Since we moved out here dad's job has proven to be physically demanding at times, especially for one inching his way to 60. This has made mom's job as nutrition coach/mom/doctor/personal trainer/worried wife a little easier. For years she struggled to get him to shed some of his, umm, layers, but lately things have turned in the opposite direction. Now she finds herself trying to figure out a way to add things to his daily intake that are good for him and will satisfy his late-morning hungries yet won't make him pack the pounds back on. Mom's even got a calendar up next to dad's coffee maker so he knows what he can eat each day, and besides seasoned, cooked kale, canned salmon and veggie sausage patties one of his favorite breakfast additions is sardines. Dad says he could eat sardines all day long, no matter what time.
|Who gets a pre-breakfast breakfast? What I wouldn't give to get treats like this!|
It's a good thing I'm kinda in the shadows so you can't see the daggers I'm giving the big meanie.
