I’m in need of some greens. I ate my weight in gravy this past week, so I’m keeping it light this weekend.
In the interim, I’m shredding some Brussels and tossing them together with cranberries and avocados so I can shove as many superfoods in my mouth at one time and feel a little better about putting on a pair of yoga pants. I signed up for a month-long intensive pilates class, and to be totally honest, I’m scared to death to make my first appearance in class tomorrow. It could be a seriously horrifying experience.
