Life, why are you so ____? (insert any adjective ever)
And carrot cake smoothie bowl, why are you so yummy? 👅
I mean, seriously, why? and how? This is nothing more than a few carrots, some pineapple, a dusting of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla, and a handful of greens whirred up in a blender for a minute or two — and yet, it’s sososo much more. It’s CARROT CAKE in healthy bowl form. It’s vegetables. It’s yourself feeling really awesome sitting around on the couch watching your binge show of the month and getting your inner rawkstar glow on. WHILE EATING CARROT CAKE. Topped with pistachios and toasted coconut because that’s how we doooo.
Totally, I hear you. There is a time and place for real carrot cake.
There is also a time and place for figuring out how to get life’s chaos under control. For me lately, that’s coming in the form of late night carrot cake smoothies instead of cookies and more cookies, and really really reeeeally trying not to take on every project, every day (HA HA says my fingers as they type YES I WOULD LOVE TO to yet another email about something) (HA HA says my brain as it does a manual override on the urge to do to0 much). Never mind. I just literally wrote that out loud. Please kick me off the internet already.
Is this too much? Am I just always talking about the mystical art of balance that seems just always barely out of reach? Is this just me? I’m… I don’t know. I’m sorry. I feel like I’ve been a broken record about this, like, forever, and the irony of it is that I’m my own boss. What am I even doing?
(Carrot cake smoothie bowl posts are as good as any for a come-to-Jesus moment, right?)
