I’m Not Green TEAsing You…This Is Mashed Up!

This post involves green food.

Green tea.

Tea in general.

And a flop of an attempt at lunch – which turned into a mash up.

This morning, a good ol’ fashioned toasted toast with peanut butter was calling my name.

I spread some coconut butter on top as well. It melted into a peanut buttery coconut goodness.

The green smoothie gods were also calling my name. I simply needed a smoothie, more specifically, a green one!

1/2 ripe frozen banana, 1/4 cup frozen berries, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder,1 cup non-dairy milk, and a HUGE handful of spinach. Blend away!!

These smoothies are so good!!

I gobbled this one down in two seconds. 😦

I want to be one of those people who can drink/eat slowly, but I really don’t think it’s possible. Especially when you put a green smoothie in front of me.

Or this cocktail:

Last night I went to my friend Brittany’s birthday dinner celebration. (Happy Birthday girlie!) We went to a very yummy restaurant with really cool/original cocktails.

As soon as I saw the ingredients in this one, I knew I had to have it!

Tequila AND tea?!? YES please. And Thank You. This was SO good!

The food was also great. I had:

Roasted beet salad, with pear, goat cheese, and beet chips!

Topped with a soft boiled egg! Hail to that liquid yellow center!

The night was filled with good food, yummy cocktails, and great company!

Now onto a not so successful food adventure.

My lunch.

It tasted really good, but was definitely NOT what I was going for. I attempted to make a quinoa/butternut squash pizza crust- HA, that ended up being a joke. It didn’t work! I have made a quinoa crusts before, but I guess the addition of the butternut squash didn’t work. So anyways, I baked the “crust” a little bit, but it was mush. Tasty mush. I added my pizza toppings in the mush crust and baked that all for 15 minutes.

I call this my Pizza Mash Up!

Put a little spinach underneath (because spinach for breakfast and lunch is good for you) 🙂

Now I am sipping on some green tea and nibbling on dark chocolate!

I can’t believe it’s already Friday! The weeks are flying by!

To start the weekend off on the right (or left) foot.. Here’s one of my favorite really lame hilarious jokes of all time.

I read it in a magazine a long time ago, and it has never left my mind.

Here it goes!:

Snake 1: Are we poisonous?

Snake 2: I don’t know, why?

Snake 1: I just bit my lip….

Makes me smile 🙂 every time!

Do you have any favorite jokes? Or any memorable yummy tasting food flops?

Have a great friday!!

  1. We JUST had green smoothies for our afternoon snack (I’m a mom to 2). Ours had bananas, strawberries, blueberries, celery, carrots, and spinach, plus a pack of protein powder and a drizzle of maple syrup. Beyond yummy! I agree – they absolutely cannot be consumed slowly. 🙂 Have a great weekend…enjoyed the post! 🙂

    Ellie…I used to drink smoothies like the green one. I put in tons of spinach, ice cubes (to make it cold and frothy) and a bananna and almond butter. The almond butter gives it a really good flavour and then I would put in some protein powder…very healthy!

    Ellie…I just bought Pumpkin Protein Powder this afternoon…I can’t wait to let you know how it tastes in smoothies. I want to start drinking smoothies because it is the quickest way to have so many vitamins all at once and you can make it taste really good!
