New and Shiny

July 13, 2009

I had an awesome day today! 😀 Work/School whatever you want to call it went awesome – busy and productive but not TOO busy. I’ve had an excellent night complete with some Gilmore Girls watching, and listening to Taylor Swift while doing this and that here on the computer (edit this/write this/send email/blog!)

 

So… remember how my blender broke? I spent ALL of last week without Green (or any type of) smoothies! I’m blaming the fact that my cold hasn’t gone away entirely on this fact. Anyways, this weekend I fulfilled a life-long years-long dream. I got a Magic Bullet!

It is so cool. I’m in love. It makes awesome smoothies. And according to that fancy 10-second recipes cookbook you see there, it can do lots of other cool stuff too. I have to pack the spinach in, but it still works! 😀

 

Breakfast this morning was, of course, a Green Smoothie:

 

Today’s mix was:

 

  • Spinach (obv!)
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 C frozen canteloupe
  • 1 T flax meal
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 C Original Almond Breeze

 

Followed by some strawberries with Stonyfield farm yogurt (I was delighted to find it this weekend – never tried it before, and it is delish! And excellent for the consumer conscience 🙂 ) If you’re American, make sure you print off some coupons from their website – they don’t work for Canada! 😥

 

 

Lunch was cheese tortellini with marinara sauce (meh – too garlicy)

 

 

and a wonder-salad, made with

  • Spinach
  • Goat Cheese
  • Strawberries
  • Pine Nuts
  • Bell Peppers
  • Pesto Parmesan dressing

 

 

 

 

I had a super tasty snack of sugar snap peas with roasted red pepper white bean dip:

 

but I was too hungry when I got home – so I dove into the crackers. They were camera shy. oh well. Dinner was spaghetti and garlic toast – delish!

 

 

There may have also been a camera-shy bowl of fudge swirl ice cream. Don’t worry, I’ll have some tomorrow too 🙂

    Don’t you just LOVE the bullet? I have one and would be lost without it!
