What I ate Wednesday


photo (5)

For breakfast today I didn’t eat food but just had some fresh juice from my juicer. Sometimes I just feel better if I skip breakfast and do an early lunch. It gives my body a sort of mini detox considering it has been without food since dinner yesterday. Just a large cup( or 3) of juice and I’m good till lunch. I even have a better workout on an empty stomach.  The secret to making juice more affordable is to dilute it with water and add a little bit of stevia sweetener to extend it out. Then you can drink several cups throughout the day instead of just 1 concentrated cup in the morning. This is my juice today:

Lime sunshine

5 carrots

1 gala apple

1 lime

1/2 orange

2-3 ” piece of fresh ginger

handful of cilantro

2 stalks of celery

1/2 cucumber

Enjoy!  It tastes even better in a fancy cup 🙂

Raw breakfast cereal (vegan/grain-free)

I’m not much of a cereal person. We don’t eat a lot of grains especially wheat and don’t think grains are that good for you because of the gluten and anti-nutrients that prevent vitamin/mineral absorption. Although I do think oats have some good calming and nourishing qualities that are beneficial especially for promoting yin (the fluid portion of our body) in the middle of winter or dry weather. Seeds also contain some anti nutrients and are easiest to digest after they have been soaked. I haven’t tried this with soaked seeds yet but maybe I will try it-I really like the crunch though so we will see!

This is one of the raw breakfast cereals I make for my kids:

1 large apple shredded(large shreds)

1 large or 2 medium carrots shredded(large shreds)

1 handful of pumpkin seeds

1 handful of sunflower seeds

1 small handful of golden raisins

1 tbs chia seeds

1 handful of shredded coconut

1 tbs of sesame seeds (optional)

1/2 -1 cup coconut milk or almond/coconut milk

vanilla stevia to taste

1 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger powder (optional)

This is for 2 servings
