Delicious rainbow salad tonight… tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, oil-free baked sweet potatoes, cilantro, baby collard greens, scallions, avocado, mushrooms, & pea sprouts on a bed of lotsa (hidden) chopped red leaf lettuce. Also squeezed a bunch of lime juice in.
Juicy mangos & strawbs for lunch today!
Once a year I crave a coffee, and that craving popped up last night. I’ve never been a coffee drinker, it’s just a random craving I get from them to time. Ima wait another day or two, see of it goes away. If not I’ll have to go get my annual fix. 😜
Are the portions you show one serving or more? For example, some of your smoothies make almost 1 litre. :)
Yes, I eat everything shown *unless* otherwise stated. When I started my instagram (and tumblr) last July it was so I could keep track of what I was eating, b/c I wanted to sort of force myself to eat healthier, so I was posting photos of the things that only I ate. And that’s what I still do :). I know the quantities seem rather large sometimes, but I don’t have a super hectic life so I have plenty of time to eat everything. My salads easily take me an hour to eat, for example.
Fun way to eat papaya & strawberries!
Banana-blueberry-chia bowl! 3 bananas (peeled and frozen overnight) blended with 1.5 cups frozen blueberries. I used a food processor, but a blender would work great too. Topped with fresh blueberries, crushed dried mulberries, pumpkin seeds, & white chia-coconut milk pudding (1 tbsp chia seeds mixed with 1/4 cup coconut milk, & left overnight in the fridge).
Sweet apple-cinnamon breakfast bowl mix! I pulsed 4 gala apples, 6 strawberries, 2 heaping tbsp of dried white mulberries, 4 medjool dates, 4 pecans, & 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in my food processor, then mixed in some pomegranate seeds after. Tip: I like to blend the mulberries first, on their own, to make sure they get ground up really fine.
Big salad this evening… chopped baby kale, baby spinach, romaine lettuce, red pepper, zucchini, beets, strawberries, tomatoes, pomegranate seeds & a dressing made by blending 1 small mango, 2 small oranges, 2 teaspoons chia seeds, 3/4 lb strawberries, & a handful of cilantro. Starting to get more and more of my daily leafy greens from my greenhouse, which is nice! Everything that is growing in there kind of paused and didn’t get any bigger for a month or two when the weather was really cold and the days were so short (less sunlight), but they’re growing again now & lots of little seedling are popping up. :)
Enjoyed this delicious layered smoothie earlier today. I blended frozen bananas, frozen raspberries, & fresh strawberries for the smoothie layers, and soaked some white chia seeds in coconut milk overnight for the “chia pudding”. & luckily I snapped this pic right before some melting snow from a tree branch above splashed right into the jar. 😄❄️
