Hi!!!! How was your Monday?? I have to say- mine was pretty fantastic- and well- who likes Mondays?? Normally I am not a fan- but today was fabulous. Also- it’s Meatless Monday. Did you eat your veggies like your mother told you to?
But before I go into that- that’s my bestie from college who I haven’t seen in a YEAR! We had lunch yesterday. I miss you J!!! Here we are through the years (sadly I don’t have any college pics on my laptop)
That first one I think we are 19 (and underage. Whoops). Anyways!
So- did you eat your vegetarian meals today? I did. Like I said- I just think it’s good to try just ONCE a week to see if you can do it. The whole reason behind it being Monday is that it’s the beginning of the week and we are more likely to achieve goals when you start with a clean slate for the week. But you can always check out the website for more information!
I had green juice this am. Look at this.
Obviously I didn’t even realize that the back wasn’t attached until pulverized carrots were flying everywhere! Goodness. Lol
In the mix was:
YUMMMMMM- Honestly if I eat really clean with a lot of fruit and veggies and not any alcohol and cheese (even though I love those things) I just feel better.
I made this salad for dinner tonight after I taught and took hot yoga. It looks big- but it was perfect for dinner. I didn’t eat anything else after except a few vegan chocolate chips from Trader Joe’s.
In the mix was:
Romaine Lettuce, black beans, garbanzo beans, mung bean sprouts, broccoli and carrot slaw, cucumber, avocado, onion, nutritional yeast…I think that’s is. And I added a little of Goddess Dressing- I guess Annie’s is the original- but mine is from Whole Foods. It’s a tahini based dressing- tasty and vegan!
OK so I didn’t eat any of this today- but I’ve had it before. VEGAN ICE CREAM- chocolate cookie dough! Holy Yum I tell you. And look- little precious likes its. Also- this is made with coconut milk- not soy. Even better!
So remember- eat your veggies because your mother always told you to.
My day became wonderful because I finally got a new phone! I love my new iPhone!!
If you haven’t notice by now, I’m quite good at taking picks of myself. Smile!
One last side note- my friend Heather’s son Regan- is still in the icu recovering after being hit by a car- but he is progressing well and even stood up today! Please keep thinking positive thoughts for them and their family!!
I know so many of you read my blog (because I can see that I get over 100 hits when I post something) so please send me a comment (!!!) and let me know what you’d like for me to write about. I’d love your input!!
It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.” ~George Harrison
