My Body Is a Wonderland
What up, boos? Oh don’t you worry about that title. I’m not going to show you a picture of me in a bikini or anything. I’m merely saying that my body is a wonder in that…I feel FABULOUS again! What, what! The magic combination: plenty of fruits and veggies and Puffins, no caffeine, no running, lots of tea and water and love. Seriously, I no longer feel like the bottom of a shoe. I feel like a beautiful, shining Manolo Blahnik.
This morning, I sprang out of bed and immediately put on a sports bra I’d worn twice before and my other running gear. The run felt so good that I ran for 35 minutes straight, which I realize isn’t that incredible compared to some, but for me it’s bossy. This body is a wonderland, furreal. I ran longer than normal, distance-wise, and returned earlier than usual. Killah.
Naturally, the tum was starving after I showered. Breakfast was a scrumptious repeat:
I skipped into the office and my usual chattiness and laughter and joy returned. Thank goodness, because I had a billion things to do today! One of the pieces I had to fact check was a book review, so I got to look at some incredible new vegan books. If you don’t have it yet, buy The Vegan Scoop! If I had an ice cream maker, I’d be all over that.
At 11ish I broke for some carrots with mustard and BBQ sauce. I was ravenous by lunch time, which was delicious, but a little light:
Lunch was lovely and I had one more phyllo cup than pictured. After lunch, though, came a sweet delicacy made by a new staffer, Laura. VegNews recently acquired VegWeb, and she is now running that. Anyway, she made vegan peanut butter chocolate chocolate chip with peanut brittle ice cream. RIDICULOUS! It was a teeny serving, and lemme tell ya, I could have eaten bowls and bowls.
It was back to business after lunch, and I wrote, edited, fact-checked and even modeled. Please click over to check out a funny picture of me and to check out the bomb packages we get in the office every single day!
For an even more hilarious picture, click here to see my official blurb on the VegNews site! AHH!!!!! I’m beyond excited to be on the site, but that picture is so funny! It’s from my freshman year in college and I was modeling for a student. Bahaha!
We stayed at work until 6:20 pm, and I was so hungry I had what felt like a migraine. Thankfully, it was a hunger headache that was helped with this:
On the plate: spinach, carrots, broccoli, green beans, celery, balls, chickenless chicken, sesame sticks, pineapple salsa, hummus and balsamic vinaigrette. So scrumptious, but I needed somethin’ else after, thus I ate half a pita.
I went on a whee adventure to get $5 worth of quarters for laundry and transportation. I’ve never needed so many quarters in my life! I also tried to stop by the Asian supermarket for super cheap kabocha, but it closed at 7:30 pm and I got there at 7:34. Bummer!
I came home, took over my laundry and then had dessert:
Multiply that by two and add a few Puffins and you’ll get what I really ate 🙂 And as I’ve been typing I’ve been eating pita chip crumbs. Yessss.
And because I know he’s reading, I just want to say Happy Fathers Day AGAIN! I know, I know, it’s like three/four days later, but I say that phone call was not enough. Popsicle, I won’t make you cry this year, but I just want to say thank you, as I owe you everything in the world, and thank you for loving me more than I could ever know. Look at my adorable Popsicle:
I love you, DaddyPants! Awww looking through family pictures makes me miss everyone so much!
Which is why I’m moving right on to remind anyone in the San Fran area that tomorrow night it’s time to get your Vegan Drank on! Seriously, Martuni’s, 6-8 pm, be there.
I just re-read this post and to recap how loony I am, we went from body as a wonderland to new books to light food to ice cream to ridic pictures of me to headache to dinner to quarters to Popsicle to drankin’. Just imagine what it’s like to be inside this head. Scary, huh? Well, now it’s time to put my laundry in the drier!
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: What do you make of the raw food trend???
I’m fascinated, but think some of it’s kind of gaggy. I know I have a certain tolerance for only so much raw food. I also can’t see myself making rice and pasta out of cauliflower and zucchini. Yes, this works for some people, but I love me my grains! Please, share what you think!
