It’s HOT in Boston today. I love that it feels like summer, but my poor pug is not a fan. He’s been napping on and off all day long.


Because of the heat, I couldn’t take Murphy for a long walk this afternoon, so I went out by myself. I missed my doggie side kick, but I covered quite a bit more distance without him. There were no potty breaks or sniff stops, so I walked about 4 miles in 60 minutes. It definitely felt like a workout in the heat!


Today’s lunch was totally random. I sort of lose my appetite when the weather gets this hot, so I wasn’t really in the mood for anything specific when lunch rolled around. Eventually, I decided on a mango smoothie with Greek yogurt, soy milk, and organic spirulina powder.


The last time I wrote about spirulina powder, I received a few questions about it that I wanted to answer.

Do you like the spirulina better than using fresh greens?

I don’t like one more than the other, but I like spirulina because it’s quick and easy to throw into a smoothie. If I don’t have fresh spinach or other greens on hand, a scoop of spirulina provides protein, essential fatty acids, tons of vitamins, including vitamins B12, C, and D, as well as a whole slew of minerals (potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium, and zinc).

Is there a weird taste to it?

There’s definitely a distinct taste to spirulina, but it’s not bad. I guess it sort of has a “healthy” flavor to it. As long as I add strong-tasting ingredients to my smoothie (banana, peanut butter, mango, etc.), it usually overpowers the spirulina.

How much do you add to your smoothie?

1-2 teaspoons.

After drinking my smoothie, I broke out a box of Vermont White Cheddar Wheat Thins, which may have been a bad decision. I ate about half of the box. They’re SO addicting!


And… then I ate a piece of Mal’s birthday cake from Mohegan Sun.


Um, yea, not the best day of eating for me so far. Maybe it’s because I didn’t eat a “balanced” meal at lunchtime? 😕

Back to work I go!
