I mentioned briefly in a recent post about having some increased allergy trouble, consequently, my meals haven’t been all that thrilling lately.
I’ve been trying to scale back certain foods, namely nuts, seeds, and dairy, and focus more on certain fruits and vegetables, chicken, brown rice, and beans.
While I wasn’t going to post until I felt a bit better, I thought maybe it would be interesting (?) to see some of what I eat during this kind of period, so here we go!
I’ve been focusing on the fruits I know agree with me best, namely apples and pears, so they’ve both ended up in a morning smoothie…
I add in a piece of avocado to give it some creaminess, along with water and raw honey. As I said above, I’m steering clear of nuts and seeds right now, including my beloved hemp.
I’ve had trouble with mold in the past, and nuts and seeds are notorious for carrying it.
Apples, apples, and more apples….
There are a few pears in the mix, but apples are getting me through afternoons right now.
Soup has been a staple for me lately.
I saute some onion, garlic, carrot, and celery, and add in whatever other veggies I have hanging around the fridge.
I like to add in a can of beans along with some mung bean noodles for protein and taste, making it kind of like a healthy minestrone soup.
A simple, easy, and healthy snack I always return to is cucumber slices with sea salt and apple cider vinegar…
For dinner, we made the type of meal my husband wishes we would have every night…
Roasted chicken, baked coconut oil fries, and petite green peas, of which I eat more delicious, crispy fries than anything. 🙂
This is the type of meal I grew up eating, except my mom would boil our potatoes.
While I’ve been steering clear of recipes, I have still had a sweet tooth, so I made the simplest treat I could think of…
I just blended Medjool dates and unsweetened coconut shreds with a pinch of sea salt. These were exceptionally good though, and they made a great end to the day.
What have you been eating this week? Do you have a simple go-to sweet treat?
