Friday Fun

77 comments

Happy Friday to all. :w00t:

Well, last night is what I would like to call a yoga sorta fail.

  • I got the mat out
  • Turned off the lights
  • Lit a candle
  • Turned the video on

 

I was doing good for the first 5 minutes of the video and then the next thing I know it is 2 hours later and I wake up on the yoga mat with Sketchie sleeping on my tummy. :whistle:

I guess my body had other plans for me. It was fabulous.

I also got to see The Office and The Marriage Ref. Eric decided that he wants to bring me on The Marriage Ref to discuss my Crazy Dish Lady status.

I started the morning off with a fresh juice to use up some of the discount veggies.

It contained: 1 lime, 1/2 English cuke, 1/4 lemon, 1 beet, 1/2 tomato, 2 carrots:

Beet + Lime = bliss

This was so energizing!

After doing a bit of paperwork, I set out to the kitchen to throw together Banana Soft Serve VOO.

Blueberry Vanilla Banana Soft Serve VOO

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup regular oats
  • 1/4 scoop Amazing Grass Amazing Meal chocolate powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • Layer with: Banana soft serve
  • Layer with: Blueberry Jam

Directions: Whisk VOO ingredients together with a whisk. Place in fridge overnight. In the morning make the banana soft serve by processing a frozen banana in the food processor for a few minutes, scraping sides as necessary. Now layer the BSS with the VOO and add some blueberry jam.

I ate it in a blueberry jam jar a la Heather. The blueberry jam was really good in this mix! I actually meant to add in a layer of jam in the middle, but I forgot.

It is a major paper work day for me this morning. I am hoping to get out for a swim or run at lunch (Please SUN peak out!) and then we have family arriving this afternoon. Tonight, we are having a big birthday get together to celebrate my father-in-law’s and my birthday. Should be good times.

Have a great Friday!

I’ve fallen asleep during sivasana before. Those two or three minute naps are heavenly.
Beet and lime – can’t believe I never thought of that combination.
Happy Birthday in advance!

Wow, sometimes I feel like falling asleep when I go to hot yoga but I think if I did I’d melt…teehee! :) I so need a yoga practice. I am sleep deprived and stressed this week. I have vowed to put in my regularly scheduled workouts and eating habits back into gear starting next week.

OMG, those oats look so scrumptalicious!!!! I just invested in a food processor today and I will begin using my juicer next week. I can’t wait to try these delicious juices you speak of. I also can’t wait to baptize my new food processor by making the Jiffy Spelt Veggie patties! Woohoo!!!

I like your yoga story–sometimes things like that happen. I have yet to try a soft serve–looks pretty dang good!

Gotta love a relaxing yoga session :-p
I just started following your blog and am really enjoying it. The Soft-Serve is top on my list to try this weekend! There’s this new thing in NYC called Voguert where they blend in bits of fruit and I keep thinking that bits of berries in the Soft Serve would be amazing….

Hi! I have been following your blog for about 3 weeks now and love it :) I do have a question though… do you peel your lime before juicing it? I know I peel my oranges and such, but have never tried using a lime!

Now that is some relaxing yoga! I think I’d call that a success :D
Have fun tonight, girl!

Haha! That’s awesome. I take yoga in classes at my gym so that keeps me more awake, but I know there are times when laying on the mat I definitely feel the urge to drift off. Happy to hear you got the rest you needed.

I got a Breville Juicer for my grad school graduation, and I can’t wait to try some new recipes!! Do you juice the entire beet?

I love that you fell asleep before Yoga. How calming. I guess your body knew what it needed!!

OMG I love that you just fell asleep while doing yoga! I have come SO close but the eyes have never completely closed on me.

I have yet to get into overnight oats because I am slightly confused…do you really just combine the oats, milk, chia seeds, vanilla, powder and put in the fridge over night? That’s it? No cooking? This sounds like a breakfast sent from heaven.

You got it! No cooking :)

HAHA! That’s hilarious. I fall asleep in savasana often. :) If your body needs rest, it needs rest!

I just saw your tweet. Hope everything is okay. :-/

I LOVE the bright color of your veggie juice/smoothie…..now if I can only convince myself to have an all vegetable one with beets :)

I NEVER thought of adding blueberry jam to the banana soft serve mix – I LOVE that idea…MUST try :)

Happy Friday!

Hi, Angela! I made a bread today that I thought you might like. Vegan Coconut Banana bread anyone? I am sure you can tweak it to make it even healthier, but it isn’t bad!
