Happy Friday! I have a lot to be thankful for today- first and foremost, my health. My headache is mostly gone and I’m back in the swing of things. I have a date with the ladies tonight and I’m glad I feel well enough to be excited about it. I’m going to squeeze in an extra workout tomorrow for my missed day yesterday. I’m sticking with today as my planned “off” workout day.
For breakfast I made a DIY smoothie, consisting of almond milk, flax seed, frozen cherries, 1/4 of a frozen banana, frozen mango and spinach. My lunch is leftover Sweet Potato and Cauliflower puree and a small side spinach salad with almonds and dressing via the Arugula Orange salad. In case you were wondering what coconut milk, water, sweet potatoes, onions and cauliflower look like when boiling, this is it:
Innocent enough, right? WRONG. This mixture and I had quite the kitchen catastrophe on Wednesday night. If any of you use a small hand-held blender (I can’t be the only one…) be sure to let the mixture cool before blending. I did not and ended up with the top of my Hamilton Beach blender blown off and a blast of hot sweet potato to the face. If you ask Rob, this is a typical kitchen mishap for me as I have a tendency to spill anything and everything. But if I can help just one person avoid this disaster then sharing it is for the best!
As I said above, I’m looking forward to girls night. We’re heading downtown to see SPANK!, a parody play of 50 Shades of Grey. I’ve heard great reviews and can’t wait for a night of laughs. I thought I’d be tempted by a glass of wine but seeing as I still have an inkling of a headache, that temptation has disappeared. The world works in mysterious ways!
