You would think that after living off smoothies for 8 weeks that I would never want to look at, think about or consume another smoothie for the rest of my life. However the exact opposite occurred...I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE smoothies (other blended foods...not so much). I usually start my day... Continue reading

By that I mean The Blender blog is back...the blender used to blend up all my meals is (thankfully) not! First and foremost, HI!! It has been almost a half a year since my last post and since I got my wires off and let me tell you, A LOT... Continue reading

But actually...I have been free for a week and life is good! The transition to normalcy has been a piece of cake (intentional food pun)...the hardest part has definitely been trying to control my urge to eat everything since I haven't had that luxury in a while. Though, I am... Continue reading

You all know how much I loved the wires and having to drink all my meals...not. However, something I did end up LOVING is a blended up apple and peanut butter. I mentioned this before but my mom was the genius behind this one (thanks ma)! Preparation is simple for... Continue reading

You make lemonade! The lemons (wires) have finally been removed. Cue LARGE celebration. I made it. You all made it...thank you for listening to all my rants, rambles, and thoughts over the past 7 weeks. There is no better feeling than when the finally wire is cut and removed and... Continue reading

not the tank...but I am getting out of these wires! (If you don't remember the reference look up Finding Nemo). Anyways...today is the day I AM FREE! I have been waiting for this day for forever (7 weeks to be exact). Surprisingly, unlike the other appointments I can not wait... Continue reading

Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu. Throwback to Julie Andrews and the Sound of Music. I am going to be singing that song on my way to the doctors tomorrow...because tomorrow is the day all becomes right in the world and I am freed from the wires. Slowly... Continue reading

A day late but still "celebrating". Today marks the six week (and a day) anniversary of my wires! What I thought this day would mean six weeks ago is that I would have everything off at the latest (since the doctor told me 4-6 weeks), however that is not the... Continue reading

Here is a recipe of the dinner my mom just made...she added chicken so I guess I kind of lied in the title, but it can 100% be enjoyed without meat. Sweet Potato, Chickpea, Spinach Coconut Curry Don't let the name intimidate or deter you...there isn't any curry in this... Continue reading

Problem being the food coma I was in Saturday...still recovering from it. Food coma means I ate ALOT...a lot of real food I may add. That's right, I had my first BIG big girl meal. Food coma is probably an understatement considering I could barely walk out of the restaurant... Continue reading

AKA welcome back whole food! Each day, little by little I have eaten more whole foods and less blended foods. The other night I had a piece of salmon with mashed avocado and a side of blended veggies. The veggies were a mix of peppers, carrots, kale and zucchini; all... Continue reading

2016 was quite a year. The year of Pokemon GO, snapchat filters, jujuing, and so much more...forgot to mention 2016 was also the year of living through the wire. That one was my (least) favorite. In addition to riding the rollercoaster of ever changing fads, I rode the rollercoaster of... Continue reading

The egg duh! This morning I had my first real breakfast and it was an egg...hence the above bad riddle. My family always goes to this cute mom and pop spot about 5 minutes away from our house; they have great coffee, breakfast and lunch options. The dishes are so... Continue reading

I ate a few noodles last night...yes...whole food...that requires chewing! Since it took me a solid minute per piece of pasta my big moment was short lived. Rubber bands and eating pasta do not go together. Probably for the best since I did not feel too hot after eating it.... Continue reading

BIG NEWS. I actually ordered something at a restaurant...and when I say I, I mean my aunt ordered it for me. Normally my mom is the food pusher when we go out to eat. At every restaurants she asks if I want to order the soup or see if they... Continue reading

First and last time I will ever thank these rubber bands. Last night I got together with all my high school girl friends and we did a cookie exchange. Each one of us made a different type of cookie, then we all got together and exchanged. Since I am still... Continue reading

Since having my jaw wired shut I have found that I no longer snack. Makes sense since I usually always snacked on things like popcorn, crackers, fruit and veggies...all things that require the use of my teeth. Since I am limited to a liquid diet, if I ever wanted a... Continue reading

Hello...its me. I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet...because my jaw is finally (half) free of the wires! I went to the doctors yesterday-he cut the vertical wires holding my top and bottom jaw together and replaced them with rubber bands. So this means that... Continue reading

I am no smoothie connoisseur but I have learned a few tips and tricks over the past month. Here is an OG tip that I religiously do... Freeze smoothie ingredients the night before (or week before) and when you're ready to use just pull them out of the freezer and... Continue reading

I think I have mentioned briefly before that I am a big foodie...but in case you didn't know, I am a big foodie. I follow a ton of cool food accounts that post recipes, must go-to places, pantry must-haves etc. etc. This past summer I lived in New York City... Continue reading

Some days are easier than others. On the days that you just want to throw in the towel, just remind yourself there is a light at the end of the tunnel and your recovery journey is almost over. I have about 5 days until my next doctors appointment and it... Continue reading

Living on a liquid diet for weeks means that the creative juices need to get flowing (earlier rather than later) so you're not limited to drinking chocolate protein, peanut butter and banana every morning for a month. Don't get me wrong I love that combination and could probably drink that... Continue reading

Cue the Friends theme song. Comforting the fact that I'll be behind the wires for another two weeks with this amazing dessert. This recipe is a must try...and its gluten free, grain free and dairy free. This means you can eat the whole thing and not feel bad about it...it's... Continue reading

Sometimes its a snowstorm that delays your flight to your topical vacation, and sometimes its the doctor that delays your ability to consume your body weight in bread...Either way you're getting delayed from where you want to go or what you want to do. Unfortunately, I have to wait a... Continue reading
