Announcing a new drawing challenge: Leap, and the aftermath of a party!

February 29, 2016

Hi everyone,

I get to host this week’s drawing challenge and the theme will be Leap. Obviously, since it’s a leap year, but also because of mad March hares and unconstrained spring joy and starting March with a daily drawing habit…oh yes!

The trouble is that after last night’s Oscar party and junk food, we felt like Morgan this morning.
Also, you know what? Junk food costs a lot of money! Honestly! Sixty two dollars for hot wings, chips, pop (not Coke or Pepsi…I do have my standards!) dips and candy!

Eating healthy, locally grown foods and cooking them from scratch is a whole lot more economical. Just saying.

Anyway, the trouble this morning was that we are used to feeling like this!

So we went down to the Buddha-Full juice bar…

And treated ourselves to a couple organic booster drinks.

I chose an almond milk chai, with antioxidants like cardamon, cinnamon and ginger. and Clove got the Buddha-Licious fruit smoothy.

So we sat in the weak sunshine sipping our drinks…

…and we started to feel a bit better. A bit fresher.

Whew! No more junk foods…at least till next year’s Oscars…or Superbowl or something. 😀

    I love the pictures 🙂 And I agree with you, healthy eating is definitely way cheaper than eating junk food.

    Veronica I have a feeling that with your culinary skills you could probably create a ‘fast foods’ experience for the Oscars/Superbowl etc but made entirely of healthy foods …. just saying …. this could be a fascinating blog post for us all …. no pressure 🙂 XX

    Well, I guess they don’t call it JUNK food for nothing, eh?
