Happy St. Patrick’s Day: Eat Something Green!

Hi friends, how was your week?

Mine was lovely! I enjoyed a fabulous Thursday filled with yoga, followed by a spontaneous yoga-moms coffee get-together, and ending with a shopping sesh at Whole Paycheque Foods.

Picked up a new Lifefactory glass water bottle (my old plastic one kept popping open in my bag…not cool):

I've been wanting this one for ages.

Love the smaller 450ml/16oz size. Another reason to remind myself to stay well hydrated – it’s so important, to flush out toxins and make your skin glow.

When I came home, I madeĀ  apricot puree (from dried organic apricots, cooked in water until soft, then pureed) for the little Mr., then started on making dinner for the big Mr., but turned out he was picking up some food for himself on the way home. So I scavenged the fridge and freezer and look what I found:

Organic Edamame Beans

The last time I had them was when I still was pregnant and I totally forgot what an awesome new mom snack they can make! I had them in my freezer all those months, looking for healthy snacks in my cupboards and the fridge, and the freezer was only useful to store Haagen Dasz Mayan Chocolate Ice Cream. I started way too late on our intended Thursday dinner, and the Split Pea Soup was still simmering, so I decided on a random mix of foods:

random but good

The above mentioned edamame beans, slice of walnut and onion bread from the Swiss bakery (via Whole Foods) with cambozola cheese, and a small bowl of the Neal Brothers Organic Cheese Pops. Those were soooo yummy. ;) They even were on sale at WF (2 for $4!!!) – I should go back and get some more.

Friday we spent outside and got soaked in the rain on the way home, but a lovely sandwich made up for it:

gruyere & tomato sandwich

Made with one of these:

heirloom tomatoes

And of course I had to start St. Patrick’s Day off with a delicious and nutritious green smoothie for breakfast. A great way to get some veggies in!

pear, frozen banana, spinach, lemon juice and almond milk

Well, I have to pack some things for a still unknown overnight trip with my two favourite guys. I have no clue what they have planned and it’s eating me up – patience is not my strong suit!

Do you randomly throw stuff together for meals? I used to, but nowadays I usually don’t, because it’s our time together as family. I like nice dinners (in or out) so I usually spend a lot of time on deciding, planning, shopping and cooking. But sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, right? ;)

Do you like green smoothies? I love them!

OK, hope to see you soon with a fun little recap of my surprise trip – I can’t take the suspense!!!
