What I Ate: Thursday 4/12


Green juice! Kale, Romaine, cucumber, lemon, and carrots.


Mixed green salad, topped with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, and a generous portion of vegan cheese sauce.

Followed by a bowl of steamed cauliflower and zucchini, smothered in the rest of the cheese sauce.


Raw almond butter + coconut oil + cinnamon. The almond butter and coconut oil are so naturally sweet, it’s like dessert!


Mixed green salad, topped with roasted red peppers, steamed beets, and organic chicken, dressed with a homemade lemon dressing. (the dressing wasn’t very good… I won’t be making it again.)

Followed by 5 oz. of spinach and a whole zucchini, sauteed in grass-fed butter with a pinch of Himalayan salt. So simple, and so good!


I always need a little something after dinner, and since all the dark chocolate I was eating was starting to affect my ability to fall sleep, I’ve switched to tea for a while. I enjoyed a cup of maple-y slippery elm tea, followed by a cup of Bengal Spice tea, with almond milk.

Pretty good night cap!

How do you make the elm tea? What’s it taste like? I’m looking to kill after dinner cravings?

    To make the tea, you just mix 1 tsp. of the slippery elm powder with boiling water, and stir until it’s dissolved. It will thicken a bit, and has a really mild flavor that I find appealing. (it smells like maple syrup!)

Hi Megan! Love love love your blog! I’m on quest to better my own health as I also help others do the same. Health and wellness have been a passion of mine for many years. I just happened upon your site while looking for almond meal. I found it and found you too! I help a traditional medical doctor with meal planning and cooking the GAPS method. Do you have much experience with kid friendly recipes w/no grain and no/sugar? I’ll visit again. Love you site! Thank you for all you do!


    Hi Diane! Make sure you check out my recipe tab at the top of the website– nearly all of my recipes are grain-free and refined-sugar-free, and should be appropriate for a GAPS diet.


That doesn’t seem like many calories for an entire day…
