Howdy, precious pals!
I spent part of this week...crying. Over things I probably shouldn't be crying about. But so is life. Is that weird? Too much information?
I'm a little emotional. Over-sensitive. Overwhelmed. Welcome to the lovely life that is doing what I do best...a little bit of everything. It doesn't come easy and it doesn't come without confusion, anxiety, and fear. Thank God for my family who knows me better than anyone and can talk me out of any problem, large or small. Like my mom told me, sometimes there are more questions than answers. And that is okay. Here I am today on a new day, writing about food. Because food makes me happy---that I know for sure.
Anywhoozle, I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day with your lovely beau or your even lovelier self!
Breakfast was one of the best smoothies I've made in a looooong time. First I blended half a raw, peeled beet with almond milk since it's harder to blend than the other stuff. It was hot pink and SO gorg! Then I added frozen cherries, frozen Wild Blueberries, frozen cauliflower, frozen peas, frozen spinach, a big spoonful of peanut butter, Chocolate Vega Protein + Greens, avocado, and cinnamon. It was so thick and dreamy. I almost married it.
Lunch was super delish leftovers from a tasting for Trism. I haven't talked much about the new restaurant concept yet but don't you wait, it'll have its moment to shine. This blend had lentils, beet hummus, falafel, pickled turnips and onions, kale salad, cucumbers and tomatoes. Can't go wrong with any of those!
Snacks included a big sliced apple with tons of cinnamon, a few Lemon Coconut No-Bake Bites, and baby carrots with hummus.
I headed home from work and walked into our apartment decorated with all kinds of Valentine's Day goodies, roses and all! The boyf knows how to do it right.
Dinner was a hugh jass Village Salad from Northstar packed with greens, avocado, dates, almonds, tofu, chickpeas, beans, and croutons. I also had some sausage-less bites of pizza, of course. The perfect V-Day treat!
We came home, turned on The Americans, and dove into a couple pints of ice cream.
Almond Dream's Toffee Almond Fudge for the win!
