“Shakes” by Tones on Tail
The above photo is of a pure hemp protein powder, psyllium husk, and water shake/smoothie thing I made. My coworkers ever so politely tell me my protein shakes look like vomit. As a friend of mine sent me this photo lately,
I will let that bit of bitchiness speak for itself.
My options at work for drinking, since we cannot eat while working, are thus:
- Buy kombucha. Get drunk. (More than half a bottle makes me tipsy).
- Drink a cold-pressed juice, the naturally-occurring sugar in which will make me crash harder than a five-year-old on rollerblades.
- Drink a horchata-like fat and sugar concoction which pushes my already high fat intake disgustingly high.
2 cups kale
1 cup frozen blueberries
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon miso
Blitz and divide into two containers. I froze mine as always and drank it the next day.
So I had the Shakeology, Rawmeal, kombucha and detox tea (and some green tea, berry zinger, and chamomile tea), one kale-blueberry, and strawberry-carrot. Dinner was solid chickpea soul soup, kale, and steamed asparagus. The carrot-strawberry smoothie was dessert. Wasn’t hungry enough to have the maca magick. I am no expert on juice fasting, but at the end of the day and then this morning, I felt much more relaxed.
I asked Ownie Mom for my Halloween socks and she sent them to me wrapped in Whole Foods bags and secured with green rubber bands…is she mocking me? 😉
