Favourite Colours

Breakfast and lunch ended up featuring my two favourite colours โ€“ green & brown! Totally unintentional of course.

I decided to spare you all from another morning of cereal, and whizzed up a smoothie ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp crunch peanut butter (all out of smooth!)
  • 1/3 cup oats, pre-whizzed
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • skim milk (I never measure)

Tall glass of chocolatey goodness to start Payday Friday!

Of course, only after Iโ€™d made my smoothie, I realized I should have tried out those Sequel Naturals Vega Smoothie Infusions instead of the normal protein powder. Oops! Oh well, next time.

As it was Payday Friday, I checked my account to make sure I had been paid, and saw that I had WAY more money that I should. Turns out my landlords had forgot to cash my rent cheque from June 1st! They actually came downstairs a few minutes ago to apologize for it. Itโ€™s a good thing I have a running total in my head of what Iโ€™m allowed to spend so that all my bills are always covered โ€“ otherwise I could have spent that money. Oh well, it was nice to pretend I was rich for the day ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since breakfast featured favourite colour #1 โ€“ brown, obviously lunch featured colour #2 โ€“ green.

It started with a salad base of romaine lettuce and coleslaw mix.

Then I went rummaging for salad toppings โ€“ Israeli couscous, chickpeas, cucumber, celery, green onion, avocado, and almond slivers.

One of the only pops of colour from my lunch โ€“ dried apricots and craisins.

I rounded lunch out with some corn thins & Laughing Cow, a kiwi, and Annieโ€™s Honey Mustard Dressing for the ensalada.

I donโ€™t know if you can tell from the photo, but that turned out to be one GARGANTUAN salad. Seriously, I wish I could have taken a photo of it assembled at work. I didnโ€™t finish it โ€“ I had it at my desk, and picked at it over 2+ hours. Partially because I wasnโ€™t super hungry, and partially because I started to get bored with salad. Thatโ€™s why I donโ€™t normally make huge salads, as I get bored with them and then the lettuce gets wilty, and I HATE wilty lettuce. I think I ended up tossing 1/4 of the salad, and only ate 2 1/2 of the corn thins. I hate to toss food, but salad just doesnโ€™t keep. Iโ€™m sure the fruit flies enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜‰

And now Iโ€™m at home, relaxing in my pjโ€™s, watching the news and working up the motivation to get dinner. So glad itโ€™s the weekend! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Oh yeah, love the colors! Your salad looks and sounds great. I love salads with lots of CRUNCH!

    Oh, and don’t you hate it when you think you have more money than you really do? Ugh, that kind of stuff happens to me all the time. I can’t wait until the day I have so much money in my account that I don’t have to check it everyday to make sure I can make purchases!!

    I find that really big salads give me a grumbly belly sometimes. Your toppings sure did look tasty!

    Yay for payday Friday’s!

    Those smoothie infusions are pretty much the only Vega product worth trying in my opinion–so much tastier than the meal replacement powders. Your smoothie looks totally tasty!

    MMM! Your smoothie looks great and includes my fave colors TOO!
    I love how you Canadians spell words like cheque. Oh la la!

    Wilty lettuce is like (forgive me in advance for this comparison) boogers. Honestly, slimy and gross! Sorry you had to have that!!

    Green is my favorite food color. There aren’t too many pink foods to eat (which is my favorite color color). haha
