Detox/Reset Menu Day 4

We're waiting for snow around here.  It's been a pretty wimpy winter thus far and the dogs are keen for some snow.  Emily believes each snowflake as the potential to be a snowball and in her world all balls are a good thing.  I've discovered I have 4 Turkey carcasses in the freezer so I think a pot of turkey soup is in order.  I'm going to put the bones on to boil today but first let's talk about today's detox/reset menu.

Cereal (I picked up a new bag of cereal yesterday at CostCo and was keen to try it out this morning - Wild Roots Triple Berry Morning Bliss - it was yummy!)
