I wouldn’t lie to you.
Never would I ever.
In my Everythingtarian book, lying is right up there with rude people, the time my mom cut my curly hair super short in 2nd grade and Taylor Swift. Annoying. Unnecessary. And totally uncool.
So when I said dinner needs to take five minutes or less, I really meant it. I got home from a 90 minute run/walk + grocery store trip with my friend Ilsa and devoured this vegan bowl of Vanilla Island Coconut Bliss ice cream, thawed mixed berries and a hefty drizzle of almond butter. It took me exactly 3:37.12 to make. Because I am really competitive and just kinda weird, I even timed it with my iPhone to prove this to you.
It was about 1:30 to defrost the mixed berries in the microwave.
Sixty seconds to scoop ice cream.
Another 60 seconds to dip my pointer finger straight into the almond butter jar for a taste.
Seven seconds to drizzle my dinner sundae with almond butter.
The 0.12 seconds came from me lifting the spoon to my mouth, me thinks.
Just for full disclosure, I ate this in less than five minutes, washed it down with a Passionberry Bliss GT Kombucha, am now killing a swarm of gnats that have found their way into my apartment by spraying Windex on the little buggers (pun totally intended) and may or may not be slightly light-headed from the fumes. I wish I could lie to you, but clearly I can’t. And won’t.
