Happy Labor Day!

First of all, I'd like to thank those who are working today so that we can enjoy our family time.  This would include (but not limited to) military, medical professionals, emergency services, utility workers, and those working in retail.

Like most of the country, hubby and I have the day off from work.  We've enjoyed some tv watching time with the kids. After lunch, a nap was in order.   For dinner we had homemade tacos instead of the traditional bbq.

Holidays can be tricky when there's food involved. My hubby is an amazing cook and is great at making low carb versions of my favorite meals.  He seasons the meat himself instead of prepackaged seasoning. Hubby and I use low-carbs tortillas and lots of veggies. The kids get regular carb tortillas since they are still growing.

It's always easier to manage food temptations when we eat at home on holidays. I spent two days this weekend at a local festival. Surprisingly, I skipped the shoe string onion rings and funnel cake. Hubby packed me some healthy snacks which made it easier to avoid temptation.

However, I did get a scoop if chocolate ice cream, because we all know that diabetics love ice cream.
