What I Ate Wednesday

Morning

breakfast smoothieI started my day off very early with a Cherry Chocolate Shake (recipe coming tomorrow), featuring spinach and avocado.

When I felt hungry later in the morning, I ended up snacking on a bowl of goat’s milk yogurt, with a splash of pure maple syrup and cinnamon added.

Lunch

salad wraps on a plate

For lunch, I was craving cheese. I started off with a marinated salad of chopped cucumbers, tomatoes and goat feta, tossed in a lemon dressing. Followed by a set of goat cheese “roll ups.” I simply roll my favorite sandwich ingredients into large romaine leaves, for a quick and easy gluten-free wrap.

Un-pictured: I ended up snacking on a few pieces of Raw Macadamia Nut Fudge when a sweet craving hit later.

Dinner

DinnerFor dinner, I started off with an experimental Caesar salad. I wasn’t thrilled with how the dressing turned out– it didn’t taste anything like traditional Caesar dressing– but it was good enough.

Followed by a large steamed sweet potato, topped with grass-fed butter, and lightly-sauteed broccoli.

Dessert

almond milk slushieI’m back to these vanilla “slushies” in the evening– they’re so refreshing! It’s just a blend of almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla and ice, and it tastes pretty similar to vanilla ice cream.

Hi Megan! I’m such a HUGE fan of your blog! Your recipe creativity has seriously helped keep me motivated to eat healthier. I know you posted it a while back, but I can’t find it. Do you have the portions for the vanilla “slush”?

Even though you said it didn’t turn out, that cesar salad looks awesome! I use the bags of baby lettuce and mixed greens for salads so much that I forget about how good crunchy romaine can be, thanks!!

This day’s worth of meals look so refreshing! My favorite were the lunch items :0). Also, I’m curious; what kind of vanilla do you use? I think you’ve mentioned it before, but I don’t remember and don’t know where the link might be. (I’m looking for extracts that don’t bother my asthma. Though, I can seem to drink wine ok, I thought it might be the alcohol that’s used in my extract that’s bothering me.)

Hi Megan, my diet is based on SCD and your blog is always a huge help! I regularly make homemade SCD yogurt and am interested in trying it out with goat’s milk. Do you make your own yogurt? If so, do you have any tips/tricks for making it with goat’s milk? Like, what should I use as a starter? And does goat’s milk heat differently?

Also, I’ve been in love with your vanilla slushie lately, too! I’ve been adding 0.5-1 cup of frozen kale or spinach and some cinnamon to it…delicious!

What about the effect of goat milk on eczema? I avoid dairy due to eczem

Karen

The lunch wraps look delicious !! ๐Ÿ™‚
I find myself craving more salads lately.I have a question about the goat cheese.Do you find it easy on your stomach?I’m lactose intolerant and I’m just wondering if goat cheese might be an option since cows milk/yogurt and cheese only create disaster in my digestive system.What brand do you usually get?

Thanks!

    Megan

    In my personal experience, raw goat cheese does seem to be easier on my stomach than cow’s dairy, which used to give me stomach aches. My favorite brands are Mt. Sterling for their extra-sharp raw goat cheddar, Redwood Hill Farms for their raw goat feta, and Alta Dena for a mild raw goat cheddar. They are all available at my local Whole Foods, and other natural grocers.
