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.
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!
Even later, I whipped up a couple pasture-raised eggs cooked in grass-fed butter, sauteed greens, and nutritional yeast.
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.
For dessert, Austin brought home cookies from our favorite bakery! (No picture, because we were too excited to eat them.)
