For some reason, this week is going by fast! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday, but I’m happy about it. Nick and I are probably going to a football game this weekend – we’re psyched. It should be a good one, as long as it doesn’t rain!
Too many options for breakfast means it takes me a long time to decide.
I still have a few servings of my carrot cake oatmeal in the fridge, so I knew I needed to eat some today.
I love this with the pineapple – it’s so sweet from the fruit and the carrots.
I heated up a serving with a little added water, then added my toppings:
- chopped pecans
- TJs pumpkin butter
Happy Fall :)
To start off Thursday in a good way, I wanted to bring your attention to an awesome project Natalie is starting.
What is Project Feed Me?
Project Feed is a nine week program designed to help feed thousands of hungry Families.
-Donate as many items of food as possible to the Local Food Banks
-Rally as many people as possible to participate in Project Feed Me
-Give back and Feed the hungry
How do I participate?
Four Easy Steps:
1. Register and become a member of Project Feed Me
2. Commit to buying two of the "recommended food items" per week for the entire nine week project
3. Commit to getting at least 3 other people to become members of Project Feed Me
4. At the end of nine weeks, look up your local food bank (US here) (Canada here)and donate your items
*The recommended food items are a list of items that have been predetermined by Food Banks across the country. The recommended food items will be posted at nono2yoyo.com every Monday Starting Monday October 12. It will be your responsibility to check back each week to find out what the weekly item is and ensure you are buying the foods that are recommended and needed by the food banks.
For more information, please see this post on Natalie’s blog and sign up if you can help!
Food banks in this country are struggling and they need all the help they can get. Buying just 2 things a week for these 9 weeks will be such a relief and it’s such an easy thing to do.
No matter how much you make, what car you have, what house you live in, or what clothes you wear…we are so blessed in this country, overall. We always have more to give.
The small things really do add up.
Do you volunteer / give to charities or have you in the past?
