Another thing that also took up my time the past few weeks was Jordan. I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible because as of Sunday he left for Korea, and will be teaching there for the next year. He's been there only a few short days and is already being challenged and having an amazing time, I am so happy for him and cannot wait to continue hearing the stories he will have to share!
As for me... I've gotten my g2, I finally got the official card in the mail yesterday, what a horrendous photograph of myself, that's an understatement to be quite frank. I gave a little screech when I saw it, it was horrible. But, I'll be able to re-take it soon, so I look forward to that. I have a job. I potentially have a job in Montreal for the summer. I am planning on visiting Jordan in Korea at the end of my next potential job i.e. end of August beginning of September. I'm looking forward to what the future holds. I've set some new fitness goals, and I'm looking forward to reaching them; one of them including a goal to climb a rock wall at the nearest rock climbing centre in town!
As for recipes... I have one I am going to share with you guys that I've absolutely fallen in love with. My breakfasts have pretty much been a staple of smoothies lately. I've been buying the biiiig 454g tub of spinach each week and going through them by myself. I throw spinach in my smoothies, with whey, chocolate milk, water, and fruit, they are incredibly delicious and filling.
One of my favourite smoothies, was one that I should have posted for St-Patrick's Day, however due to work circumstances and other I was put far behind, but here is the recipe. This is insanely delicious, the colour is beautiful and all natural, the flavours are bold and refreshing. I really enjoy this! This is great because... well, I've never ever enjoyed chocolate milk as I've said numerous times I'm not a fan, but mint chocolate chip ice cream has always been a favourite of mine, and this sort of reminds me of it. Instead of peppermint extract you can use a few mint leaves (which I've been doing this week), you can use cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips, regular soy milk or any soy milk, it's really versatile and you'll get similar fantastic tastes'.

I'm hoping that this week I'll be able to have a little bit more time and share tome amazing vegan recipes I've been indulging in! Hope to see you all soon!
Hope you're enjoying yourselves, and the beautiful weather out there.
