No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

Greek Yogurt or Greek Yogurt

In the last two weeks of going to the food banks I have received two different kinds of Greek Yogurt. Right off I won't say I am a fan of Greek yogurt; however, last week I received a 24 ounce container of The Greek Gods Poseidon Greek Yogurt and this week was two six ounce containers of Chobani Greek Yogurt, one blueberry and one peach.

Between the two, The Greek Gods Greek Yogurt is thicker than normal yogurt (normal?) but the Chobani Greek Yogurt is twice as thick (creamy) than The Greek Gods Greek Yogurt. I won't say I like one over the other but the Chobani seems more smooth that The Greek. The Chobani is thicker than but just as smooth as the regular yogurt such as Yoplait.

I find this all interesting since I think it was Bex at Thoughts From Crow Cottage had raved about Greek yogurt. So I am glad I have a chance to try and to compare. I do like the plain yogurt because I can mix different fruits, nuts and even a bit of grape jelly in it. The flavored yogurts are what you get. The most I can do is add some granola to them.

Thanks Bex for bringing something new into my life.

It was overcast this morning when I awoke at 6 a.m. I'm glad I wore my hoodie when I walked over to the community center to put my rolling cart in line as a place holder. As it looks now, I am number seven. I like being in the top 10.

The staff was running late in packing the individual boxes of provisions this morning. Normally this would not be a problem for me but Michael had his follow-up visit with the doctor at 11 a.m. and we needed to be on the road by 10:30 a.m. This caused me some angst but things worked out fine.

The only meat product we received was canned pork. Not to my liking but it is zero carbs and high on the protein level. We received a variety of veggies and fruits. I'm happy because we acquired three pint baskets of strawberries. I do see some smoothies in my future.

Good news, Michael got a clean bill of health from his hospital stay. We also were diligent in washing hands and spraying the Lysol so no transmission of the infection he contracted in the hospital and I'm happy about that.

Now it is a matter of eating healthfully and drinking lots of water to stay hydrated.

As for me, I have been diligent in notating all the foods I eat. I have been recording the amount of carbs, proteins and fats. I have been able to stay within the allotment of carbs the dietician deemed appropriate for me. My glucose numbers are coming down, although, my insulin dosage has been raised to 21 units.

Back home, Michael headed for the futon and I to the kitchen. With all that fresh produce, I wanted to prepare it for eating right away. In the past I have left it for later and later didn't come and when it did, the produce had spoiled. Well, I'm not letting it happen this time.

By the time I am done in the kitchen, I head for my chair as I am ready for a time out. Little did I know how long my time out was going to be. I had planned on doing some reading only I fell asleep instead and didn't wake up until Michael was rubbing my foot and it was 4 p.m. I guess I was as pooped as Michael was. There went my idea of getting some things done this afternoon.

I never did get back the umph to do much else for the day. I'm grateful there is a tomorrow.
