Hey everyone! Happy humpday!!! My favorite day of the week, which is usually Indian Food day, but alas, we’re not having Indian tonight. I had to book some extra training appointments today and tonight since we’ll be out of town this weekend, so I’ll be working at the gym instead of feasting on Baigan Bhartha—quite worth it, I’m SO EXCITED for our trip! I was getting homesick like you read about.
This morning, I had an unusually delicious sludge:
Hemp milk, frozen nanner, 1 tbs almond butter, raw cocoa powder (from One Lucky Duck), sea salt, Stevia, vanilla, cinnamon and that Vega stuff I really like. I was worried how my favorite almond butter, chocolate, banana combo would work with the smoothie infusion since the ingredients are pretty unique (yellow pea protein, organic hemp protein, organic sprouted flax seeds, organic brown rice protein, organic green food blend -spirulina, organic wheat grass, organic alfalfa grass, organic barley grass, organic spinach, organic sprouted broccoli, organic kale, organic kelp, organic dulse-, inulin (from chicory root), natural flavors, xanthan gum) but it was AMAZING! That’s what I like about the Vega… it’s pretty flavorless, so you can do pretty much whatever you want with it. Just don’t mix it with peaches 😉
I went to Wizzle –instead of Target because that place has a knack for robbing me- to get a couple of last-minute things for our trip. I also picked up this book:
I’ve seen this book floating around the blog world and have been way interested in reading it. Have you read “In Defense of Food”? Will I love it?
For lunch, I made a blended salad using a version of Gena’s creamy zucchini soup.
It had a boatload of spinach, 1 cup water, 1/2 avocado, dill weed, sea salt, pepper, a little drizzle of flax oil, 1 clove of garlic, a heaping tablespoon of chickpea miso and chopped zucchini. A-freaking-mazing.
Well I’m off to work, take these babies to PetSmart, pick up contact lenses (because I know one will rip/disappear while we’re on vacay), making spin and Zumba cds, then off to teach and train.
I’ll see ya tonight. Please have some Indian food for me!
