oooo - wonderful idea!!

Winding down to final days of this challenge I've had a grand finale of sorts. Friend of mine is from the Philippines and shops at a Vietnamese store. She took me there and I got all sorts of goodies I've had a difficult time finding. To go along with this challenge I went ahead and bought two different leafy green veggies. She said they were good and look to be like some sort of bok choy but not like I get in the 'regular' store! Going to steam them.

They really should be called parsimon pancakes. Made much like banana pancakes, but use sliced up parsimons. Add walnuts or pecans for some extra flavor, fiber and protein.

I love Korean melons! I picked up parsimons and am making patties with them. Really creamy and yummy.

Ok - report on the Korean melon - it's very mild, inside looks like a cucumber. It has a faint melon taste to it and is very crunchy. Quite refreshing - I'd have it again.

We don't have a farmer's market, unfortunately. We do have local produce featured in our two grocery stores though - it is interesting to see the difference in size between the local strawberries (small and very sweet) and the imported CA ones (large and rather tasteless). I try to buy local when I can.

I love fruits and veggies and usually eat at least 8 servings a day.

I'd love to know how that Korean melon tastes Dee!

Went to our local farmers market, and got a whole bunch of fresh green beans, strawberries, bananas, apples, and oranges. Going to make a low calorie green bean salad for dinner this evening.

I definitely need to check out the Farmers Market, I always mean to go, but I need to get my butt in gear.

I don't win races, but I always cross the finish line. I'm not fast, but I try my best to become faster. I don't have sports endorsements or earn a paycheck, but that doesn't stop me from running. My pace does not define me. Just because "professional" does not precede "athlete" in describing me doesn't make my running any less valuable. I am an everyday athlete; leading a normal life, but with big goals and dreams.

I'll be in FL for two weeks and I know I'll enjoy all the yummy tropical fruits of the season. Here in Germany, I've already been eating pounds of strawberries and honeydew for breakfast! Will try to get my Spark clicker up to the max this month.

Blessings today,
Michelle
