My mango stash is ripening fast, so down the hatch! Mangoes are a staple for me, so I buy a lot each week. Tonight I made a mono-meal of 5 huge Keitt Mangoes. So smooth that they practically melt in your mouth.
If I don't want to mono-meal mangoes I may add some cucumber, cherry or grape tomatoes, and drizzle lime on top . This is one of my favorite meals.
Depending on the size, one mango is 100 calories or a bit over. For the most part I know how many calories are in the fruits and vegetables I consume which makes calculations easier.
On the 80/10/10 low fat, high carb, raw vegan diet (that's a mouth full, and very eye roll worthy), I typically consume anywhere between 1500 - 2000 a day, depending on how active I am. The more ballet, swing dancing, and dance cardio, I do on any given day, the more I need to eat. Fruit is fuel.
I put my drink in a flower pot. . la la la. . .la la la. This is the closest I get to drinking alcohol. Should I feel like a big girl when I crack open a bottle of the booch? This here is, Strawberry Kombucha Smoothie. I need to add some exclamation marks here, gimme a second.. ! ! ! ! There, I feel better. SO good!
Thank you, Onch of ONCH MOVEMENT ( jewelry designer. I actually have one of his quirky pieces. also; formerly on that Paris Hilton reality show where people competed for BFF status ). He created something so Willy Wonka meets Candyland meets Rainbow Bright that I can't not be dazzled. Now, ordinarily I'm a person who fiercely dislikes white chocolate. Yes, fiercely. It's a fist shaking in the air, struggling hard to not hurt the feelings of freak children who have it in their smiling mouths kind of aggravation. I'm dark chocolate all the way. But then ONCH birthed something miraculous that this uptight, undeserving girl, wasn't even asking for. A white chocolate bar wiiiiiith. . . Sour Patch Kids, Gummy Bears, and Fruity Pebbles. Aaah! Needless to say, I broke eating raw for this today. Thus far I don't feel sick. Knock on wood.
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
