It’s June! This is one of my favorite months. Bobby and my dad have June birthdays. It’s the true start of summer. Farmers’ markets start to open in NYC (the one near my apartment is coming on June 23rd). What else… Blueberry season starts. The longest day of the year happens in June. Lots of things!
May was a good month too. I participated in the Blog Every Day in May challenge, which helped me blog more than I otherwise would have (even though I didn’t actually Blog Every Day). I was very busy at work. I got better at handstands. I hung out with friends. I rediscovered my love of wine. Actually, that started in April. My brother graduated from college.

A few weeks ago I received a copy of Keri Glassman’s new book, The New You and Improved Diet: 8 Rules to Lose Weight and Change Your Life Forever (it’s on the the Kindle too).
I was very excited for this book because Keri’s 3 taglines for this book are:

- Catch some zzz’s!
- And have more sex (you heard me!)
Sounds like a plan anyone in their right mind would want to follow and enjoy following – nothing like the typical restrictive diet.
Keri catapults you right into her plan. She intros a quickstart “Eight Foods Cleanse” early on – page 27 to be exact. I figured if I am going to give this book a proper review (to come…) I should at least try out the cleanse. To be honest, I haven’t ever really followed a proper “diet” plan. I generally just try to eat less/move more. I’m really interested to see if I feel any different at the end of this “cleanse”. In the past I’ve tried doing the “raw/juicing” thing, “macrobiotic“, etc… – but I always end up cheating, ha.

Time for some Friday Fun Foods!
Here is a vegetarian breakfast:
- pita + tomato + avocado + cheese (grilled)
A vegetarian lunch:
- pita French toast (whole eggs + almond milk + cinnamon), honey, cream cheese
- spinach sauteed in butter + cream cheese
And a pescatarian shrimpalicious dinner:
- 2 sweet potatoes cut into fries with coconut oil and ketchup
- shrimp and spinach cooked in butter and peanut dressing
Sometimes I think my blog should be called “Better With Butter”. Do you have funny blog-name ideas? (For your blog or for mine.)
I am off for some R&R. And Burn Notice.
Happy Friday! (I have a bunch of great Saturday Links for tomorrow, so come back in a day.)
