I’m already behind on posting! I’ve been eating SO much great stuff here at Living Light; I have tons to show you!
I started my first day of class last Thursday with an Island Paradise smoothie: papaya, pineapple, mango, oranges, and bananas.
I had a raw nut and seed bar for lunch, and then these pizza flax crackers as an afternoon snack.
Now, I had half a mind to breeze right past this and act like nothing is amiss about it, but anyone who’s been reading my blog for any length of time knows that I DO NOT “do” salads. No sir. Hate ’em, can’t stand ’em, etc. So what in the hell possessed me to pick up this taco salad for dinner? I know not. I can’t stress it enough: this is a completely unprecedented event. I have never eaten a salad for a meal before in my life.
I think this romaine salad, with its “beans” (veggies, almonds, sunflower seeds, and spices), red bell pepper bits, black olives, salsa, guacamole, and cashew sour cream, reminded me of the Mexi-salad I made and tried (and kinda liked!) in Level II at 105degrees. But something else must have possessed me, because somehow, not only did I EAT this thing, but I FINISHED it. True story.
That’s right, folks. Let me reiterate: the unthinkable has happened—I ate a salad. And crazier yet, I think I liked it! Aren’t you proud of me!?!
So that’s the big story of this post, but let’s not forget dessert. Living Light’s dessert case makes my mouth water on sight.
Since I’d eaten that ginormous salad, I chose a mini raspberry-cherry chocolate cream crumble.
What a wonderful introduction to Living Light’s desserts—it was amazing!
So: I ate a salad. For real. Discuss.
