Today's breakfast was NOT chia, holla. Instead, I give you a gross smeary photo of a delicious smoothie:
It was rainy today and pretty impossible to get any decent photos. This smoothie was spinach, an orange, frozen cranberries, ginger, and orange juice. Tasty.
Lunch was another Gena dish (big surprise!):
marinated collards with broccoli, spinach, red pepper, onion, sundried tomatoes, avocado, hemp seeds. I made a couple additions and substitutions as I was planning a collard salad in my head anyway, but once I saw Gena's recipe, I trusted her salad knowledge. And, oh, she's got lots.
Unpictured snacks were a banana, dates with raw almond butter, and a Mountain Mint Wildbar. I know I wanted to stay away from premade raw snacks and bars but...I couldn't. The bar was really good and its nutrition stats are pretty awesome. Far fewer calories than most raw bars I see, and nowhere near as sweet, with tons of vitamin power. I'm a fan. I was also getting tired and a bit of a headache late in the afternoon from either lack of caffeine or something else but it went away after the bar, so, yay for raw cacao.
Dinner was more collard wraps:
with carrots, zucchini, chopped broccoli, both fresh AND sundried tomatoes, red pepper, and a schmear of raw cashew alfredo (the stuff's pretty thick - about the consistency of ricotta cheese.) Two bites or so in I noticed a bitsy inchworm crawling on the outside of the collard leaf! Eek and ack. I hope he was the only one! Cute but not in my belly, no thank you.
Dessert was three dates - two with raw almond butter and cocoa powder and one with ginger powder. Super tasty and a distraction from G's Ginger Newman-Os on the kitchen table.
Go get yr green on.
