Thinking Out Loud

  1. Currently reading: Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War by Mary Roach
  2. It’s been a crazy busy week for me! I’m hoping that the weekend will mean a bit of a breather… but I have my doubts. XD
  3. What are your biggest timewasting sites? I’ve had to block Sporcle for the last couple of days because it makes my productivity nosedive. But awesomely.
  4. Galaxy desserts are a thing! Those macarons.
  5. Oh my goodness, this kitchen grater owl is darling.
  6. Recipes I tried this week:
    Basil & Pear Smoothie Bowl – Vie de la Vegan

    1. Thank you!
      Definitely low calorie– before the sweetener and protein powder, this is only about 60 calories.
      Oh, I agree about the blogs. I’ll give myself 15 minutes to sit down and read them and before I know it, an hour has passed. πŸ™‚

  3. The best protein powder I’ve ever tried is Jay Robb vanilla whey protein. I use a scoop of that with just fruit and water and it’s delicious on its own!
