This morning’s Green Monster engulfed my granola! <—- say that 10x fast. :mrgreen:

Going, going, gone. 

Until it settled on the bottom, making a nice and crunchy surprise at the end.  It reminded me of  when I was small and enjoyed eating raw oats with milk and sugar. :mrgreen:

It was nice being able to eat lunch at home today!  I made a mix of some of my favorite foods, which started with 1/2 a sweet potato topped with about a tablespoon of chunky peanut butter (if you’ve  never tried this combination, you simply must…it sounds strange but totally works.)

I included some greens in my lunch, via salad.

  • mesculin
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1/2 carrot
  • cauliflower
  • celery

I wanted something light and zingy on top of my salad and went with some Red Wine Vinegar.  Trader Joe’s makes a pretty nice one, and it’s also super cheap.  I like how fresh and “tart” it is.

There was also some sweetness in my midday meal!  In addition to adding the sweet factor, oranges are great for helping you absorb vegatarian sources of iron (aka, nonheme iron) since they’re packed with vitamin C (vitamin C=better iron absorption.)

I fancied up my water with a slice of lemon. :mrgreen:

Off to work on my paper for Nutrition Problems in the US before my phone meeting with one of my professors!

  1. What blender do you use to make your smoothie? I don’t know if my “Bella Cucina” (similar to Magic Bullet) will be able to blend the ice and spinach in the same way it looks in the picture… (is blends frozen berries though!)…

    Oh, and the sweet potato-peanut butter combo looks interesting… I’ll have to try it soon 🙂
