I set my alarm for the gym this morning, but I woke up with the same headache I went to bed with, and it was pretty shitty. So I swallowed a handful of ibuprofen, reset the alarm and went back to sleep for a couple of hours. When I woke up, it was gone. Guess I needed the rest. But I can go for the next 4 days, so no harm done.
On to the menu!
I had another lazy food day. We don't have much in the way of groceries right now, so I used up what we had laying around for breakfast, hit Festival for lunch, and had pizza for dinner. Okay the pizza was a little involved, but other than that it was lazy town.
I made a green smoothie for breakfast from a post a friend shared on Facebook. Bananas, kale, cashews, etc. The recipe says it serves two, but I thought "Eh, I eat as much as two people." So I made it, and it was good, but I couldn't finish it.
Doesn't taste green at all.
I was fairly busy all morning, and I didn't get hungry (that I noticed) until after noon. I was going to go for a bowl of chili, but I really wanted sushi, so that's what I had.
Yup. With rice.
I'm trying to be a little more forgiving of myself this week for less-than-perfect eating. I'm under stress and I have a strong tendency to eat my feelings. So far I've avoided eating junk food, and I figure indulging a sushi craving will keep me from eating something far less useful.
I also had some clementines.
Last night I made paleo "cheese" for pizza tonight. It's a little involved, but not difficult. I used a jarred organic pizza sauce and topped it with turkey pepperoni along with my "cheese". The cheese melts, but doesn't do that string thing that real cheese does. I have to say this was pretty good. It's not exactly like real pizza, but from a flavor perspective it's dead on and the texture is close. I got two good sized pizzas out of the recipe with cheese left over for one more round.
As close as I get to pizza, beer, and a cookie these days.
My big plan for tonight is watching a DVR episode of The Red Road (I started watching it because that ridiculously hot guy from GoT-the one who plays Khal Drogo-is in it) which is actually a pretty interesting show. Then who knows..reading a book, knitting a sock, going to bed at 8pm? It could get pretty wild in here.
Wow, seriously. Jason Momoa is reeeaaaaallly. hot.
