakfast at work its usually a bagel. Need to introduce more vegan breakfast options to us all! We really need to buy a multitude of grains, brown rice etc. to add to each meal and start our day off really right!
I am feeling like a bowl of oatmeal with my favorite craisins with a small tsp. of Agave. Truly yummy!! Kids are still tracked out from school so our routine right now is swim practice for 2 hours and then head home for lunch.   Our snacks consisted of homemade popcorn and several Kiwis sliced up and beyond delicious.
Lunch; salad with craisins, romaine, toms and cucs and Italian seasoning dressing by Good Seasons. We’re still eating left overs etc. As the saying goes “waste not, want not!”
Dinner; was great and beyond yummy! The kids ate their “what’s left in pantry, fridge and/or freezer” Unfortunately!! I am really looking forward to a fully VEGAN STOCKED fridge, pantry and freezer!! All in good time.
Trevor wanted a form of Mexican. Friday night is usually something Mexican; Tacos, Chili, Fajitas. For the past 2 or 3 years we have been substituting beef or mince as the “English” call it with Turkey mince.  Now no more turkey or nothing animal in our meals! So Trevor made homemade Burritos!
