Here is my high-ish raw, all organic food for Sunday.
Breakfast: I’m excited to share that I actually went to the movies yesterday morning!!!! The first movie I’ve seen in well over a year. My mom took me to see The Help. We both read (and LOVED) the book, so we couldn’t wait to see it once it came to theaters. Let me tell ya… it did NOT disappoint. As my friend said, and I wholeheartedly agree, it’s one of the best book to film adaptations ever. Soo… about my breakfast… I was in a hurry so I whipped up a quick protein shake and grabbed a Boku bar.
Lunch: After we returned from the movie, we were pretty famished. I made mom, Greg, and myself huge organic salads with Garlic Ginger Almond Dressing (so good! Have you made this yet?). The salads had romaine, purple cabbage, chickpeas (cooked), orange bell pepper, cucumber, raisins, apple, kiwi, and tomatoes. After our salads, we had Chocolate Almond Anytime Pudding. It’s my latest recipe and it’s friggin’ awesome. I’m sharing the recipe this week. Be sure to check back!
Snack: organic banana and walnuts. So simple but so delicious and satisfying.
Dinner (cooked): Bean soup with nutritional yeast and bit of brown rice stirred in, alongside a sandwich of tempe between two slices of sprouted, lightly toasted bread with lettuce, and a bit of vegan mayo mixed with salsa. Here’s what I do to make it lickity-split! I take the tempeh, lay it flat, and cut it in half (each half is enough for one sandwich, so I put one half back in the fridge unless I’m making Greg one, too). Then, I take it lengthwise, by standing it up, and “thin it” into two pieces (hope that makes sense). Then, I put those two pieces in my toaster (one piece in each toaster slot), just like you do with bread! I toast it until it’s slightly golden and warm (this way I don’t have to cook it in oil or dirty a pan by cooking it). Put the sandwich together with the bread and mayo/salsa mix, and voila! One seriously satisfying sandwich.
Dessert: Chocolate Almond Anytime Pudding!!!! (two servings!)
On a side note, I’m going to start taking Udo’s Oil. I’ll report back with my experience in a few weeks or so. I read Udo Erasmus’ dense book, Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill as well as many glowing reviews of his oil. I’m excited to try it!
