Well I guess you all really want some of this Amazing Meal!!!! Keep those entries coming—to be fair, since you all have such great reasons why you deserve it, I’m going to pick a totally random winner this evening using Random Number Integer on the web. I’ve always found that to be the fairest way to go about these things!
Speaking of Amazing Grass, my dad stopped by this morning and I made him his first ever Green Monster!!!
He was heading back from the gym and said this was the perfect thing! After his first sip he said, “ well looks can sure be deceiving!! ” I made his with the original Amazing Meal, a frozen banana, peanut butter, wheatgrass, almond milk and spinach. The classic just can’t be beat.
Other than that, its been a pretty high stress morning over here. I actually think my stress levels have gone UP since I’ve quit my job and started blogging and writing full time! How can that be?! Aint real life fun? Don’t get me wrong, I am a million bajillion times happier now that I am following my passion and doing this full time but working from home can sometimes be a struggle with things don’t go according to plan. You have to be able to juggle numerous different projects at the same time–I’ve definitely learned to multi-task!
I waited for two hours for the A/C guys to get here and ended up missing my lunch date with the food editor of Creative Loafing. I wasn’t thrilled about that AT ALL, but after some deep yoga breathes and Level 2 of The 30 Day Shred, I felt much better. Today I used pasta sauce jars to shred with! They are each about 2 lbs so it was perfect!
Lunch was impromptu since I thought I was going out. Yet another large salad!! I’ve been such a manatee lately, eating all these greens!
serving of Mary’s Gone Crackers
1/2 cup pinto beans
2 scoops hummus
a serving of raw goat cheese, grated ( Gina turned me on to this—it “makes” the salad!)
After I took the picture I of course slathered the salad with Texas Pete. Obviously.
And then had a frozen SCM cookie for dessert! I NEEDED this today!
I am buried in work this afternoon and then have a Team in Training nutrition class I have to be at from 5:30-7:30.
