I have some grocery hauls and a few random pictures to share with you:
This haul is from H-Mart, the Korean market that happens to be about 2 minutes from my house. I got some seasoned seaweed, baby spinach, soft tofu, Korean rice cakes (I've wanted to try these for so long!) and some scallions (those cost me a whopping 20 cents!). I can't wait to make the recipes I have planned with these ingredients.
I also grabbed a few random things from Fairway. Vegan "dairy" products and they had Zevia on sale big time so I decided to try the Dr. Pepper product they have! I can't wait to try it, I hope it's not gross, ha!
I treated myself to a bubble tea on Sunday and it was so delicious and refreshing. I think I'm going to make this a weekly treat because I enjoy it so much. Thankfully it isn't too far from me either. I got my favorite Peach Green Tea with the boba.
I made myself another quesadilla in the same combination of fat free refried beans, daiya cheddar and some spinach. So delicious. I need to get tofutti sour cream to go with this and of course some avocado.
So I very rarely post "selfies" (still hate this word!) but I have a point to make with this one. This was taken yesterday. As you all probably know by now about 4 years ago I had an allergic reaction to hair dye and through subsequent testing found out that I had an allergy to the chemical PPD. This meant that I could no long dye my hair and had to learn to deal with the gray hair that had been plaguing me since I was 16 years old. It has taken years but I've finally grown comfortable with my gray hair and have moments where I even kind of like it. I have been someone that has picked myself apart my entire life and I have never been happy with my appearance. While I may still lack confidence in my appearance my acceptance of one of my insecurities shows me that I am on my way. I posted this natural hair, no makeup picture because this is me. My skin doesn't look great and my salt and pepper hair is getting a lot more salty but this is the skin and hair that I was given and it will make my life a lot better if I can accept that. It's a slow journey but I'll get there.
And that's all I have to share with you today. Thanks again for everyone's kind words. I'm glad to be back on my regular posting schedule and I'm hoping to have some fun new meals to share with you this weekend. I hope that you all have a great week <3
