Well I just have to say a big thank you for all the kind comments on my Vlog! I’m very happy that you enjoyed it (and my Geordie accent!) It seems that I could have an alternative career being a narrator or a voice over! I’ll definitely be posting more in the future, what can I say I like to ramble on ;-) You can also follow my channel on You Tube. Now on to the eats!
These are my eats and random things from yesterday. As soon as I woke up I was off to the kitchen for my hot water and lemon juice which I drank in the bathroom while putting my make up on:
For breakfast I had myself a little treat. I’d noticed that I still had a couple of slices of my raw caramel pecan cake in the freezer and thought it would be great for breakfast! I had a slice with a smoothie made with frozen cherries, hemp milk, vanilla sun warrior protein powder, water, ice, vanilla stevia and a pinch of sea salt:
It was divine! I also had coffee, obviously…
I was pretty excited when I saw that we were going to get some sun so I thought I’d get out a pair of sandals, for the first time this year I think!
Mid morning at work I snacked on some home made hummus with carrots to keep me going:
Lunch was a really good salad with romaine, spinach, cucumber, red onion, carrot, black beans, pumpkin seeds and an orange basil dressing:
The dressing was delicious! I’d made it at the weekend by combining fresh orange juice, basil leaves, apple cider vinegar, garlic and hemp oil. I wished I could have gone and ate my lunch outside, it was gorgeous!
Mid afternoon I had a crunchy fresh jazz apple and one of my raw cherry almond protein brownies:
Then it was off to the gym for Body Pump! I got there a bit early so did 20 minutes cardio on the machines before the class. It was a hot and sweaty one for sure!
Dinner was a baked sweet potato stuffed with sunflower seed butter, steamed broccoli with soy sauce and some cold marinated and baked tofu:
This is my favourite meal at the moment! Sweet potato with any type of nut butter is always good, I can’t get enough broccoli, and the firm and cold tofu (which I’d marinated in soy sauce, garlic and ginger powder then baked at the weekend) is just perfect.
For dessert I made a smoothie with a scoop of spiru-tein s’mores flavour, mixed frozen berries, water, ice, stevia and a pinch of xanthan gum to thicken, topped with freeze dried berries and pineapple pieces:
I’ve been craving smoothies like crazy so far this week! Instead of my usual hot tea I decided to make an iced tea:
This was just a bag of sleepy time tea left a while with some cold water and ice plus some agave for added sweetness, it was very refreshing.
So another pretty standard day from me! I’m happy with the balance I’m achieving at the moment, especially between cooked and raw foods. That breakfast will be repeated as will my dinner, I love it when meals satisfy you like that! I generally love variety in my diet, but occasionally I just love something so much I repeat it over and over! Do you have a favourite meal at the moment?
