What I Ate Wednesday

Morning

green smoothie in a glass

Now that I’ve been reunited with my Vitamix, I’m on a smoothie kick in the mornings. My latest mix has included spirulina, fresh spinach, hemp protein powder, frozen bananas, organic sunflower butter, vanilla, cinnamon and homemade almond milk.

I also tried adding some grass-fed gelatin to my smoothie yesterday… which was interesting. It was flavorless, but it added little specks of chewy gelatin throughout the drink! Luckily, they were small enough that they didn’t clog my straw, but I’m not sure the texture was appealing enough to try again.

Afternoon

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m eating smaller snacks throughout the afternoon to accommodate the changing amount of space in my stomach. I started off the early afternoon with half a box of these organic strawberries, which were perfectly sweet and delicious.

Later, I whipped up a large plate of Spicy “Tuna” rolls. If they weren’t so time-consuming to prepare, I’d eat these every single day!

Dinner

I’m really excited about our new “serving” bowls, which are the perfect size for my personal large dinner salads. This one was filled with mixed greens, oven-roasted beets, cherry tomatoes from my garden, a few ounces of raw goat cheddar, and dressed with raw apple cider vinaigrette.ย 

For dessert, Austin brought home cookies from our favorite bakery! (No picture, because we were too excited to eat them.)

Just a tip–when I add gelatin to my smoothies, I first pour the milk in, add the gelatin and blend immediately!!! I will then add remaining ingredients. I’ve never experienced gelatin chunks in my smoothies ๐Ÿ™‚ Just in case you feel like giving it another go!

    Megan

    Thanks for the tip!

Megan:

What brand sunflower butter do you like?

    Megan

    I buy the Once Again organic brand.

Maria

Thanks for your gelatin tip last week! I bought some and made watermelon jello last night. Not very sweet and I didn’t strain the watermelon after food-processing it so it wasn’t super smooth, but it was a refreshing healthy snack.

Does anyone have a good smoothie that uses parsely? I have parsley in my frig. ready to use.

Michele

Where did you find these salad bowls? I’ve been looking for some! Can you email me a link or post one? Thanks!

    Megan

    I don’t see them online, but I bought the bowls at Crate & Barrel!

Teesha

Hi Megan, a few questions
๐Ÿ™‚
1. Is this smoothie even tasty? Or do you drink it because you know it is healthy? ๐Ÿ™‚

2. Also, when you eat dessert how long do you wait between dinner and dessert to avoid improper food combining?

3. … and what time of the day do you eat your last meal before bed?

Love your wednesday blog!

    Megan

    To answer your questions:

    1. Yes, it’s tasty! I don’t consume anything that doesn’t taste good, just because it’s healthy.

    2. The cookies aren’t properly combined to begin with, so timing doesn’t really matter.

    3. I don’t time my meals specifically around my bedtime, but I usually finish my meal 2-3 hours before bed.

The “tuna” rolls look great. I want to try to make those soon!

That green smoothie looks delicious!

Yesterday I was looking with interest at smoothie recipes with gelatin, but when I read about your experience I suddenly remembered the one time I tried to drink gelatin mixed in orange juice to make my fingernails stronger (that would have been spring, 1963โ€ฆ). The mix made me gag so badly that I could never do it again. Despite the first comment by Bobbi Kenow, which is very helpful, I’m now not sure I want to invest in gelatin. Thank you for the wakeup call! ๐Ÿ™‚

This morning I threw together a smoothie to use some of the Greek yogurt I froze when we went on vacation. The thawed yogurt is basically liquid, so I figured that it would work in smoothies. I used a little ice, half a banana, a cup of the yogurt, about 1.5 tbsp. cocoa powder, stevia, and a splash of almond/coconut milk. It came out pretty nice.

Denice

Hi Megan, is it possible to include in your daily menus the timing in between each meal? This would help plan ours as well .
Ex- Smoothie at 7:00 am , strawberry at 10:00 ?
thanks

De

    Teesha

    Yes times that you eat would be helpful i agree., thank you

Tara

Are you eating smaller meals now that your tummy has a limited amount of space………yes we know:-)

Kirsty

Hi Megan,

Love your website – it is so informative! And your salads always look so yummy with the raw goats cheddar! Where do you get it and do you have any idea if I would be able to buy some here in the UK?? I found this in one of the larger supermarkets but it doesn’t say if it is raw or not so not sure if it would be the same thing….

Thank you!!!

Tanya

Just a tip – don’t add the gelatin to the smoothie prior to mixing because it will break it down on a cellualr level which you don’t want – you want to consume gelatin as it is – so adding it afterwards is best – you need to by the one that is good for hot and cold mixtures – I buy from Great Lakes green can – and it goes in hot and cold drinks without clumping!
Just found your site – love the recipes!
