It led me to the store where I stocked up on TONS of fruits and veggies. Smoothies, salads, fresh fruit galore. My soul is overflowing just looking at all of this.
- persimmons (I smell a banana/date/persimmon smoothie coming on)
- huge bag of limes (hot water with lime, juice, salad dressings)
- mangoes (I know out of season, but yep I'm eating em with cinnamon)
- mixed lettuce leaves
I also recently ordered 11 pounds of dates from 7HotDates. They are $100 about, but so worth it. I can eat all those in a few months and I'll be sharing em so they may go by more quickly, but at this time of year I stay away from GF/Vegan premade desserts and stuff because my digestion suffers and I can pack on a few pounds. People don't always share how much butter/fat they add to their desserts so I like to just make stuff myself. Although this season WILL find me making ONE fatty sweet potato pie with pecan maple sugar icing. Yep...I'll post that one!
I had my crazy rant the other day brought on by the influx of commercials that were just driving me crazy.
Catching Fire. Yes I am a fan fan fan.... I went to the very first showing on last nite's opening nite. I had a blast. It was nice to get out of the house for a minute.
I've been busy envisioning m life and having lots of great raw and fresh foods. I was just mentioning to someone how funny my body can be. It's like freezing outside and I was craving banana ice cream!! So, I made me a smoothie with bananas, dates, coconut water and ate it all chunked up. It was amazing and hit the craving. Shouldn't I be craving pie at this time of year??? lol.
As Thanksgiving week comes up, I am getting the menu together for my house. I will have a nice sized plate of cooked vegan deliciousness, but I will be doing the 5K Turkey Trot (right in my garage on the treadmill) as a way to start the day and by tonite I will know what I am serving.
Today I had an Apple Pie smoothie:
- 1 organic apple
- 2 bananas (frozen)
- 1 c almond milk
- 8 dates
- 4 cups spinach
- blend. bliss
No exercise today. Just some pretty serious household cleaning and some kettlebell swings for my challenge.
Are you living your vision for your best life????
