I’ve had a lot of readers ask how many times they can vote and whatnot, and truth be told, I’m not 100% sure how that works. I don’t think that they necessarily pick the person with the most votes to come out for an interview, but I know they must LOOK at that and it must have some sort of factor in the decision. Who knows! If it is meant to be it’ll be and they close applications on June 1st so I have until then to really rack in the votes! Love you guys! 🙂
This afternoon I made my ritual 2:30 juice using all of the below—
I love adding cucumber because it adds a nice bit of coolness to the juice! This was yummy beet, apple, ginger, celery and cuc juice. Look at how pretty—
I swear drinking whole fruit & veggie juice every day that I make myself has really helped to clear up my skin! Lately, my skin has been “glowing” and I really give all the credit to the juice since the rest of my diet is the same as it always has been. Who knows? Beet juice might be the magical cure all.
My afternoon was this new beauty of a bar that I bought for one of these Raw Wednesdays—
I couldn’t wait to try it! It sounded so amazing and, lo and behold, it was AWESOME! I’ve never seen this bar before so I can’t tell you where exactly you can find it, but if you do see it then I definitely recommend picking one up. Its a raw bar made from coconut, chia seeds and almond butter and I loved the little crunch of the chia and the coolness of the coconut. It contained 220 calories, 14 grams of (healthy) fat and 7 grams of protein! I need to go and hunt down some more of these now because I think I might have an addiction…..
And then for dinner my dad and I went out for Vietnamese food—my favorite! I ordered a rice noodle bowl with lemongrass tofu on it and it was spendid:
Which I promptly covered in sriracha—
It was delicious. My dad ordered the same thing but with grilled shrimp and he loved it as well
And then afterwards we walked next door to D’Lite for a little froyo treat.
I had a small pistachio with chocolate chips…it was yummy!
Sadly, and as we all probably know, when it rains it pours and my mom had to fly up to Wisconsin this morning because her father (my grandpa) is really not doing well at all. Its a very scary situation and he has major surgery tomorrow morning so please keep our family in your prayers…..once again. Even though life is sort of sucking right now I do have 100% faith that everything will be okay in the end. Because really, in the end, faith is all we have and I’ve gotta cling to something during this tragic time.
When I got home I sipped on a glass of red wine while blogging 🙂
I’m off—see you in the morn’! But first……...head over to Gena’s blog to enter in our first Raw Wednesday giveaway!! =)
