I haven’t eaten as many greens this week as I usually do and part of the reason is that we’re going out of town in a week and I don’t want to spend a bunch of money on produce. Today, I seriously made a dent in my frozen veggie collection.
First off, I started with the worlds ugliest, but still tastey, SIAB.
Why so ugly?
I was a little spacey when I woke up this morning and initially forgot to put in the vanilla whey protein. I had a fully assembled SIAB with granola on top. I had to remove the granola, put the smoothie back in the vitamix, add the whey, then reassembled with the granola. That’s why you can barely see the granola and why it’s a darker green. I also went a little crazy with the frozen spinach. This is a peach SIAB.
1/2 frozen banana
1 huge sliced peach
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop vanilla whey protein
1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
bit of Stevia
heavy on the cranberry flax granola
It reminds me the slime they used on You Can’t Do That on Television. Look familiar?
My morning was spent working from home, a break for No More Trouble Zones, and my photographer dropped off my bridal portrait.
I used leftover un-chicken fried rice, sans egg white and added frozen green beans and peas, which I roasted until they were slightly crispy. Then I added a Dr. Paeager’s veggie burger.
This looks huge but was only 1/2 cup quinoa. The loads of veggies really bulked it up.
Early afternoon, Brad and I headed to the Register of Deeds to get our marriage license, which took forever. We initially tried to go in through the county courthouse, but they wouldn’t let me in because of my camera. What a dumb rule, everybody has a camera on their phone and phones are totally allowed. So weired.
Luckily we could go into the Register of Deeds office from another side of the building. The whole process took longer than I expected and I think everyone waiting with us were plotting to stage a coup by the time we left.
Next, was a quick trip to Target where I tried this.
It’s just water with a very small hint of blackberry. I liked it!
Lunch was pretty filling and I didn’t get hungry until 5:30 pm, which was great because we’re probably going to have a later dinner than usual with Brad’s mom and grandmother. They’re coming into town for my bridesmaid’s luncheon tomorrow. I’m so excited about giving them their gifts!
