Happy humpday friends! 🙂
Lucy Dog and I are currently at Nurse Mom’s house ‘holdng down the fort’ haha.
Always a diva…
I have been getting some mild ear pain today as a result of the surgery, which has actually been worse than any throat soreness thus far? Eh, nothing a little pain medicine won’t take care of for now….
For brekkie this morning I whipped up some more “iced oat bran” – strawberry naner style 🙂
If you friends remember, I’m not the biggest fan of straw-ban flavored yogurts, etc. but the natural blend of flavors I am more than okay with. Such a food snob 😉
- 1/3 cup oat bran
- 2/3 cup plain almond milk
- 2/3 cup H20
- 1/2 banana, mushed (mix-in) & sliced (top)
- sliced frozen strawberries
- 1/2 tblsp peanut butter
- 1/2 tblsp coconut oil
- drizzle coconut milk kefir (shocking, I know?)
I think I hold the record for longest oat eating adventure in history haha, this lil’ doozie took me a solid 45 minutes to finish (thank you Mr. Throat) but I definitely get an ‘E’ for Effort!
So nice to get something besides fruit slush up in my system – no hatin’ on smoothies here – but a change up was graciously welcomed 🙂
Once lunch time rolled around I decided it was time to ‘graduate’ to soup!
Keeping it as non-dairy as possible, I made this Broccoli Cheddar Soup with unsweetened Original Almond Breeze 🙂 Who knew? Tasted o’ so good!
Now I’m on the hunt for some more Coconut Milk Ice Cream….
Have you seen me?
…. as I’m trying to pack in as many calories as I can since I just weighed myself and I have apparently dropped about 5lbs since surgery – gross. Now I normally don’t discuss my weight on the blog, bc well, I just don’t think it’s necessary. I like to go off the way my clothes fit vs. fighting with numbers on a scale every day.
But sheesh, I am 5’7″ and normally weigh around 132ish however after my shower today the scale ready 127?! Wtf. Not good 😦 Bye bye muscle, since I know you’ll be the first to go….
Fanatic Dad suggested I start downing chips and chocolate, to which I kindly reminded him that homie don’t play that since that would feel like death to my throat! (Men…)
I decided that massive quantities of coconut milk ice cream protein powder and peanut butter will have to get the job done 😉
Well on tonight’s agenda is round 2 of American Idol (yay!) and a lil’ dinner fixin’ for The Man… look what’s on the menu!
Mmmmm I’ll be drooling over the saute pan 😉 Haha gross, kidding friends.
Oh yes, and most importantly of all, tonight I’ll be announcing the winner of the giveaway!!! Stay tuned…. 🙂
