Happy Halloween--NaNo coming up! EEEK!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
This post is going to be quick--I'm alive, I'm alive. And I'm doing NaNoWriMo! Why? Because this year has been crazy and my new book is aching to burst forth ala Alien.

On one of the NaNo threads, someone asked me about healthy edibles during long hours of engorging pages with words. My favorites: plain yogurt with cinnamon, yum, and peanut butter (only a tablespoon or two, max!) with cinnamon--the cinnamon lowers blood pressure (easier to think) and the peanut butter and yogurt are packed with healthy stuff to keep you healthy--add half an apple and you've got great fiber as well to keep you going. Add a couple of cups of green tea with a bit of lemon and you'll live forever--or at least be undead enough to finish NaNo!

This is fantastic advice and very appreciated by those of us who are inclined to shove our hands into the bag of Cheetos while trying to reach those mandatory 1667 words! Thanks for saving me many unwanted pounds!!

Thanks, Conda, for the reminders and excellent advice. Now let's write (almost time here!). cyn

Hey Julie--Cheetos aren't too bad, if plain! Welcome to my blog. 1667?! I gotta get back to my novel!!

Conda V. Douglas said...

Cynthia--it's fun having you play too.

Enid--blueberries are great for the brain too!

Kathy McIntosh said...

Great ideas...now I'm off to snack (I like blueberries, too, like Enid) and start writing!
I'm doing NaNo, too! Eek!
Too many exclamation points!

I like strawberry yogurt with fruit. I love peanut butter, which is why I try to avoid it.

Kathy,

Blueberries are a power food, eat 'em up!

Conda V. Douglas said...

Helen,

I have the same problem which is why I get the smallest amount of peanut butter I can...

Good for you for eating so healthy. Now get that book written :)

Conda V. Douglas said...

Carol--thanks for the prompt!

Good luck on NaNoWriMo! Hope it goes smoothly for you. Seems like everyone is doing it this year.

I didn't know that about cinnamon. I'll remember. I am very much into healthy eating for me and my daughter.

I'm re-signing as a follower because a glitch in blogger forced me to export my former blog and do a new one, which looks almost the same as the first one. Only one additional little word in the new title. But now I need to sign in again on the blogs that I want to keep following since blogger doesn't save our followers. Bummer!! But I did wisely copy the addresses of all my followers, and now I can re-sign with the ones that really ARE followers, and ones I want to keep following! So, mixed blessings...Here's the link to my new blog. Ann
