WASHINGTON (AP) — With just hours to spare, Congress stepped Monday to finalize legislation to prevent doctors who treat Medicare patients from being hit with a 24 percent cut in their payments from the government.

"It’s rest day!!!" And this week? I couldn’t WAIT for my #restday to come….LOL! I am officially sore, tired, & pushed beyond limits…..& I’m looking forward to doing it all over again this week! :-)

Tasty little afternoon snack! #Organic #blueberries, #strawberries , #granola with small pieces or #darkchocolate tossed in. YUMMY! Boy, have I made progress….my former idea of little afternoon snack used to be #oreo #cookies! LOL!

I think I’ve got a winner here with this raw #vegan #protein powder by Sun Warrior!!! It’s non-GMO, organic, gluten free, soy free, dairy free, free of artificial flavors & preservatives, & it’s hypoallergenic. It contains ALL of the essential amino acids (see the amino acid profile bottom left of this pic) which makes it a complete protein. It is sweetened with my all time favorite natural sweetener Stevia & the chocolate flavor is pretty good! I mixed a packet in my shaker cup with about 16 ounces of unsweetened vanilla flavored almond milk & it mixed up quite well, very smooth. Other raw vegan protein powders that I’ve tried required blending for smoothness. Again, this is a definite winner & I’ll probably use it as a post-workout shake & in my #Sunday breakfast waffle batter mixture! :-)

Thank you @lilressler for giving me this today to try out! :-)

I had to take a moment & share this #almondbutter with you guys! This is HANDS DOWN, the BEST almond butter that I have ever tasted. The brand is called Woodstock, it’s truly all-natural, non-GMO, rich, creamy, and if you look at the ingredient list, ONE INGREDIENT: ALMONDS!
The quality can not be compared to other brands that I’ve tried. I found it at a local Giant Food supermarket & it’s got a nice price tag ($9.99 a jar) but it’s so good!!!! Enjoying some right now, straight off of the spoon! LOL! Have a GREAT afternoon #igfam!
