Combined with almond milk, this smoothie was almost overflowing!
In the midst of drinking, I came to the realization that I don’t particularly like smoothies made with frozen strawberries. The whole thing tasted kind of bland and icy. Frozen bananas for me from now on! Lunch was a helping of vegged-out quinoa leftovers and a hard-baked eggs. The best part was my own version of greek yogurt with fruit on the bottom. Strawberry jam and mini chocolate chips too for a kick of sweetness!
Afternoon snackage was a nice bowlful of sweet potato wedges with sunbutter on the side. This was an unexpected, awesomely delicious combo. Must do this again soon!
Yesterday’s dinner was a work of art, probably one of the greatest salads to date. All forms of veggies plus cranberries, manchego and goat blue cheeses, and lite Caesar dressing.
I ate this baby in front of the TV watching The Biggest Loser. Hey, at least it was a salad. I have been known to order Chinese takeout for Biggest Loser nights. Haha.
Even my dessert was healthy-ish. Another paleo brownie was almond butter, topped with Arctic Zero and chocolate chips.
See, a fabulous day of eats! I was most pleased and actually really nice and satisfied all day. And I wasn’t only satisfied with food, but with my brand new clothes. I love how awesome you feel wearing all the new things you got for Christmas. Like a million bucks.
Even matched my earrings perfectly.
That awesome outfit were yesterday’s dubs. Today was more of a lace day.
Pretty and functional. I normally wear the purple shirt without anything underneath but given the incredibly conservative Catholic hospital I’m currently seeing patients at, I figured I should add a few inches just to be safe. Plus, the white lace matched my shoes…which you can see here, kicked off in the middle of Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
I went to the store for an iron and ended up talking myself out of that and into a stellar gel kitchen mat. It was on my Christmas list and I didn’t get one so I figured I could just buy one for myself! Thank you gift card. Why did I have my shoes off you ask? It’s not like I was going to buy a mat without trying it out for myself! That would be silly. This one that I bought felt amazing. I used it while cooking up my skinny cajun pasta tonight.
Loved how comfy I was the whole time! Now I’m off to do some more population genetics problems and get to bed early. I have a patient at 8:20 tomorrow morning which means I need to be on the road by 7:15am. Not sure I’m going to have enough time to work out before I get in the car so I might have to move the sweat session to Thursday evening. So g’night all, sleep well!
