A luscious green smoothie to start off my day.
To be honest lately i haven’t really been diggin my leafy greens. I couldn’t even stomach all of this delicious smoothie goodness, which is strange. Could this maybe be why im fighting off a cold? (Or is it just a case of bad karma?) I have to admit though that lately I have been eating more naughty treats, including more vegan baked goods and processed soy products. Which has left me feeling not my best. While indulgence is good every once in a while my motto is everything in moderation. Let’s say i have been going a little overboard on the whole moderation part. ;)
Maybe me getting this cold is my bodies way of telling me, “hey you what are you doing? Give me more of the good stuff that I need. And stop with the crap.” While I can appreciate a decadent dessert or panini like every other person sometimes my body just craves simplicity.
Ya dig? I’m looking forward to re-introducing more of the good whole foods that I love, and cutting back on the naughty treats. (Note I said cutting back, not cutting out!)
My good old friend the mail man paid me a visit today, and lookie what he brought.
A package all the way from overseas! England more specifically.
My new fellow blogger friend Jess from over at her new blog Almost Over Now has been blogging for ages now, and I really look forward to her posts. She is such an amazing person, and even though we have never met I can tell that we would be totally perfect buddies even though I’m a youngster.
Look at the cute little drawing that she sent along with the package. Not only is she a gifted runner but she is skilled at drawing too!
Now what was inside that package you ask…?
After seeing these bars all over the blog world I have been on the hunt trying to track these bad boys down. I have been unsuccessful though because apparently they are only for sale in the UK. So Jess was kind enough to send me some, and we did a little bar swap. (Keep your eyes peeled on your mail box girl! ;))
Nakd bars. Cashew Cookie, Apple Pie, Cocoa Orange and Pecan Pie.
TREK bars in Cocoa Brownie, Mixed Berry, Peanut & Oat, Cherry Crunch protein flapjack. And two more Nakd bars.
Thank you so so so much Jess. I love everything, and cant wait to try it out all.
Ill be taking both of your suggestions and try the two chocolate ones first.
You all know I have a slight obsession with tahini. I will shmeer it on anything. Lately I have really been digging my newest sandwich creation which I deem a more gourmet version of peanut butter and jelly. Kind of. I call it the… Bananhini Sandwich.
2 slices of whole wheat bread (or your favorite)
1 ripe banana
3 tbsp tahini (or more)
Bread, tahini layer, layer on your bananas, more tahini, bread. YUM!
I have been fueling my obsession with Synergy Kombucha.
The Raspberry Rush flavor is pure bliss.
The count down is still on. 3 days of my senior year left, and 7 teeny days until my birthday. :)
Can you guys tell I’m getting excited? What will the future hold? Will life be different once I hit the big 1-8? Sometimes I just stop and think about how much things are going to be changing this summer. Everything that I have ever known is going to be ending. But something totally new is beginning. Ill finally be classified as an adult. Ill be in college. Ill be working full time (for the summer at least!). Gosh when I started this blog almost a year ago I didn’t even have my drivers license. Time sure does fly!
Question of the day – Where about the world does your farthest friend live?
