I was healthy as hell today.
I’ve been ultra lazy on the food front lately. Over a lifetime my diet has run the gamut from McDonald’s on the daily to shitty chemical-laden diet foods to hyper-vigilant organic whole foods only, and right now I’m somewhere around the “Mmmmeh let’s drink vodka and order french fries at 2am on a Monday” zone. I’d hardly say I’m unhealthy; I’m just… bored and uninspired. I never really cook or experiment in the kitchen anymore or get particularly excited about my food at all. I swear to god if I eat one more sad sorryass soysage…
So after a week of back to back to back events filled with alcohol and garbage food, I decided to throw it back to my earlier blogging days and give a damn about what I eat. Naturally, it involved all the usual suspects: a green smoothie, almond butter, the Whole Foods hot bar and a famous food blogger recipe. Hi, 2009 called and it says DON’T FORGET THE BANANA SOFT SERVE.
My smoothie was easy sleazy–frozen banana, almond milk, frozen spinach and ginger root–and followed by a 3-mile run. (WHO AM I?)
Angela’s book is beautiful and flawlessly executed. It’s stuffed full of the same kind of quality recipe creation we’ve all learned to know and love on her blog and is (in my opinion) one of the most successful web-to-print food blogger transitions I’ve seen yet.
I stocked up on some goods to make her Protein Power Goddess Bowl for dinner (and it’s awesome). I also whipped up some overnight oats for the week and am definitely making Yolos (vegan Rolos) later.
Never one to skip a dessert, I stuffed some dates with almond butter and chocolate chips and did not regret it.
Anybody else hopping back on (or falling off) the health wagon?
