Last year, I lived by myself, and most of my meals were consumed by myself, on the couch. (That sounds super depressing, but I swear, I had a social life!) Now, I live with two roommates, (and there is this boy who seems to be over a lot these days…) which made me realize how strange some of my habits are to the “ordinary” person.
Yep, these things are strange… even for the blog world.
I eat with kiddie spoons
For two reasons: 1. I tend to be a SUPER fast eater. So a smaller spoon helps me slow down and let myself feel full before I’ve shoveled in so much that I feel like I’m going to burst. 2. I make so many things in my vitamix, and the rubber/plastic spoons work a lot better at scooping things around the blades, rather than a big metal spoon. (For the recipe above, click here!)
Oh yes, the boy thought this was the weirdest thing ever. Pretty sure he was uncomfortable. Sorry.
I keep the Peanut Butter Puffins waaaaay on the top shelf of the kitchen.
See them way up there? This is because I couldn’t walk by the cabinet without grabbing a handful of cereal. And this happens, oh, 87392 times a day. Cereal didn’t last more than a few days. Oops. Now that I have to
drag a chair over climb up on the counter top to get it, I’m a little more mindful of what I’m eating.
I freeze soy milk into ice cubes
I like my smoothies to be super thick and creamy, and if you freeze your soymilk in ice cube trays, it makes your smoothies (like the one above) more like a milkshake! Warning: When someone thinks they’re getting ice our of the freezer, they’ll probably tell you that there is “something wrong with your ice”…
Trust me. The list could go on.
Sometimes I forget that my habits aren’t exactly normal. But everyone has their own ideas of normal, right?
