It's a Blogosphere Mind Meld!

There's something weird in the blogosphere.

Let me explain. For lunch on Tuesday, I prepared some spaghetti squash using my favorite fixings (salsa and avocado -- simple but incredible!).

Upon checking my feed reader later that day, I saw that Katie had just posted about her own spaghetti squash lunch. Hmm. Interesting, but not cause for alarm . . . yet.

Yesterday was the day of salsa. Mango-peach salsa from Costco, to be exact, which also happens to be my favorite kind of salsa. For breakfast I had scrambled salsa eggs with delicious homemade whole wheat bread topped with whipped cream cheese . . .

. . . a quick one-minute prep dip of salsa, yogurt, and nutritional yeast (by the way, this was the first time that my taste buds danced in delight due to the nutritional yeast -- I've find my nooch niche!) . . . with veggies and baked blue corn tortilla chips . . .

. . . and finished up the day with a burrito laden with black beans and (you guessed it) salsa.

Guess who else had a salsa day (with, I must say, some very delicious-looking salsas)? Heather. This is starting to get a little creepy, don't you think? It's a blogosphere mind meld!

It didn't end there. Just a few minutes ago, having discovered an intriguing recipe for oat yogurt, otherwise known as fermented oats, earlier in the week, I contemplated making a batch of my own. I'm going through some pretty horrid digestive stuff, and I'm trying to get as many foods with probiotics, prebiotics, and other helpful stuff (i.e., not steroids or antibiotics, if it can be helped) into my body as possible. Oat yogurt sounded like a good thing to try, and a fun food to experiment with. Apparently, it sounded like a good Thursday dish to another blogger, too -- Heather again!

Man. Are there hidden cameras in my house? Or worse, in my nose?!? (Fun fact -- when I was a kid my parents told me that when they looked up my nose they could watch T.V. I believed them.)

The synchronicity was a little too much for this skeptic of a blogger, so today I decided there would be no sharing of foods from me. (Do you like how I broke my rule at the same time as declaring it? I've got skills.) Instead, I focused my energies into writing up an review of Love Street Living Foods, a gem of a organic/raw/delicious food company.

Here's another fun fact -- Love Street is offering a 25% off discount AND one free sample with every order. Just use the coupon code "UltraHealth" and indicate which free sample you'd like in the notes section of the order form. I recommend the raw Artisana coconut butter. You will not be disappointed. Or creeped out, like me.

    Hehe - I'm stalking you. ;)Love that Costco salsa, especially when you get a HUGE chunk of mango. I stopped buying it b/c I could finish off a container in about 2 days with my spoon. Oops. Hope the oatgurt turns out okay. Good stuff if you get it right!
