Super Sunshine Smoothie

Super Sunshine Smoothie (Banana, Mango and Orange)

Before I say anything about this smoothie, I have a question for anyone who goes running:

How do you do it, man?

I’m neither pro-running nor anti-running – there’s no judgement from me – but I just want to understand it. Setting aside all those times at school when we were all forced to run (or swim or whatever), I have tried running a grand total of twice. Both times just sucked. There’s no other way to describe it.

do enjoy walking though.

This is my mind while walking:

It’s such a nice day today! Haha, look at those pigeons! They have the most adorable walk, almost like they’re doing an ‘Egyptian walk’ without the arm movements.

And then this is my mind while attempting to run:

Ah-ha, I’m actually doing it… Oh good lord this is awful! My legs hurt, I can’t breathe properly, I’m tired already…

So really all I want to know is how people do it! Is running genuinely enjoyable for other people, or is it just a matter of willpower?

(As I said, I’m not judging anyone – in fact, I’m super jealous of people who either enjoy or force themselves to go running!)

Super Sunshine Smoothie (Banana, Mango and Orange)

Moving on from that edition of “Claudia doesn’t understand things that everyone else seems to get”, there’s this smoothie! There’s no willpower needed to enjoy this smoothie!

Actually, you will need to clean the blender. But that’s something for future you to deal with.

Easy Vegan Cornmeal Pancakes

Easy Vegan Cornmeal Pancakes

If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be? I’ve been asked that question so many times. Almost as much as the always popular hypothetical, “If you were on a desert island, would you eat meat?” (I’m a vegetarian). But unlike the desert island hypothetical, I…

Peanut Butter and Chocolate 'Butterfinger' Granola

This granola should come with a warning label: Dangerously Addictive! May cause intense desire to stuff face with granola, midnight cravings, and breakfast-related giddiness.

Add in some dark chocolate chips, and it’s just… daaammmnnn! One thing…
