August 10th, 2009: status normal

Hi gang!  Me and my butt slept in till 7:30 this morning!  Woo!  I got to bed crazy late (for me) but I will take 7:30 wake up!  I took care of Rocks and realized that the humidity from yesterday did not go away.


I had some coffee and headed into the office to see what kind of damage was going on.  Apparently I didn’t get a picture of the coffee!  Whoops!  I worked on yesterday’s post and checked in with some of you on your blogs.  Then I made some breakfast.

Apple, yogurt, and granola

We finally have granola back in the house, so granola it was!  With some 2% Fage and an apple.  YUM!  After breakfast I got dressed and took Rocky around the block.  It was way too humid/hot for him to have a longer walk.  When we got home, he crashed out and I started laundry.

And then I started thinking about lunch and how fantastic it sounded.  More specifically, how fantastic a smoothie sounded. ;)  Check out a new addition to the HQ today.

Carrot juice

I saw Hangry Heather tried some and while I was at the grocery store yesterday, I spied a small bottle and decided to test it out.  I had a small sip and was pleasantly surprised.  It’s a lot sweeter than I expected and it was thick and creamy! Reminded me of the consistency of Silk soymilk.  It was so good!  Although I would not be able to drink a whole glass of just straight carrot juice, I can see it being handy to have around.  I had Scott try some and his response was, “Yeah. It tastes like carrot juice.”

Oh boys.

It was your basic Andrea lunch:



  • Mixed greens
  • Shredded carrot and parsnip
  • Cucumber
  • Broccoli
  • Raisins
  • Pumpkin seeds

White wine vinegar and olive oil on top.


Crackers for the Hummus Tub. HumTub?



  • 1.5C US cranberry juice
  • .5C Carrot juice
  • .5C POM
  • .5C OJ
  • Kale
  • Parsnip
  • 1/2 a beet
  • Banana
  • Frozen peaches
  • Frozen mango
  • Frozen blueberries

Oh this was such a creamy and delish smoothie!  One of the best so far. :D

Smoothie, salad, and hummus

Lunch was great although I didn’t eat all of my salad.  There were some leafy greens that I didn’t care for and it was a bit tough going down.  I did eat most of it though.

Alright gang, I have to do more laundry, some officey stuff, and get emails out to people!
