I’m a Nut!- BIG NEWS
Yes, I’m sure you already knew that I’m a bit quirky.
But I bet you didn’t know that….
I can eat nuts and sesame!
I’m not allergic!
Now I can eat: Pecan Butter, Peanut Butter, Cashew Butter, Walnut Butter, Almond Butter, Pistachio Butter, Falafel, Hummus. etc. Can we say shopping trip?
This morning I went to the Allergist. But I’ll save that story for later. Leave ya hanging a bit.
I made my sister one of those Dough Boy smoothies yesterday because she just couldn’t bring herself to get that tooth out.
The poor thing couldn’t chew anything, so I mixed two packs instant oatmeal, a scoop of my strawberry froyo and some milk.
She didn’t finish it.
So I did. Crime? Heck no.
So I did. Crime? Heck no.
I had it with my current favorite: toast with my new wonder spread: Sweet potato, Greek yogurt, SNB, cinnamon and this time I added some oats for some more carbs (I’m having a bit of trouble with these). Mix and spread!
G can sure put on a pout. She crawled on the floor and talked with her teeth clenched so her tooth wouldn’t dangle.
Gosh I was glad when she came to me while she was doing her homework with the largest smile- with tooth in hand!! I’m so glad the thing is out. I’d previously told my mom that I was going to go in there while she was asleep and yank the thing out myself but I guess the word got to her. She yelled at my last night from upstairs; “Hannah! You’d better not come and pull it out while I’m asleep!” I laughed.
and restrained myself.
I’ve got a great picture of her with the tooth, but my camera batteries are both dead. Tomorrow you’ll get to see her smiling face. Boy is she a cutie!
My foot injury has come back. Only this time I’m pretty sure it is tendonitis or something, because it throbs when I’m sitting and hurts when I put weight on it. My Dad took a look at it as well and said that is probably what it is. So I’m wearing my ace bandage again and heating it with a hot corn bag as I sit here. Poo. I’d hoped to go running or long-walking.
So back to the allergist. All he did was ask me a bunch of questions and prick me for all nuts and sesame. We waited 20 minutes in the waiting room while I wasn’t allowed to itch.
yeah. good luck with that.
I did a good job of distracting myself and when 20 minutes was up the allergist looked at my arms and found one of them to be all welted up.
No Nutella for me. Thank goodness I find it too sweet. Chocolate SNB holds my chocolate top place. Although I can’t say I’ve ever tried Dark Chocolate Dreams…
We went to the grocery store, of course, to buy all sorts of things that I thought I couldn’t eat before.
So when I got home, I had an idea…
I know! I’ll try Peanut Butter for the first time!
Verdict: I like it, but SNB and SSB still hold firmly at the top of my list. I think I’m going to have to keep trying it.
I basically sampled it with everything in my kitchen for lunch. Verdict there is that it goes well on everything. Typical for nut butters
We got great loot at the grocery store!
This isn’t all of it, of course. But it is all the exciting things. The usuals like carrots, broccoli, peppers, lettuce, etc, aren’t listed.
I’m more concerned about….
Bear Naked Vanilla Almond Granola -I had a great free coupon for this through Stonyfield Rewards!
Kashi GoLean cereal- I’ve missed this stuff SO BADLY! and 13g protein? I’d forgotten what a nutrient bomb this stuff is.
Stonyfield plain- for yogurt cheese, of course- I had a coupon for this as well.
Cabot Greek Yogurt, vanilla- My sibs want more froyo. This one will be raspberry flavored. To come!
2 Okios plain Greeks- I had more free coupons for these. Good thing, because they were originally $5.79 each!
Parsnips! Eggplants! -for roasting!
Buttercup Squash- this has yogurt and nut butter written all over it.
Banana flavored polar water- this looked cool. I’m a sucker for fancy flavors + sparkling water…
A huuuuge pack of portobello mushrooms. So excited to grill these up!
Another soy nut butter- cause it’s still my favorite and I’d never seen that brand before.
Smart Balance Crunchy Peanut Butter- I know this wasn’t the best one to get but I had a coupon and the ingredients list isn’t bad. Have you guys tried this kind? What did you think? I also had a Sunland Banana one I got for 99 cents from Deals and Steals.
A Dragonfruit!- this was just sitting there all by itself on top of some kiwis. I picked it up and tossed it into the cart. Does anyone else think it looks a bit like a fancy goldfish?
We got four packages of strawberries, and one each of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Can’t wait!!
Kashi GoLean + Berries + Silk Pure Almond? PLEASE
We also got 2 pears, 4 apricots, 2 plums, 3 peaches and 4 nectarines. This sounds like a lot? Keep in mind we have 5 members of our family.
I also found a Pink Lady!
It seems to match my cheeks.
I’ve heard you all talk so much about these, I was psyched to find one! Can’t wait to try it. Any suggestions for the best way to eat it?
So as of right now, this is my nut butter collection.
The little one is the delicious Roasted Maple Pecan Butter Whitney sent me from her giveaway! this. stuff. is. so. good. Thanks so much Whitney!! YUM!
So basically I feel like this.
Only I’m not a cat…..
tomorrows breakfast is destined to be oats in a jar made with the PB jar I made my mom save in case I wasn’t allergic to nuts. So excited!
The Nutty Nut, Hannah
EDIT: OMG I CAN NOW EAT THE PEANUT FLOUR I BOUGHT AHHH
