I love it when you call me Green Monster

January 22, 2011

Apparently I’m channeling Notorious B.I.G. today.  I blame my hip hop poetics class and our weekly rhyme competition.  This is the part where I brag about how we have a weekly contest to see which classmate can bring in the best hip hop song to share with the class and then we vote and the winner advances to the final tournament which will be held during the last week of class.

Cool, huh?  Biggie won this week.

Alright, alright get to the Green Monster already.

I was careful this time and avoided making a mess like this one.  I did knock over the blender and spill half my almond milk on the floor but that’s easily cleaned up so it doesn’t count…

Chocolate Kale Green Monster:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • handful of kale
  • a few ice cubes (optional)

Add ingredients and blend away, my friends.

It was difficult not to suck this down in one sip.

By the way, that god awful pony tail I’m rocking has become my daily hairstyle because my hair is so damn static-y right now I can’t seem to do anything but put it up and out off of my face.  Ugh!  I’m googling “what to do with static hair” as we speak.

I might resort to carrying a dryer sheet around with me and whipping it out in class.

I’ll welcome any tips with open arms.

I’ll also accept processed foods with open arms.  Not the ones your thinking of though.  I’m talking food processor processed.

That would be vegan nacho cheese and kale pesto.  I’m not going to post the “cheese” recipe because I was pretty disappointed in the fact that it didn’t taste like any kind of cheese, let alone nacho cheese.  Bummer 😦

And as for the pesto, I’ll wait to see how it tastes before I recommend it to you but I can tell you it smelled like heaven while I was making it.  I may or may not have removed the center piece of my food processor and put my nose above the hole so I could smell the pesto as it was being processed.  Normal, right?

I’m going to cook up some pasta and throw this pesto on top for dinner.  Yum!

And because one meal with walnuts isn’t enough, I had walnuts in my oatmeal AGAIN this morning.  I’m officially obsessed.

Another obsession?  Power fusion yoga.  Okay, I’ve only been once but I could see myself doing it often.  It’s warm (~95 degrees) and you go through the 26 static postures mixed with some flow.  It was tough.  Not to mention sweaty.  When class was over Beanie said, “My legs were sweaty and I didn’t know legs could sweat!”  Too funny 😛

Oh right, the oatmeal.  See that pool of melty chocolate?

That would be coconut butter mixed with a little cocoa powder.  Best thing ever?  Pretty much.

I’m off to get in a run then slather my hair in olive oil.

Have a good one!

    Power fusion is far and away the best class at Corepower. I feel like I’ve been through the ringer 10 times and born a new woman by the end. A real detox of a sweatfest if there ever was one!

      Perfectly put! I think I’m going again this week. Have you tried restorative yin? It sounds super relaxing.

    Let me see if I can help you a little with that hair problem. First, wash your combs/brushes really well tonight with some warm soapy water and air dry. Do this weekly! Go purchase some of the Downy wrinkle release spray for clothing and spray your combs/brushes with that. It works wonders 🙂 You will have to spritz a few times a week but it does help.
