weekend getaways are GOOD. even if only for a day. it feels great to just drive away.
out on the open road, with green nature-y things all around you, and a costco muffin stashed in the glove compartment.
road trips are also code for eat all the pizza and pancakes and milkshakes as you possibly can. didn't you know?
by sunday night my stomach was pretty pissed off with me.
and it was fiending for green. not green sprinkles. green planty food.
i ran with the theme and came up with a major power lunch.
avocado toast. the most perfect simple delicious lunch. and juice that is GREEN.
this is what's in the juice: apples, cucumber, basil, and lime. it's frothy and fresh and surprisingly sweet.
don't fear the froth. it might look a little strange, but froth is a good thing.
kids will not believe you when you tell them it's really good. they'll make gross faces while you drink it.
ignore them, they're judgers by nature.
anyway, this lunch was good. i felt the nutrients and vitamins rushing back into my bod.
then, i made a coffee cake.
