The Whole Bottle

Morning, friends! Happy Humpday!

I had a pretty hard time sleeping last night, my mind was just whirling about Murphy-Goode! I think I shall have to go to Total Wine today and buy a bottle to calm myself down. lol Last night Ryan told me he thinks I should start “training myself” to drink four glasses of wine every night. Ummmm four?! That’s an entire bottle, I told him. I love wine but I like to be able to remember how it tasted! Hahahaha!

I actually paced around the house for a little bit around 6:00 then decided that was just too early to wake up (did I really used to wake up at 3 am every day??!) so I went back to bed and fell asleep until 8. For breakfast, Ryan and I split a big green monster!


I originally made this to serve one but it ended up being so much that I poured it into two glasses and gave Ryan one. I used 2 pieces frozen cantaloupe, 1/2 banana, 1 cup vanilla soymilk, bout 3-4 cups spinach, 1 scoop Amazing Meal Pom Mango, blueberries, scoop of TJ’s peanut butter and ice. I had mine with a whole wheat blueberry banana muffin! :

    I love the way everything looks in the blender. How do you think the cantaloupe changed the consistency/flavor of the GM?

    You must be soooo excited!!! So would you have to move out to CA if you got the position?

    • jenna

      Yep! For 6 months I would live in Healdsburg and blog on location 🙂


      It was a lot “icy” and had a fruity taste. I really liked it!

    Congrats on the good news. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t insanely jealous. Not only is it a fun gig but Northern California is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I have never been anywhere in the US where food is so appreciated and fresh.

    Four glasses?? Maybe in college (but at that point it would have been Franzia and NOT Murphy-Goode, unfortunately).

    Just started reading your blog, and I think I’m going to have to try a Green Monster! How many calories do you think they have? Do you stay full for a while? I usually do protein powder, frozen fruit and milk, like the spinach idea!

    • jenna
      July 8, 2009 at 3:07 pm


      Well it depends. The one I make in the morning probably has around (give or take) 400 calories and 25 grams of protein. It keeps me full for about 3-4 hours!

    Hoorah for you! I live in Northern California and am sure you would love it here. If you haven’t seen the movie Bottle Shock yet, you should pick it up. It’s about how the wine industry took off in Nor Cal and how a little California winery beat out the top wineries in Paris in an international competition. A really cute movie and great “research” for your potential new career. 😉

    Hi Jenna, NorCal (as we locals refer to it) is awesome. I’ve biked through Healdsburg–its beautiful, quiet, mostly flat, and warm during the day. At night, the valley cools down, so bring some light wraps or shawl. I think you’ll love it. Its not urban at all, and like many other places in NorCal there is a strong hippie vibe among the numerous vineyards and wineries. Mostly one lane roads (with exceptions) and great walking paths.

    Good luck! I think you’d do a great job!

  • Kathryn

    Congratulations on the interview! I live about 20 minutes from Healdsburg… can’t go wrong with ANY of the restaurants that surround the downtown plaza.
    Our favorites:
    Bovolo (they feature “slow food” here) probably my alltime fav place in Healdsburg!

    Flying Goat Coffee Roasters — their morning pastries are to die for!

    Oakville Grocery — I think someone already recommended this, but you HAVE to go here!!

    Your salads always look so good. I’ve never thought of adding hot sauce to salad! I’ll definitely have to try it though because I love hot sauce!
