Rumbly Tummy

in All Posts

Return of the GREEN MONSTER!


I’ve been relying on Amazing Grass for my green smoothie fix, but real GMs are so much better.  Amazing Grass is great in a pinch, though!


My GREEN MONSTER contained:


  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 cup unsweet almond breeze
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon flax


However, the GREEN MONSTER set my tummy off!  I had so many rumbles after drinking it — the kale makes it pretty high in fiber, so I think my stomach was a little shocked!


The other half of my lunch was a hummus sammie:


Which featured this amazing bread:


I topped everything off with some cucumbers for added crunch.


My Friday is officially started — I have to go into my part-time shift for a few hours right now, but all in all, I’m considering it the weekend!  Waaahooo!


My friend Stef (who was one of my bridesmaids) is coming to visit me this weekend.  Stef’s on the left, and my other BFF Beck is on the right.  Aren’t they just gorgeous girls?!


Her boyfriend Jack is coming too and we’re all double dating on Saturday!


What fun things are you looking forward to this weekend?

    Oh fun, fun. I love fun. Your friends are so pretty, of course you said that. As for me, I am going to the Nickelback concert tonight. Mucho excited, if the weather holds. If not I guess I will just dance in the rain.

    Sounds like you will have a fun weekend! My highlight will be my Grandmother's Retirement Party/Potluck!

    I had a very similar sammie (well…wrap) for lunch yesterday. The creamy hummus and crunchy veggies makes a great summer lunch! My boss is having a fancy, schmancy 50th bday party tomorrow night and I'm invited, eek. I'm not sure if I'm excited or nervous about that…TGIF 🙂

    funny, I get tummy rumblies after fiber shock GM too 🙂 yay for visiting bffs! Hope you guys have a blast. I might be going to a friend potluck/game night tonight, and maybe another long bike ride sunday? And of course the usual boring house cleaning and wash stuff 🙂

    I'm visiting with my 6 college roomates this weekend! It should be fun. We haven't all been together in over a year!

  • Mandy July 31, 2009, 10:21 am

    Your friends are gorgeous! 🙂 Have fun on your double date!!

    I have that bread right now, too… LOVE it 🙂

    We are going to get pizza at our fav place tonight and hitting up the new Tasti D'lite! Then doing absolutely nothing but laundry this weekend! 🙂

    I'm definitely looking forward to hobbling onto the beach…cast, crutches & all. Thanks goodness for waterproof casts!! Although swimming in the ocean with a broken leg is probably frowned upon…hah. Oh well, still excited for the sand and sun!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    I am looking forward to my long run this weekend! Unfortunately, the rest of the weekend will be spent studying for finals 🙁

  • starsinthecity July 31, 2009, 11:03 am

    BFF visits are the best! Have a super time! My BFF is coming to town next weekend and we're going on a road trip so I'm looking forward to that. I have some baby and wedding showers this weekend, should be fun!

    I'm looking forward to RELAXING and kind of doing nothing. I have a long run saturday that I'm excited for plus a bloggy meet-up that night. Yoga sunday with the same bloggy friend – should be a good one!

  • Eve July 31, 2009, 12:27 pm

    The color of that green monster is INTENSE! Love it. Hope your tummy feels a bit better. My weekend will have lots of R&R – not much scheduled. But I am working tomorrow, a lot of times my clients like to come in on Saturdays and I do my best to accommodate them.

    That bread looks AMAZING! Is it new?! I have a feeling that sandwich is in my future this weekend! Great combo!
