Good news my friends! Dentist says I have no cavities AND my outrageous coffee addiction was not questioned or scolded. Even though I love my hygienist and she’s super sweet, I’m happy to not be heading back for another six months.
By the time I got home from grocery shopping, I was pretty hungry, so while putting away the goods, I snacked on a banana SOYJOY bar.
A few weeks back, the company sent me some samples to try out, along with some great workout loot.
When I first got the package, I tried the strawberry and thought it was just ok, and I also tried the blueberry and liked that one a little better. But surprisingly enough, I really liked the banana flavor!
I say surprisingly, because even though I adore bananas, I usually do not like anything banana-flavored. But this had great flavor and kind of reminded me of banana bread!
By the time my groceries were put away, it was time to dive head first into lunch…which meant it was time to tackle the mango that’s been sitting in my fridge. I bought it on a whim last week and decided that today would be the perfect day to put it to use.
FYI: I clearly need a tutorial on how to cut a mango…I was a mess.
Today’s smoothie consisted of a frozen banana, a mango, 3 frozen strawberries, about 1/2-3/4 cup vanilla almond milk, and chia seeds.
While my smoothie blended away, I put together a little veggie plate, using some extra veggies that we received from yesterday’s party.
Having a bag of fresh, pre-cut veggies at my immediate disposal makes me an incredibly happy camper. It’s the little things.
This afternoon, the sun has been shining bright, so I decided to take my lunch outdoors for a change.
Who says you can’t drink smoothies out of a red wine glass?
Veggies + hommus = Always a winning combo.
Talk about a fruit & veggie loaded meal, right? And to make things even better, the smoothie was out of this world! Not only was the flavor great, but the chia seeds helped make everything so nice and thick.
I love it!
Question for the Afternoon:
What little things have made YOU happy today?
