I did it again. I spent all day cheerfully snapping pictures of my food and then realized that I’d left my camera cord in Seattle this morning. Bad blogger. I apologize for the bland post but here is “What I Ate Wednesday” with pictures to come!
32 oz ginger tea with 2 frozen wheatgrass cubes and stevia
32 oz carrot, kale, romaine juice with with stevia and cinnamon
Deceptively Chocolatey Mint Green Smoothie:
1 head romaine
1 cup spring water
4 tbsp carob powder
1/4 cup fresh mint
1/2 an avocado
1 dropper chocolate stevia
1 dropper vanilla stevia
pinch sea salt
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Dinner was a big bowl of kelp noodles, 2 free-range scrambled eggs, steamed spinach, shredded cabbage, dulse, coconut vinegar, and stevia.
Dessert was a couple ounces of Trader Joe’s organic 72% dark chocolate. ‘Twas delish.
I’ve been immensely enjoying having smoothies during the day which are simultaneously light and filling. I find that I feel better with less overall density in my day and I haven’t had the desire to overeat at dinner with a good, hydrating smoothie mid-afternoon (usually Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl). I’m feeling very free with this lifestyle right now, I used to think that “juicing ’til dinner” was a sort of be-all-end-all and I’m excited to notice that I’m a lot more flexible than that. I know when I can bend and compromise and how. Some days juicing until dinner feels awesome, sometimes (especially when I’m really active) I love some fruit. Sometimes I have lunch and keep the day as a whole really light. Learning to listen to my body has been such a process but I’ve never felt more in tune with it than I do right now.
