Caterpillars Need Breakfast Too

Muggy but at least cool, I headed out this morning to run a comfortable 6.24 miles in 50 minutes. My legs felt pretty tired toward the end but nothing a little green juice couldn’t fix.

The star of today’s green sludge:

A beat up pear.


Thank you Heather for this fab idea!

Today’s concoction consisted a HUGE head of romain, cucumber, pear, lemon and ginger. Go ahead and call me a lettuce vampire, I love drinking the blood of plants!


Out of bananas, I contemplating eating my chocolate overnight oats without bananas this morning (BOO!) But then I realized that the caterpillar needed fresh milkweed leaves too, and that cinched it. We were making a quick emergency run for bananas and milkweed leaves. Even caterpillars love to eat their greens.

Fortunately the playground near our house (and also happens to be right on the way to the corner grocery store) has a nice stash of milkweed plants growing.

Stop #1: Caterpillar breakfast.


Stop #2: Crazy banana lady breakfast.


Awww yeah, kids up, throw clothes on, forget the hair brush. Mama needs bananas.

A fresh leaf for our little buddy.


And fresh bananas for our little mommy.


Phew. That was a close one.

And now we’re off on our next adventure.

  1. I’m glad you got your bananas! šŸ˜‰ Have a great day!

  2. I loved that you said your kids didn’t have their hair brushed. Sometimes, I forget. :o) I get places and I am brushing their hair with my hand. I swear, it was so much easier to leave the house when I only had one person to take care of, not 3!

  3. Love the un-done hair crazy banana lady shot!!! Too cute!!!
    My son has a buzz cut head like my hubby…. but my daughter sometimes slides out the door with a bird’s nest as a hair-do. It’s totally in this season.

  4. So happy you got the bananas! Breakfasts are never quite complete without them! šŸ˜€

  5. Haha. I went to the store yesterday and stocked up on 12 bananas. There is no I should ever be without a banana.

    I wish it was cool here.
    And they don’t believe in air conditioning out here. Can you send some cooler temps my way?! šŸ™‚

    • Holy cow Elizabeth, you aren’t kidding! Crazy! It’s been cool and rainy here in the northeast. Yesterday was the first day it’s felt like summer at all!

  6. Hey, I didn’t brush my hair either today. I didn’t even realize it – I woke up late and brushed my teeth, washed my face and ate breakfast. I got to work and luckily it just looked like I was going for the messy, bedhead look.

    Life without bananas is a life I don’t want to live. And I’m glad you tried the pear in the juice! It’s so good.

  7. NOW that’s dedication!

    I would eat cat hair rather than pitch a trip to the store for just one thing! If didn’t make it home on my once a week trip…. I have to figure it out cuz I am lazy!

    (if we need diapers, hubs takes me!!!! )

    he swears I married him just cuz I wanted a chauffeur … I laughed but some days I wonder if he’s right!???!!!

    jk…. he helps with the laundry too.

    I’m off for more evil fun.

    loving the pillar pics!
