It’s amazing how long it’s taken me to even partially recap Vegas. Scandalous clubbing pictures aside, all there’s left to show you is some eats from the journey home!
Though I was kind of still full from my pina colada earlier that day, I bought a cup of tortilla soup from the Wolfgang Puck Express in the airport, mostly because it included goat cheese.
In fact, I was quite disappointed when my gentle command of “You can keep plopping that on!” to the serving lady went unheard. Still, it was delicious!
I applaud Frontier Airlines for the free cookie, too 🙂
I’m not too proud of my dining style during my Vegas “recovery day” at home. Meals were bland like this:
(I thought putting it next to the magazine would make my Daiya cheese & salsa tacos look less sad.)
And meals were random like this:
I wanted Shrimp Lo Mein. Badly.
Other bad choices: frosted flakes, cheese dip, tortilla chips, and way too much coconut ice cream.
But it’s ok, because my roomies came home eventually and made crepes!
Sauteed carrots, bell peppers, & onions + goat cheese. x3. plus another crepe with butter & sugar.
Now, despite our brief mishap with pulling floor tiles out..
We’re pretty much back to normal!
I started today with a green monster smoothie. The perfect way to kick off a detox, I do say!
spinach, 1/2 banana, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, almond milk, cinnamon
I actually blended it the night before and stuck it in the fridge overnight. Bad idea! It doesn’t taste the same when it’s not fresh, and I had to add some honey to sweeten it up.
Lunch was a glorious reunion with two standbys: tofu and veggies.
Coconut tofu, mushrooms, water chesnuts, & spinach, sauteed in coconut oil & balsamic vinegar
I took a nap in this same sunny spot following lunch!
I had a loooong afternoon at ballet and then in the gym trying out a new routine (Fitnessista’s 2011 WSU!), so I came home in dire need of protein. I looked for the greek yogurt…
But I made the mistake of having one of my male roommates pick it out at the store, and he got the “traditional” variety that has not a lot of protein and lots more fat. I don’t know if I’ll get around to eating this, since protein is such a huge part of why I eat greek yogurt!
I opted for more tofu and an orange instead.
I packed dinner to eat while doing reading later on! Making to-go meals is kind of fun.
Sauteed carrots, snap peas, mushrooms, & goat cheese with olive oil & balsamic vinegar
See? Detox. It’s on.
I leave you with photos of another rugby 21st birthday party!
(February is full of them, and I’m not complaining!)
The birthday girl making good choices.
Shots. (the resulting face)
^And me, somewhere in the center of it all 🙂
I hope everyone had a good Presidents’ Day! Did y’all get the day off, and if so, how did you spend it?
Still class for me (although I did just get a break, so I can’t complain!); the only sign of the holiday was that my ballet teacher was decked out in American flag pictures and colors 🙂
