I’m reeeeaaaally trying to resist the urge to cut my hair again. I’m just getting bored with it, but I promised myself I’d stay strong and hold out. I supposed I could change the color to mix it up a bit, but that honestly scares me more than chopping it all off does.
I tried a kale salad for the first time this week. I have no idea why I’ve never tried one, but it was surprisingly good. I normally only used kale in fresh juice and green smoothies. I massaged the leaves with lime juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Massaging softens the greens and helps them wilt a bit since kale tends to be a little tough. I then added Fuji apple, avocado, chia seeds, and ground flax seed. It was quick, filling, and delicious.
Fresh flowers I picked up from Trader Joe’s this week. The lilies have since bloomed, and I’ve come to realize I’m not really a fan of the way they smell. I’m not sure if these are some super variety or what, but they have a bit of an odd odor to me. Whatevs….they’re still pretty to look at. By the way, I recently thrifted that vase for around $0.50. I heart it big time!
This edamame from Trader Joe’s is really good and easy to whip up. I added it to quinoa along with sauteed veggies to make a sort of pilaf to accompany some tofu I made for dinner. It was a surprising hit.
