My day started with a green smoothie.
|(apple, kale, lemon, cucumber, celery, kale, ginger)|
It started early (5am early), but the great thing about working the early shift at my job is that my work day ends early too. I was really looking forward to coming home and poking around the fridge and cooking some veggies.
I got soaked in the rain on the way home. I resisted it, huddling under a comically small over-hang, outside my favourite health food store, for about 10 minutes. It took that long to finally embrace the fact that I was going to get really, really wet.
As I made my way home, sloshing in my shoes, I took a moment to enjoy it. I've only been caught in a handful of other late-summer showers that have soaked me to the skin. I took a moment to breathe and just really be where I was.
And then I took a moment to think about what vegetables currently on my kitchen table could be made into soup.
And roasted vegetables.
And other deliciousness because a just a green smoothie wasn't really enough for breakfast this morning.
Do any of you have a tried and true granola bar recipe? I'm in need of a mid-morning snack.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
