This morning, my stomach was still feeling a little weird (probably) from something I did or ate yesterday. So I decided to stick to bland foods for the most part.
For breakfast, my second attempt at a Chocolate Cherry Bomb 🙂
This one was much better. Adding the half banana is crucial. This smoothie contained: 1 cup Silk almond milk, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/4 cup frozen cherries, 1 (generous) tbsp cocoa powder and 2 cups of spinach. Yum!
Since I was sort of afraid to eat leftover falafel today, I stuck to easily digestible oatmeal for lunch 🙂
This is getting out of hand. I’m seriously considering a cut back or giving up caffeine for a while. I go back and forth. This is usually the time of year that I quit and then end up heavily addicted again by Fall!
I also had a few sips of this to try and get some more veggies in, but I decided to save it for another day. I like carrot juice a lot, I always get weird looks 😉
Later in the afternoon, I got pretty hungry so I had a Tropical Fruit Tart Larabar. I love this flavor, you can totally taste the orange juice in it, which I like.
This really worked up my appetite! I had a couple of snacks at home before dinner.
Carrot chips + hummus.
It’s about time to go to girl’s night potluck!
I love Wednesdays. We are having vegetarian chili and I made something awesome to go with it, which I will share with you all later 🙂
Hope my stomach is getting back to normal. I don’t like having anything unsettled in that area!
Do you guys know that April 5th is National Sweet Potato Day? That’s cause for celebration…more on that later!
I actually had a little trouble with this one. My blender was dirty and I didn’t feel like cleaning it out so I used my food processor, which did not “process” this as well as I would’ve liked. I also think I used too much cocoa powder.
Mid-morning, I snacked on some nuts with coffee 🙂
For lunch, I made a salad with carrots, a leftover chickpea patty, and some pine nut hummus.
I also ate a juicy orange with lunch. I just realized I got quite a bit of orange in my diet today!
The whole experience allowed me to learn how to live without something and now that it’s back in my life, I don’t need to eat them so much that the special-ness wears off. I only bought two bars to have this entire week!
For dinner, I had only one thing on my mind. Couscous!
I love couscous and every now and then I get a big craving for it, which is usually when I go ahead and buy some. It doesn’t have as much fiber as other grains, but it sure it tasty!
And of course, I had a sweet potato in honor of National Sweet Potato Day (thanks Lindsay for letting me now about this important food holiday)!
What was the best thing you ate today?
