How to cure a headache:

I woke up feeling okay, but after 30 minutes on the elliptical, a slack TurboKick, and a shower, I had a headache that continued after work. I took a nice 2 hour nap.

However, that did not prevent me from stopping by the store for some supplies. I went to Mother's Market to get some Zevia and saw donuts in the dessert case.

The baked vegan donuts must be new. They were in the fridge but I was surprised how good they were. I liked the chocolate one more than the coconut. I was shocked that they were only 50 cents apiece. :) I hope they'll last (in the fridge) so they can be my dessert of the week.

Lunch was the same yummy homemade breakfast burrito. After work, I had an apple with peanut butter. For dinner, I rolled with a Blogilates' meal-plan inspired sweet potato.

I'm not following the plan though, but I already eat foods like it.

One of the things I picked up at the store after work was Cool Whip. At one time, I would take containers of the sugar-free Cool Whip out of freezer and eat it like ice cream.

When Love Veggies & Yoga had this simple recipe on her blog, I had to make it: Caramel Pumpkin Whip Dip. I am definitely putting it in the freezer to make it "ice cream" though it's also delicious as a dip... or by the spoonful because I couldn't take time away from the dip to cut an apple. :)

The caramel definitely hardened and now I have swirls of caramel in my pumpkin "ice cream!"

Because I didn't use a lot of pumpkin, I had enough leftover to stir it into my remaining Fage 0%.

Also extremely delicious, and I can totally eat it for breakfast! :)

I need to return a movie and read, but I'm totally sucked into "The Sing-Off!" It's hip hop week and fun to watch all these different types of groups with their heart-warming stories.

  1. Oh I am so glad you liked it and glad you were able to use some yogurt, too. We used pumpkin + cool whip in about a 1:1 ratio as well as the other ingredients and froze that. It was the best "ice cream" in recent memory. Enjoy your breakfast :)
