Quick Post (While in Class)

22 Aug

Hey guys! Quick post here… I’m actually sitting in class, not paying attention (already… bad sign!)

Just wanted to check in because I may not have too much time for blogging today– a 12 hour day is like that I guess!

Here’s what I wore today for my first day of school 😉

Drinking (and running) My Feelings

21 Aug

and not even the fun kind!

I finally made that smoothie:

the materials.

before the whirl

nearly ready to slurp!

ready to downnnn

There’s the final (giant) bowl, topped with raw oats and some TJ’s twigs.

Very soon after I finished, I had to put on some real clothes

… and drop the Hubs off at the airport. *sniff*. He’s not coming back to see me for nearly two weeks. I’m a sad panda right now.

To make me feel better, he ordered me to go to my Happy Place (or one of them, at least)– Whole Foods!!!

So I popped on over and immediately bought myself this guy to keep my company as I completed a little retail therapy:

I will take your pain awayyy!

A fresh juice with carrot, apple, beet, spinach, cucumber, celery + spirulina. The spirulina was a new thing for me– I expected some kind of seaweed taste for some reason, but all it seemed to do was darken up the color of the juice. No taste that I could discern, at least with all the other juice in there!

I bagged up some bulk bin chia seeds and nutritional yeast (sooo glad to have these things back in the bulk bins!), and quickly made my way over to the good stuff. But not before getting distracted by this:

sample? don't mind if I do.

The hot food/ salad bar is where it’s at, yo. I grabbed up some lunch and dinner and then drove home.

Before digging in, I stupidly decided to fit in a teeny bit of cardio. Stupidly because I decided to run at the hottest time of the day, and being a Seattle girl through-and-through, I am highly sensitive to the warm weather.

Only got through about a mile and a half before calling it quits.

shweaty beast.

Food was delayed yet again for a MUCH needed shower, and then I promptly dug into my newly-acquired goods:

YUM.

.. a brown rice cucumber avocado roll, followed by a ginormous and delicious peach.

I would tunnel in and fly to New York on you, peach.

That’s all for now. I’m about to curl up on the couch and watch some Netflix and procrastinate on doing anything related to school prep. 🙂 Have a good night!!

Question for you:

Did you catch the movie/book reference on that last pic? 😉

Frolic in the Park and Veggie Thai Lunch

20 Aug

After I had breakfast, I whipped up a little somethin’ somethin’ for the Hubs

I made a delicious scramble that photographed awfully.

We then laced up our shoes and headed on walk for the park!

quack.

king of the rock.

After encountering the various wildlife (not caught on camera: tadpoles, giant flying beetles, lizards great and small, chipmunks, millions of cute doggies), we walked home. The stroll was a little over a 5k distance and took us about an hour. I worked up quite the sweat in the heat!

ready for a shower!

and an appetite!

mmm fruit 🙂

The pluot held me over for about, hmm, 5 minutes before I was ravenously hungry and needed TO EAT. I had a hankering for one of our favorite local Thai places, and before you know it I was showered, dressed and out the door.

The place we like is called Thuyen Vien, and is a vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Anaheim. It’s a little bit of a hole-in-the-wall, but the owner is super nice and the food is AMAZING.

Started out with a young coconut, my own personal crack:

come to meeee.

getting after it, like a boss.

and then appetizers came.

We started with the banana flower rice cake things. So deceivingly simple, but a taste explosion in your mouth (TWSS).

I had two of the rice things and then one of these nori rolls, overflowing with tofu, carrots, cucumber, and radish sprouts and topped with a delicious Sriracha/yogurt topping. There are some seeds on top that I can’t identify!

fell apart immediately but worth scrounging around the plate for.

I was already feeling quite full before my entree came, but I couldn’t pass up a small bowl (plus a few spoons) of this gloriousness:

decipher me!

Notice, please, the lack of description on the menu. You pretty much have no idea what is going to come out on the plate except for the main ingredient, but happily everything we’ve ordered here has been a delectable surprise.

Devoured over brown rice 🙂

We had plenty of leftovers for later!

The Hubs and I are gonna continue the rest of our date night (day? afternoon?), so I’ll leave it here. Have a goodnight, hopefully you’re doing some fun stuff and eating some delicious stuff today too!

Questions for you:

Are you adventurous when you eat out? I’ll admit, the lack of description on Thuyen Vien’s menu had us worried the first time we ate there.
