Today i was not to happy to get woke up by one of my managers calling me to tell me that i was going to have to go into work tonight for my on call shift. I just wanted to wake up when my body was ready to! Of course i couldnt fall back asleep afterwards. I then remembered i have to go get some nanners and dates today, and now i had to before work! Off i went on my trek to hadley to Traders Joes and Whole foods. Got my box of 100 bananas, and 21 others that they had out that were spotting :) I also got a bag of kale, i remembered how much i loved it cooked, so i thought i would like it raw. Plus, it has loads of calcium, and im trying to increase that in my daily intake. I then went over to whole foods to get my medjool and deglet dates. I also noticed that they had asian pears, conventional, but i was dying to try one since i never had. I bought one, along with organic celery, 2 mangos, and golden delicious apple. I also purchased a tongue scraper. I went over to the toothpaste/mouthwash section and tried to find a mouth rise i could use every night, and they all had glycerin in it. Is it different if its vegetable derived? is that ok? Im assuming glycerin is glycerin...
I get home eager to try the asian pear. I was expecting a very hard cut, but it was so juicy! I take a bite...and the first thing that pops into my head was "Oh my gosh it tastes just like a blue raspberry freeze pop!" Idk if anyone else thinks that about those, but it was amazing and delicious!!! On my way home i also broke into the kale bag, as i was eating it raw for the first time, i realized it tastes like salty popcorn, with a hint of pepper. I love how i am experiencing such depth of taste with my foods :P !
Off to work i went, and i was there 430-12. I have never made as much money as i did tonight, in one shift, EVER, and definitely not at the other restaurant job i had. I walked out with $195 (made $225 before tipping hostess/bartender). cha ching! It was so worth getting called in, and its the 2nd saturday now that i have been called in. I would work every saturday night if i could! I'll try to pick up as much shifts as i can that night :)
I get home, and my parasite zapper came!!! I couldnt tell u how happy i was to see that little mail package. I then hoped we had 9 volt batteries so i could start using it tonight, and we have a 3 pack!! I cant believe how much im having to move it, tingling after a minute usually, shows how acidic my body is. I cant wait to sleep with it on over night and see how i feel tomorrow :) I also made zucchini pasta for the first time. I like it much better than cucumber because the cucumber is so watery. I made sauce with 1 red pepper and half an avocado. I was avoiding overts, but its my fav pasta sauce. I then threw in a bunch of kale. I finally have found a combination with greens that i LOVE! I really couldnt stand lettuce....romaine, butter was ok, but i just didnt like the taste. Kale to the rescue! I didnt realize until i looked at the bag the kale was in that kale was a wild cabbage. Guess i never wondered what type of green it actually was. I love kale's taste, even just plain. I will have to start experimenting with sauces to put on it that dont have avocado. Maybe some chopped up apple would be a good topper.
I am so ready for bed after tonights long night at work. Gonna finish up my pasta/salad combo, and hit the sheets. Tomorrow i have work again at night, well there goes my whole weekend. All work no play. Atleast now i have friday nights off starting next week, maybe i can actually start having a social life again lol.
