wow this week is flying by for me! friday and saturday i’ll be in western mass. tom has to attend some training thing out there tomorrow, and we’ll be staying overnight at his parent’s home since his cousin is having a high school graduation party in the area on saturday.
i’ll have to keep myself busy while he’s at training tomorrow…so far, i’m thinking mani/pedi and some mall time…sounds good, right?
getting back to today…i had another green monster morning. this one was a lil different…it had the usual handful of spinach as well as soy milk, but instead of a banana, i used half apple and some avocado. i really like the addition of avocado to these smoothies, it makes them nice n’ creamy and gives ’em a little bit more staying power.
for lunch, i made a bean, cheese & lettuce burrito and cut it up into easy to eat bite sized pieces. very necessary, since my mouth is feeling much better than yesterday but not 100% yet.
my lunch was light, so i had my dinner a bit earlier than usual. i plan on having ice cream for dessert later when i’m bound to get hungry again.
i’ve been wanting to make a yogurt bowl with the kashi honey sunshine cereal i bought last week, but i was afraid the cereal would be too big and crunchy for my sore gums and teeth. well, i opened the box and tried some, and they are a lot smaller and airy-er than i thought. i made a yogurt mess with 3/4 cup yogurt, 1 apple chopped into v.small pieces, a big handful of cereal, and a sprinkling of granola.
pictured is probably half of that mixture. i didn’t want to put too much in the bowl in case my mouth didn’t cooperate. but despite the crunchies, the small bite-sized pieces were painless to eat. i don’t think i’ve ever put apple in yogurt before (i usually stick to berries) and i enjoyed it a LOT, so you will be seeing this combo a few more times in the near future 🙂
i’ve already got my mind on dessert but i’m going to try to hold off for another hour. i have ice cream sandwiches, and mint n’ chip in the freezer, but it’s also been a while since i treated myself to some black cow (the ice cream shop across the street) hmm…decisions, decisions! what would you do?
