Lean Green Eating Machine

Hey hey everybody!

Quick story before we get to start partying WIAW style.

An quirky little elderly lady came to our department to have a CT scan today. The particular scan she required only took about 4-5 minutes. This was the following exchange between her and I:

Me: Well, that’s it! We’re finished!

Her: What? That’s all?

Me: Yes ma’am.

Her: SWEET!

Hahahaha! This seriously made my day!

Now, let’s paaaaarty!

What would we do without the lovely Jenn to put our favorite blogger link party together each week? Be sure to stop by Peas & Crayons and show a little comment love!

Because we don’t know you’re readin’ if your not commentin’! 😉

This morning started out with some 1/2 caff coffee in my KMB mug and some (unpictured) vitamins.

Good thing it was piping hot, because all I was craving when I woke up was a big, creamy smoothie….I know, it’s like 35 degrees outside…I never said I make any sense in the am!

And there she is! The biggest, best-est green smoothie I’ve ever made!

This super thick and super creamy smoothie was only made better by a drizzle of melted coconut peanut butter!

I love how it has that “magic shell” effect when it hits something cold!

By the way, have you entered my giveaway for a chance to win your own coconut peanut butter? If not, click here!!

For lunch, I had some leftover “Vegan Green Chili” that I made for a potluck at work last week.

The recipe needs a little tweaking before it’s blog ready, but trust me, this will be one to bookmark! 😉

Along with my bowl of soup, I had a bowl of citrus! 😉

Lime for the chili, orange for dessert, and lemon for…

Tea!!

I only actually ended up drinking the Stash green teas
(definitely my new favorite green tea)

My snack today may have missed Halloween, but it did not miss pleasing my taste buds!

Reminds me of the Little Debbie brownies I used to eat as a kid!

And finally, for dinner, I had a delicious salad full of…GREEN!

Romaine, zucchini, green apple, celery, chickpeas, and goat cheese drizzled in this dressing.

And I finished off the rest of the apple with a dash of cinnamon and some peanut butter!

Water count for the day:

Are you ready for this?

120 ounces!!

Yep, and I only peed like 396223 times!….Sorry, TMI? 😉

What is your favorite green food?

Or more importantly, would you eat this:

I printed off the recipe at work today for Avocado Pie and nobody said they would try it! Looks like I need to have a blogger party and invite all of you guys over!
