So this morning I really really really did not want to do my Wedding Workout. I complained to myself a lot, wasted time on Twitter, chopped some kale — and then finally got to it. Yes, it hurt, but not as badly as I had anticipated. I think it helped to stretch out those muscles a bit. I would take a hot soak, but I tried that last night and it didn’t go so well. It seems our water heater isn’t getting the goods hot enough; it also seems our tub is too shallow for a good soak. Oy.
After my torture workout, I prepared a smoothie that truly did resemble sludge.
I’ve been missing my Green Goddesses of Spirulina lately, but I’m trying to limit my sugar and fat intake, and the deliciousness of those rest in the almond butter + agave. This sludgy fellow consisted of the following ingredients:
I had the coconut milk yogurt looking bored in the fridge, so I figured I’d put it to use. The orange chunks are,of course, papaya. This smoothie was a higher calorie one than my usual, since the yogurt itself has 150 calories and the Amazing Grass has 110. I think it probably ended up being around 285 calories. It was ok. I’m about to get on the Green Monster bandwagon and start shreddin’ some fresh green in my glass! Have you guys tried a Green Monster yet?
After cleaning the casa, I sat down to yet another big messy delicious lunch! Ah, this is so my favorite and now I’m all out of tofu. Good thing is, I can get that from the regular supermarket (boo!) so that eliminates any scary spending that could ensue with another trip to WF this week.
I am loving the addition of the organic sauerkraut! It’s not the most pretty of meals, but it just tastes so good and makes me feel even better. I squeezed a little fresh lemon on it too. Mmmmm.
I’m actually writing this post while listening to my online class — isn’t that so bad? Can you tell I’m addicted to my blog? Well, it’s my new baby, not even a month old… I’m allowed! Right? Right.
Side note: Funny story. I wrote a post with a title from that Big Mac Snack Wrap commercial. Since I did that, every single day I get hits from people searching that commercial! It makes me giggle, thinking of looking for something related to a Big Mac and finding a Vegan Healthy Living blog. 🙂 Well, thanks for checking me out, Big Mac lurkers!
Have a wonderful evening!
