For breakfast today I just had some fresh juice from my juicer. I have been exercising a lot lately so I need to start taking in more iron especially since I don’t eat red meat. So today I used beets in my juice for a little extra iron boost. This is my happy liver juice, it includes ingredients that are especially good for detoxing the liver.

Happy liver juice

1″ thick slice of raw beet

4 medium carrots

1 lemon

1/2 lime

1-2″ piece of ginger

1 apple

2 stalks celery

handful cauliflower

For lunch I wasn’t hungry for a big meal so I just snacked on some black bean chips and made a smoothie. I made a Polynesian pineapple coconut smoothie that was really rich and filling. I am leaving for Hawaii for the first time (YAY!) in a week so I am going to start doing lots of Polynesian dishes in the next few days. I also made some molasses cookies to help build my iron stores. I have those recipes below.

Polynesian pineapple smoothie

1 cup crushed pineapple

2 medium carrots

1/4 cup shredded coconut

1 apple

2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

1 1/2 cups of water

1″ chunk of ginger

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Handful of kale if you want a green smoothie

Molasses cookies( gluten free)

1/2 cup coconut flour( I freshly grind mine from shredded coconut)

1/2 cup ground almonds

3 tablespoons rice flour

3 tablespoons ground flaxseeds

2 tablespoons mung /lentil paste(gives them a more cooling effect-molasses is very heating)

1/2 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup water

1 tablespoon applesauce

1 teaspoon vinegar

pinch of sea salt

For dinner I had a roasted veggie(carrots, beets, kale, and onions) with pumpkin seed pesto in a black bean wrap. I thought they turned out great but the kids didn’t go for the wraps so maybe I will work on that recipe a little more to see if it will pass the kid test. I also made a spiced carrot and pear pudding topped with raisins for desert. This could easily be a breakfast porridge also. This definitely passed the kid test so I will leave the recipe for that and my pumpkin seed pesto here:
