Sweet Photo Evidence

Big news on Hump Day!

 

  1. I am now a Foodbuzz Featured Publisher! (Check out the banners to the left… there will be one more to come.)
  2. There is a picture of the jaw breaking fall!!!

 

Here’s the before – this is the “roll out” where we get introduced before the bout begins.

It’s more of a pre-break picture, but it’s an awesome action shot:

Thank you to the talented Basil Gravanis for making this magical photo happen. :)

Annnnnd that’s why I’m drinking a Sweet Potato Smoothie right now.

Yes, I know… I’ve done this before (soooo last season…).  This time I discovered the more sweet potato, the better.

Sweet Potato Smoothie

  • 1/2 baked sweet potato
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 giant handful of spinach
  • 1/4 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • Shake of salt
  • Water + ice to taste

Put it in a blender, smooth it out, and slurp it up!

What’s the worst damage you’ve ever done to your body?  

Any cool scars/pics/proof? I have a pic and lots of soup ideas. :)

    Everything that I know about roller derby stems from that Ellen Page movie. The one that I can’t seem to remember the name of.

    Sweet potato in a smoothie sounds YUMMY!

    I went head-first into a tree when I was little. Thankfully, I wasn’t seriously hurt, as far as I know! Probably should have gone to the ER, lol. Ah, back in the 80s things were different. haha

    [...] U is for something that makes you unique: I’m special just like everyone else!  Maybe having played roller derby? That’s a pretty cool adventure. [...]
