Day four

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
(sing along now)

What a day. I hate days where all I do is run from one place to another, back to the first, on to the third. Ad nauseum. I am totally wiped. But before I go to bed I have to blog and watch "Big Fish" with my son. I love that movie and can't believe he hasn't seen it. Don't know how that one got by me. If you haven't watched it yet, then do so, it's a fun one :)

This was my breakfast this morning: a bowl of whole oats with wild blueberries, 1/3 a banana, a few walnuts, a drop or two of agave nectar and a splash of soy milk. It was absolutely delicious.

Lunch was ridiculous. Because I was busy doing all of that to-ing and fro-ing, I didn't get any. I did have half of a cacao crunch bar in my purse from last weekend before this project began. I checked the ingredient list: sprouted buckwheat (wheat free), sprouted sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, sprouted quinoa, cacao powder, agave nectar, himalayan salt and love. There actually is a little heart after the end! Cute eh? So it was all vegan and organic so okay...but cacao does contain caffeine. I decided to just suck it up.

Before this project I would have just stopped at whatever restaurant was handy. Tim's, Subway, Wendy's. Now it feels like everything is a minefield and nothing is an option. I need to talk to my vegan/gluten free cousin Melanie, to get her input and some ideas on what is available out there.

When I got home I had a glass of vegetable juice and a few organic corn chips. For dinner I made brown rice and a vegetable and tofu stir fry. It was pretty yummy. The vegetables I used were asparagus, red, yellow and orange peppers, garlic, carrots and mushrooms.

So that's it for me for today. Not sure if Madison will have anything to say since she is at a friend's house and I haven't really seen her all day. I'm going to watch "Big Fish" now.

Until tomorrow!



  1. Carolyn, I see so many of the same threads in our lives. Nursing and meditation, falling off the yoga practice, healthy eating (been a vegetarian for 25 years; eating vegan can be tough!)... May this cleanse get you where you want to be. Thanks so much for stopping by, and commenting!

  2. What a coincidence! My sister was talking to my son today and it came out that he had never seen "Big Fish" and she said YOU HAVE TO SEE IT! (I haven't seen it either).
