Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Not a booze bag.

Well Hellooooooooo! Happy belated Saint Patty’s day. How’s everyone feeling? I decided to lay low this weekend to detox a bit from the past years binge¬† all the crap I’ve been consuming. While everyone was out drinking, I was eating loads of veggies and drinking fruit smoothies. Yeah, it was definitely as boring as it sounds. The good news is that I feel great today!

 

 

Smoothies included nothing but frozen fruit and water. Surprisingly, they weren’t too bad.

Veggie dishes included boiled cabbage and carrots (with vinegar and mustard).

I am 25% Irish, after all.

 

Roasted veggies with different herbs…

and lots of kale chips. I outdid myself with the kale chips this weekend. Ugh, can’t imagine popping another one of those crispy bastards into the old trap. In my short-lived cleanse, a couple delicious discoveries were made…. scallions (yum!) and tahini sauce (holy hell). For some reason, I’ve always opted out of tahini sauce which was a biiiiiiig mistake. As bizarre as it sounds, I can definitely see this being a trigger food for me. It’s creamy and amazing (that sounds dirty).

In the many hours of downtime this weekend, I read over some old journals. Turns out I’m just as screwed up as I was 10-15 years ago. ūüôā ¬†Red box and I bonded a bit as it’s packed with quality flicks right now.¬†Like Crazy (second time seeing it) was really good. It does an incredible job portraying a realistic relationship and connection. Many people can probably relate in some way. ¬†I love Felicity Jones; she’s adorable.

The Greene¬†¬†was also good. Young Adult…not so much. It was¬†¬†disappointing and was turned off halfway through.

So there you have it folks…. getting wild and crazy like usual.

Tell me your fun stories from this weekend so I can live vicariously through you.
