Wacky Wednesday Accident Edition

Today was too gorgeous to be true. I went to yoga and came out feeling like a million bucks – apparently the weather felt just as good because it was amazing out!!!


Post yoga I got a refreshing tea beverage from Cha for Tea. I love this place, but their prices are a little steep (haha “steep” get it?!).


After yoga I stopped in a Trader Joes to get lunch – A spicy lentil wrap and carrots. I got something out because I didn’t want to drive all the way home for lunch and I still had errands to run that were in the opposite direction.


One home I ate an entire bag of cherries. I know a serving is 20, but I cannot stop myself around these things. They are my kryptonite.


Then the Wackiness of Wednesday caught up with me when I somehow managed to drop Ben’s book in the toilet. I didn’t know what to do with it so I threw it in the shower and hoped it wasn’t ruined.


On another wacky note – I say the word “ruined” weird (or wrong depending on how you look at it). Ben didn’t point this out to me until months after he heard me say it and I’ve decided to keep saying it my way forever.


Dinner was built around this TJ’s Southwest salad.


I added some canned refried beans and baked Tostitos to make a taco salad. So good.


But the highlight of the meal has to be the toast I stole from Ben. TJ’s WW Tuscan Pane is good. Get some.IMG_6786

I’m going to call it a night and slip away from the computer. Just know I’m having a protein ice cream shake for dessert.

My recipe:

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

1 cup almond milk


1/8 tsp xantham gum

1 tsp. cocoa powder

packet sugar (opt)

Tb Peanut Butter (opt)

Blend. Top with granola. Eat.

It’s no Chubby Hubby, but it’s good!

    Is that Shakti in Irvine? A couple of the yoga teachers at the Y where I used to take yoga work there and they are great. I just joined yoga works because it is close to me in Costa Mesa, but I was wondering how you liked Shakti? I love those Lentil wraps from TJ’s, those and the eggplant ones.

    mmm yum southwest salad. I love that you eat refried beans. Is that a weird confession? haha I just feel like they get a bad rap and I LOVE them. Fabulous!

    I think I could eat refried beans on a taco salad with tortilla chips every single night and never get sick of it. Maybe I should host a contest: Who can eat the most refried beans? I think I would win.

    Reading posts like this makes me wish we had a TJ’s in Dallas!

    Today was a gorgeous day! I felt the same way after yoga today :)
    I’m the same way with cherries and grapes, I can’t be stopped once I start eating them!

    Your dinner looks delicious :)

    My fiance points out that I say “fifty” differently! I think it just adds personality to us 😉

    I’ve made protein ice cream before. I love it. I’ve alsomade protein brownies! Delicious :)

    I’d pay extra for a drink that came with a fun straw like that!

    Can you please send some of that beautiful weather to MD? Pretty please? I’ll pay you in cherries? :)

    “Steep”! Haha love it. I absolutely love silly puns.

    Also, cherries are my kryptonite as well. I’ll buy a bag, and then all of a sudden they’re all gone. My response? “The dog must have eaten them.”

    I love taco salad’s for dinner – what a great way to use up some leftovers!

    I love when people say drawer weird (like in a desk) – many people in the northeast say draw.
