Today was a bit of a broken up day in that I had a couple errands to run, and had an appointment at 6 not knowing when I'd be back. So today'sfood is more small plates than meals like yesterday. Breakfast, for me at least, was more chia pudding. G described the chia as "not not slimy" and asked for soaked oats for today. He went to work, I took the day off and followed the pudding with green tea and a banana. Just like yesterday.
After a couple hours I made up a snack plate:
Raw almond butter, celery, raisins, and carrots. Assemble yr own ant-on-a-whatever.
I love blackberries so, so much. I know they aren't in season but they actually weren't too expensive and they were really tasty. I feel like I liked them better than some I had this summer.
Besides the berries and bananas, there isn't any fruit in the house for me to snack on (which is a good thing, since I'm trying to cut back on sugar and they're relatively low-glycemic. It's weird, though, I can totally tell I'm craving juice and apples and such) so the next snack was raw broccoli with a bit of cashew cream.
After this, I ran out to get groceries. I love seeing people's grocery hauls. Here's mine:
nori, collards, scallions, zucchini, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, red bell peppers, lemons, raw cashews, pickles.
Close up on the nori. It doesn't say "raw" specifically but it does say "untoasted," so good enough for me. I'm not trying to win any awards over here.
And finally, dinner:
This is raw tuna salad from Gena's Choosing Raw. Really delicious! Expect a lot of Gena's recipes in the upcoming days. Served on spinach, with cucumber slices and a couple sliced tomatoes.
Then I ran out the door to the appointment...now I'm back and hungry and it's too late to eat!
G is getting a bit tired on the cleanse, he claims he needs "grease" in his diet. He ate some vegan, gluten-free taco toasts today but also tried these GoRaw Spirulina Super Chips. He also wants me to not that he got a raw green soup (romaine, cucumber, tomato, celery, kale, olive oil, and lemon) from Jivamuktea Cafe yesterday that he enjoyed too. The guy's trying; you gotta give him that.
I'm tired. Goodnight.
