We just returned home from a relaxing vacation in Oregon, so our fridge situation is pretty grim. Arriving home at midnight doesn’t leave much time for grocery shopping!
Below you’ll see what my meals look like when I don’t have much fresh produce to work with…
We almost always have a good stash of frozen fruit in our freezer, so I started my day with a fruity smoothie of frozen bananas, strawberries, and a ripe avocado blended with water and a bit of raw cacao powder.
I threw a couple of ripe pears in the fridge before we left for our trip, hoping they’d survive while we were gone. This one lasted pretty well, so it made the perfect snack when I got hungry again. I’m loving pears lately! (I think I ate one every day of our trip, too…)
A little later, I enjoyed two pasture-raised eggs fried in butter, and topped with nutritional yeast.
Even later, I steamed up a large white-fleshed sweet potato. (Thank goodness for their long shelf-life!) Topped with grass-fed butter and salt, this was the perfect sweet-and-salty combination.
We ended up meeting some friends for dinner at a brewery, and I was happy to see they offered some decent salad options! I ordered a large spinach salad, which was topped with Roma tomatoes, poached pears, goat cheese and toasted hazelnuts, dressed with a simple vinaigrette. (Not properly combined, but that hasn’t been a huge priority for me during pregnancy.)
When we got home, I finished off the evening with a Raw Key Lime Tartlet.
Thank goodness for my dessert stash in the freezer!
