I still like healthy things.
I know everyone here thinks that I went three sheets to the wind last year, threw out my spinach and shouted “give me pork or die!!!” to the heavens. And I can see how one might infer that from what I make on the blog. It’s my passion to make the drool-worthy treats you see on the blog (like it’s a cake decorator’s passion to decorate beautiful wedding cakes)….but in reality, I still eat pretty healthy in my day to day life.
Not saying I don’t try each and every treat you see. I do. But I think eating all those cupcakes makes me crave hummus even more, you feel me?
Can I pause right now though and tell you just how amazing that pulled pork turned out to be last night? A reader just emailed me to ask me “how much of the fat do I take off the pork butt before making sandwiches”. My answer? Was that really an option? Do people really strip off the fat from their pork butts before eating? Isn’t that the whole point in enjoying a succulent, juicy pulled pork sandwich?
The question bewildered me.
But back to healthy!
Here are two “healthy” things I’m digging now:
Sweet heavens. I tried the Barre3 workout yesterday (via dvd) for the first time and this morning I hurt in places one should never feel pain.
Barre3 is a fusion of ballet barre, yoga and pilates designed to give you a challenging, yet uplifting, full body workout. If you don’t have a studio near you (which you probably don’t seeing as Barre3 is a relatively new thing and studios are still limited), I highly recommend checking out the dvd.
Or taking a pilgrimage to Portland (for a number of reasons).
Hey, remember this stuff? Well, guess what? I still kinda like it. Especially the new vanilla chai infusion flavor. It’s cinnamon-y and vanilla-y and I like to make creamy banana smoothies with it now that the weather is getting warmer and I’ve eaten all the cinnamon raisin bagels in Trader Joe’s.
Drinking one of those pretty much gives you a hall pass to eating all the bacon you like.
You want more healthy? Try this. Then eat a cupcake and stop your whining.
