I don’t know what got into me today, but I photographed ev-er-y-thing that I consumed today. Don’t get used to it.
If you look up “perfection” in the dictionary, this is what you’ll find:
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 frozen banana – cooked
- 1/2 T ground flax
- 1 T flax p.nut buttah
After a sweaty 1-hour spin class and round of conditioning, it was time for…
Wrap ‘n’ Roll.
- 1/2 whole wheat lavash
- organic baby romaine
- organic hummus
- organic tomatoes
- red onion
… and 1/2 cup of cold quinoa in a cute ‘cup’. I made this salad the other day by cooking 1 cup organic quinoa in 2 cups of water for 12-14 minutes. Then I added organic tomatoes, edamame, 1 ear of fresh corn, olive oil, juice of half a lemon, chevre, sea salt and lotsa pepper.
There was still a little room left in my stomach after polishing off my whole grains + veggies.
Enter raw, organic coconut butter.
Who knew coconuts were so nutritious? Since the healthy blogging community is cocoNUTS for this stuff, I decided to try a portable pouch before committing to a $15 jar.
I know what you’re thinking…
If you look up “heaven” in the dictionary, this is what you’ll find:
- 1 piece of Trader Joe’s quinoa wheat bread
- 1/2 T Artisana raw, organic coconut butter
- 8 Guittard milk chocolate chips – yes milk chocolate [Who is this girl?]
Later came Starbucks + Target. Don’t they always go hand in hand? ; ) I know… not my normal latte. I spiced up my Starbucks sip today with an iced grande non-fat 2-pump vanilla caramel macchiato [quite the mouthful, eh?]. It was tasty, but the extra sugar will not become my regular.
Duh duh dinnah.
Don’t fear the ugliness. ‘Twas scrumptious.
Who eats soup on a warm June evening? I guess I do. Here we have ~1/2 c. organic tomato bisque, 1/4 avocado, and extra sharp white cheddar with [another] piece of quinoa bread toasted with real butter.
Enough with the paper towels already, right? It’s no way to go green. Perhaps I should purchase this set of pretty plates.
A petite dinner equals a tummy yearning for more. This was dessert, I suppose… sweetened by nature.
1 Crunchy Carrot + 1/2 box of Raisins
… with a side of love.
If we analyze the eats I ate, they were heavier on the carbohydrates than I typically prefer; but, if at the end of the day I am happy for have been able to enjoy another healthy day of my life accompanied by an array of nutritious foods, then that’s all that matters.
So You Think You Can Dance left tears in my eyes and hope in my heart tonight. Season Seven – the best is yet to come! No more dance talk ‘til Wednesday…
Until then, we’ll stick with the food.
Good night. Sleep tight.
