No cavities

Yesterday was rough. I felt like I got hit by a bus in the morning, was nauseous from lack of sleep I believe, and couldn't even drink my coffee. Then, Tanzi the cat saw a centipede on the wall behind me as I was eating my breakfast and I just about freaked out. I also didn't have the best day at work and it wasn't because I came back to tons of things to attend to after a little vacation. I'm not complaining, just noting it wasn't the best day overall.

Luckily, today was much better.

This morning, I went to the dentist for my cleaning before I headed to work. I received pleasant comments from my hygienist, such as "I can see you have good home care" or "you've never had braces? Your teeth are so straight and perfect!" That made my day until the dentist came in and looked at the freshly taken x-rays only to say that I had to "watch" two teeth and make sure to floss around those areas a little more than normal. I actually don't mind going to the dentist. Since I stopped drinking massive amounts of soda years ago, I haven't had as many cavities as I used to.


Breakfast was the natural flavor of a Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer. I didn't like this flavor, but still drank it nontheless. Blah. I think Vanilla Chai is winning out as my fav, but I saved the best for last and have the berry flavor to try tomorrow morning before writing my recap post on Friday.

Vega and coffee

Lunch was a Bright Citrus flavored Cascal fermented soda (loved this flavor), the leftover quinoa and Mmm sauce dish I made for dinner last night with some tomatoes from our garden thrown in, and a raspberry Chobani. I found it hard to eat everything because the quinoa really seemed to fill me up.

Around 3, I took a break from my work computer, went by the sunny windows, and read Farm City while eating this Eat. Think. Smile bar.

I'm going to head out on a walk/run around the neighborhood and try to enjoy this cooler weather. I didn't go to the gym, because I wanted to get this particular thing done and I am glad it's behind me so now I can go play outside. :)


Oh and please head on over to Jessica's blog tomorrow to bid on some yummy Trader Joe's products for a cause that means so much to me, the Crohn's and colitis foundation of America. I have colitis and trust me, it's a horrible disease to deal with. I am so happy Jessica is running a race and fundraising money for Crohn's and Colitis. So go bid on some Trader Joe's products tomorrow! Thanks!

She is also hosting a bake sale, which starts on September 16th, so check back then as well.


  1. You always introduce me to the coolest food finds! Vanilla chai sounds delish!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing my fundraiser!! Hopefully we can meet up for brunch soon!!

  3. I swear everyone and their brother {or sister? so far they are all chicks!} are going to the dentist, myself included. I keep seeing blog posts about dentist visits and about six people I work with have been to the dentist in the last two weeks. Weird...

  4. I know, I have noticed that too and should have commented on that fact in my post. Everyone seemed to be going on my b-day last week and that is when I was originally supposed to go!
