My computer (I almost wrote cucumber) has been working against me all day. I tried to type up some poetry and it kicked me off about 7 times before I got really angry and gave up. And just now, I tried to watch Ed Wood and the DVD won't play. My second favorite thing to do after wasting time on the computer, eat, was also letting me down today because of the heat. Here's what I managed to scarf:
Breakfast was a fruit salad (banana, nectarine, blueberries) topped with a bit of lemon juice and coconut flakes. Iced coffee with rice milk.
I went for a grocery run early and when I got back I snacked on a mini Raw Revolution bar.
Lunch was collard wraps with hummus, carrot, cucumber, tomato, baby spinach, and raw corn.
Some chips and salsa were consumed also. G and I are apparently trying to sample every type of salsa they sell at Trader Joe's. Today's picks were peach salsa and a tomatillo and roasted yellow chili salsa. The peach is a little too sweet for me, but the other one is pretty good.
And finally, after many liters of water, a nap, some cleaning, and sewing (I finished a dress!) I was hungry/bored enough to eat dinner:
Salad (romaine, baby spinach, carrot, red cabbage, raw corn, cucumber, white beans) topped with the peach salsa mixed with YET ANOTHER super spicy salsa we had in the fridge. The sweetness of the corn and lettuce cut the heat nicely and everything was a nice, cooling crunch.
So. That's all. I've been trying to eat high raw these last few days, and I feel pretty good about it. No headaches! I didn't even drink for a while, but I might tonight.
Do you guys have a favorite salsa brand? Or do you usually make your own? I think I've tried to make my own once but nothing like instant gratification...and that satisfying pop opening a jar, haha. Plus there are SO MANY FLAVORS.
