soft food diet

My Oprah moment: favorites

Hello! I feel like I should immediately give the disclaimer that you will not receive any of the things that I mention in this post because unfortunately, I am not Oprah. I’ve just had some time (lots of time) to reflect on the things I’ve enjoyed this summer. These will all change in the fall/winter because TV shows end, my skin becomes more dry (yet still oily), and I probably eat 1,000 more calories to guard myself from the harsh wind.

Favorite TV show (to binge watch): 30 Rock 

I had yet to find a show that made me laugh as much as Family Guy. This seems more mature because it’s people and not cartoons. That’s what growing up is all about.

“Hey, nerds! Who’s got two thumbs, speaks limited French, and hasn’t cried once today? This moi.”

 Final book pending…

**If you’re feeling judge-y just keep in mind that I needed light post surgery. And you’re also a jerk because at least I read. And yes, I have a Tina Fey thing.

Favorite smoothie recipe: Refreshing


I’ll leave the amounts of things up to your discretion. That’s the beauty of a smoothie.


Favorite  sweet yums:

I make this all the yummy and you can "experiment" with it using different ingredients!: 20160811_130710

Favorite other yum: (Just so happens to also be sweet) 

Yums that require no real baking, intense cooking or talent: (And are also “soft diet” approved)

Eggs- any way, any how i ❤ an egg. Hard, soft, ooey and gooey. Although QUESTION: When did egg whites become “a thing”? Is the yolk too delicious? Along with my gluten free sentiments, pass me your yolk and I will have your gluten for you too if it must be so.

Avocado– Apparently there is an avocado crisis of some sort because of the realization of the awesome powers within the avocado, but I am surely not the cause of it. It’s all you avocado toast people. #toast #basic #pfff. I prefer a squirt of lemon juice, salt, lime. Or just straight up.

Tofu- May weird some people out. It’s a texture thing and I totally get it because I have it with mushrooms and most peppers not prepared by me. I’ve actually always picked tofu over chicken on my Thai food. Something comforting and easy about the squish of it.

Salmon– 425, foil,  olive oil, lemon slices, throw a dash of your fave spices (for me that is paprika and pink himalaya salt) 25 minutes (I think) melt in yo mouf.

Sweet potato– 425, foil, fork it, olive oil it, 45 min and that’s it. Don’t ruin it with anything else. If you must, butter it.


Favorite words and conclusion:


Finally, I leave you with this video that I feel like I really relate to, even though we have nothing in common (not a model born in France that smokes). But I just get her want to be well. Whatever that means. It resonates with me right now.
