What I Ate Wednesday: february 5, 2014
Do you like how I completely neglected you yesterday and failed to put up a recipe? Yup. I did. I took a break from recipes this week because I can't keep up with the eating of the recipes. I make all these fabulous things but can't eat it fast enough and end up giving away so much food! I don't know about you but I'm not trying to waste money like that. So instead, I opted to slow down on recipe development .. for now.
This week has been another busy one, packed with lots of duties and tasks. I've found myself gravitating toward an 801010 lifestyle, naturally, without really intending to. I think it was my body's natural way of consuming the right amount of energy to sustain all the hard workin' I have had to do!
Just like last week, these aren't incredible photos nor are they incredibly special recipes, but it's an honest look at what a regular ole' girl in a basic raw food life eats.
Green Juice. That ain't new. But it's always worth noting because it really has become a staple in my diet. My favorite green juice is pretty sweet: 2 apples, 2 cucumbers, 1 head of celery, 1" ginger, 1 lemon or lime. Perfection.
Orange Juice. I've been loving this citrus season and I make fresh juice out of either oranges, clementines or tangerines every few days. This week I chose oranges and have been blending the juice with basil, bananas, and spinach for 60 ounces. So divine and filled me up all day.
Berries. I've had a serious slump in appetite, and I've mentioned it before, and the only fruit that sounds delicious when I'm hungry is a big bowl of berries. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries .. all of them. I like to blend them up with some water and sip on it throughout the day.
Macro Bowl. Seriously so good and so easy. I love mixing lots of veggies and sauerkraut together and then slurping up the goodness. I've been slowly adding these types of dishes into my diet, mostly in the evenings, and have noticed my energy boost right back up almost immediately. So good.
Abundance Bowl. I've been making this for years, and much like Sarah at My New Roots it's sort of just one of those meals I have regularly without ever bothering to share. My go-to combo: sprouted mung beans, massaged kale, sauerkraut, green onions, pomegranate seeds, roasted sweet potato in coconut oil, and a tahini miso dressing. It hits the spot every single time and even if my appetite is low I still enjoy it immensely.
Pretty boring, huh? I'm sorry, I really wish it was more exciting! I'm hoping this weekend I can get together some of my recipes on queue and share them with you! In the meantime, for a more real-life and real-time look at my eats, check out my Instagram!
