Nothin’ fills me up like a thick smoothie!! Despite the fact that it was cold and dreary all day, I knew that’s what I wanted for a snack during class.
I got an email from Perfect Acai asking me to sample the powder and originally turned it down with the response that I’m "not a supplement person", but when my contact responded with an email stating that he totally understood along with the comment that you can’t get fresh acai berries in the US and that it goes rancid within 20 hours of picking so that freeze drying is the best method, I agreed to give it a try. I must admit that it did impart a nice berry flavor to my berryless smoothie! If you need a little more exotic superfood in your life, this isn’t bad way to get it 🙂 And apparently it’s good stirred into yogurt too?
I ended up adding an extra banana to my smoothie to get the right consistency and then had a ton in the blender, so I fed a glass to Matt. He gladly accepted the snack!
I took my smoothie to class and drank it around 5PM. Smoothies hold me over so long when I put some heft into them.
I did have a little mini snack around 6:30 – some Frog Hollow Farm dried peaches, which were actually pleasantly surprisingly good! They almost tasted fermented to me and a little charred!? Like roasted marshmallows! Here’s my lovely iPhone photo:
Once home at 8:30 I DOVE into the leftover Split Pea Soup in our fridge! Matt made this last night with split peas, broth, bacon, mushrooms, carrots and garlic per our Split Pea Soup recipe. It was quite thick. I shall call it:
Split Pea Mashed Potatoes
Served with two small slices of Flax Oat Bran cut into cubes:
Currently sipping Tazo Ginger Infusion tea. I usually do not like gingery flavor – it’s too bitter or something – but this is more like ginger ALE and Iove it!!!
Debating staying up and doing one of my late-night assignments. I have one I could finish in an hour…tempting!
I hope the sun’ll come out to-morr-ow!
