The other day, I read an article about creative ways to make some extra cash. One of the ideas was basically turning your car into a moving billboard by advertising on it. Apparently, you can make some serious dinero doing this. One company who does this type of advertising, Free Car Media, says they’ll pay up to $900 per month! Crazy, right?
I’m all about moneymaking ideas, but I’m on the fence about this one. My car is old and sort of a piece of crap, so wrapping it in advertising actually wouldn’t be all that bad, but it would still look ridiculous no matter what.
Would you turn your car into a moving billboard if it earned you an extra $900/month?
I don’t know about you (maybe I’m weird), but before I fall asleep at night, I almost always think about what I’m going to eat for breakfast the next morning. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day, so I get excited for it. Last night was no different: I wanted pancakes for breakfast.
Pancakes take a little more effort than the average breakfast, so I whipped up the batter last night and stored it in the refrigerator overnight, so all I had to do was cook it in the morning. I added a layer of Barney Butter to the top of my pancake this morning.
Almond Pancake for One
- 1 banana
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp almond flour/meal
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend well. (You could always mix by hand; it’ll just take some elbow grease to get the batter really smooth.)
- Pour batter onto a pre-heated, coated-in-non-stick-cooking-spray skillet or fry pan. Cook and flip.
- Serve with maple syrup, fresh fruit, nut butter, and other favorite toppings.
I spent a few hours at NuVal this morning, so I packed a large snack/small lunch to eat while there: sweet potato wedges + a container of plain Greek yogurt. Both were very satisfying and kept me full for a few hours.
When I got home from NuVal, I made myself a delicious Coconut-Kale smoothie. I can’t put my finger on the exact flavor of it, but it tastes very ‘tropical.’ (I wonder how it would taste with a little bit of rum in it?) The coconut flavor is fairly dominate, but the sweetness of banana and honey seem to mellow it out. It’s just really tasty– and nutritious!
- 1 cup frozen chopped kale

- 1.5 cups coconut milk
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal

Off to walk the pug and then CrossFit! I’m excited for tonight’s WOD!
