Monday's work day, everybody happy, well, I should say...do you remember that song? We used to sing it in Girl Scouts. I am always singing some old song to my kids.
I worked alone today and got an excellent workout. It was humid, so I also had a sauna. hehehe!
I stopped by Kroger (our local grocer) to get some veggies and check out their manager's markdowns. I scored on 3 containers of broccoli sprouts @ 99 cents each, organic chocolate rice milk @ 99 cents for 32oz.. as a treat for the kids. I also purchased some peaches and a few avocado's. While checking the freezer section in the health department...what did I see??? So Delicious (Vegan & soy free) coconut milk ice cream bars covered in chocolate with bits of almonds, sweetened with agave....mmmmmmmmm.....sounded like a good cheat treat....so I got a box and sampled it on the way home in the steamy 80 something degree, muggy weather...WOWZIE!! these things are delicious..they are not raw..but they are good!!!...they are also, history..they come four to a box and there are four of us living at home...4-4=0

I also buy their unsweetened coconut milk to make my husband's protein smoothies.
So, if you are not 100% this is a good milk substitute.

1 pint of Green Lemonade~celery, swiss chard, lemon, ginger, stevia
I made a couple of meals out of this while working and for the ride home~
2 brown rice cakes with raw almond butter

green pepper strips
4-5 black olives
Coconut milk bar~mmmmmmmm
Before YogaX~I had 1 cup of asparagus soup~I made about 2 qts of this yesterday~
asparagus, water, seitenbacher veggie broth powder, mustard seed, squirt of dijon mustard,dash of Mrs. Dash, 1/2 sweet potato, green onion...warmed and blended...it needed a bit of lemon juice to set it off..but it is good a filling.
kale salad~shredded kale, green onion, lime juice, braggs, toasted sesame oil, sesame seeds.. and about 1 T. frozen peas...that was left in the bag :(
4 baked organic corn chips
