What I Ate Wednesday

Morning:

Un-pictured: A cap full of raw aloe juice, lots of filtered water, and a few cups of coffee with homemade almond milk creamer.

fresh veggies made into vegetable juiceFresh green juice, made with my Omega juicer. While it does take longer to make the juice using this masticating juicer, the resulting juice lasts longer–> so I make a double batch, and store half of it in the fridge for the next day. It’s pretty nice only having to make juice every other day!

In this double-batch: 2 large cucumbers, a head of romaine, 10 kale stems, 6 large carrots and 2 limes. (Makes about 32 ounces total.)

Lunch:

salad in a bowl and a bowl of cherry chocolate avocado puddingChopped romaine salad, topped with a whole roasted red pepper, and smothered in a Peppery Avocado Dressing (recipe in this book).

Followed by half a batch of Cherry Chocolate Avocado Pudding, sweetened with stevia.

Mid-Afternoon Snack:

bowl of pumpkin seed granola with homemade almond milkPumpkin seed granola with homemade almond milk.

Dinner:

plate of salad and a oven-roasted salmon on a plate

Mixed green salad topped with cherry tomatoes, steamed beets, and lemon dressing, followed by an oven-roasted salmon filet.

The salmon was supposed to go on top of my salad, but this was my first time trying to cook frozen fish (Wild Alaskan salmon from Trader Joe’s), and the cooking process took too long…. so I ate the salmon later. Just goes to show that everything doesn’t always go as planned around here.

glass of stevia sweetened lemonade with a strawAustin and I both enjoyed stevia-sweetened lemonade after dinner, and I also managed to polish off 2/3 of my Mint Dark Chocolate bar.

A pretty sweet way to end the evening!

I LOVE that peppery avo dressing!

    Megan

    Me too!! I pretty much love everything I’ve tried from that book.

Susan

What did you think of the TJ’s frozen salmon? Did it have a frozen-fish taste?

    Megan

    I didn’t notice a “frozen” taste to it, but I think I overcooked it this time around (my own fault for trying something new), so I’ll have to try again to be sure.

Carrie

I signed up for IIN on 9/8. I LOVE it! I finish my week’s work within the first two days 😉 there’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be successfull. This program gives you all the tools and support you need.

    Megan

    Yay! Congrats on your enrollment! Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

The Pumpkin Seed Granola…MUST try it! Everrything else looks dedlicious!

Holly

I tried making your juice combination in my Vitamix but it tasted too vegetable-y for me… I love your Choco-cado etc. shake recipes but I was hoping to include more veggies into my breakfast. My bf added an apple and some watermelon to his portion and it make a huge difference but I’m trying to keep my shakes properly combined…any tips?

    Megan

    If you’re throwing all those veggies in the Vitamix, it would be pretty thick and strong! Personally, I think it’s easier to take all those veggies in juice-form, rather than as a smoothie.

    If you’d like to add more veggies to your morning shakes, though, you can mix leafy greens with fruit– that’s still a proper combination. You can even add a bit of avocado (also a fruit!) to make it creamier and more satisfying. Hope that helps!

      Holly

      Thanks for the advice Megan, I’ll definitely give it a try!

Felicia

yumm!! it all looks so good- clean, fresh, & nutritious!

Jeanne

Trader joe frozen salmon is really good. I usually make in a frying pan, it’s either 4 or 8 minutes per side I can’t remember but it’s Delicious!!

Karen

I have an Omega juicer as well. I LOVE IT.

If you’re ever looking for a juice shot of something to wake you up, try ginger, lemon and cayenne. It’s a bit of a tear jerker but definitely makes you feel refreshed…with an added ZING!

I just found your blog today. Can’t wait to keep reading.
