All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

WFMW - Eating well
In keeping with a lot of people's New Year's Resolutions to lose weight, get in shape, whatever you choose to call it this year...the theme for Works-for-Me Wednesday this week is eating well.

My tip isn't really a recipe, but just a way that I've found to eat a little bit healthier without feeling too deprived: salads.

I know, boring, boring. But wait! What works for me is to add things to your basic pile of shredded lettuce so you don't feel so much like, well, a rabbit or something.

Some of the toppings I like to add to my salad (obviously not all at the same time, although usually a few together) include taco meat, flaked ham (or turkey or chicken), leftover chicken breast, hardboiled eggs, shredded cheese, nuts, raisins, cut-up apples or dried fruit. Adding some of these to my salad makes me feel like I'm eating something substantial, yet still healthy.

Oh, and skip the creamy dressings - it's frightening how quickly they can transform a healthy salad into a fat-laden feast!
