I bought Matt, Sophia, and myself stainless steel water bottles so I know we aren't drinking leached chemicals from plastics and it's more enviromentally friendly. Here is a picture of our water bottles. Now Matt and I's are Klean Kanteen's and they cost a pretty penny, but we wanted big ones for work (they are 40oz) You can get stainless steel water bottles anywhere now. Meijer has a great selection. If you are interested in a Klean Kanteen check out "A few of My Favorite Things" I have a link there.
This morning when I got up I was not hungry at all. Very weird for me because usually I am starving for breakfast. I made myself a "Green Monster" aka a green smothie with 3 cups of spinach, 1 frozen banana, 1 T. almond butter(you could use any nut butter), 1 C. almond milk (you could use any milk), a scoop of chia seeds (similar to flaxseed high in Omega 3's, I get mine at the Vitamin Shoppe), and a scoop of Amazing Grass
I know some of you may be a little skeptical of this very GREEN drink, but you cannot taste the spinach. It tastes like a peanut butter banana smoothie. I even have Matt hooked on them! Now that is saying a lot!
CONFESSION- This is my favorite cup and it is a #7. I try to only drink my smoothies out of it.
Lunch today was from my new favorite Southside joint called Sandella's. LOVE it! They have several vegetarian options and several non-vegetarian options, and kids meals are only $2.50! I had the Greek Salad.
I went to the grocery today and can I just tell you I could spend hours at any grocery! Of course that may have a little (ok a lot) to do with the fact that I get to go alone. I love my fam, but a girl needs some alone time.
After the grocery it was past dinner time, so as we say in my family, "It was a fend night" as in every man for himself. Yeah right, who am I kidding, I still figure out what everyone is eating. I had an avocado and Mary's Gone Crackers (love these crackers, I get them @ Kroger in organic section) Matt had a "Green Monster" and cheese and triscuits, and I would love to tell you that Sophia had something amazinly healthy, but she had Easy Mac! Hey when you're 3 your pretty set on only a few foods.
I was very excited tonight to purchase my new juicer, so I rounded out the day with a hearty serving of some fruits and veggies. My mom and I experimented with a veggie we hadn't juiced yet. The beet. So here is what went in: 1 beet, 2 carrots, 1 green apple, 1 lemon
And now let me introduce you to this fabulously beautiful pink juice! TAH-DA!!
Tomorrow- To buy organic or not? I'll tell you how I decide.
Peace, love, and pretty pink beet juice,
