Current Obsession

One word – Netflix.

Gah! How did I ever live without it?!

The great things about netflix is, yes you get a movie in the mail BUT you have unlimited access to their online database!

Now, they don’t offer all the newest releases online but who cares! You can get those in the mail. This way, you can spend countless number of hours wasting your life away watching the old classics! It’s perfect!

Okay…so I may have a slight problem. I may or may not be spending a large amount of my nights and weekends watching movies’s a phase right? And, it’s winter. It’s not like I could be outside enjoying the weather. So, I fully admit to my obsession and I think it is totally justifiable.

Eats today were, a giant green smoothie (as always). In the mix, a spoonful of each of these lovely guys:

They keep me strong!

It was a pretty basic Tessa-style smoothie – 1/2 cantaloupe and spinach. Todays’ was topped with Peanut Butter Puff’s, coconut butter, honey and some dried cranberries. Of course, finger licking good!

For lunch I had a giant salad topped with a cold asian noodle salad. (I’m working on taking pictures people) Anddd for dinner mashed cauliflower topped with roasted veggies smothered in marinara sauce accompanied by a small glass of red wine. It hit the spot.

Now I will watch this


When Harry Met Sally folks!

Sleep tight!

Coconut Melon Smoothie

It’s a coco-nutty-honey-dewey smoothie!

It all started with this

Before today I had never tackled a whole coconut! I’d always pass them up at the grocery store because they seemed too intimidating. I will admit, it took me a good 10 minutes to break into it but once I found the right knife it was easy! I scrapped the meat into my blender, dumped in all the juice, added 1/2 honeydew melon and blended away.

I couldn’t resist drinking the fresh coconut water.

99% of my morning smoothies either have kale or spinach as their base, but today I opted against that. I only have kale in the fridge and I feared it might over power the delicate coconut. However, after tasting and seeing my light green smoothie in a bowl I decided to stir in some spirulina and calcium powder. On top, I sprinkled it with a few hemp seeds and Gorilla Munch I bought on sale last week.

T’was truly outstanding!

Around noon, I figured I should probably get out of my pajamas so, I went a short jog around the neighborhood and took the pooch on a walk. I just got back from the grocery store where I picked up a couple things for my plans later on. Let’s just say this little guy is my inspiration.
