After 15 hours of sleep total (not consecutive) and 8 cups of fresh ginger tea, I am feeling much better. I just rested, took a lot of vitamins, drank a lot of liquids and I think that’s all I needed.
I was really looking forward to a blog event scheduled in San Diego this weekend, but unfortunately I had to cancel. I was bummed about that, but my health is priority. there will be other opportunities in the future.
Sweet and Salty for breakfast today.
– Oatmeal cooked with chia seeds and mashed bananas
– Mix-ins & toppings –> cottage cheese + granola+ peanut butter + pear jam
I took my medicine and vitamins after breakfast and went back to sleep.
Around lunch time, I wasn’t hungry but I wanted to get nutrients in my body.
Quick and easy snack. Smoothie in a bowl.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 very ripe banana
- 1 scoop Vega Whole Food Healthy Optimizer, Vanilla flavor
- 1 scoop Amazing Grass Chocolate Green Superfood
I drank this under the sun. I had to keep the cold and warmth balance.
Spooned, sip, sip, sip and it’s all gone. A day’s worth of veggies and nutrients all in one bowl.
Next meal was an egg white sandwich with cheese on Thomas bagel thins and a side of baked fries.
Dinner will be hot wonton soup. Take out is what’s on the menu tonight.
Wedding Diary Update
Wow, 2 days in a row I’m blogging about wedding plans. What can I say, I’ve had plenty of time on my hands. Well, I’m resting with a purpose and doing wedding planning on the side.
In the afternoon, I worked a few hours on wedding planning while resting on my bed. I am working with a few vendors right now, one of them being a monogram design.
I was just sent version #1 and I think it still needs a little tweaking before we finalize and start using it for wedding materials. I’m actually going to use this for a few DIY ideas I have on mind.
I am planning to share all the DIY projects I’m doing for the wedding, but I will probably post about them after the wedding. My friends and family read the blog and I would like to have them see it first at the wedding before I share them all with you. I am customizing a lot of things. Really fun stuff!!!
Cakes, cakes and more cakes
Being that my wedding will be in a private beach miles away from home at an exotic location, I will not have the luxury of having a bakery nearby to bake me up a 5 tier cake with all the bells and whistles that I can imagine.
My cake will be more simple, it will be made with local ingredients and decorated with local flowers. Typical wedding cake but with a destination wedding twist.
Here are some inspirations that I will be sending to my wedding coordinator. I like them all 🙂
(loved the hula girl and boy on the bottom of the cake….so cute!)
I’m looking for a cake that is simple, decorated with tropical flowers and has a beautiful presentation.
What was your favorite wedding cake flavor?
There are so many combination that I can choose from. I am debating between chocolate cake or vanilla cake with fruit layers. Unfortunately, coconut was not an option. I’m keeping it simple and classic so that everyone can enjoy them.
