charmed i'm sure

I recently inherited my mother's, and grandmothers charm bracelets. This one is my Mothers. She wrote me the sweetest letter describing some of the charms.
My favorite is a little flat circular one from Niagara Falls purchased on her honeymoon , it has two little rings on it. awwwww
The violin is from, when she played violin
The Cat (you cant see his face) has a small chain that when pulled it winks. its kinda creepy
The megaphone is from when my mom was a cheerleader.
The one of Florida is from when she took a trip to Florida with her cheerleader troupe. They fit like 8 girls on one red convertible!

I'm very surprised it fits around my wrist, there are soooo many charms.
I wore it to a concert that ended up being very boring. I just sat there and stared at all the charms and imagined all her adventures!

They are my new Obsession!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I drink one every morning now and find myself in the best of fucking moods!  The best part is.... Josh gets home before i do most days and washes the blender for me! In a new effort to avoid soy (processed soy , tempeh and miso are still ok) I have been researching alternatives. So happy to have found almond milk and hemp milk! they are so much better for you, no Gmos, and oh so yummy.
So my new fave smoothie creation is...

Almond chocolate kinda tastes like a milkshake/cookie
 (if you remember take banana out of freezer at least 20 minns prior to making smoothie, you will have a easier time getting the peel off. Otherwise you will be standing over the sink jerking off a icicle, it feels so wrong)
1-frozen banana
1 cup almond milk
5 tbps choclate HempShake by Nutiva
2 tbs Almond Butter

blend blend blend 
soooooo yummy. my camera needs batteries so now photos on my yummy creation!
I want one now!

note to self

no i'm not getting married..... i have fully excepted it.
but if i did...... it would be something like this

green goddess bad breath pasta!

I adapted my own version here from the skinny bitch series book, skinny bitch in the kitch!
which i suggest picking up for some basic recipes

1- box brown rice pasta
6 tbs vegan butter
10 garlic cloves (stinky!)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
5 tbs green goddess salad dressing (the garlic one, make sure to get the vegan brand annies i think)
2 zucchini sliced
1 head of broccoli cut into bite size pieces
1 bunch of kale ripped into bite size pieces
1/4 pine nuts
cook pasta according to directions. when you have 4 minns left add all your veggies and cook together in the same pot.  reserving 1/4 cup of water, drain and let it all chill for a minn in the colander.
meanwhile melt butter and add garlic. cook on medium heat until garlic is tender, be careful not to burn! mash garlic with a fork.

add a few scoops or pasta and veggies into the pot at a time and drizzle with garlic butter, stirring till it is all coated. add in your green goddess salad dressing and sprinkle nutritional yeast. should be a little creamy and tangy. stir in 1/8 the cup on pine nuts . serve warm and sprinkle top with remaining pine nuts and salt and pepper . yum!

As cliche as it may seem i do quite a bit of my shopping at Pike Place market.
I always go to arcade 7 to get my produce and i love the pasta counter right next to it!
It is super cheap, i got a huge bag filled for $18! The man that always helps me is so sweet, and last time he gave me.....

I had to quit the master cleanse. Not to be too personal but i got my period and that was just to much for me. On to raw food for a bit......

I forgot to mention how fantastic yesterday was. Josh and I walked downtown then took the monorail to seattle center. Much to my surprise they have a roller coaster there!!!!!!! I started screaming when I saw it,  I was so excited. We rode it twice. It was Josh's first roller coaster ride ever! The Windstorm! The fastest $17 we have ever spent but worth it for sure. I was so jealous of all my friends in nyc because they have coney island, well jealous no more. my love promised to take me here whenever i am sad.

Master Cleanse

So today is my first day of the Master Cleanse. I have tried it before and only made it to day 3.
I keep trying not to think about it or make a big deal. I felt pretty great all day. Only now at 9:07 am i starting to feel like shit. I have thee worst headache. Jeez what is in my body.
I told myself when i started this that i would just go as long as i could and not set any limits for myself. So we shall see.
I drank half of my salt flush a half hour ago, so far nothing has happened. The last time i attempted to drink a liter of salt water i barfed it right back into the sink. This time was a little more successful.
i want a pizza with real fucking cheese
