Hi my lovelies! As per usual, its What I Ate Wednesday again!
Plant based vegan style, with lots of chocolate-y goodness and a little red wine 😉 Hope you guys are having a great week!
Every single morning, water, water water, before anything else. Water is crucial in keeping my skin clear and smooth. I use this ginormous mason jar all day every day because no one cup is ever big enough?? Plus, I can measure out my water intake since I aim for 2-3 liters per day.
Before breakfast though, its always 24 ounces (3 cups) of filtered water, today with 1/2 lemon and 1/4 teaspoon spirulina powder. Spirulina in small amounts is virtually tasteless, so there’s no nasty green taste and it gives me a little extra energy and detox power (P.S. a post is coming on friday!)
I feel like a mermaid.
There’s a new smoothie in town… and its made with a secret ingredient… frozen cauliflower.
YESSS! Cauliflower. And no, you do not taste the cauliflower, but its literally the creamiest smoothie ever and the extra veggie power makes me so happy! After seeing smoothies made with cauliflower all over instagram, I knew it was time to try it out. Go make this ASAP. I promise, you will love it.
2 big handfuls of spinach, 1 ripe banana, 1 cup frozen cauliflower, 2 tablespoons hemp seeds, 1/2 teaspoon maca, 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, 1 scoop Vega Protein and Greens, 1/2 cup filtered water + 1/2 cup almond milk! Top with more coconut and hemp. YUM. Bring on the veggies.
Later on while typing away, I grazed on all kinds of things. A handful of cacao nibs for energy, an apple, a larabar (banana chocolate chip is my fave lately) and don’t be mad at me… a cup of coffee with Silk Almond Vanilla Creamer. Yep, I went back to coffee over the weekend.. oops.
Lunch was steamed broccoli and leftovers from my tofu ricotta lasagna I made on Sunday night. It rocks my world! With all the snow we’ve had the past couple days, I need lots of warming comfort food, plus it has tons of zucchini and spinach.
I sipped on a little kombucha throughout the afternoon! For some pre-workout fuel, I snacked on chocolate chia overnight oats – adapted from my PB Chia Overnight Oats – with cacao powder instead of peanut butter and topped with cacao nibs and coconut!
After I got home from the gym with Terry, I made a quick protein shake with vega protein and got to cooking since he was coming over for dinner (shared it on insta stories!). I made lentil veggie tacos, with whatever I had on hand, which happened to be 1 zucchini, 1 tomato, 1/4 red onion, 1/3 jalapeño, 2 cups kale, 2 cans of cooked lentils and a bunch of taco spices (chili powder, paprika, cayenne, cumin, sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder and red pepper flakes). He loves spicy food so I always up the spiciness level when he’s here. We topped with them lettuce and guac. I also snuck in a glass of red wine!
Finished out the night with my Calming Magnesium Beauty Sleep Tea!
