let’s just cut to it, k?
i just need to know..
is it so wrong to consider giving up men for the rest of my life and commit myself to a food product?
i swear almond butter gives me wings.
and butterflies <3
i’ve been finding an excuse (as if i needed one) to put it on everything
ev. er. ry. thing.
and my fingers will forever be stained with almond butter remnants
<--- high protein banana ‘biscotti’ slathered in almond buttaz (not my best but i will share the recipe if you want!)
and it makes my two part breakfast split just that much better.
you see, since i work out so early, and i get to work and never know what’s going to be thrown at me i’ve started to split breakfast into two parts
the summer heat makes me crave smoothies like a nympho craves you know what & so as a post workout/getting dressed/en route to le office breakfast i’ve been rolling with a smoothie of some sorts
today’s pretty much rocked my face off
- optimum nutrition banana cream protein powder
- almond milk (vanilla)
- chilled coffee
- dry oats
- trader joe’s blueberry flaxseed
- ice, stevia & guar gum
thanks to the addition of blueberry flaxseed & dry oatsof which i would dedicate my soul to if i hadn’t already committed myself to almond butter
*i added the dry oats & blueberry flaxseed into the smoothie after i blended it, then let it sit in the fridge ala naomi for about 10 minutes to thicken up. texture = A+++
daddy’s make things possible <3
BIG gulp. i have drinking issues. one minute it’s there. the next?
and then after my smoothie guzzling stomach ache disappears i’ll have my mid-morning breakfast part deux when i get a free few minutes at the office
it works perfectly.
my recent breakfast part deux obsession?
egg white puff + cooked quinoa + almond butter globs + some added tj’s grindin’
amazing. i haven’t even had oats in 3 days! uh what.
when i’m not making sweet passionate love to a jar of nut butter you can find me getting dirty
you pretty much need to try this quad focused lower-body/plyos workout i did this morning.
i left a sweaty BEAST. so sweaty & nasty looking that the only hope for me is 99% likely going to be found in an almond butter jar

cawfee tawk! what are you making a life-long commitment to these days? are you a commitment phobe? or are you good at commitments? me? ugh i SUCK at commitments, seriously i run from anything that i feel like i have to lock myself into. <—potential problem for future men-relationships? probably. guess that’s while i’ll have to stick to almond butter!
