For the past two weeks I have been on a vegan diet, but even stricter. No sweeteners of any kind, no processed ‘cheeses’ or other substitutions that vegans might make. I’ve lost several pounds by not eating as much and what I do eat is clean. I still get my calories, don’t worry, I’m not starving myself.
I should mention that I am not a vegan. I like meat. This ‘diet’ is for three weeks. So, I will eventually be posting things that include some dairy and some meat. Until then… bring on the smoothies!
I cannot begin to describe how delicious this smoothie was. I’m sure you cannot tell from the terrible picture. Oh, the woes of not having an iPhone.
Well, good people of Blogdom I will share what I call the PB+JK smoothie.
A handful of organic kale
A few frozen organic cherries
A spoonful of peanut butter* – I use Arrowhead Mills because it is pesticide free *you can substitute any nut butter
About 3/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup Defense Up juice from Evolution Fresh
1 scoop of raw chocolate protein powder (yes, it’s vegan)
a few ice cubes
And done! It tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
This is my very first post on a blog. Ever! Ahh, the excitement!
I am more and more concerned with the kinds of foods that I am putting into my body. I’m learning about GMOs, the benefits of eating organic and other hidden junk that manufacturers put into their food.
I will keep posting about my findings and hopefully will help you make better choices in the kitchen.
First up! My yummy delicious WARM veggie wrap. While my Hilary’s Eat Well adzuki bean burger toasted up in my toaster oven I warmed up an Ezekiel 4:9 tortilla in the microwave for twenty seconds and I boiled some organic peas, corn and broccoli. On my tortilla I spread on some regular hummus, added some organic kale, the vegetable medley and broke up the veggie burger into pieces. Then, I rolled it up very carefully and was barely able to get a picture of it before it was devoured.
*note: The tortilla isn’t as pliable as a regular four tortilla, so you might get a little messy. But, it’s so worth it!
Also, try it with sweet potato as your veggie, some roasted red pepper hummus or add some quinoa for added protein.
