comin’ in late but hot.
after several months i finally feel like i have my breakfast mojo back. intermittent fasting has been pretty hard for this old diabetic. first and foremost i’m fucking hungry when i wake up. ugh. want to punch any and all who say…”i don’t even notice anymore!! i can go til 1 pm before i even NOTICE i’m hungry.” here are two enthusiastic middle fingers right into your smug face.
well praise be and bless-ed day but i think i have finally cracked the code.
and here it is: i don’t have to get up at 6 am because it’s summer. i can and usually do sleep til about 7:30, 8 if i’m lucky. so i wake up and eat a tiny bit of watery fruit (melon usually) just bc it’s best to eat fruit on an empty stomach and i’m not really eating a bunch just a smidge so i don’t think i’ve technically broken any fast situation. then i go for some coffee and then i work out at about 9:30. it’s amazing how an hour long sweaty workout will actually curb your appetite. then i shower, then i eat. and i go for a big bowl of oatmeal and that goes something like this:
1'/2 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
a pinch of salt
a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1 cup of coconut milk
cook all together for about 10 minutes or until desired consistency. then i put in a teaspoon of ghee. fat is filling and ghee is like candy butter.
i then add a small handful of nuts (either pumpkin seeds or walnuts or pistachios..whatever) to a bowl
followed by a fruit….either a few chopped dates or a small handful of raisins or 1/4 banana or what i have that’s ripe and ready, sometimes it’s a peach or a nectarine or a few fresh figs.
i then pour the oatmeal on top and add a drizzle of agave and stir. then eat. so good. so filling. honestly it’s really fucking delicious.
this entire breakfast goes down about 11 am. i am good til about 1:30. then i eat a teeny tiny lunch. which usually consists of a slice of toasted sourdough with smashed avocado and everything but the bagel seasoning from TJ’s with a squeeze of lemon topped with a few slices of whole foods roasted turkey.
it’s all very healthy and i feel very good about life with this new me.
i’d love to hear what y’all eat that makes you feel virtuous yet full.
moving right along…
this caftan comes in 3 colors and is under 30 bucks. ordered the red want all 3. i’ll report on quality. we’ll all go from there.
i don’t know what a perfect dress is but i would imagine it’s pretty close to this one. i’m not sure if you could find a more flattering, breathable, affordable dress anywhere. i’m ordering the black and the oatmeal. but i wouldn’t pick a fight with the coral.
calling this as my autumn lewk. platform boots are where it’s at this fall.
i fallen into the rabbitiest of rabbit holes with the work of surrealist artist maruja mallo.
inspiring me to no end.
and finally let’s all watch an obsessive compulsive disorder in action.
no but really i’m here for it.
