It’s WEDDING SUNDAY!!!!! I don’t know if I’m the only freak of nature that is this obsessed with Wedding Sunday but I pretty much look forward to this day all week.
And tonight is finally the season premiere of not one but TWO shows- Bridezillas and all time fav My Fair Wedding!!! I may or may not be obsessed with David Tutera but i mean honestly what can’t this guy do? He’s incredible!
ahhh how can life get much better :)? The only thing that’s missing right now is my giraffe but he will be visiting soon enough so we can go to the beach and sloth around together. I didn’t think it would be this hard to be apart but I think we are so used to being together that we don’t really know what to do with ourselves when the other isn’t around.
Anyways, I’ve really been wanting to try a kelp noodle dish lately just to mix up my daily salad routine but haven’t been to the store/don’t really know where to look for kelp noodles. So instead I turned to my handy dandy notebook (jk Ani’s Raw Food Essentials) and made her teriyaki noodles for dinner last night.
I was surprised by how much it felt like i was really eating noodles! I didn’t feel like i was missing out on carbs at all. Only problem was that it didn’t last long enough on my plate. I will definitely be making more carrot noodle dishes and trying out different sauces…. I’m thinking spaghetti might be next.
And for breakfast, my usual shake
I don’t know about you, but I like something to chew on in my food. I find that it slows me down while I’m eating and allows me to enjoy my shakes longer so I like to add just a little bit of quinoa.
I don’t really measure when i make this so these are all approximates but in case you’re interested….
Chewy Smoothie (any recommendations for a better name?)
1/8 cup uncooked quinoa -> (i usually cook 1/4 cup the night before so i have 2 servings worth on hand)
2 handfuls of spinach
1/3 cup of cucumber
1 scoop sun warrior vanilla protein powder
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup almond milk
3/4 cup of frozen blueberries
blend and enjoy!
And don’t forget WEDDING SUNDAY tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
