This morning I had a new fruit in my Green Monster. Can you guess what it was?

Clue: It’s juicy, it’s orange, and it’s large.

Cantaloupe!

I don’t know why I hadn’t tried this in my GM’s before because this was really delicious!

It tasted really fresh with a hint of cantaloupe flavour.

 My Ingredients:

3-4 cups lightly steamed baby organic spinach

1 cup Almond Breeze

1 T flax

1 Organic peppermint tea bag (cut open and contents dumped into blender)

1 cup cantaloupe

 

 

I felt so great after drinking it!

For a mid-morning snack, I had a Larabar:

I made tons of progress on entering my receipts this morning! I am happy to say that all of them are now entered and accounted for. It feels so good to have that done.

I decided that I am going to book a half day at the end of each month to devote to receipt tracking. I tend to put things off if I don’t have it booked on my to-do list!

I fully intended on studying my Food Safety manual, but the sun was too bright and I forgot my shades.

After lunch, I was stuffed! I am still stuffed. It was a wonderful and filling lunch. :)

I couldn’t believe it but I am sore after my run outside yesterday! It is crazy how different running outside vs. indoors is! Luckily, it isn’t my injury spot that is sore, but it is my BUTT/Glutes and my QUADS. I am just going to take it easy today to allow my body to repair. I may do some gardening for my workout since it is nice and warm out today! As well as lots of stretching and more ab work.

Thanks to everyone who voted for Oh She Glows this morning- we are up to 10 votes!! Who hoo!

PS- Last night I updated my ‘Read’ page with more awesome blogs! I added a bunch of fun cake decorating websites.

I hope you are enjoying sunshine wherever you are!

Hi Angela!

Did you use the whole can of salmon and veggie mixture in the pepper or did you set some aside? Looks really good!

I love the colors!

Hey Krista! I used the whole can and all the veggies!

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 17, 2009

Opps I misread your Question- I used about half the mixture in the pepper and half outside on the plate! It depends on the size of the pepper I guess :)

Love the stuffed pepper idea-easy to make veg with some soy “meat” instead! Looks like great weather, cloudy here today.

That recipe looks great for lunch! I wonder if tuna would work as well? Just saved this one too :D !

What a great addition to the green smoothie! I haven’t experimented with the fruit yet… just sticking to bananas so far, but I’m definitely keeping it in mind. Have you ever tried peanut butter instead of flax?

I used grapefruit for the first time this morning in my smoothie, it was pretty good! I’m getting really creative based on all the raw food sites I’ve read…some good…some are not smoothies I would recommend. :)

Lol I’m sitting here eating cantalope (except I call it melon hehe) and last week was well and truly a pepper week for me. Must be something in the air :) I’ve never thought to stuff peppers with salmon or tuna though…thanks for the idea!
