I woke up to an extra special delivery!

Mix 1 sent me a case of smoothies to try! I had tried these before at the Denver Marathon, and really liked them – so I am very excited to try all the different varieties.

This company is local (Boulder, CO) and has some pretty good stats:

If you, like me, are wondering what Luo Han Guo is, check it out…it is a longevity fruit from China, and is apparently 300 times sweeter than sugar. I like sweet things.

I’ve yet to try any of my new shipment, but I assure you that I will let you know when I do.

For breakfast, I had cake and coffee, before an hour long skype date with my best friend.

If you’ve read my about pageyou already know that I think cake is a perfectly legitimate choice for breakfast.

Best mug of all time, given to me by one of my oldest and dearest friends. (Hi Christine!)

Around lunctime, I snacked on some sweet potatos – sliced thinly, seasoned with salt, garlic, and chili powder and cooked at 400* for about 30 minutes.

Colorful day of eats, no?

Then, the best part of the day…my parents came over to make pizza!!

Daddy’s homemade crust

workin’ hard…

spinach, chicken, onions, green peppers, mozzarella, basil

More colorful deliciousness.

My mama baked a cake. If there was ever any question as to where I inherited my sweet tooth, here she is…

The cake was so simple. Just four ingredients: egg whites, cocoa, powdered sugar, cinnamon. That’s all.

Before cooking


Incredible. What’s better than homemade pizza, chocolate cake, and family??
