So I tried out a new recipe from my Vitamix cookbook, a raw vegan beet soup. I was so excited about this one because I loooooove beets, however, there was a bit of an accident. My Vitamix died half way through the blending process. Well, I brought it back to life after giving it an hour or so to cool down so I guess you can say it didn’t really die, it just played possum. I was finally able to make the soup, but I wasn’t too crazy about it. I had some for dinner along with fish and yes, beet greens, but this was not my favorite meal. Some may swoon over the awesome color, texture, and flavors, but I have to admit that I am not a huge fan. I may use the leftovers as side dishes or some sort of sauce, but I won’t be making it again. Sorry, Vitamix!
I’m still getting the late night hungers, but I’m trying to be more strategic about snacking. If water doesn’t fix the issue, then I usually grab something small like yogurt with chia seeds, Cheerios (dry), fruit and nuts, or baby carrots. That usually takes the edge off. The thing is, I know I’m eating plenty of food. Maybe my body just has to get use to not eating junk. Am I still detoxing?
Insanity workout still going strong!

*I also munched on a cup of dried Cheerios while watching Deadwood. Popcorn would be a good choice if I didn’t hate getting pieces stuck between my teeth.
