IS CAKE AND ICE CREAM!!!
That's right. And it's not "Here in my arms"! Tee Hee!
But guess what just was? Well not in my arms, but in my belly...
Cake and Ice Cream. Now hold your horses! Not just any cake and ice cream...Somewhat healthy cake and ice cream. Can I just say Thank God for Pinterest? Seriously. I know when you look under the food category more than 75% of the food you see on there is like brownies stuffed in cookies and rolled in sugar and then deep fried, but every so often you find wonderful healthy food blogs.
Now back to this Cake and Ice Cream. Thankfully I discovered Chocolate Covered Katie's Single Serving Cake recipes. This is a God Send for me considering my past cookie and cupcake binges. Yeah those aren't pretty. So tonight after my very delicious Lentil and Rice stuffed whole wheat tortilla with Creamy Avocado Sauce I whipped up the following recipes:
One-Minute Chocolate Cake
Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothie
So freaking good! I cannot lie! Other Recipes that I'm obsessed with at the moment include
Yes! They are all good. Put them in your face. Now!!
Ha. So onward from that food-gasim to what's going on in the ever changing adventures of the somewhat crazy and awesome person that has typed up this blog you are currently eye-balling.
First Thing: Juicing
Yes I have started to juice. Yes I did watch Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. Yes, I did buy the same juicer that Joe had on there. And Yes I do feel better now that I started to Juice. The first week I started to juice I lost about 6 pounds, probably water weight. Then my period and a few wild weekends have happened and I have gained 4 of it back, but I'm trying to control my intake on the weekends. The weekends are the Devil you know that? I have got to get a grip on them. Anyone with any advice on how to get through the weekends without binging please feel free to share! I have included a picture of my Beet, Cabbage, Carrot, Pear Juice. It's really tasty. I think the beets give it an earthy type flavor, people often describe it as dirt, but I like it!
And this is my Kale, Spinach, Cucumber, Celery, Apple, and Lemon Juice.
I enjoy Mason Jars if you haven't noticed. :)
One bad thing about juicing is JUICE TONGUE!!
And this was the morning of the first time I used my juicer. Please don't judge how rough I look!
Second Thing: I had a Colonic today
Groupon Offer. Always wanted to know what the big deal was. Pretty Good Experience. No, I didn't lose 10 pounds. Didn't even lose 1 pound. But I did enjoy it and had an energy specialist give me a foot massage and a hand massage so it wasn't all bad. Yes, i have been to the bathroom like 8 times tonight. I actually didn't go to yoga for the fear that I couldn't trust a fart. Oh the Horror! Would I do it again?? Perhaps if I had pain and really needed one. What can I say, Curiosity got the best of me!
Third Thing: I'm trying to Eat A Little Cleaner
Thank you Food Inc, Vegecated, Hungary for a Change, Forks Over Knives, Waistland and In Defense of Food for making me think about what I've been actually been putting in my mouth in the past. No I'm not here to preach that you shouldn't eat processed food that has more than 5 ingredients in it, or that you should eat 6 small meals a day, or that you should drink green tea everyday to boost your metabolism. I would never do that. But I am trying these things, not for weight loss, but to feel better about myself. And why do I need to feel better about myself? I'll show you.
Do you see that? Yep that's an all natural grey strike right down the back of my noggin. I actually enjoy the strike, kinda. 23 and grey hair already...how rough can my life be! :)
So yes I have kinda revamped my kitchen for cleaner eating...
And I've also been eating things like Portabello Stuffed Acorn Squash with Stewed Greens
And Overnight Chia Oatmeal
Even Pikachu Loves Oatmeal!
I know I'm eating more calories and that doesn't bother me cause feel like they're healthy calories. Makes sense right?
So that's it for now! Besides Surgery which is in a little over a month. Getting a little nervous, but I'm strangely super excited as well! Like I said, Good things are coming people! Good things!
Look At this Face! I cannot tell a lie!
