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
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.
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.
