yesterday and today
let's see if I can remember yesterday! OH YES! Yesterday I wanted chocolate! I haven't wanted chocolate for over 2 weeks and woke up with a strong desire. So I made a big green smoothie for me and the kiddos and added some chocolate to it. 3 bananas 1.5 cups frozen peaches with skins 4 oz sunflower sprouts VM green AFA cashews (about 1/2 cup) cacao powder It was thick and creamy and smooth and very very filling. JUST what the doctor ordered. I drank 16 oz then did a bunch of homework, drank another 16 oz, rode the stationary bike for 10 miles, talked with an old good friend, made dinner. (The kids each had 16 oz of this, too.) dinner was simple: a plate of mesclun mix with steamed red bell pepper, onion, zuke and mushrooms. I added a dollop of parsley pesto that I love so much. afterwards I had some bites of raw cheezecake. I took a nice hot epsom salt bath which was great to soak into for a while. It was nice to read a magazine in bubbly, hot water. I had a very difficult time falling asleep and staying asleep. Got up at 8 am and got ready for the day. Today I made an even bigger green smoothie for the day. Last week I was out all day and didn't have enough juice (was hungry for 3+ hours) so this time I brought extra smoothie with me: 3 bananas 1.5 cups peaches with skins 1 bunch kale VM green rice protein powder I had about 20 oz in the morning and then went off for the day. I brought a salad with me and about 30 more oz of smoothie with me. The salad was almost exactly what I had last night except that instead of the parsley pesto, I had a dollop of cheddary cheeze. I also added a nori sheet and some dulse flakes. It was not huge but delicious. I had the rest of my smoothie around 3 pm. Got home and there was dinner made, which is always nice. it was vegan JUNK food: vegan spare rib cutlets served over brown rice and then put over a huge bed of mesclun mix. what is interesting is that I haven't wanted 2nds of anything except for this. junk food is junk food! :-) I rode the bike for 9.5 miles and am hoping to get to bed and stay asleep for 8-9 hours tonight!
