I’ve been feeling a bit under-the-weather lately, thanks to allergy season and a compromised immune system (due to pregnancy), so I’ve been starting my mornings with a mashed clove of garlic and a bit of raw apple cider vinegar diluted in water. It’s not tasty, but it usually does the trick.
When my appetite rolled around, I continued on my green juice kick.
I’m hoping these daily juices will also give my immune system the boost it needs, because we’re getting ready to travel for the long weekend, and I need all the help I can get! This mix contained Romaine lettuce, celery, carrots, cucumber, kale, a small apple and a lemon. So delicious!
It was a particularly busy day, so I ended up grazing up until dinner. My stomach room also seems to be shrinking, so smaller meals might have to become a regular thing until September arrives…
Between noon and 6pm, my food looked something like this:
Followed later by 3 pasture-raised eggs cooked in butter, with a heaping pile of spinach, onions, green pepper and topped with some melted raw goat cheddar.
Later, I needed another snack. A bowl of plain goat yogurt, sweetened with pure maple syrup and honey hit the spot. (I forgot to take a picture until I reached the end of the bowl… I was really excited to eat it!)
Even later, I took some photos for an upcoming recipe post, and then ate the subject matter: a Peanut Butter Banana ice pop! These are so good, our friends have already helped us polish off the entire batch that I made yesterday.
Like I mentioned above, we are getting ready to travel, so we’re trying to clean out our fridge as much as possible before we leave. I roasted up an assortment of random veggies from the week, and threw them over a leafy green salad with a balsamic dressing to start off the meal.
Followed by a large bowl of steamed cauliflower, smothered in raw goat feta! This is one of my favorite comfort foods, so I was happy to finish it off.
For dessert, I enjoyed a banana-chocolate milkshake, made with homemade hemp milk! So good.
