Caturday 8.10.13


Happy Shark Week Caturday. This time last year we were prepping for the best party of all time. This year, unfortunately, Weaz has no interest in celebrating sharks (as you can perhaps tell from her expression above). And also I don’t have cable or friends so…

Anyway, her aversion might have something to do with the great white I had swimming around the apartment last year:

Breakfast Parfait


If you were part of the healthy living blog heyday of 2009, you are well acquainted with what I am about to present. I ate this breakfast–a combination of “banana soft serve” and “overnight oats” inspired by Angela Liddon’s vegan oat parfaits–every single day for probably a year. It was just absurd. I know banana soft serve was everywhere at the time, but I first saw it on Choosing Raw so I’m crediting Gena as the founder. I hadn’t had it in a very long time so I felt this morning a fitting time for a throwback…


Pineapple Coconut Stir Fry


I bought expensive makeup for the first time today. Send help. It went something like this: “Hi I need LOTS of help. I need makeup. All the makeup. I mean, I have some makeup but I think it’s probably not the right kind. It’s from CVS. I wear mascara and chapstick. I need, I guess, like real makeup. But I’m also a hot yoga teacher so I don’t really wear makeup and I when I do I just wash it off to teach but I’m almost 30 and I feel like I should not get carded at R-rated movies anymore, you know? But I don’t want to look like I have any makeup on at all. Do you have something like that? Cruelty-free, please.”

God bless the poor sales girl that got my sorry ass dropped in her lap this afternoon. Lots of samples, lots of questions and a hundred-and-frigging-twenty-dollars later, I left with what I’m told is enough makeup to make me look like I’m not wearing any makeup at all for a solid year. Ca-ching. Both my boyfriend and my roommate reacted with a: “Hey, your face looks good.” So let’s celebrate with stir fry on the cheap.

Day Trip: Greenville SC

Screen shot 2013-08-04 at 9.36.05 AM

Yesterday we drove 200 miles just to eat falafel. Sort of.

Our story (and we’re sticking to it) is that we drove 200 miles to bike the Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville SC and then maybe eat falafel along the way. But we all know the real driving force here now don’t we?


Healthyass Blueberry Pancake


One time I was like, “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a sweet counterpart to the savory omelet?” I ruminated on it for days minutes and then realized that’s pretty much what we here in the grand US of A call a pancake. Perhaps you’re curious about the singularity of the cake in question. Who eats just one pancake anyway? You will, sassypants. I suppose you could split the batter into two or three babycakes, but I prefer one fat monster roughly the size of a large dinner plate, slathered in peanut butter, downed with coffee. Tomato, tomahto… healthyass pancake.


Banana Oatmeal Cream Pies


I don’t know when or why or why I remember, but one time my mom said something to someone along the lines of: “With Katie, it’s what you see is what you get.” And she’s right. I can’t disguise my emotions (or lack thereof) to save my life (or a relationship). I don’t know (or care?) enough about makeup to convince you I look better than I do. I am at all times covered in cat hair and do not brush my own. It’s all laid out there, no surprises. These cookies, though? These peanut butter buttercream-stuffed cookie sandwiches are some deceitful little mothers… Vegan, gluten-free and–BY GOD–full of oats. (Yeah, I said “butter butter.”)
