Raw Zucchetti and my first Giveaway!!

June 16, 2009

Sorry for such a late posting this evening but I have been busy all day working, collecting stuff for all of you, and then filling out a horrendously long application that decided to crash twice. GRRRR!!! I started my morning with my usual fresh juice but mixed with the Amazing Greens powder instead of the superseed and man did it keep me full! I didn’t really like how the berry flavor overpowered my fresh juice so I’m going to try the plain mix in tomorrow, but I did enjoy how full and energized it kept me all morning!

I had a regular old Tuesday morning at work, it was rainy so people were kind of grumpy. I sat down for a few minutes after my shift and refueled with a blue green monster that was “gasp!” in a Starbucks, not Caribou cup, I got a lot of crap from my co-workers for my travel mug of choice, but hey, it was the only thing big enough to hold my vitamin packed monster in the morning!

Then I was off on a secret mission to none other than Trader Joes!! I was so excited about it all morning, making a list of the goodies I would get! I perused up and down the dry grocery aisles for almost and hour and thoroughly discussed with the managers what their top picks would be and favorite items were. Thus brings me to my exciting announcement of my first ever giveaway!

To be entered, 1)Ā  just leave a comment of how I can continue to improve my blog and what you would like to see, and for a second entry 2) link on your blog back to my page! The winner will be announced on Sunday and receive this wonderful bag filled with a bountiful of surprise goodies (to be revealed on Sunday as well, if I don’t devour them first :p )

Please forgive my lack of photogenics, I have been up since 4am. So let me know what you want to see, how I can improve and link me to your blog, and get some great TJ goodies!!!!!

I came home and started working on this application for work that ended up taking me most of the afternoon. It’s mostly just formalities but I do have to pass some testing for the promotion that my boss would like to give me so *cross fingers*!!!

For dinner I wasn’t really sure what I wanted and I guess you could say it was 70% raw. I julienned zuchinni and mixed it italian herbs, diced tomatoes and a few sliced portobello mushrooms. I lightly warmed two slices of basil and garlic polenta in olive oil and topped with with sun dried tomatoes. Then I took one of my sunburger patties and turned it into three “sun balls” that made a great protein topping for my raw zuchetti!!Ā  This meal turned out incredible, I’m very much enjoying the sunburger recipe in all shapes and sizes!

Well, I need to get to bed earlier tonight, 4am is going to come far too soon. May angels keep you all!

    I concur with VeggieGirl – the blog looks great. Just be yourself.

    Loved your dinner. Whenever I try to do raw, it usually ends up at about 70% as well. šŸ™‚

    Trader Joe’s…one of my favorite places in the whole world. Great giveaway!

    I agree, keep posting pictures. Maybe make your font a little bigger or space things out a little more so it’s easier to read. I’ll link to your giveaway in my blog post tonight. Thanks for the comment šŸ™‚

    Hi! I got here from Rosey Rebecca and I think your blog is cool. I’m also new to blogging so I’m still learning. It would be nice to have an ‘Archives’ list at the side. Other than that, your blog is great. šŸ™‚

    Hi! I got here from Rosey Rebecca. I think your blog is great. Adding an ‘Archives’ section at the side will be nice I think. I’m new to blogging and still need to learn much more of those stuff. šŸ˜›

    I am on your blog for the first time as I was guided over here by RoseyRebecca. I think your blog looks great! And I agree with the girls… Keep posting pics cause that’s what everyone loves and just keep writing about what interests y ou. Everybody’s blog is tailored to their own personalities which is what makes the blog world so great. Many of us are linked by the love of food but when we add our own personalities, lives, and tastes that’s what makes other people come to your blog! Have fun blogging!

    May Canadians enter? I think your blog looks good, but one small change I’d like to see is easier access to the archives.
