So you’ll never believe what happened yesterday morning. Okay, you will. I woke up at 6:00 and hit the gym BEFORE work. I did 20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill (2 minutes walking, 2 running, etc..) followed by some biceps and triceps. I deserved a reward, like…
Throughout the morning I continued to sell my labour to my parents and they continued to buy it one hour at a time.
Amy's Burrito on Weeds
From work I went straight to Walmart to get more Peanut Butter and Raw Almond Butter because God forbid I ever run out. If I were smart I would let it run out so I stopped eating it straight from the jar, but as per usual fun wins out over intelligence. That statement also sums up my University career. Class? No, let’s go for beer in the campus bar instead. Do you like beer? No, but it sounds good and looks cool.
From Walmart I went to Superstore for broccoli and Salmon. A mature grownup might make a grocery list, meal plan a little and do all their shopping on a Sunday so they’re set for the week. I on the other hand, would rather go to the grocery store every day for one or two things. As I was walking back to my car, salmon and broccoli in one hand, keys in the other, I pressed the unlock button. It just so happened that as I pressed mine the man walking ahead of me pressed his. Sure enough he looked at my car in astonishment as if he had just magically unlocked it with his keys. Yes sir, YOUR keyless entry just unlocked MY car. Why stop here? Let’s try more cars; you must have the universal keyless entry.
When I got home and went to put the Peanut Butter away I realized that I actually still had an unopened jar (and a few almost empty’s). It was at this very moment, when I was unloading my 2 new jars of Peanut Butter and 2 new Jars of Almond butter into the “nut butter cupboard” that I felt a sense of gluttony. If a hurricane or tidal wave should ever make its way over 3 dry oceanless provinces and trap me in the Condo Castle for a month, I will be fine. I have nut butters.
I also failed to mention I picked up a few extra’s at both places..
After learning about what goes into most makeup brands I decided to pick up some Burts Bee's cleanser and face serum. Someone better not come forward now, after I spent 40 dollars of these two bottles, and tell me about the harsh treatment of bee's. Burt should consider adding, "no bee's were abused in the making of this product" to the back of the box. Perhaps he could also write, "In exchange of the bee's royal jelly we supplied them with a first class bee hive and health benefits."
Just like I promised, here is the a replica of my unpictured lunch from the day before..
Steamed Broccoli as the base.
Topped with Miracle Noodles and a block of Tempeh. I tossed the noodles and the Tempeh into a pot on low and mixed in 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast and free handed some Garlic Powder and Salt. SO good.
I made this mornings cookie after supper and decided to try adding protein powder. Since I only wanted to add half a serving I pulled out that nifty scale I borrowed (which i'm sure they want back by now) from work. Since I was already weighing things out I figured why not weigh my oatmeal and see how close to the actual "serving" size it is. I learned three things during all of this. One, protein powder in my cookie is gross so I had to start over. Two, 40 grams of Oatmeal is actual 1/3 a cup not 1/2 of a cup like I thought. And three, I'm eating a full serving and 1/4 in my cookie everyday. My oatmeal is fat. I glanced over at my Almond Butter and immediately shut that down, I do NOT want to know. Turns out the scale sucks in the bathroom and the kitchen.
Before calling it a night I had a Tbsp (at least) of Almond Butter and about 2 cups of these...
I dipped them in Earth Balance (by dip I mean scrapped the top of the earth balance with each individual corn puff). You can’t judge until you’ve tried it. It tasted like popcorn. You would eat it too.
