So This morning started off with a long awaited Green Monster! An Almond Butter, Banana, Pomegranate green monster to be exact.
Last night was amazing, I had some great dances and even did a few moves … IN THE AIR … I will definitely be finding that partner again 😀 Needless to say I slept well afterwards.
I awoke ready to get my green on.
Almond Butter, Banana, Pomegranate Green Monster :
1-2 tbsp chia seeds
lots of cinnamon 😉
2 extra large handfuls of fresh spinach
frozen banana – broken into pieces
1 tbsp almond butter
4-8 ounces pomegranate kefir – depends on desired consistancy
topped with a swirl of almond butter and Udi’s artisan granola
This was like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in liquid form. It was a heavenly combination, refreshing, party in my mouth. I will be making this again soon! 🙂
Song of the Day: “Elephant Gun” by Beirut.
I came across this band a little over a year ago and fell in love. They are without a doubt on my list of bands to see live. This particular song was the one I chose for my reel on my website as well.
At work today I came across a photo link from a performance I did back in February with my college’s swing dance group. I didn’t even know these existed!

I am the one wearing the tiny black hat. 😉 Kind of weird to be browsing through videos on you tube and come across a slideshow of yourself, though …
Lunch and dinner were Pad See Ew. I waitressed at a family owned Thai restaurant for 2 years and got to eat for free while working! I was spoiled rotten in the category of Thai food. So I was so excited to go for Thai with the office. The portions were so big that I easily made dinner out of it. Two birds with one stone 😉
I asked them to make my tofu ‘soft’ tofu – which means they cook it with the rest of the meal instead of deep frying it first. I like the tofu better this way, it takes on a bit too much of a spongy texture when fried + is better for you. Two stones again? 😛 It was just the way thai noodles should be with a good bit of vegetables in the form of broccoli, cabbage, onions, and bean sprouts.
After a 45 min trip to the gym I had an amazing apple.
A very photogenic apple 🙂 Do you find that an apple sliced thin like potato chips is more appetizing then one normally?? I found it to be so. A thin, crisp burst of apple goodness with every bite.
Still Craving something else I turned to the mini peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Trader Joe’s organic creamy peanut butter with apricot jelly on small rice crackers. Why I love small rice crackers? – The serving size is about 35-40 crackers! .. in love –
You can eat them open faced…
Topped with dried cranberries…
Or as an actual sandwich 😉
PB & J can be too much fun, on your night off.
What’s your favorite way to eat Peanut Butter and Jelly? Do you prefer a different nut butter?
