We’ve been spending time at my mom’s on the weekends so we can get little Miso used to being here. He has been loving it. My mom has a small dog and they play non-stop. Here he is sleeping after some hard core playing. :)
I’m super happy because I have one of my best Internet buddies coming to visit little ol’ me! We met, maybe 2 years ago(?), online and we’ve labeled ourselves as soul sistas because we have so much in common. In fact, when I was blonde, we looked like actual sisters. You might know her, she calls herself Girl On Raw. She arrives next weekend. I’m taking her for a fabulous raw lunch, then to Whole Foods for a little shoppy-shop, and then we’re heading to my mom’s to stay the night. I think (if I have the energy) I’ll make her one of my newest recipes Ginger Spice Carrot Cake (to live for!), which will be featured in my new book.
~ 2 cups Teeccino with coconut milk
~ 3 cups Organic Green Smoothie: water, bananas, lemon juice, ginger, spinach (the vitamin C in the ginger and lemon juice help the body to better assimilate the iron in the spinach)
~ Double serving Sun Warrior Brown Rice Protein Shake (getting baby some extra protein)
~ Heirloom lettuce salad with broccoli and carrots topped with Sweet Capri Dressing (my parents love this dressing)
~ Candy Bites (raw)
~ Cashew butter
~ For dinner, I’m making everyone my Vegan Chicken Ratatouille that we’ll have with big salads
~ Dessert? If I’m still hungry… bananas and cashew butter drizzled with raw chocolate sauce – OK, even if I’m not hungry, I suspect I’ll still have this. lol
On another good note… my back has improved! I still have some problems with it (low back pain from pregnancy), but my rockin’ midwife pressed on it and alleviated a lot of the pain so I’ve been having my mom do it for me, too. It’s made so much of a difference. I’ve even been able to get some walking back into my days. Yay!
