And so we arrive at the last day of my one week experience with vegan eating. I have less than 10 hours to go! I think I will make it. At least I hope. Saturday nights have a funny way of throwing all eating plans completely off track!
Along with a week of vegan eating, I’ve also been consuming one Green Monster a day (a goal for February as you may remember!). Today’s concoction was particularly delicious because it contained 1/4 cup coconut milk.
Green Monster includes: 1/4 cup coconut milk, 3/4 cup almond milk, 1 cup frozen mango, 1/2 banana, 1 handful of baby spinach, and a side of Dr. Snuggles
I just had a quick lunch of a couple of clementines and an open-faced peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Although I usually eat natural peanut butter, I’m currently out so the regular peanut butter had to suffice (which I like to call “dessert peanut butter” because of the added sugar and oil!). Honestly, I much prefer the taste of dessert peanut butter but usually stick to the natural.
I’m out to dinner at a friends’ house tonight. She reads my blog so knows about my WoVE (Week of Vegan Eating) and is planning a vegan dinner because of it. See the beauty of maintaining a blog? Friends will know all about your quirky eating plans and will accommodate you as such. Or maybe I just have awesome friends?
Henry is excited to be going out on a Saturday night. I try to refrain from constantly saying LOOK HOW CUTE MY KID IS because that certainly gets old after a while, but I can’t help it with this picture especially.
LOOK HOW CUTE MY KID IS
The expression he makes when he is “talking”
It’s during the day after a rough night (such as last night!) that he is extra-cute. I am convinced this is some sort of Darwinian, “survival of the species” thing. I mean, look at that double chin! It’s almost enough to get me to forget the constant interruptions to my sleep (note: ALMOST).
