Taylor Swift got beats, I got beets. No trademark infringement!
I made this shake for dinner and I’ve got to say I like it. I’ve never been a fan of beets – generally I think they taste like dirt – but I cooked these in the microwave (surprisingly easy) and put one in with all these ingredients. I added chia seeds and a cup of spinach and, as you can see, it remains a lovely shade of PURPLE. Possibly the purpliest purple to EVER purple. Double bonus: it doesn’t taste like dirt. I’ve got a friend doing Atkins induction right now and this is possibly the only meal she won’t be jealous not to be eating.
After a follow up visit with an eye doctor today, it turns out I didn’t have something in my eye after all- just a straight up eye infection. It’s one I hadn’t heard of and it means putting drops in my eyes every two hours for the next day or so and having my eye dilated for a couple weeks. This means I’ll be lots of fun at parties. Luckily I have no parties to attend.
It also means no real sleep tonight, so I’m going to stream Netflix’s Sense8 which everyone said was an interesting and trippy show and should go real well with sleep deprivation. w00t!
The upside is that finally having stuff to help my eye will maybe make me less likely to want to assault people. The struggle was real today, people.
