If you follow me on Instagram, you probably picked up on the fact that I did a 3-day juice cleanse this week. We’ll talk more about that later this week, but this was my first real breakfast last week. I threw it together Wednesday night out of necessity – what could I whip up that was vegan (because you don’t want to not eat dairy/meat for three days and suddenly reintroduce it) and still full of protein and yummy and could feel like a real breakfast?
Speaking of going vegan because I love irony, California lifted the foie gras ban! On the last day of my juice cleanse! You better believe I vaguely thought about trying to go get foie gras that night before PETA or some asshole lobbyist ruined it again for the rest of us. Speaking of which, I could never be interested in a boy who didn’t know what foie gras was. A also said once a girl not knowing what foie gras was would be a deal breaker. Luckily we both believe in eating force-fed goose liver.
I wish I had more for you today in the word department but I’m at a loss. A combination of the Sunday blues/other things on my mind has me dealing with a slight bit of writer’s block. So just go make this parfait and then enjoy it and tell me how much you did.
