So, yesterday I went a bit overboard on the fruit. To make up for it, today was fruit-free. That’s right. The sweetest thing I ate today was a carrot. And, dang it if I don’t feel good.
Breakfast: Quickie Carrot Cake Bowl
2 carrots, shredded
1 T. shredded coconut
2 T. chopped walnuts
1 t. cinnamon
1/8 t. dried ginger
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
Morning snack: Handful of roasted chickpeas
Lunch: Salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, carrots, garbanzo beans, artichoke hearts, and mushrooms
Afternoon snack: Handful of raw almonds
Dinner: Broccoli in a Spicy Cilantro Sauce
1 small bunch broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
1 T. coconut flour
1/4 cup water
1 T. peanut butter
1 t. green curry paste
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
juice of 1/2 a lime
unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
Steam the broccoli until crisp-tender (about 5 minutes). Mix coconut flour, water, curry paste and peanut butter in a pan. (I used the same pan that I steamed the broccoli in.) Simmer until thick and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice and cilantro. Toss with the broccoli. Serve topped with the peanuts.
So question – is it helpful for me to post these “what I ate today” posts? And can you live without pictures? There’s just no way I can take good pictures of all my meals, and I’ve always sort of disliked the blurry “here’s what I ate today” pics you sometimes see on blogs that chronicle every meal of the day.
