Yesterday we had no food in the house! It was dire straights over here. Breakfast was unphotographed; it even pains me to say it: I had tea, a pita, and some applesauce. Later, I did have one of these Spirulina and Cashew Raw Revolution bars as a mid-morning snack.
I like this flavor a lot, and it's the only flavor I've seen in a sample size, which I also greatly appreciate.
Lunch was me scaring up a salad:
This was romaine, a little spinach, cucumber, carrots (which I luckily had a 5lb. bag of), jarred sun-dried tomatoes and raw sunflower seeds in a tahini/lemon/harissa dressing of sorts. It was tasty, don't get me wrong, but gasping for vegetables.
On lunch, I went grocery shopping. Ah, kale.
Dinner featured the beautiful booty:
Zucchini, organic yellow bell pepper, and steamed kale. I munched on some carrots and celery while making this. Re-vivified, G and I headed out to a friend's birthday at a bar and played a few rounds of bocce! It was pretty fun and now I feel even more like a 74 year old than usual.
Today's breakfast was a rather gray smoothie. The bananas weren't quite ripe, but it was good otherwise. It had: Blueberries, strawberries, a banana, spinach, kale, flax seed, and vanilla extract. I also had a handful of pumpkin seeds.
Then I went to my parents' house and did some gardening for my mom! Digging in the dirt is a long-forgotten pleasure, too often not indulged. I fixed that today. I planted radishes and pumpkin and moved some other plants around, along with raking, breaking down sticks, filling planter beds and aerating soil. I came back with a mint plant from their garden and some raw wheat germ not from their garden.
I quickly made some lunch because G and I were both stahhhving. We had plans to go out to dinner so I made a light broth-y soup, that actually looks a lot like Shen's, but less on steroids (Man Ram, anyone?)
Veg broth, onion and garlic, carrots, celery, kale, and exactly three sun-dried tomatoes, with spices.
And for dinner, back to Taco Chulo's. This time I got the Conejo burrito which was beans, guac, cabbage!, radish, lettuce, and potatoes. Really, really good. We don't often eat out but G was going to band practice in that direction anyway and last night (coming home from the bar, hungry, obviously) we started talking about tacos and couldn't get it out of our heads. Here's the leftover half of my burrito. Does not do it justice.
I think we're all caught up here. Now I'm off to do some extra special baking ;)
