Happy Friday the 13th!
Have you ever heard of friggatriskaidekaphobia, the fear of Friday the 13th? Well, I think I have it! GAH!!
Ok, I’m not afraid of the number 13, but I irrationally don’t like it, even though I love all other odd numbers, especially the numbers 5 and 19. I know my dislike for 13 makes no sense, but it’s just an unlucky number for me.
Did you happen to see the fun food fact on my Dole calendar today?
At a time when professional athletes are getting booed for steroid use, spinach is in the news for its steroid-like ability to bulk up muscles. Lab tissue culture and animal studies showed that a plant steroid extracted from spinach increased muscle growth by 20%, and also enhanced rats’ front limb strength by 10%.
Neat, right? Apparently, Popeye was onto something!
I switched up a my dinner plans last night to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day. I mean, how could I not?!
On the menu: a grilled cheese sandwich made with cheddar.
And grilled asparagus on the side.
This morning, I woke up really hungry for breakfast, so I whipped up a big batch of “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats. I used hemp milk instead of almond milk and added shredded coconut and peanut butter to the mix. Tasty and filling.

I’d love to try the microdermabrasion kit! I’ve tried microderm at the derm’s office but it’s too expensive to maintain. I’d love to give this a try!

Question of the Day
Are you superstitious or “particular” about certain numbers (or am I just a weirdo)?
P.S. Need a little pick-me-up this morning? Check out this heart-warming video about Caine’s Arcade. Elizabeth shared it on Twitter yesterday, and it put the biggest smile on my face. It’s an adorable story.
