Thankful Thursday: 3/14/13

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

Today I'm thankful for healthy, colorful food - and the fact that it's readily available to me and I can afford to buy it.  I made an Italian egg bake last night, inspired by the recipe on Fit Foodie Finds.  I adjusted the recipe a bit, adding green and red peppers, and using a potato medley from Trader Joe's instead of sweet and red potatoes. 
It was so delicious and very easy to make.  Healthy, organic food is more expensive than junk food, and I'm thankful for having the option to go for the former.  I'm also grateful for the knowledge that changed my eating habits I had in high school/early college.  I've got my friend Isabelle to thank for that positive change, as well as many books.

  1. This looks amazing. I'm thankful that I have a Trader Joe's near me (growing up in Austin, where Whole Foods is headquartered, means that was our only grocery store option, and tres expensive) and that they have such an awesome selection of fresh and frozen fruits and veggies.
