I’ve been having a bit of a challenging time getting back into a blog rhythm (which may, for the record, be the hardest word ever to spell.) I felt like I got into my groove when I was in Australia, but since leaving for our vacation, it’s been really hard to get back into my groove. If you’re a blogger, what’s your blogging rhythm? How did you find it, and how do you find the balance?
Was an old favorite – pumpkin smoothie! As mentioned above, the blog rhythm is hard to find, and I keep forgetting to snap photos of meals. However, it looked very much like this…
Except topped with organic corn Crunch-Em’s, from Healthy Valley. Since trying to stop adding stevia to everything while on vacation (not easy at all, but I found myself having too much of it) I’ve found it hard to find a way to sweeten smoothies without adding too much (natural, i.e., fruit) sugar, so I played around. Into the mix went…
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1.5 cup almond milk
- 1/2 tsp raspberry all fruit preserves
- 1/2 tsp almond butter
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 dash good balsamic vinegar
- pumpkin pie spice
It was o.k…I think if I’m going to have smoothies in the future, however, I’d just suck it up and make a fruit instead of a pumpkin smoothie, as it just wasn’t sweet enough to be really delicious.
Today was spent prepping for my birthday party/bon voyage party that my parents are hosting tomorrow. I am so grateful and flattered that they want to do this, and the best part is getting to spend time with them chopping and prepping. My dad never does things half-assed, so we have enough food to feed about 80 people. It should be amazing, though!
Was an Amy’s frozen indian meal. Boring, but totally delicious.
Tonight we head off to meet my cousin’s baby – I’m so excited! More coming soon from vacation, I promise – we still have another country to go!
