Happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a good week. Mine has been pretty good but I have a great weekend planned and I think looking forward to that is making this week drag a little!
These are my eats and goings on from Monday. I started my day as always with warm water and a squeeze of lemon juice followed by a blended coffee:
I’m running low on coconut oil so used that as an excuse to make a cacao butter version. I used plenty of the cacao butter, a good tablespoon I would guess. So foamy and creamy! Then it was off to the gym:
I’m back doing my amended version of the LiveFit programme. On Monday it was legs, back and biceps. I started with 5 minutes on the cross trainer and finished with 10 minutes on the bike. I must have worked hard as my muscles are still sore today!
I came home, showered and made a green smoothie for breakfast:
This was spinach, apple, 2 scoops of vanilla sun warrior, ice, almond milk, maca powder, cinnamon and a piece of fresh ginger. It was gorgeous as always and the ginger gave it a nice kick. Luckily my cold was much better by Monday morning but I’m still hammering the ginger and lemon!
I decided wear a dress again for work:
That scarf keeps me nice and snug!
For lunch I started with a mug of warm chicken bone broth. As I was saying yesterday I have been researching some Paleo style approaches to nutrition and bone broth is very rich in nutrients. I also think its respectful to the animal and environmentally friendly to use as much of it as possible. I won’t show a pic of the broth as it did not look appetising! It did taste good though, on Sunday I had roasted an organic chicken with honey and lemon so the broth had a lovely lemony taste.
After that I had a salad:
Lettuce, cucumber, salmon, olives, balsamic. Then finished off lunch with a few macadamia nuts:
This kept me full until dinner time when I roasted up some veggies in coconut oil, sautéed some chard and fried up a couple of eggs:
I roasted crown prince squash, brussels and cauliflower – this was such a simple but very satisfying meal!
For dessert I had a bowl of frozen cherries with coconut milk (thickened in the fridge) and almond butter:
Perfect dessert! During the day I drank lots of green and herbal teas as well as Dandy Blend too.
Despite the cold weather I still love my smoothies, salads and cold desserts with frozen berries, even if they are rather unseasonal cravings! I think its just a case of smoothies and salads being such a mainstay of my diet! Drinking lots of warm tea also helps :-) Do you crave any unseasonal foods?
