As I mentioned in my post from this morning, I want to share some of the items I have been eating.
7:30 am Breakfast was a chocolate smoothie. Bet you never had one like this.
5 oz spinach
2 cups frozen blueberries
1 T ground flaxseed
1/4 cup rice or soy milk
2 T unsweetened cocoa
Blend all ingredients and enjoy!
It was not the best I ever had, but it wasn’t bad.
Note: I was not hungary until about 12:30
I had a mixed greens salad with a simple dressing.
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1 t Mrs. Dash
1 /4 t garlic powder
Mix well and add a little water to thin. I added just a little walnuts and raisins.
I had about 1 cup of cooked mixed vegetables.
About 3:00 I had some grapes.
I walked into the door and the smell hit me…. Oh My!
Laura made a batch of 100% whole wheat bread and the whole house smelt wonderful! Thanks Honey!
I had 2 slices of bread 1 with homemade peach preserves that Laura made last year and 1 slice with honey. WHO NEEDS DESSERT!
Of course, I started my dinner out with my salad, and Laura really went all out.
She even put out heart plates….
Don’t forget I need my beans. Laura cooked a pot of beans all day and all she did is add a little garlic powder, pepper, cumin, red pepper flakes, oregano, and at the end a little salt.
This is a very good menu for a day. I got all my raw vegetables, all my cooked vegetables, beans, grains, fruits, nuts, and I splurged just a bit with Laura’s peach preserves.
Eat to live!
