In case you haven’t guessed, today is my birthday! I celebrated with family, friends, and of course, lots of great food.
Birthdays are one of those things that make you realize just how fortunate you are. Big and small, I couldn’t possibly count all the blessings in my life. In honor of appreciating the little things, I present to you a very thankful What I Ate Wednesday. The only things left out are a MultiGreen Kombucha (my favorite!) and a few ginger chews!
I’m thankful for nut butter and amazing birthday breakfasts like the avocado banana almond butter wrap and a cocoa hemp green smoothie (review to come!) I’m also thankful for the editor tool when I’m too delirious to take a picture with good lighting in the morning:)
I’m thankful for friends (especially when they let you raid their tree of figs to make homemade fig butter!) I added a spoonful to TJ Organic Greek Yogurt for a morning snack
I’m thankful that I have access to healthy foods, particularily big salads with garden lettuce, microgreens, avocado, lentils, mushrooms, roasted vegetables, and tomatoes. (I’m thankful for tupperware that tupperware that doesn’t leak everywhere, too!)
I’m thankful that I live near a Whole Foods- and their gigantic granola bar section! Found a new bar today- Go Take a Hike Raw Vegan energy bar- such much flavor and full of amazing quality ingresients! I also don’t know what I would do without my sister’s patience after I spend 15 minutes perusing the bar aisle.;)
I’m thankful for getting to go out for dinner; for seaweed salads and fresh salmon and crab rolls, for the brown rice option at Kabuki, and i-phones for snapping pics for WIAW.
I’m thankful for organic carrot cake, presents, and most of all, my wonderful and supportive family, who makes everything possible.
All I can say is, I’m one lucky girl.
Have a fantastic rest of your week!
