What I Ate Wednesday

Morning:

Un-pictured: Probiotics

cup of coffee and watermelon cut on a cutting boardLots of water, plus a couple cups of coffee with homemade almond milk creamer.

Followed later by half of a personal-sized watermelon.

Lunch:

plate of salad and a container of dates

Shredded salad of romaine lettuce, carrots and cucumber, topped with a whole avocado, homemade raw sauerkraut, and a lemon-thyme dressing. I like to mash everything together, to mix all of the flavors and create a “creamy” texture from the avocado– so it looks pretty messy by the time I’m ready to eat it, but it tastes amazing.

Followed by a couple fresh dates for my lunch-time dessert.

Mid-Afternoon Snack:

raw macadamia nut fudge slices on a plate

I snacked on a variation of my favorite raw macadamia nut fudge, this batch was made with half shredded coconut/half raw macadamia nuts. I still prefer the original recipe, but this one works when your macadamia nut stash is running low.

Dinner:

salad in a bowl and a spoon mixing chocolate in a small bowl

Another shredded salad! (I’m trying to use up my veggies before my next trip.) Romaine, carrots, cucumber, raw sauerkraut, smothered in a homemade Green Goddess dressing. I’ll be posting the dressing recipe soon, as I can’t seem to get enough of it.

Followed by a dish of raw chocolate–> which is basically this recipe, but not frozen into a solid bar.

Note: Though I don’t typically count calories or worry about meeting certain macro-nutrient requirements, I’ve received quite a few questions regarding my daily calorie intake, so I decided to input this particular day into FitDay.com, for a rough estimate. This day totaled just slightly over 1800 calories, in case you’re curious. And, more importantly, I enjoyed every bite!

I love that you snack on fudge and eat raw chocolate for dessert and yet all of it is totally healthy! So awesome!

Ryan

That salad looks yummy! Do you use your salad shooter?

    Megan

    Yes! The salad shooter makes the preparation so easy!

      Ryan

      Awesome. One last question, it even shreds lettuce like romaine? If so I am totally buying it!!

        Megan

        I didn’t use my Salad Shooter to shred the romaine, so I’m not sure. I had pre-shredded the carrots and cucumber over the weekend, so I just chopped the romaine with a knife when it was time to build my salad.

        I’ll try using the Salad Shooter next time! (I assume it will work…)

1900 calories is said to be healthy for a sedentary woman aged 19-30…2100 calories for moderately active…and 2400 for highly active

    Megan

    Calorie recommendations vary widely among health experts, which is why I prefer to avoid counting them all together! Not to mention, 1900 calories of processed foods isn’t going to be nearly as satisfying or nourishing as even 1500 calories of nutrient-dense foods, and calorie counting doesn’t seem to take that into account. These broad ranges also don’t seem to factor in height and build, which varies widely among men and women. I figure as long as I’m feeling full and satisfied, while maintaining my weight and health, I won’t worry about if I’m meeting some arbitrary calorie range.

Yum raw chocolate!!

Hey, speaking of salad, have you seen this? It’s my new favorite thing today:

    Megan

    I have seen those! I think it’s such a great idea, but I think I’d need to carry two jars with me to cover the amount of salad I’m used to eating. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      jeanne

      I know, right? You’d be surprised how much you can cram into a 32 ounce jar though!

Sara Maples

Looks like a delicious and healthy day!! I’m excited to try the dessert recipe!

Carrie

Must get a salad shooter pronto! I’m accustomed to the (very large) salads for lunch too, but i love the mason jar idea! *I had some goat yogurt that needed to be eaten, so, i did the “fruit on the bottom” yogurt in a mason jar thing today! It was delicious. Blackberry jam from the farmers market, with goat yogurt, layered. I sprinkled some cereal on top for a crunch. Thanks for introducing me to goat yogurt, and all it’s endless possibilities! We made tacos at home, were out of sour cream, and i told the kids to improvise with the goat yogurt. SCORE!!! I love your website, and posts!!!

Liz

Just curious- what is your recipe for the lemon-thyme salad dressing?
