Sprain and Arugula love

Clearly I could not come up with a better title..oh well!

How are y’all. Wow its been ages since we met! Well, blame comcast! I hate them but can’t think of AT&T. Their service is even worse. But any ways, I am back now and back with this…

I tripped while getting off the stairs and fell with my wrist bent beating to the ground. Ouch it hurts.
I think its a sprain cuz there is no swelling but pain on movement, may see the doctor if it does not improve.

Arugula love

I am an obsessive person by nature. If I like something I literally abuse it to the point that I am sick of it. My latest obsession is Arugula. I am in  love with this peppery green. It is so yummy and adds a kick to the sandwich that no other green can.

I am using it in Sandwich,

Arugula
Shrimpy Quinoa
Meaty Artichokes
Peanuts

Yum Yum. I decided to give Arugula a break mainly cuz I don’t want to be sick of it.Clearly shrimps come a close second in my obsessed food list.

And then I made the blog-popular Chocolate Cherry Bomb, I know I am a retard always late in trying stuff. It is a Vegan high protein shake that I found on Kristen’s Raw. Now you know me I can never follow a recipe to the T, hence a bunch of modifications were made.

1/4 cup frozen, pitted cherries
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
1 cup water

Blend. I did not thaw the bananas and cherries, hence they still had the icy texture too it. It was a semi-slushie. It is a great snack when I return from lab as I am all ravenous.

Q. What is your favorite salad base? Lettuce, spinach or something else?

Q. Have you ever fractured any bone? I fractured my foot in high school. I found no better time to be on crutches than high school.

  1. my favorite salad base is spinach! I have been obsessed with arugula lately too- you were smart to stop- I didn’t and got sick of it 😦
    And I’ve never broken any bones. I was always jealous of kids in elementary school who had cool casts that we could sign though! Hope your wrist feels better soon!

  2. oh girl! I hope it feels better. No fun. Beautiful dishes. The greens really brighten them up. I’ve been meaning to try that smoothie- sounds fabulous and has gotten rave reviews.
    Q. What is your favorite salad base? Lettuce, spinach or something else? I like a combination of spinach and romaine

    Q. Have you ever fractured any bone? I broke my hand doing gymnastics in HS!

  3. I hope that your sprain heals quickly!! I adore arugula! It has such a peppery bite to it… I think my favorite salad base is romaine though.

  4. Chocolate cherry bomb! I love it! Best salad base is spinach for sure. I’ve never fractured anything (knock on wood) but I did sprain a wrist once b/c an evil boy pushed me down at the playground b/c he had a crush on me. No joke.

  5. sorry about the sprain! i used to sprain my ankle all the time in h.s. and college…

  6. I am so sorry about the sprain…I’ve done something similar to my wrist more times than I’d like to admit! I’ve also fractured my wrist. I am a walking disaster.

    I love spinach and add it to everything. Spinach is my arugula if you will. 🙂

  7. I am the same way! Right now, I can’t stop eating avocado & tomato toasted sandwiches. I actually tried the sandwich with arugula recently and it was really good! 🙂

  8. Ouch – I hope your wrist feels better soon!

  9. I’m not a huge salad girl but I can definitely appreciate the arugula in a sandwich. I totally do that with spinach and I feel much better eating my carb loaded sandwich 🙂

  10. Hi Priyanka!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog 🙂 Am quite enjoying myself reading all about you, and ur recipes! Sorry about the sprain though… hope you recover soon and are back in the kitchen in no time. Cheers!
