VeganMoFo III: Humpty Dance Hump Day


So it's Wednesday and this week seems to be dragging on.  I'm not just saying that because I can't wait for budget week.  Nope, not at all.  Not sure, but I think the caffeine I had earlier today is making me nauseated.  I'm very sensitive to it because I rarely have anything with caffeine.  Honestly, I think the world is a much safer place when I'm not amped up.  I'm a bit crazy to begin with and I might scare the children.

Today was a great, happy, sunshiny day.  I am wearing hoodies to class every morning.  Hoodies!  Last week it was all schweaty ballz out and now it's crisp...even in the sun.  But I am longing for the cold, wet winters of San Antonio.  Any rain at all will do.  There is nothing like snuggling in the blankets with the puppies as rain pours outside.  They keep telling me that we should expect thunderstorms, but it's the desert.  I've seen it rain once.  I never realized how much I loved the rain until now.  It's the little things, people.


Breakfast: 2 pieces of celery, peanut butter w/ carob powder and agave, a nectarine, and English breakfast tea w/ agave and almond milk
Lunch: 2 slices pizza, spinach and pear salad w/ pecans and agave mustard dressing
Snack: half of a green smoothie (1/2 pear, handful of spinach, a leaf of red chard, and pepitas)
Snack(not pictured): half of a green smoothie and 1 small slice of pizza
Dinner: rice cake w/ peanut butter and raisins, an apple, bite of carrot, and apple cinnamon herbal tea

Water-5 cups
Exercise-Kickboxing
Notes-I couldn't finish eating dinner because I felt so sick.  So I drank some herbal tea to calm my stomach (as I'm out of ginger).  Today was a better food day.  I find it harder to drink enough water when I have other liquids, though.  I'm also not sure that I'm getting enough sleep, so I'm gonna work on that right about...now.

Oh, and one more thing:

Your pizza looks so much better than the vegan pizza I attempted last night (see photo). Tell me your secret! And get some sleep!

you know i'm a newbie, so pardon some of the questions. but what is the case with all these "green drinks" i'm seeing ev-ry-where? I'm starting to virtually taste the combos as I read them. the thought of spinach/pear/pepita is about to make me get up, go to the market, and then give my blender a workout. my stomach is feeling a bit unhappy also. a smoothie sounds like it might set me right.

And now that song will be stuck in my head ALL day! Hahaha! That was a throw-back though!

That green smoothie looks and sounds good. Was is sweet at all? I might try that combination!

I love that food collage!

Faith-Green smoothies are just a way to incorporate leafy greens into the diet. I think they have to be at least 40% greens to be called a green smoothie. What evs. I like them because they are super filling and easier than making food.

Lisa Marie-This one wasn't too sweet. I contemplated adding banana...and totally should have done so.

I am so impressed with your healthy eating! I've been trying to exercise and eat better this week, so this post was right up my alley.

digital underground! yes!

Wow! Your eating is so healthy I am envious! I know what you mean about rain and puppies, me and the beagles will spend entire rainy weekends snuggling.

The Humpty Dance is probably one of my favorite songs of all time. I tried to do it at karaoke last Christmas & it was the most fun I ever had doing karaoke because everyone came and danced around me. It turned out that I didn't know all the words though like I thought I did so that was kind of a disaster.

Are you planning to move back to Texas some day?

I love rice cakes with peanut butter. Now I'll have to add some rasins!

Looks like a great food day!

Monique a.k.a. Mo said...

Lazysmurf, not for awhile I think. It depends on how much worse the California job market/economy gets. My family is there so I will definitely visit and do it often.

swellvegan said...

Yum! I wish every meal I ate in the course of a day looked that gorgeous.

Ms. T (of haiku tofu) said...

whereabouts are you from in Texas, Mo? I want to meet some Texas vegans! i only know 2 or 3.

Mary said...

I also love the food collage. I want to learn how to do that. Also, pepitas in a smoothie? Yes!!

chow vegan said...

That looks like a good day of eating! I wish my day was like that. :-) Good night, get some sleep!

Monique a.k.a. Mo said...

Ms. T, I'm from San Antonio. I'm currently living in Coachella, CA and I miss Texas so very much.
