Last week my family got home from a three-week road trip. We drove over to Portland and then all the way down to San Diego. We went camping on the Oregon Coast, to Disneyland, the San Diego Zoo and Coronado Beach. Then for some reason (we now regret) we took our small children to Las Vegas. We also stopped at In-N-Out Burger every day. I had no idea if I could eat In-N-Out and was pleased to find (after I ate the first burger) that the buns are dairy-free and if you say something they will make your burger anyway you want. I just told them I had a dairy allergy and my burger was cooked alone and came on its own tray with ketchup and mustard. I heard conflicting information about the dairy ingredients of the special sauce and since I don’t really care for mayo or mayonnaise based sauces I just went with ketchup and mustard. I should have said something about the fries because my husband’s ‘animal style’ seemed to ooze onto the other fries. Anyway, great to know In-N-Out is allergy friendly! The only bad thing is the number of times we ate there in two weeks. I didn’t count and I am too ashamed to even try.
I have found that if you eat fast food and don’t exercise you will gain weight. It’s a revelation! Who knew? We are settled in now, the laundry is done and the green smoothie/T-Tapp diet and exercise program starts today!
I did my T-Tapp this morning and drank a Sweet Grapefruit Thickie. I’m on my way! Here’s the recipe so I don’t forget that I liked this one:
Sweet Grapefruit Thickie
1 cup dairy-free milk
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup dates
1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
2 cups baby spinach
1 grapefruit, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate or 2 oranges peeled and chopped
1 small mango peeled and chopped
1 cup ice
Blend in order given.
I usually don’t use ice in my smoothies, but there isn’t much to have frozen in this recipe so I added ice.
