Hello Gorgeous

You know those days when you feel ugly and fat?

I had one of those days.

I thought this Fairy Tale Smoothie Cereal shimmering in pink and sprinkled with granola and TJ Fiber Cereal would cheer me up.

Fairy Tale Smoothie

3 Strawberries

1 Frozen banana

1 Papaya cube

I plastered a fake smile on my face and shoved my breakfast into my mouth.

I tried to not let my mood affect me when lunch came around. But somehow, this colorful creation didn’t make me feel any better. Instead, I felt nauseous and sick from probably eating too much.

Raw Zucchini Hummus

adapted from Choosing Raw

2 zucchini, chopped
½ cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 ½ tsp cumin
1 cup raw tahini (the Artisana brand is nice; substitute regular tahini if you need to)
4 tbsp olive oil
½ cup raw sesame seeds

I finally gave up feeling sorry for myself around 3 in the afternoon. I decided to trumped outside in my bathrobe.

Camera in one hand. Princess umbrella in the other.

Hello Gorgeous.

I didn’t know such beauties could be seen right in my backyard.

I didn’t know that on such a gloomy and wet day, the simple wonders of Mother Nature could make me feel so amazing.

I forgot that one only had to feel beautiful to see beautiful.

I felt amazing.

I felt gorgeous.

  1. Aw, this is such a great post. You’re right. There is SO much natural beauty around us…in their pure, natural form. So why not view our natural form as beautiful as well?
