WIAW

Hey! Short post today, but I managed to document almost everything I ate and drank on Monday so I can officially bring you a WIAW! (That’s “What I Ate Wednesday” for any newbies).

Started the day with warm water and lemon, as usual. Worked out, then made a giant batch of beet/apple/carrot/ginger/spinach juice. I thought I was going to have half of my batch and make something else, but my body asked me instead to just drink both servings of juice. I usually like to get some more protein in for breakfast (usually via protein powder in a smoothie), but a smoothie sounded too cold and, like I said, for whatever reason, that morning tons of juice sounded more appealing than making anything else.

After that I headed to a coffee shop to syllabus-plan and enjoyed some green tea, as usual.

I’ve mentioned before that my body prefers to graze rather than heartily-meal during the day. I snacked on these pretty delicious Two Moms in the Raw bars and a little after that some hummus and carrots.

This carrot turmeric kale ginger soup has been my dinner for the majority of nights since the beginning of 2015. It’s so simple (all I do is boil carrots in water then put the water, carrots, kale, turmeric roots, and ginger root in the Vitamix, and whirl it all together), and it seriously makes me feel so great! The magic of turmeric is real! This time I added salt, a dollop of tahini, and some fresh pea sprouts on top.

I’ve been solid about cutting last month’s post-dinner Christmas cookie habit, but I still like a little sumin’ sumin’ at the end of the night sometimes. Tonight I baked an apple, and put a dollop of almond butter, cinnamon, and goji berries on top. So yummy.

Before bed every night I have lots of water, one glass of which is mixed with my can’t-live-without-it Natural Calm. (Great for sleep, digestion, and stress!)

    I picked up some of those Two Moms bars at a TJMaxx (yay for discounts!) and they are so yummy! I have the cocoa almond variety. I am currently boiling cinnamon water to rid our place of a burnt popcorn odor that has lingered for almost a week, and now I really wish I had an apple! It was like I could smell your picture!

      I have been craving bread/bread-like things because of the weather, and I always wanted to try that recipe! Thanks for reminding me of it, I’m totally going to make it. : )
