PCS, Protein Pleasure, and iPhone

Clever title, eh?! I am just exhausted beyond whatever is humanly possible and I think I used my last two braincells sometime last week. The movers finally brought our things. I have been trying to unpack and get our life together. Being the food-obsessed savvy girl I am, my kitchen was the absolute #1 thing on my list to unpack. I just wanted to produce something, anything. I haven't cooked or made something in a while and my true self was just longing to stir/blend/chop/grill something...ANYTHING! I feel much better since the kitchen is unpacked and functional. Today I am in love with my blender. That little gem is the reason for my lunch today. I made my absolute favorite protein shake.

Today, I will call her Purple Pleasure! She is delicious, filling, and refreshing. I have her whenever I want to replace a meal, this mostly happens with breakfast. Aside from love, here's what she's made of...

1/2 Banana
1/2 cup Strawberries, 1/4 cup Blueberries
Add more or less of each. Sometimes, my shake looks more pink than purple. Either way, it's still yummy for my tummy!

2 Scoops
This is my favorite protein powder so far. It's not gritty and it's just kind of everything I want. I first found it at Trader Joe's. Now I buy it at Vitamin Shoppe since there isn't a Trader Joe's where I live...BOOO!!! Read more about Aria here.

8-12 oz.
I LOVE Almond Breeze Almond Milk! The powder calls for 8 oz of fluid but I typically add more because of the frozen berries. Learn from my mistake, not adding enough fluid will cause your blender to fry and die! Also, I use either the original flavor or vanilla flavor of the almond milk. It just depends on what is open in the refrigerator.
Don't ask me what the calorie count is. I don't count calories. My concern is that I am getting good food in my body and that I am getting enough protein to sustain me. If you come up with variations of this recipe, please share with me. I'd love to try your version(s)!

Even though I'm home and FUNemployed, lunch has to be quick because I am still surrounded by this...


and this...

and this.

My life is a shit storm of cardboard boxes and packing paper. I swear, I'm just waiting for a body to show up in one of these boxes because I don't recall having this much shit. Oh and the picture above, yeah that's our "guest bedroom." There was barely enough room for me in there to take the picture. I wish we could just burn everything and start over from scratch. Shit!

In better news, the Mr. and I got out a bit this weekend and got me a new toy! Minds out of the gutter...I gots me an iPhone!

Me is happier than a...

Until next time, friends. Be well.

Yay!!! I loooove our iphone. LEt me know if you want any ideas for time consuming apps... haha!

Try putting an ad on craigslist and see if anyone wants those boxes... it's quicker than tossing them or recycling :) I DREAD all those damn boxes again!! I swear, I just brought out a huge box full of cardboard yesterday and we've lived here 8 months. That's just wrong! LOL!

I make shakes all the time too... A great way to get more vitamins and some veggies is to add a handful of spinach. I promise you can't taste it at all!
i am so jealous of your iPhone.. I can't wait to get mine! ")
