Simply tasty

Yesterday morning I made my first successful green monster!

I blended 2 cup spinach, 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 tsp flax, 1 tsp agave and a handful of puffed brown rice cereal (for texture) and brought my blender to near death. It was delicious.

Last night I had a horrible upset stomach (I think I may have acid reflux), so today I thought I'd eat simple and light foods. For breakfast I had:

A pretty fruit salad, rice milk and ginger tea.

Then I got my hair cut and took a walk in the lovely sunshine. There are few things better than a sunny day stroll.

A local grocery store makes surprisingly good sushi, so I picked some up for lunch. This is a brown rice sweet vegetable roll, and it's mighty good.

Dinner was easy and required little culinary expertise, but at least I got to use the outdoor grill. I had a smart dog with bbq sauce and salsa (better than it sounds), the best sweet potato fries I've ever had, and steamed lemon garlic asparagus.

The rest of the evening involves either a run or yoga, some tea, and some relaxation. Maybe a little chocolate, too. Maybe.


  1. OMG, Krystina! Your grilled sweet potato fries have me drooling all over my keyboard.

  2. They were SO good! This particular type (I think a garnet yam) was super creamy and caramelized nicely when cooked. I seasoned them with S&P and sweet paprika and they had a sweet/smoky flavor. Then again, is it possible for sweet potatoes to not be delicious?

  3. P.S: It's lovely to meet you! :)
