Yesterday I ran 3 miles and did an hour of weight lifting at the gym. Then Mackenzie and I took a trip to Ross, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods... I could spend so much money in there, I have to be careful.
My eats for Saturday...
Sprouted grain toast with coconut puree (blended coconut meat and water)
1 raw energy bar
Salad with guacamole, veggies and mango vinaigrette at High Tech Burrito while on our shopping trip.
Frozen yogurt on the trip home, Mackenzie insists on stopping for this... it is like a tradition/ treat for the 50 minute windy ride home. I topped mine with carob chips and almonds.
After getting home I decided to try a new recipe from the cocktail section of Living Raw Food by Sarma Melngailis. The book has recipes for some really yummy looking martini's. I drink alcohol very rarely but wanted to try one. I picked up some sake at Whole Foods and made a spin off of one in the book.
Cantaloupe and Blood Orange Sake Martini
2 small blood oranges
juice of 1 lemon
squirt of agave
I blended everything except the sake until smooth. I added some sake, to taste, and shook with ice until very cold. Poured into a pretty glass and enjoyed. I had leftover juice... this is enough for a few drinks. It was very good! I want to try other combos of fruit now.
Dinner was a mix of leftovers... the Curry Cilantro Corn Soup I made the other day,
some corn and cherry tomato salad with shredded carrots tossed in and some tofu.
Finished the night with some popcorn dusted with carob powder.
I got up this morning and went running but only ended up doing 12 miles, not 15... I just didn't have it in me. Maybe I need to try eating something else before my run.. suggestions? Please!!! The protein powder, banana, nut butter smoothie just didn't cut it today. Maybe oatmeal or something.
I came home from my run and was starving so I grabbed the quickest thing I could find, some greek yogurt (I have not been eating much dairy at all lately) with coconut cream and some of the quinoa krispies I made.
I never thought dairy bothered me, but boy did it today... talk about stomach cramps. Did I used to feel this way and just didn't know it, or am I more sensitive now? Who knows? What I do know... no more dairy! I also had a green juice.
I also had some of these tasty things I picked up TJ's... yummy!
I wish I had bought more because between Mackenzie and I we finished the bag!
So, I had mentioned that I needed to get some veggie plants planted after starting some seeds...
Notice some are missing?
Bad doggie! Good thing he is cute!
Haha... notice the one ear back, I know I did something bad look?
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Check back next week for some raw goodies give away!
