Breakfast: fruit salad that consisted of 2 small apples and 6 large strawberries, chopped into small pieces- I've been having plain fruit for breakfast because I'm no longer running 4 miles right after eating breakfast (UNFORTUNATELY) Also, Skinny Bitch (the book) taught me that fruit on an empty stomach in the morning cleanses your body! I also learned a lot more from this book about factory farming and nutrition so I highly recommend it to those who are considering the vegetarian lifestyle.
Lunch: this weather + fresh veggies = huge refreshing salad: red bell pepper, cukes (cucumbers), baby carrots (probably going to turn orange soon), annie's lite ginger dressing, FRESH salsa, oh yeah and spinach as the base of course- sorry I don't have a picture, but variations of this salad is a staple in my life so i'll probably post one tomorrow along with a recipe.
I then experienced my first RAW/VEGAN macaroon, thanks to the twins of pure2raw!!
It was DELICIOUSSSS, and I ate it guilt-free since it's raw and plant-based! (I also ate one of the chocolate ones...had to taste-test them both of course) once i purchase my dehydrator i will definitely be making a bunch of those, but until then, pure2raw will be getting more business from me, especially because they gave me two free samples of flatbreads: cinnamon date and onion-free spinach. the cinnamon date was amazing:
(Saving the spinach one for tomorrow)
Dinner: I'm so excited to use one of the new appliances that came in the mail- a spiralizer! This is Gena's (from Choosing Raw) recipe for zucchini marinara.
It came out great...however i didn't have oregano, thyme, or stevia for the sauce so it was a little tasteless, but i'm new to this so hopefully after some ingredient experimentation i'll have it down. I highly recommend investing in a spiralizer, it's a great and healthy way to satisfy your pasta craving.
That's all for now, I'll be back tomorrow hopefully with a fresh pressed fruit juice for breakfast (bought a juicer today!)
