Running very late today. Happy Hump Day!
I’ve been on an insane smoothie kick for the last month or so, but this morning, I finally felt burnt out on berries. This smoothie’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 it…
My favorite part, “There was the meal at the Golden Ox steakhouse (baked potato), Stroud’s fried chicken (rolls) and Arthur Bryant’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).” Hah! Sometimes, beer is the best choice.
I know I’m lucky to live in a relatively veg-friendly city (Charlotte is land o’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 he’s old so it’s allowed.
Are your eating habits out of step with your family’s or community’s? How do you deal? Besides beer, of course.
