Hello there :)
I hope you had a great start to your week. I am truckin’ along getting ready for the big launch of the variety packs and coupons tomorrow morning at 10am EST! It has been rush, rush, rush all day! Luckily my green monster gave me a huge boost of energy this morning (I don’t just say that it really does!).
Lunch was deelish…
I had two In A Jiffy Spelt Veggie Burgers as the ‘bun’ with tomato paste and red roasted pepper hummus smooshed in between.
Basically the best tasting thing imaginable.
It’s totally normal to eat 4 veggie burger patties for lunch, right? ;) Thought so…
Dinner was also in a jiffy!
Golden Sweet Potato Soup
- 1 extra large Yukon gold potato, chopped
- 1 extra large sweet potato, chopped
- 1.5-2 cups non-dairy milk
- 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
- 1/2 tsp basil
- 1/2 tsp parsley
- 1/2 clove minced garlic
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp cashew butter (optional)
Directions: Boil potatoes until soft, about 10 minutes. I didn’t even bother peeling the potatoes, but you can if you wish. Throw all ingredients, including boiled potatoes, into the blender and puree. Serve immediately and heat if necessary. Garnish with sunflower seeds. Serves 2-3.
It was quite delicious in a very simple sort of way. You might want to add more seasonings to spice it up a bit.
Eric tried his best to pretend to like it. He really, really did give his best performance.
I was secretly smirking out of the corner of my eye because he thought he was fooling me, but I can read him like a book.
Just for fun, I said ever-so-innocently, ‘So what do you think?’
I knew instantly he didn’t like it. I saw his lip quiver and the fear in his eyes with each tiny spoonful.
After about 10 minutes, he finally spoke the truth…
He hated the texture!!!!!!!!!!!!! bahahah. I knew it all along.
He said, ‘As far as textures go, this has to be one of the worst…’ lol.
What a guy, what a guy…and I love him anyways.
We had toast with Earth Balance margarine to go with it. Mmmm.
After dinner we were rushing to beat the clock! We decided to go on a bike ride tonight in lieu of our swim. We had to get out there before sunset!
Meet my mountain bike…a 3 year old Fuji Boulevard:
What a beast!
My helmet might have belonged to a 7 year old girl in its’ previous life.
Embarrassing, isn’t it?
I believe I will be investing in a new one ASAP!
Eric’s bike is a Norco Wolverine:
We had a great ride!
- A hilly 4.66 miles
- Avg pace: 9.8 m/hr
- Time: 28:34 mins.
And saw a nice sunset:
It was COLD though. The weather is still not warm enough for nighttime bike rides. I think it was a windy 7C when we went out! Brrrr. I was freezing.

Tonight’s question: Are you good at detecting when your significant other (or friend/family member) is lying to you?
I had training in my criminal psychology course. We learned all the signs that liars give via their body language. It was fun. I am quite good at detecting a lie in the act! I can read Eric like a book. ;)
I need to get back to 24!!!
