What was the best thing you ate today? If you’re a normal person you probably answered that pretty quickly. But if you’re me, every single thing you ate was “the very best thing you ate today!” If pressed, I guess I’d say the juice. But that choice wasn’t easy.
My morning started off perfectly with a 60 minute hot yoga class. I picked up a 30-day unlimited pass to Evolation Yoga on Groupon and I am so excited to get my yogi on this month. Minus one child’s pose during the camel pose, I managed to huff and puff my way through the entire hour.
It’s a good thing that working out kills my appetite for a bit, because my day got away from me and food didn’t happen until the afternoon. The husband was home from a night shift when I got back from yoga and I just couldn’t resist crawling into bed with him and the dog.
At 1:30 my friend Kim came by to pick us up and we set off for the hospital that we’ll be doing our clinical practice at this upcoming semester. We’re all getting pretty nervous and we wanted to do a walk through to set our minds at ease. I even put on my working-lady clothes so it would feel more like the real thing.
When we got home, the husband and I headed out to Ashker’s.
<– Fraggle Rock; love it!
He got a perfectly thick espresso and I got a juice!
My mother-in-law had to mail me a gift receipt and she sweetly included some fun $ with it. As you’ll see, we took full advantage of it.
Ashker’s was great about letting me go off-menu and build my own juice.
Kale + spinach + cucumber + carrot.
So dang good. Veggie juice might be the only thing on the planet I find more refreshing than diet pop!
Then we got Chinese take-out. Beef and broccoli for Adam, a ridiculously giant plate of crab rangoon for me.
Holy frick you guys, I love crab rangoon so much. Too much, in fact; I ate it at least once every other day during the first week of the new year. Now you know why I wasn’t blogging much then 😉
That plate is special too.
Pink glass, which my mom actually collects, from right here in Buffalo.
But I could have basically eaten off of the floor,
with rangoon it’s all good.
My late afternoon was spent on Pinterest. I’ve been trolling people’s pages for weeks, it was high time for me to finally create my own account.
I made myself feel so full and disgusting with Chinese food that I thought I’d never be hungry again. But several hours later we were out running errands and suddenly I was ready to gnaw my own arm off. I made a 1 oz bag of trail mix and devoured it before I could even think about getting home to my camera.
The mix included sesame sticks, peanuts, and honey roasted sesame seeds.
And when Adam found a $10 pizza deal for any pizza with any toppings, I totally bit. And totally ate a slice in the car on the ride home! We had a nice dinner.
Romaine topped with celery, buckwheat groats, and yogurt Cesar dressing.
Pizza (3 slices total) with jalapeños and pineapple.
Totally delicious, thanks for the inspiration, Kath.
