Hiiiiii How are you? Hope your day is going fabulously.
It’s POURING here! And I love it Perfect weather for watching the Emmy’s pre-show and online shopping
This morning, the Pilot wanted French toast on Pancake Sunday, so I made some for his face:
Along with organic bacon- he was a happy kid
We ran errands, kept organizing and doing pre-packing blahs, I hit up the gym for cardio, then we took a break for snacktime.
Mine was a little on the random side…
(with lucuma and mesquite)
Greens topped with sauerkraut and Garlic Gold
(I wanted SALTY!)
and a Butterfingers Smoothie.
The star of the show was this:
The ingredients in this extract are kinda stanky (Red 40, anyone?) but it was the only thing I could find for a toffee or butterscotch extract- Stevia makes toffee-flavored drops, which would be much better but a little of the artificial stuff ain’t no thang.
The Butterfinger breakdown:
-1 frozen banana
-1 C almond milk
-1 scoop chocolate protein powder of choice (I used the Vega To-go sample from the HLS)
-1 heaping T nut butter of choice (I used almond butter, my nut butter lovah)
-1/2-1 t toffee or butterscotch extract
-1/2 t vanilla extract
-1 T mesquite (optional)
-1 T lucuma (optional) *Philip also adds maca to his
-Stevia to taste
-pinch sea salt
-a few ice cubes
Blend in the Vita-mixalicious and devour
We’re taking it easy right now and are going to make rice and build-your-own burritos for dinner, then watch the Emmy’s.
Enjoy the rest of your day!!!
See ya in the morning <3
