Okay I’m joining the fun ya’ll. Peas & Crayons started this trend called What I Ate Wednesday. I usually only post one recipe at a time but here is my day pretty much laid out. WIAW madness ensues!
The nutmeg and cinnamon added a wonderful flavor to this already slightly sweet juice. I could literally drink this every day.
Plus, the beet juice mustache makes it that much more fun ;)
Snack: Larabar and an orange
Lunch: Quinoa with sauteed black-eyed peas and swiss chard, topped with toasted pepitas
Dinner was grilled veggies, including eggplant, broccoli, red pepper, portabello mushrooms along with grilled leeks and baby bokchoy. I drizzled the veggies with a little extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled them with dried herbs and red pepper flake. Sooo delish! :) Served alongside some quinoa and toasted pepitas. I also had a raw green salad with a light vinaigrette and almond milk.
And let’s not forget what I made earlier in the afternoon and snacked on throughout the day… Some delicious raw vegan Samoas Fudge Babies, recipe by Chocolate Covered Katie :)
I also drank lots of home brewed iced mint green tea throughout the day.
That wraps up Day 4 of the Crazy Sexy Diet! So far I’m feeling awesome. In reality I haven’t changed much about the way I eat except I’ve cut out gluten, alcohol and sugar (except for small amounts of natural sugars) to give my digestive system a bit of a break. That’s why they call it a cleanse… smooooth sailing ;)
