Running very late today. Happy Hump Day!
Iâ€™ve been on an insane smoothie kick for the last month or so, but this morning, I finally felt burnt out on berries. This smoothieâ€™s base was actually pumpkin, hence the lovely orange hue.
In the blender:
1 container vanilla Greek yogurt
1/4 cup soy milk
1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon salted caramel sauce
5 ice cubes
The salted caramel brought it all together quite nicely. With some toast for chew.

I spotted this humorous article in the New York Times this morning and thought the vegans, vegetarians, or even flexitarians would enjoy itâ€¦
My favorite part, â€œThere was the meal at the Golden Ox steakhouse (baked potato), Stroudâ€™s fried chicken (rolls) and Arthur Bryantâ€™s barbecue, where, searching for vegetarian options on the menu, skipping over the lard-bathed French fries, pausing to consider the coleslaw, I ordered the safest option (a mug of Budweiser).â€ Hah! Sometimes, beer is the best choice.
I know Iâ€™m lucky to live in a relatively veg-friendly city (Charlotte is land oâ€™BBQ but there are some good vegetarian options out there), and also have a supportive family. My 93 year-old grandpa sometimes gives me hell for being a vegetarian, but heâ€™s old so itâ€™s allowed.
Are your eating habits out of step with your familyâ€™s or communityâ€™s? How do you deal? Besides beer, of course.
