Hey hey hey!
I want to thank you all SO much for the sweet comments on Monday’s post and I’m SO glad you guys didn’t judge me for bringing out the hoes!
Ahh, pain meds…such a FUN ingredient in the recipe of recovery!
So, it’s been slow, but I can tell I’ve made some definite progress over the last couple of days. I’m still not able to bear weight on my leg (thus causing me to mutter obscenities every time I have to reach for those
*&^% super helpful crutches), and I get a little dizzy if I’m up for more than a few minutes at a time, but my digestive system is finally “moving” along (um, TMI?), my appetite is back, and, as of yesterday I was finally allowed welcomed back the world of the showered and shampooed!
Wait, what was that about my
ability to type run on sentences appetite?
Oh yeah, it’s BACK!
And JUST in time to celebrate another GREEN-filled Wednesday with Jenn and all my other fellow foodies! After checking out my eats, be sure to mosey on over to Peas & Crayons to see how everyone else is greening it up this month!
Now you won’t see any of my usual Snacky Kathy-ness going on here because well, honestly, for the last two days, I’ve only been awake long enough to pee, eat, and mumble something (coherent or not) to my babysitter of the day (my family is taking shifts) before it’s off to La La Land with my two hoes! 😉
But as interesting as THOSE escapades sound, I’m willing to bet you came here today to see some food! So, without further
hoe talk ado, let’s see
some GREEN eats!
Luckily, I’ve been able to manage my own meals as long as I keep them simple. While I don’t mind having some help around the house, there are few out there who can be trusted with the consistency of a GOOD smoothie. So while I DID enlist the hand of my babysitter/kitchen assistant in the production of one of the best GREEN smoothies I’ve made in a while, I was sure to handle all the controls! 😉
And lucky for YOU, I wasn’t flying high on pain meds at the time, so I actually remember what all went into the blender!
Two words: PB&J Sandwich!
Wait, is that two words or would it be five due to abbreviation…yeah, NOW I’m on pain meds…please excuse any typos! 😉
Recipe at the bottom of this
Egg whites, sprouts, and my next #strangebutgood concoction sandwiched between two slices of perfectly toasted
wrinkly cinnamon raisin English muffin.
Recipe coming Friday!
Sweet & Spicy Sweet Potato Soup with spinach and cilantro, a sprinkle of nutritional yeast, and a little crunchy addition provided by these beauties…
Sweet apple flavor, crisp-crunchy texture, and absolutely PERFECT with the warm, spiciness of the soup!
Now I’m not usually much of a dessert person, and I’m REALLY not much on Key lime, but, when I got a craving for something a little sweet the other night, I just couldn’t resist throwing in another GREEN eat so I thought I’d try another of the
Flip flavors that Chobani sent me last week…
Verdict: HOLY YUM!!!
The graham cracker and white chocolate chip topping was ahhhh-mazing…and surprisingly, not too sweet at all! Hmm, I think I’m seeing some pancake-spiration coming from this! 😀
But for now, how about some PB&J?
