Shake, Rattle & Roll


I have a new go-to breakfast, people….the Protein Shake!!!


In this shake:

  • 1 banana
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 1 scoop Rainbow Light Protein powder

Today’s lunch was a chicken Salad salad =:)


Here it is again, just to get back to smoothies…

Yes, it’s true…after a full month of eggs EVERY MORNING…hard-boiled, scrambled, etc… it’s time for a change and time for a happy belly.  Please!!!

So the third photo was a professionally blended smoothie from a local vegan eatery Karma Road, in New Paltz, NY.  They make a Peanut-butter-in-my-chocolate smoothie that is just like eating Reese’s peanut butter cups…with chocolate rice milk and banana.  Matthew and I went there on a mini-date Monday evening and it remains my favorite karma-restoring place post-veganism-due- to-gluten-free-mandate.  Yum.   (They also sell gluten free rice krispie treats, which I will hopefully be able to consume some day when the aforementioned happy belly makes an appearance).  A brief note on this… I was reading a great blog by The Paleo Mom in which there’s a discussion about the length of time it takes to heal a gut from gluten.  She does a super job explaining the details of this process in an understandable way.  Thank you, Sarah!

At home, I’ve been using a new protein powder by Rainbow Light called the Chocolate Protein Energizer.  Seriously, people, within 5 minutes of consumption I’m ready for whatever comes next.  And that’s saying a lot considering  the current state of villi-affairs.

I might actually make this the breakfast AND lunch shake.

Now for the home front:  My baby’s ready to rattle and roll.  Peace!
