Turning Green

A little rusty on my spinach to water ratio:
Also inside: frozen banana and pineapple.

Steamed kale, mushroom gravy, yam.

Vinyasa Flow: twists, hips, and L - Handstands against the wall (the only one I can do successfully!)


I wanted to make a taco salad for dinner. I made a mental list of items to buy at the grocery store, but my car drove me to Native Foods Cafe. Oh, well! 

Southwest Chipotle Chopped Salad. Yes, it was delicious.

Not green: while I waited for my salad, they handed out samples of their brownie. It's a good thing I didn't try one before stopping at the cash register! So good!

Happy Earth Day!

  1. that's one clever car - I'd be thanking it for leading me to that fancy looking box of dinner!
    What else goes into the spinach drink? It looks like health in a glass!

    1. I wish my car would be on auto-pilot all of the time! ;) Frozen banana, frozen pineapple, and water!

  2. What beautiful meals!! Your smoothie looks frosty and delicious and I've been loving pineapple in my smoothies. So sweet and the anti inflammatory properties are so appealing ;) Beautiful lunch, I'm loving all of the greens you packed in to this day! I agree with Joey, you have a very smart car :) The salad looks incredible and I still love that the dressing says chop on it. I don't know why... although the "chip chop" was even cuter. So jealous of Native Foods!

    I'm so impressed that you can do the handstand against the wall! I would 100% fall on my head, I'm so spazzy. Looks like you are making some big strides with your practice!

    Happy Earth Day!

    1. I totally forgot about pineapple being anti-inflammatory! I should research my ingredients a little more!

      Ha ha! I knew that the bit about my car driving me there would cause a giggle or two. ;) I wish the person that originally wrote the "chip chop" would work the same night I buy the salad. Too funny!

      Well, know that I have a massive fear of headstands. I just imagine my neck collapsing and snapping in two. Right now I can lean on my head, but lifting my toes off ground is terrifying! One day, I hope to be able to do it!!

  3. So it's frozen Pineapple in the smoothie? Is that sold frozen?

    Can't wait till my car drives me to Native Foods. Hope my car knows how to parallel park, cuz I don't.

    1. Hopefully your Native Foods has a parking lot, like this one - just in case it doesn't parallel park. ;) Mine doesn't either. Ha ha!

      Yes! I buy a bag of frozen pineapple at Whole Foods when they put it on sale.
