The first sign…
February 3, 2010
There are several signs that indicate the re-birth of a knight. They are so prominent and so specific that I find it very hard to fathom my own achievement of one of these said signs:
As many valiant and noble men (bloggers) have attested to, the green ‘dragon’ could quite possibly be the epitome of a knight’s strength and ability. Mastering the art of green monster making/dragon slaying is difficult, indeed. But when done right, it is the taste of victory.
You might have already noticed, I’m feeling a tad better… hence, my feeble attempt to create any lick of humor in relating the blogosphere’s favorite smoothie, The Green Monster, to dragon slaying… but that’s beside the point.
I awoke this morning, feeling pretty spiffy. I had a feeling it was going to be a good day, for how could one go wrong with such a breakfast? I mean, I met nearly no fuss when choosing my English muffin spreads, it felt like no compromise! I had one with real butter, and the other with raw almond butter. Normally, I’d feel as if I were missing something… but the planets seemed to be aligned. And to make up for my vegetable consumption (or lack there of, as a result of my stomach virus and complete aversion to anything fibrous), I was CRAVING green this morning. So in the blender went a frozen banana, 2 rather large handfuls of spinach, a few chunks of pineapple, Silk Almond milk, water, and ice! Voila! Veggies for breaky. Delicious, indeed.
While I’m near the topic of Silk Almond Milk, I spose it’s the perfect time for a little review. First, the texture is DEFINITELY new, for almond milk, that is. It’s much much creamier than any I’ve tried. I usually purchase unsweetened almond milk, so this was a tad sweeter than I fancy, but delicious none the less. To put it simply, it tastes like Vanilla Silk, but with a stronger almond than soy taste… if you catch my drift. I’d recommend it if you’re in the market for something new!
TO further affirm my new found health, tonight I’m actually cooking! It has been ONE WHOLE WEEK, and I have not cooked a single meal. I actually had to tell myself NOT to think about food, I was making myself nauseous. Thank god those days are over. KITCHEN HERE I COME!!!!
