Even though I'm so excited to bring this series back to life I'm also a bit sad about this post for two reasons.
- I am working on some cute graphics to help fancify the WIAW series and I made them last night after a long day of work but was too tired to apply it to this particular WIAW. So I'll just have to wait until next Wednesday to let it make its debut.
- I have had an odd appetite lately. Almost no appetite actually. Food doesn't sound appealing to me right now and salads sound like way too much work. I hardly recognize myself. I've been drinking juice, hoping to glean some nutrition, and forcing myself to eat lots of fruit for calories. At night I stuff myself as much as I can handle with the only meal that sounds good to me: massaged kale and roasted sweet potato. I think this is one huge part why I've paused the WIAW series because I really don't have anything interesting to post! I think it'd be pretty boring to say "today I had a green juice and three peaches" ... who eats like that?!
So, please be patient with me.
In the meantime, here's an honest glimpse into a busy girl's life.
Raw Cacao Orange Cake. I have had zero issues with having an appetite for this. So freakin' good. It's easy to make and relatively low in fat for a raw dessert. I could eat the entire thing in a sitting if I let myself!
Green Juice. This is a recycled picture but something I've been consuming on the daily. I'm cramming myself with nutrients in as efficient a way as possible and this seems to do the trick. I sip on anywhere from 32 oz to 64 oz throughout the day. Then when I'm hungry again I have some fruit. It's been really helpful keeping my energy and spirits up!
Life Changing Bread by My New Roots. I also made this bread this week. So, so good. It's so easy, so tasty, and flour-free. I can hardly eat it because it is SO filling and swells up in your belly (in a good way) but the bites that I do take feel pretty damn good. My husband has been trying to gain weight lately (isn't that adorable??) and this is what prompted me to make this bread. He's been scarfing it down and singing its praises for how good it is and how filling it is. He likes his bread with raw honey. I like it by the handful.
And there it is: a week of eating in my real raw kitchen.
Any recommendations on what to make this upcoming week?? I'd love to hear from ya!
