I was a bizzy person today! I wrote another article, which took a big chunk of my morning/afternoon. It was definitely a challenge to write this one because it was all factual and no opinion. I’ll let you know when it’s up :) I did a lot of cleaning and ran a few errands. You know, the usual, but a bit more hectic today.
My cold smoothie + hot oats were combined into something new today.
Hmm…I don’t think you can tell…but this banana was baby-sized. It twas’ adorable, tehee.
Smoothie: 1/2c coconut kefir + 10 strawberries + 6 cherries + baby banana –> blend until creamy + smooth
Oats: 1/3c oats + 1c liquid + 1/2T chia + 1/2t cinnamon + vanilla splash
I cooked the oats and then added the smoothie into the pan and cooked for another 2min. So I guess you could call it Hot Smoothie Oats?? I should have not used as much liquid when cooking the oats, so they could absorb a little of the smoothie liquid. However, this bowl was delicious! I’m not sure if I like this or yesterday’s version better.
I don’t like purple clothing but I do like purple FOOD.
Topped with 2T of Bob’s Red Mill [BRM] apple/blueberry granola and unsweetened coconut. Aaaand obviously a kiss of pnut butter [1T].
After breakfast is when things got a little “go go go.” I had a snack, which I can’t recall…but didn’t want to get up for lunch until I was done writing my article. That was at 2pm. Eeeek..starving! I had an egg-erific lunch with a melty cheese apple.
Then I went for another dip in the pool! Today was more intense because the pool was packed, so I tried to keep moving! I’m tired. Details on that.
After my swim I had to hit up Whole Foods for a few things. I was STARving so I grabbed 2 new LB flavors because I had a good coupon. I tried the “tropical fruit” as SOON as I got in the car. I took a big bite. BLEGH!!! Thee worst LB yet. It was dry + crumbly almost and had an INtense pineapple flavor. I’m sure it’s real pineapple but it tastes fake/overpowering. There was also a weird flavor as you kept chewing. I ate half the bar and don’t know if I can down the rest. Anyone try this flavor yet? Thoughts? The other one I got was lemon. We’ll see.
I know this does not look appetizing but just trust that it was.
- Ezeikal sprouted tortilla
- pasta sauce
- sauteed portobella + peppers + garlic
- tomato paste [with a little water] spread on top
- fresh mozzarella
I am loving finding fun ways to use up tomato paste. It was EXcellent on this!
Romaine + peppers + broccoli + 1/2 avocado + 30sec homemade balsamic dressing
The only way to eat this was to fold it in half like a taco and never look back. It was REALLY tasty. I did however end up with sauce dripping down my hand and into my shirt sleeve. Awesome. I didn’t make a mess while making dinner but I made a HUGE mess while eating dinner. I was FAMISHED from the swim. And speaking of food, I need more of it.
Night bloggies! Maybe you’ll see me tomorrow afternoon? Perhaps!
