By some evil twist of fate, no sooner do I start this blog, than I develop a tooth problem (of which you certainly don’t want details)! So, I have spent my day consuming liquid meals. However, being the foodie that I am, I am trying to make this as interesting as possible, with varying degrees of success.
I started the day with a smoothy. Anybody who knows me, knows how I love my Vitamix! I use it most days and am really addicted to smoothies anyway, so this was not an unusual morning ritual. I keep it simple in the morning because I shave my time very close. Nearly every minute is accounted for from the time my ears hear the alarm until the moment I step into the car. Simple smoothies get me a healthy meal, and I can put it in a travel cup!
Today, it was comfort food: chocolate!
- 1 c. soy milk
- 1 banana
- 2 TBSP raw cocoa powder
- 4 ice cubes
- sweetener to taste
whirl it all together and drink up! What a treat for a day with no “real” food!
