My First Snow

Well, my first snow in quite some time.

If you live on the East coast then you have probably encountered a bit of snow over the past 24 hours.

I woke up this morning in Central New Jersey with a backyard full of snow and a driveway ready to shovel. I haven’t experienced this type of snow since I lived back in San Francisco and was visiting my parents one winter almost 4 years ago.

Before braving Jonas, I loaded up on a banana smoothie:

  • homemade almond milk
  • banana
  • frozen mango
  • cinnamon
  • agave


The yoga studio was closed today, but I certainly got a good workout in shoveling the driveway and walkways in front of our house.

Post-shoveling it was time to warm up by the fire and snuggle with a good book and a cat:

The rest of the day was spent relaxing on the couch and giggling with some snowed-in girl friends via the Internet.

When dinner rolled around it was time to scavenge for food. I managed to whip up a stir fry of sorts sautéing some onions, sweet potato, kale, bok choy, and mushrooms, with mirin and sesame seed oil, all over quinoa.


I hope everyone enjoyed their snow day. Rest up, because tomorrow’s the perfect day to go play outside!
