I LOVE Saturdays. Especially Saturday mornings. I am a morning person, and my family is not. This means I get the whole house to myself for at least two hours before anyone gets up. Reading the paper on line, having two big cups of coffee, connecting with my friends and family in the US through Facebook…. Things I actually have time for and do not need to rush when its Saturday.
Breakfast is a very important part of every day, and Saturday is no different. Coconut flour pancakes or fresh bread, almond or peanut butter, fruit and yogurt.
Two other major events on Saturday : my workout and the farmer’s market. Depending on the weather I will either run or go to the gym. Or both if I am feeling motivated. The Paris firemen often run where I do on Saturdays, and running behind them is extra motivation !
The farmer’s market is in my town on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We stock up on fruits, vegetables, meat and fish.
Having lots of fruits and veggies in the house helps me make healthy choices all week. The farmer’s market is a major part of French culture, and I am glad that I will be able to take advantage of this for a long time.
I absolutely love my Saturday mornings. Taking time for myself, exercise and the farmer’s market… makes Saturdays great.
What is your Saturday morning ritual like ? Do you have a farmer’s market where you live ?
