Breakfast Smoothie: Almond milk, frozen banana, frozen blackberries, mint, and peaches.
This amazing blender is Marc’s. Before him, I used a magic bullet. Now, I don’t think I’d ever be able to go back.
The combo of any kinda berry and fresh mint is fantastic. I threw the peach in there because it was about to go bad, that usually would not be an ingredient in this one. Sometimes I’ll toss in some kinda seed, like chia or flax, but was in a rush today.
Snack: Muffins I made on Sunday. I followed that recipe pretty much, except a couple things: instead of brown sugar, I used coconut sugar. Instead of the yogurt, I just threw another banana in. I think I might have completely doubled the fruit additions too, I like a little extra.
There’s an amazing produce store in my area, Stanley’s. At the end of berry season, they will sell an entire case of berries for 98 cents. That’s like, 9 lbs of berries for $1. So, I stock up and freeze em for smoothies. Frozen berries are also fine for baked goods. And of course, I always have bananas in there too. I’ve tried real hard to enjoy those grocery store frozen bags of fruits, but nothing beats the real thing.
Lunch: Quinoa, arugula, edamame hummus, alfalfa sprouts, beets, cucumber, asian tofu, lemony green beans, chipotle vinaigrette
This is a copycat I made of Lyfe Kitchen‘s quinoa crunch bowl. It’s not exactly the same, but it is daaaamn delicious. Highly recommend both the asian tofu recipe and the chipotle vinaigrette. I’ll definitely be making both again. The edamame hummus is amazing too, I’ve made it a handful times, and somehow it always comes out tasting different, but still delicious.
Dinner: Sandwich on sprouted bread, with edamame hummus, cucumbers, tomato slices, alfalfa sprouts, and a little chipotle vinaigrette.
It was the end of the loaf, the bread slices were real small, which means two sandwiches. Twice as nice!! It’s Thursday, I wanted to wrap up all the ingredients I made/sliced up on Sunday, for the quinoa bowls. Worked out quite nicely, if I do say so myself.
The lighting in my kitchen is the absolute worst, I’m going to have to figure out how to photo everything I eat, outside.
