What I Ate Wednesday

Morning

I’ve been on a strawberry kick for the last two weeks.

sliced strawberries and yogurt in a bowl

When organic strawberries hit the markets, I just can’t help myself! I know they won’t be around forever, so I’m going to appreciate them while they are in season. I’ve been starting off my mornings with a bowl of fresh strawberries, followed a little later by a serving of goat milk yogurt, with ground cinnamon and pure maple syrup stirred in.

smoothie in a glassI’ve also been having an additional late breakfast/early lunch smoothie, to help me power through my busy workdays. I don’t always get to take a break for lunch, but with a smoothie, I can keep illustrating while I sip! This one included Sunwarrior raw plant protein, frozen banana, frozen cherries, raw cacao powder, spinach, water and ice.

Lunch

salad in a bowl and fried eggs with spinach in a skilletLater in the day, I enjoyed a leafy green salad topped with cherry tomatoes, steamed beets, raw goat cheddar and honey balsamic dressing. Followed by an omelet of sauteed onions, peppers, spinach and pasture-raised eggs.

Dinner

glass of green juiceBefore taking Yasha on our evening walk, I whipped up a green juice of romaine, cucumber, kale, green apple, ginger and lemon. With the weather warming up, I have a feeling I’ll be juicing more regularly again.

quinoa salad in a bowlFor dinner, I made another batch of quinoa pasta salad. I am in love with this stuff!

Dessert was a handful of 70% dark chocolate chips, with a cup of peppermint tea.

Yummm!! Your meals are always so healthy and delicious! This week I’m trying out some green smoothies. So good.

AbiKale

I agree with KEZIA! Great blog! Love that you update everyday so there’s always something new and yummy to read about!

This week I’m eating strawberries, baby kale smoothies, the last of our potatoes, and dehydrated sweet peas. Indulging my sweet tooth with an almond milk, frozen banana, walnuts, raw honey and cocoa powder shake in the evenings. Acutally anyting in Stephanie Tourles book (Raw Energy) is making its way into my Vitamix. Fantastic recipes!

Your beet salad looks so good!!!

Lori

Where do you get goat’s milk yogurt and pasture-raised eggs? Thanks!

    Learning Girl

    What about those of us who could never find those things? Can “liberte” or oikos greek or liberte goat yogurt and maybe free run or organic eggs be acceptable as “better than nothing at all?).

    Megan

    I usually find them at Whole Foods!

Meagan

When you say illustrating.. what are you doing exactly? Still new to following you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Megan

    I illustrate birthday and holiday cards that are sold in Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc. It’s pretty much my dream job!

      Mira

      Omg!!! That is such a cool job!!! Totally obsessed with your blog. When I first found it I couldn’t believe I actually found a blog that was specific to my diet! Soo helpful and inspiring! You have made my food allergies and diet preferences SO much more convenient as a busy college student!

My eats are not as impressive as yours (and mine are out of control). Digetsion and bowels are shot…paleo, vegan, just junk …I don’t know what to do and am so so so tired (LOW iron and just NO energy or head space…always thirsty but ironically low in sodium acc. to bloodwork so now adding salt to meals I think maybe).

But with all that fruit in the smoothies, no blood sugar crashes?
The sunwarrior blend WORTH it ? I was told about either a pure good quality whey or maybe maybe a brown rice sunwarrior…but what about the blend?

See the news on Hayley Pasternak’s “Body Reset Diet”? Let me know your thoughts…good reviews are on it (to cleanse out and reset body) but also negative comments (for weight loss is more target and i guess digestion is MORE my target so maybe not the right thing? plus some say its WAY too low in fat and way high in carbs/sugar.. )
He does use greek yogurt and whey protein but defends them since they are the most pure and completely lactose free. If you google, you might see some stuff on it i guess.

    I don’t follow the news on the latest diet trends anymore– it’s too exhausting! I’m a big believer in making gradual changes, and focusing on whole, unprocessed foods, rather than trying to figure out certain the exact “macronutrient ratios” that work best for weight loss. As always, it’s ultimately up to you to decide what is best for you and your body.

Can you please share your exact recipe measurements for the lunch smoothie? thanks you – it looks so good.

    Megan

    Yes, I can do that for a future post!

Lauren @ Fun, Fit and Fabulous!

I have never tried goat’s milk yogurt. I would love to try it. I’ll have to look next time I am at the store. With the warmer temps, I am lovin gmy green smoothies even more. I have one every afternoon to get me geared up for my 5:30pm workout!

Brooke

What brand of 70% dark chocolate chips do you recommend?

    Megan

    I buy the kind from Whole Foods– I believe it’s their 365 brand of 70% dark chocolate chunks.

Shannon

Will you ever making videos? I am nerdy to watch stuff like food being made! ๐Ÿ™‚

Colleen

Hi,
I noticed you used ground cinnamin in your yogurt. I’ve been reading that there is a difference between cassia cinnamon and ceylon cinnamom and that you can’t tell the difference between the two when you buy them grounded.Cassia cinnamon can have some detrimental affects on you if you eat it every day;whereas the ceylon cinnamon has no bad effects no matter how much you eat. What kind of cinnamon do you use and have you heard anything about this?

Natallia

Tried goat’s milk yogurt with cinnamon and maple syrup….sooo good! I bought yogurt at Trader Joes,they didn’t have organic. Do you buy organic? Which brand is good?

jeanne

Yum!!! I am with you on the strawberries! Berries, banana and coffee has been my breakfast the last three days! I’ve also been on a lentil kick. Last week it was peanut butter. I love listening to our bodies ๐Ÿ™‚

I just ordered some Sunwarrior Protein powder in Natural. Can’t wait to try it! I recently returned to Vegan eating and all I had in the house was WHEY. BLAHG! I couldn’t tolerate that stuff even if I didn’t eat like a vegan. I hope this one is better. I plan to add it to my green smoothies.
Have you ever tried baking with it? My hubby isn’t vegan, though he has agreed once the non-vegan stuff is out of the house it will only be replaced with vegan stuff. In the meantime to help him use up the non-vegan protein powder I’ve been using it to make him protein cakes. He really likes them, so I wonder if once the whey is gone if this could be a good substitute…??? Would love to know if anyone has tried baking with this.

    Megan

    I’ve never tried baking with any protein powder– for some reason, that idea just doesn’t appeal to me. But, maybe I’ll end up trying it someday. Please let us know if it works well for you!
