Butter Me Up
Hi pooks! Tuesday was the most karmically bizarre day I’ve had in a long time. It was peculiar for everyone in my close circle, and I’m honestly drained right now (12:05am). Therefore, I’ma focus on what rarely fails me: good eats.
Monday night, after I posted, I cooled down with:
Turtle Mountain’s coconut milk ice cream is much better, but I can’t hate on anything cookie-dough related. And it was vegan and gluten-free!
This morning, I had some comfort in a bowl:
In the bowl: 1/3 C oats, 1 C water, 1/2 banana, cinnamon, stevia and crunchy peanut butter. Consumed with several cups of:
Because I had class 10am to 12pm, 1 to 3 and 3 to 4:30, I packed my lunch for the road:
The wrap was amaze. Layered with spicy hummus, Tofutti cream cheese, sweet n’ spicy mustard and spinach, it was the highlight of the afternoon:
Wait, that’s not true. This was the highlight of my afternoon:
It’s all outta love, boo!
Afternoon classes were fine. I can already tell my motivation is fading faster than Larry David’s hairline. (I adore Larry.)
I made it back to the casa around 4ish and crashed on the bed with a snacklette:
In efforts not to eat a bag of peanut butter pretzels in two days (my usual rate), I portioned them out in baggies. Felt a little too OCD for me.
Not two hours later, I was chowing on dinner:
In the mix: spinach, cucumber, orange pepper, broccoli, tofu, hummus and sweet n’ spicy mustard. I’m loving non-dressings as dressings right now. A few minutes after eating the salad, I noshed on a piece of Ezekiel bread with Tofutti cream cheese, cinnamon and stevia. It was lovely.
At 8:10, I had a capella practice. I can honestly say that this was the only point in my day where I felt peaceful. Part of what I love so much about singing and music is that my brain stops thinking about anything else. It’s just me, the notes, the flow, the lyrics, the blend. It’s pure in its creation, that of making a sound, and it hushes anything else that’s been plaguing my mind. Even if it’s only for a 60 minutes, I can feel peaceful for that time.
I headed to Muffin’s house after practice to visit. While there, I picked up some things she’d been holding for me:
I had so many samples from Expo West that VegNews had to mail ’em to me. Thank you! And the Justin’s Nut Butter crew sent me that amazing package while I was on break. (I guess that’s what you get for posting a pic of the creator’s badunk on the Web. Thanks, Justin!) Muffin picked these up from my house while I was still in Cinci. I cannot wait to SnackFace my way through it all.
I’m hoping to wake up tomorrow and for the day’s energy to be much different from today’s. It will be, I feel it.
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: What activity/practice/what have you brings you peace?
