Look at this picture I found! This was Ryan and my first New Years Eve together back in 2006. I love that dress….clearance from Anthro ’cause it was missing a button!
What a cute bow-tie 😉
Unfortunately last night when I went to bed I rubbed my left eye and felt a migraine coming on. And, yep, it came! 🙁 I slept fine but now have a pounding dull pain behind my eye right now that hopefully will go away soon because this was not worked in the schedule today!
To clear my head I made a Green Monster for my Raw Wednesday breakfast! I’ve heard that bananas are great for when you have migraines so I thought I’d give it a whirl today. Here’s what I used:
- 1 frozen banana
- about 4 cups organic spinach
- 1 scoop raw almond butter
- 1 scoop Sun Warrior
- 1 cup almond milk
Gave it an old fashioned whirl in the Vita Mix and out came this!
I have to admit, I was a little worried about the protein powder addition because my standard Green Monster is just spinach, almond milk and frozen banana. I didn’t know if the protein powder would make it icky but for an extra 15 grams of protein I had to try! The verdict? Total yum. Couldn’t even taste the protein powder and this was just creamy goodness. Now I am chugging hot tea though because I’m a block of ice!
This morning I also made some wheat berries! I love wheat berries because of their chew! Perfect for topping oatmeal and salads, wouldn’t you say? I let the dry berries soak overnight and then this morning I just simmered them for only about 30 minutes and they were perfect!
I wrote a pretty long to-do list last night before bed (maybe this was why I got a migraine?). I’m going to try getting all my work done first thing this morning and then saving the gym until later in the day. I’m switching things around because everyone has their best time to work and I am totally a morning person! When I was in college I scheduled all my writing workshops to be in the morning and always worked on my drafts right when I woke up. My mind is the clearest then and I just love getting everything so I don’t feel guilty baking or plunging into a novel later in the day.
What about you? When is your best time?
Enjoy your last Raw Wednesday—what shall our challenge be NEXT month?! 😉
