Lunch.

I wasn’t planning on posting anything today.  I’m bogged down with Babble deadlines, trying to conquer the ever growing mountain that is my email, and working on our Recipage site redesign.  But then I got a few bites into my lunch, and felt the urge to say hi.  So…HI!

I am a creature of habit.  I find something I like, and I do (or eat!) it over and over again.  I can easily eat the same thing day after day without getting bored.  And right now that thing is this – toasted hempseed bread with coconut spread, half an avocado, two fried eggs, and a smoothie to wash it all down.

First, let’s talk about the bread.  I discovered Silver Hills products at our local grocery store, and I have yet to find a variety I don’t love.  They are local-ish to Seattle (Canada), and it’s some of the tastiest and most nutritious bread I’ve found.  The Hemptation variety I’m eating now has 7 grams of protein per slice!  I am trying each variety one by one, but this one is my favorite so far.

As for the rest of the sandwich, I just toast the bread, slather on the coconut spread, slice and avocado and layer the slices, and quickly fry two eggs in a pan.  I usually like my eggs to be really runny, but today’s got a little overcooked because I was feeding the dogs at the same time.  Multi-tasking!

As for the smoothie, Casey makes a big blender full every morning for the whole family.  He usually starts with a blend of spinach, carrots, banana, frozen mango, frozen berries, and flax oil.  Then pours a big pint glass for Cullen, and adds some protein powder to the rest of the mixture for us.  Each of us has a big glass every day – a quick and easy way to get in fruits and vegetables between work, play, and other meals.

I don’t actually eat this sandwich every day, although I would if I could.  But I don’t want to eat that many eggs each week, so I probably average 2-3 times a week instead.  I always get excited when I realize it’s been a few days, and our avocados are the perfect ripeness.  It’s the little things, right?

So that’s it – there’s my lunch!  Did I knock your socks off?  I’m crossing my fingers for a good nap today because I still have a lot of work to finish.  And after that, I’m counting down to tonight – hoping to take a Barre class with a friend and watch the Top Chef finale with Casey after bedtime!  Hope everyone is having a good day as well.  See you tomorrow!
