A quick food journal post… been swamped with motherhood lately :) Today was moderately raw, all vegan, and all organic.
Large serving of (cooked) oat groats topped with raw almond milk (I’m soaking my oats tonight so I can have them RAW tomorrow) – oats are great for building my milk supply… not that I need the help, but it’s still a good tip.
Went to the gym and had a great strength training workout. On the way home I ate a Boku bar.
Took a nap with Kamea (she was up most of the night prior so I was tired!). Woke up from nap and had one apple and 1/2 grapefruit. About 20 minutes after that Greg and I shared Cucumber Avocado Boats but this time I used red onion in it and fresh basil from our CSA. I was still hungry after that so I had 3 cups of green smoothie (water, raw cashew milk, frozen blueberries, romaine lettuce, banana, cayenne pepper, homemade curry powder, fresh ginger, and Sun Warrior protein powder)
Partially homemade (semi-cooked) soup. So, here is what I do. I take a box of Fig’s vegan soup and put it in a pot. I add a can of Eden Organic’s beans and some water. Then, I added CSA grown turnip, carrot, zucchini, and onion. Also added nutritional yeast, hot sauce, clove of garlic, and tamari. Let it warm. Delish!!! I had two big mugs of it. And…. I was still hungry! What can I say? I’m breastfeeding (burning major calories) AND working out hard in the gym. I gotta eat! I had two slices of Ezekial toast and a fabulous raw spread on it that I didn’t write the recipe but it was basically: 1/2 cup soaked cashews, water, one small onion bulb from the CSA, 5 to 6 leaves of basil from the CSA, 3 to 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt, couple pinches of black pepper, and splash of lemon juice. It. Is. So. Good!
I probably still didn’t eat enough though… maybe I’ll snack on something later tonight if I’m not asleep.
I’m taking a break from supplements the past couple of days (I like to do that every couple of weeks).
