The Rest of Yesterday and Today

I didn't end up eating the greens but I did drink my defrosted smoothie. I made it a while ago with avocado, banana, peanut butter, chia seeds and *I think* some sweetener like stevia or honey. Or was it apple? I don't remember. Anyhow that was sipped up during breaks from dance.

I got home around 9 and ate an uncounted amount of chipotle Triscuts topped with cashew and almond cheeze (pulp leftover from making milk plus spices and a touch of olive oil). Damn that was good. Well a salty pseudo-dinner-more-like-large-late-night-snack called for some dessert. Garrison declared that he was craving Guinness and peanut butter.

At the same time?

I wish I had a working camera so that I could have photographed what followed this. I was up for dessert too. Not like I hadn't eaten enough sugar during the workday but nonetheless, I'm easily convinced and very innovative.

Hershey bar. Split down the center. Spread peanut butter on one half. Place the other half on top. Take a bite. Close eyes and utter low, satisfied noises.

Now for the Guinness. Those who know me are aware that one beer is enough to make me unable to drive and I still had to go home for the evening so we split a can. The half-beer sized glasses were in the dish washer so we used a different beverage receptacle: champagne flutes. Yes, people who read this person who reads this, I drank Guinness out of a champagne flute. It was terribly classy, I wish I had a picture :(

  • 7am morning smoothie: almond milk, blueberries, greens chia seeds.
  • Mid morning snack attack: fresh blueberries, a nectarine, one banana.
  • Lunch: Jar salad with extra dressing this time and a clementine. 
  • Post lunch dessert craving caving: 2 small peanut butter cups, a little york peppermint patty AND a small Carvel Resse's Pieces Sundae (shoot me now).
  • I've also been popping fresh blueberries (probably not organic) in my mouth whenever I cross through the kitchen.
The meal plan for tonight is eggplant parmesan battered with whole wheat breadcrumbs over whole wheat farfalle topped with my tomato sauce that has been steeping all day with red wine and other goodies.

I think I'm also going to attempt to make a whole wheat chocolate cake sweetened with applesauce. Or maybe I should attempt to play with my bread maker. We'll see how ambitious I get.


  1. I drink Guinness for the lactation benefits (I found out the hops in dark beer helps.) I normally hate beer, and will be inebriated after more than one, but the taste finally grew on me. And if it helps me to feed the kids without making them drunk, awesome!

    And I would think all that fruit cancels out the candy, no? :)

  2. OOoooh! When I'm a nursing mom I'll have a great excuse to drink Guinness! Just an interesting thing- not that you care but Guinness isn't 100% vegan because it's thickened with the dust of some fish bones. I forget my source.

    Re fruit and candy--I'm not sure. Either way I was eating both when I wasn't hungry and both contained sugar in one form or another. Probably not good for me to consume more calories than my body needs.
