Day 4: fruit. fruit. fruit.

Luckily today I had a day with zero plans because if I step foot outside of this house i would have quit.

But I woke up around noon so minimize the numbers of being away and hungry. Had more grapefruits and bananas. (On a side note i really love grapefruits now, when in my whole 26 years of living I HATED them.)

Made another salad, now I’m just eating it all quickly because its probably going to spoil soon if i don’t finish it now. I then juiced a big bowl of broccoli, spinach, arugula, frozen mangos, strawberries and bananas. Frozen fruit are frozen in its prime ripeness and blends up really well. The outcome … it didn’t look pretty but it tasted good and I’m glad the huge supply of vegetables are dwindling down.

Last night I couldn’t sleep so I made a list of everything I’m going to cook next week.

Also, I’m going back to Barcelona on March, but this time will be different. No work, No relaxing, I’m going on a determined food trip. (not that it isnt normally, be prepared to wet your pants)
