Unamused Cats

We are not accustomed to our new brother. He is smelly and loud.

It's Animal Day!

Here is our newest family member Gomez!

He is an adopted three year old chihuahua mix.

Here is an action shot, he's an action dog!

Smoothie 2 of 14

This one looks really gross, but it's good. Strawberries, spinach and a spoonful of Trader Joes "Greens" powder.

Smoothie 1 of 14

Here is my green smoothie of the day. I know, I know, it's not really green in color, but it's still a "green smoothie" because it has two big handfuls of baby spinach in it. It's very purply because of the blueberries.

It is sitting next to a pumpkin that my hubby grew in the garden, awwww, cute!

Green Smoothie Challenge Part 2

The Green Smoothie Challenge is starting again! If you're not familiar you can check it out here: http://www.greensmoothiechallenge.com/site/index.php

Anand and Runi are very interesting and generous people who have putting these challenges together. They've revamped the website for this new challenge and it looks great! So for the next two weeks, I'm having my green smoothie! (I have it pretty frequently anyway, I'm definitely a fan of the green smoothie.) Today's smoothie is pretty simple but tasty. Fresh organic blueberries and spinach and water. Hello antioxidants, roam around inside my cells, and take fistfuls of toxins when you leave, ok? Thanks!

In other news, I was up 0.3 pounds at weigh-in, which is kind of stupefying to me, but I was eating terrible foods prior to this week, so maybe my body is still catching up. On the other hand, still no conclusive proof that I am *not* pregnant...

Sick Saturday

Long time no bloggy. I am working on recovering from a nasty cold right now. I guess the long work hours finally caught up with me, so I am promising myself that I will only work five days a week from now on. At least, at the office. I want to spend more time working with my lovely hubby on Big Ole Face Full of Monster, our fun magazine (gomonstergo.com).

My 100 raw days is not really happening as consistently as I wanted it to, but I'm eating more veggies than I was when I started! I don't really see myself ever being 100% raw. I have to admit that it may not be right for me, at least not now. I get a little obsessed with food, especially the more I restrict it, so I have to be careful.

In non-food related news, am I preggers? Who knows. The magic stick says NO, but I am about a week late. I'd like to be preggers, so I think I'm going to start charting my cycle finally. Unless of course, it turns out that i'm already pregnant!

I got myself a ticket to meet Sarah Kramer at her book release event in San Francisco in October. She's kind of a hero to me, I think she's very inspirational and fun, so that is very exciting for me. If you don't know who she is, and you like vegan food, check out her three books, How it All Vegan, Garden of Vegan and La Dolce Vegan. They all have great recipes that everyone likes when I make them. The hot and sour soup recipe is a regular on the menu at my house.
