For the past week I have been feeling POOOOOOOOPED!
BIG. SLEEPY. MONDAY. EYES. Too bad this was on Friday! :)
Wednesday and Thursday night I stayed up WAY too late, and by Friday morning it had all caught up with me. And even today, I feel like I can’t recover!
I have been living on this:
(The dark temptress!!) and this:
Which is probably a main factor in why I still feel so run down. Caffeine is a vicious cycle. Just when I think I’ve kicked my Diet Coke habit, I have a moment of weakness.
And technically the Steaz wasn’t my fault! I went to Whole Foods to get a delicious Kombucha only to find a ton of apple juice in it’s place. Apparently kombucha is being pulled from shelves because it has been found to have more alcohol than labeled on the bottle. (Which is probably why I like it…)
Funny thing about feeling like crap, I don’t feel like cooking. I literally didn’t eat supper Thursday or Friday. And if you know anything about me, you know that I LOVE food!! It’s nights like those that make you wish you could just grab a sandwich or some chicken tenders on the go. But the next day I’m super glad that I’m gluten free and can’t easily give in to cravings. So tonight I pulled myself out of the funk to make two dishes I’m currently crazy about.
Local Bounty Salad:
Ripe Tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market, Chapel Hill Creamery Farmer’s Cheese, and Basil from Parrish’s garden. Tossed with Balsamic, salt, and fresh cracked pepper!
Fresh. Tasty! Fast.
Followed up with:
Crispy BBQ tofu! I prepared the tofu the same way as in this recipe, but instead of the pineapple glaze I tossed with:
Love it! I honestly think I could eat Moore’s on everything. I love the smoky sweetness!
************ Now if I can just find some energy to clean the kitchen! :)
