I’ve been starting my day with a basic green smoothie:
1.5 c. of Vanilla Almond Milk
and a lot of spinach (maybe it’s about 2.5 cups? I just put it in by the handfuls)
about 2-3 tbsp. of Agave for sweetness
SO. SO. GOOD.
For lunch I had a black bean salad type dish I made out of black beans, fire roasted tomatoes (from a tin), red onion, capsicum, jalapenos, and lots of cilantro. Work has been so crazy as of late I’ve neglected to take a photo here or there of my lunch.
My snack was an apple with peanut butter… it doesn’t make for an exciting picture.
Dinner was a pot of soup that I had put together over the weekend. It was a rainy weekend and when I woke up I thought about how I wanted to make a good big pot of veggie soup. Even though it was the first week of spring and I’m pumped about growing all my veggies and getting my garden together and grilling/roasting lots of veggies… I just couldn’t shake the want to make a big ol’ pot of veggie soup! Perhaps it was because I was kinda robbed of fall/winter soups? Between 10-12 hour work days, holiday, packing, moving, unpacking, surgery… I didn’t really get around to making soup. I didn’t even make anything in the slow cooker!
So, I put together a veggie soup with more fire roasted tomatoes, courgette, squash, fresh rosemary, fresh parsley, red potatoes, great northern beans, shallots, and lots of garlic. I was going to put in some kale, but I opted to have a kale salad with my soup. Is there anything better than a kale, fennel, and apple salad? Yes, but not at the moment.
I’ve lacked some fruit and protein the past week(ish?). I’m trying to work on that… I haven’t had the time to go pick strawberries or blackberries since they’ve been in season and I didn’t even realize that I’ve left out protein. Plus, I’ve realized I need to put in an order with SunWarrior STAT!
