I just finished a huge work project so I gave myself a half hour to putter around. I decided to try a recipe in one of the Eat Clean Diet books for a green smoothie involving kale, parsley, fresh pineapple, ginger, wheatgrass (which I skipped because I don’t have any), lime, avocado, almond milk, and protein powder.
You’re supposed to juice the leafy stuff and fruit and then blend it with the rest afterwards. I don’t have a juicer so I just went the food processor/blender route and it was super labor intensive. The end result tastes like grass…. Virtuous grass, but still grass. I guess I’ll attempt this again one day if I ever get an actual juicer.
I may or may not have just sandwiched natural peanut butter between two squares of dark chocolate.
And I’m sober! When I start procrasti-snacking on near-stoner food, it’s time to take a break from the computer and go for a brisk walk.
TV-watching snack… Weird dish, right? I guess it was meant for banana splits or something.
Afternoon snack at the Frothy Monkey coffeehouse, to which I was drawn because of the name: iced coffee with almond milk (!) and a gluten-free, no-sugar added almond butter cookie
Time for fruit salad featuring a watermelon from the garden!
I had this (and coffee!) as a pre workout snack, and I think it’s one of my favorite flavors so far… But, I need to look up one of those homemade Larabar recipes because I feel kind of foolish paying $1+ per serving of mashed up fruit and nuts.
The best coconut water is the kind straight from a coconut that’s just been hacked open by a guy with a machete.
Snack while I try to figure out dinner: date-almond shake. (One serving has about two chopped dates, a couple chopped almonds, 1 TB oats, and 3/4 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk.)
I’m gonna be sad when mango season is over.
This was the best post workout shake/liquid meal: a frozen cubed mango, a cup of coconut water, vanilla whey, and ice.
