This one included an entire romaine heart, avocado, frozen banana, organic frozen mixed berries, vanilla, raw cacao powder, cinnamon, water and ice. The flavor of romaine doesn’t disappear into the smoothie the way spinach does, but it was quite refreshing!
I’ve been breaking my “lunch” up into two smaller meals lately, because my appetite just isn’t as large as it used to be. (My stomach is growing, but the room in there is shrinking!) I started off the early afternoon with a bowl of fresh blueberries, followed a little bit later by a bowl of chia pudding.
Later in the afternoon, I had a large romaine salad, topped with roasted bell peppers, tomatoes, goat cheese and a lemon dressing.
We’ve been going to birth preparation classes each week, so we ended up dining out after our class. I had a large salad topped with cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, feta, and wild-caught salmon.
And when we got home, I tried out our newest kitchen gadget…
I picked up one of these Zoku Slush & Shake makers to see if they were really as cool as they sounded. You simply pour a cold liquid into the pre-chilled cup, and within 7 minutes, you have a slushie! I used a homemade chocolate coconut milk as the liquid, so the results were delicious.
