I ended up passing out around 9:45 last night and stayed in bed until 9am. Which was really 8 am. But it felt so great to sleep.
A waffle & egg sandwich was on my mind for breakfast, but I needed some veggies too since I got a total of zero vegetables that weren’t in french fry form yesterday. I toasted two Vans waffles and put microwaved egg whites and a drizzle of maple syrup in between. Since I gave up chocolate for Lent, my usual green monster made with chocolate Amazing Grass was a no-go. I remembered I still had a berry flavored sample packet the company sent me with my last order, so I decided to switch up my recipe a bit.
For my Cherry Berry Green Monster I used:
- a bunch of raw spinach
- 1 cup soymilk
- 1 packet berry flavored Amazing Grass
- 1/2 frozen banana
- a bunch of frozen cherries
- ice & a wee bit of xantham gum for a creamy texture
Hit the spot!
On the agenda for the morning was a special Mass for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee at a church downtown. After Mass my dad showed me this beautiful cross. Turns out my parents’ names are on a plaque because he and many others donated to have this cross built. It is in honor of the Irish of St. Louis that helped build the city.
I didn’t have many plans for the afternoon but randomly went on a cleaning spree. So far my bedroom and bathroom have been wiped down and dusted and sheets are in the dryer. I broke for lunch, but have plans for vacuuming, mopping, and more laundry after this post is up.
Lunch was a wrap made with a combo of hummus and pasta sauce, sliced green pepper, chopped tomato, and two TJ’s meatless meatballs.
To go with it I had a whole sweet potato sliced, topped with cinnamon, and baked at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I believe Kailey calls these “chu chu chu cheetahhhs”! I also had a few more green pepper slices and an apple for dessert.
Time to get back to work! I think my post-cleaning reward will be finally watching Shawshank Redemption and baking a new batch of healthy muffins. LOVE Sundays!
