I’ve been in a bit of a food rut lately.
A very delicious rut, if I do say so myself, but a rut none the less.
Typically, I strive to vary my meals each day to ensure that I feed my body a variety of nutrients, but sometimes eating the same few meals over and over is just easier! I know what I like, and I like to eat it often. One of the perks of maintaining this website is that it motivates me to be creative, coming up with new healthy meal ideas to share with you all–> but I just wanted to also show that sometimes my meals get boring and monotonous, too.
Of course, in this case, boring doesn’t mean bland! I have yet to get sick of a single thing I’ve been eating.
Un-pictured: 2 cups black coffee, a cap full of raw aloe juice (<– this brand is the only one I’d recommend, it’s 100% aloe juice!), and lots of water.
I picked up a few bottles of green juice this weekend from Pressed Juicery, and have been mixing these two blends to create my own perfect flavor. I love the spiciness of Greens 4 with the sweetness of Greens 2!
I also love not having to break out my juicer for a change.
Cherry Chocolate Avocado Smoothie! I added fresh spinach and frozen cherries to my favorite choco-cado milkshake, for a delicious and filling shake.
(This recipe makes 2 glasses worth, and I drank both!)
Raw almond butter fudge. I can’t get enough of this stuff.
An arugula salad (at least I’ve mixed-up my greens!) topped with raw goat cheddar, green peppers, and lemon dressing.
Followed by a cauliflower pizza, topped with more goat cheese and green pepper. I made a big batch of frozen pizza crusts this weekend, so this dinner has been quick and easy! For those of you who want to avoid dairy, I’ve been making my crusts without the goat cheese lately (simply because it’s one less ingredient to buy), and they turn out totally fine. Not quite as good as the original recipe, but it works for me when I’m just feeding myself! It also means I eat a little less cheese when I polish off the whole pizza by myself.
Though I haven’t eaten pizza every night this week, I have eaten some combination of vegetables smothered in marinara and goat cheese for the last few nights in a row. I can’t get enough!
A friend of mine introduced me to these chocolate bars this past weekend, and they’re absolutely addictive! The crunch from the toasted flax seed reminds me of a Nestle Crunch bar–> one of my childhood favorites!
Needless to say, these disappeared quickly.
