Breakfast was my second attempt at a green smoothie since I got sick. The first one was an epic fail because it was so sweet it just made me sick again. This one was way less sweet. All I used was a banana, some almond milk, some Vega shake and go smoothie powder and a lot of spinach. I was in desperate need of greens and they cut the sweetness a lot. I drank about 3/4 of it. Success!
Since I didn't have much time between the gym and work I only had time to make the smoothie so I grabbed lunch next door. I couldn't get a photo since I wasn't alone but I had this one and it is the same exact thing I ate for lunch. Rice and beans with stewed green beans and tomato. Smaller portion than this though. Another great meal.
I got home from work at about 3:45 and decided to have some avocado on toast as a snack to hold off until dinner. As you can see this poor avocado needed to be eaten since it had been sitting all week. I'll finish it off tomorrow I'm sure.
For dinner I'm planning on a salad. A small salad. Yum!
So, as I promised here is a review of:
Marmalade Umlaut!!! This is Maud over at Food Feud's awesome zine that she has been producing since 2007. As I have mentioned before, I had intended on purchasing a few issues for a while but for some reason just never did. I FINALLY came to my senses and decided that I would get 4. I chose issues 13 and 18 where raw foods are a focus and then decided to let Maud choose the other two for me. She chose issues 6 and 15 and they were both great choices!
Truth be told I had never really seen a zine before and wasn't sure what to expect. Needless to say I was really excited about what was presented in these zines. Maud provides funny anecdotes, amazing recipes (duh!), kick ass cartoons (like seriously super fun and cute), holiday menus and conversations (the conversations were a great touch, I really felt like I was a fly on the wall), poetry, tips and her insights on a variety of topics. She has a very conversational tone and the presentation is fun, unique and incredibly creative. I can't say that I have a favorite issue because I enjoyed all of them so much. I can't wait to make some of the raw recipes. Raw pad thai?! Yes, please! Thanks again Maud, and if you haven't already had the pleasure of reading Marmalade Umlaut, definitely order some issues. You won't be disappointed!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far! Mine finally began at 3:30 this afternoon. I was bumming about not having Showtime because the Strikeforce fights are on tonight.
Notice anything interesting about tonight's main event? Yup, the main event features a WOMEN'S TITLE FIGHT! The UFC could learn something from this. Dana White (UFC President) has stated that because of the lack of talent in the women's division and the lack of interest (read: not enough potential for big $$ for him) we will pretty much never see women's bouts in the UFC. I think that is a load of bullshit.
Anyway, I think that this fight has the potential of really paving the way for women's MMA (and to make Dana White regret making that statement). I really wanted to watch it and then I found out my bro has Showtime! So tonight I'll be heading over to his house to watch the fights there. I've seen women's MMA before but this fight is going to be awesome because these two broads pretty much hate each other. That makes it so much more fun :)
I hope that you all have a great Saturday night! I'll be back tomorrow with more yummy eats :)
