What I Ate

Hello's time to get back. 

Back to seeing friends.
Back to tracking my food.
Back to doing what's right for my body.
Back to reading.
Back to writing.
Back to my blog.

I'm going to try a What I Ate at least once a week...I learned about it from several blogs I read, but have never joined in.

There's always a beginning.  His mercies are new each day...Today I'm claiming them.

In random food from Sunday

Apples with cinnamon and string cheese - afternoon snack on the porch

Dried edamame - snack...I was still hungry.

Dinner - salad with chicken, tomatoes, and covered with a guacamole salsa from Trader Joe's (and chips).

My favorite evening snack...yogurt and PB2...yum!

My favorite breakfast ever...bagel thin with PB2, fruit (strawberries), and protein smoothie pancakes - WW Greek yogurt whipped with egg whites...yum!  Every Sunday and Saturday, I get to eat these because I have more time to cook.

Lunch - Chinese cabbage salad with Asian dressing from the Pioneer Woman and a roll and veggies

There you have it...

My thoughts

I was given the Dessange products free to try, but my opinions are strictly mine!

I was given shampoo, conditioner, and replenishing oil. Here is the description from the site for their shampoo.

DESSANGE Paris introduces Oleo Miracle Collection, a hair care line infused with nutrients from nature's most precious oils. Bolstering delicious notes of orange, gardenia petals and sandalwoor, the reparative collection works to help transofmr hair suffering from thermal, chemical, and environmental damage for a  visibly softer, healthier look. Offering intense nourishment, the formulas are infused with three kay natural oils: Argan Oil, Camelia Oil, and Pracaxi Oil, leaving hair smooth, bounce and manageable. 

The Oleo Miracle Replenishing Shampoo is DESSANGE's first shampoo infused with micro-drops of precious oilds, the lightweight formula offers supreme nourishment to hair without weighing it down.

I love the smell of the products and the oil was really nice with helping defrizz my hair before I flat iron it.

However, I don't use conditioner every day and only one drop of oil was enough for my hair.  I felt that after using the products many days in a row began to weigh down my hair and cause it to feel greasier.  Not sure if that was my imagination or not.

I probably wouldn't use these products in the future every day, but the replenishing oil is something I would look into.  Especially for the lovely winter dry hair.
