Happenings & A Raspberry Vanilla Smoothie
A while back Tammylee poked that I needed to update my profile pic on the crafting sites and Facebook. My default Profile Pic is years old. But I have to say - I don't often like the photos I take of myself nor do I take many. I always seem to be the one behind the camera and not in front of it, I guess. I'm NOT Camera Shy but there certainly aren't a lot of recently photos of me. More specifically ones I would or could use as a profile photo in a semi-serious situation. I belong to a lot of writing, radio, and voice over sites as well so I should look into changing it soon, eh!?
My foods have been overly simplistic this week! Mostly smoothies, salads, mono-meals of fruit, maybe a veggie sandwich or two. I did 'cheat' and had a Vegan Grilled Cheese Sandwich using Daiya Cheese the other day...and I have had Tempeh twice this week.
I'm sprouting more Radish Sprouts as well as a Salad Mix.
Another interesting kitchen experiment tidbit - I'm going to start trying to grow Celery soon! Yes...in my kitchen!
A Smoothie I had the other day is pictured here! Very simple...
1 C Raspberries
1 C Almond Milk
1 Scoop of Garden of Life Vanilla Protein Powder
1-inch chunk of Banana
It was tasty! I also received a shipment of more NuNatural Products yesterday and I will be messing around with those soon! I was intrigued by the Oat Fiber as well as the Tagatose which is a naturally-occuring sweetener found in fruits and veggies. But I'm super excited about the Peppermint Stevia Flavor! YAY!
PS - Fantastic Food Friday has MOVED - check it out HERE!

That looks great. I'm curious, why do you add protein? You don't think you receive enough from the produce you consume?ReplyDelete
Mostly I just add it for a little extra flavor...that specific day I didn't have all that much to eat - as a whole - so it probably helped, I guess. Normally I don't really even think of the protein intake but I feel I do get enough from what I consume on a daily basis. But I do like their products and some of their flavors for smoothies and such.Delete
I feel I do get enough with my daily intake, generally speaking :)
I was curious with the protein hype you hear sometimes people consume way too much and yes that includes vegans. ;)Delete
I remember people harping about me consuming protein years ago when I was prepping for Figure competition. My main main trainer and secondary trainer both were 'concerned' since they knew I was vegan. For some reason they could not believe that I could get all my protein from produce.
I truly believe that pretty much everyone is obsessed with 'protein' these days. I think that too much protein is harmful, too! It's very frustrating being veg and everyone constantly asking us that! LOLDelete
Ditto on posting yesterday, it's been a week! The smoothie looks great and interesting on growing celery, can't wait to see how that goes.ReplyDelete
I add GoL protein to my smoothies too for extra protein, I like to start the day with a good amount of protein because sometimes as a vegan, we have to make interesting compromises that aren't too loaded in protein. :-)
I was just telling a co-worker about the Kitchen-Grown Celery...he's interested as well! I hope to start doing that soon! Just have to use the rest of the celery I bought before chopping off the bottom :)Delete
Wow ... you added banana to your smoothie?ReplyDelete
PS: You should add matcha to your smoothies!
YEAH!!!!!! Aren't you proud of me!? LOL - I have been TRYING my best...I can only to about a 1/4 of a banana - maybe half of one if the other ingredients are 'hard core'.Delete
I have some smoothies on tap I will be doing with Matcha for our site as well! I hope!
Love the pic - you look great Jennifer! I really do like the hair =)ReplyDelete
Growing celery in your kitchen? I'm always excited to learn what you'll be up to next! You are always doing something way cool on your own (sprouting, gardening, etc). You rock!
Thanks a million! Oh...I'm working on a post on sprouting today, too! Stay tuned!!!! YOU ROCK as well :)Delete
