This is what I came home to:
Apparently my hot water heater went bad while I was at work and leaked all over my floor and down the wall of the unit below mine. Lovely.
Soooo… I was going to have a recipe for you today, but that will have to wait for tomorrow.

I made a smoothie. It was green…
The flavor was Strawberry-Basil. I wouldn’t recommend it. In fact, I didn’t even take a pic. Last week’s Banana-Maple-Ginger was much better:
Clearly I’m addicted to collard green wraps… but this week’s was different! I used a Mexican-inspired hummus in it! That hummus is the recipe that was coming today but will instead come tomorrow. The flood took away my picture-taking light.
My co-workers and I took out lunch outside. They appeared skeptical of my ”wrap,” but I offered a bite and it was met with a reasonable amount of approval.
I have discovered I like to eat constantly throughout the day. I snacked it up all afternoon. Unpictured are some cashews, pineapple, and my daily kombucha.
Pictures below is cottage cheese with nuts, apple, lavar, and some rice cakes.
I had a fancier plan, but the flood changed it… however, this lentil salad wasn’t bad for a late dinner in a hurry!
In the mix was French green lentils, pepper jack Daiya cheese, broccoli sprouts, beets, shallots, celery, olive oil, lemon juice, basil, and S&P. Translation: I scavenged my fridge.
This was seriously the highlight of my day. The picture doesn’t look like much, but let me assure you… this was hard-core deliciousness. It tasted like one of my favorite childhood cereals - Cocoa Krispies.
Cocoa Krispies Protein Pudding
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1 T carob powder
- 1/4 C cereal
- 3/4 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 6-7 drops vanilla stevia
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
Mix together all ingredients in a bowl, pressing down slightly to break up cereal a bit. Place in fridge for 15-20 minutes to allow liquid to soak in.
Remove from fridge, stir, and devour.
Thank you all so much for the comments about my tattoo yesterday. It is a really special piece to me.
Who do you call when things break at your house? I had a moment of panic wondering what my next move should be!
