Hey guys! Hope you are all doing well! Today is my Sunday It’s been a busy day though! I spent about an hour and a half at the allergist (more about that in a minute) and then struggled through a trip to Whole Foods. The one I go to is amazing early in the morning. No one’s around and they have a great selection. After like 10:00 it is a disaster zone with idiots running around and leaving their shit all over and standing in the middle with a totally vacant look on their face. So it wasn’t fun or relaxing like it usually is but at least I got a lot of really great stuff.
Let’s check out the haul first:
Scallions, corn, chard, brussels sprouts, onions.
I splurged on some gorgeous cherries and also grabbed a few peaches and nectarines. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. Hopefully it won’t take too long for them to get ripe.
Macro sushi (another splurge), lentils, buckwheat flour, brown basmati rice and some nooch that I added to my little shaker container Great prices on the bulk stuff. Definitely need to continue going in that direction for my grains, beans, and legumes.
Not too bad! I was going to do some prep but it’s so hot the thought of it is making me cringe. I’ll make my quinoa dish on Wednesday morning I think. Luckily the heat is supposed to break this weekend. We lost power for a few hours last night and it was a blessing and a curse. Obviously it was unbearably hot which led to some excessive crankiness on my end. It was also nice though because as most nosy people do, everyone ended up going to their doors to see if everyone else lost power and we ended up sitting outside with our neighbors for about 45 minutes (until the bugs started to eat us alive). Luckily it came back on after a couple of hours so we didn’t have to deal with sleeping like that.
Have you guys ever seen bracelets like these?! They come with all difference charms and in tons of different colors. There are a ton of sellers on Etsy but this bracelet can be found in this store. I’m obsessed with these bracelets and I’m determined to learn how to make them myself! However, since the one above cost a total of $12 including shipping, I decided to order it. I can’t wait to get it! I’ll be making a trip to Michael’s this weekend to try and find the materials I’d need to make my own as well
OK so this morning I went to the allergist. My seventh doctor in two years. For the first time I actually left the doctor with some answers! They did over 30 skin tests for airborne allergens like grass, weeds, trees, common animals, molds, dust mites, etc. Turns out I am allergic to grass and weeds (big reaction to ragweed!), borderline with trees and even slightly allergic to cats. That’s not going to stop me from hanging out with Jack and Eddie. It’s such a relief to know that I’m not crazy and I’m wondering if taking care of these allergies will help my overall general feeling of crappiness. I feel a lot of relief!
Side note: did you realize you could be allergic to cockroaches?! I’m so grossed out even talking about this but the Dr. made a joke about having a pet cockroach after he told me I was slightly allergic to cats and I was like wait what? Lol! They tested me for a cockroach allergy! I didn’t know it was possible but he said it was more prevalent in more urban areas. Apparently I’m not allergic though. I was so grossed out by the whole notion though haha.
Also, just wanted to say it’s been pretty clear that I’ve been cutting back on my posting lately. I noticed that when I felt like I needed to post every day I would have a major spike in anxiety so I decided to cut it back. My goal is to post three days a week: Monday grocery hauls, Fun Fridays and at least one post showing some meals that I ate. It’s been working out so far and I feel good about it. And if I feel the urge to post more I will
So that’s all I’ve got for you today!! I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and the start of the week has been a good one!
