It may sound odd to some of you, but in an attempt to help both my digestion and my immunity this winter, I've been drinking a combination of warm water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and fresh ginger in the mornings...
...I've definitely noticed a difference for the better and am hoping to continue on with it!
Following my pick-me-up, I made a mango strawberry smoothie....
...I also added in some overripe pear, chopped raw zucchini, raw honey, and stevia. The mango makes it really creamy and pairs very well with the strawberries.
Believe it or not, I actually love celery.
I often crave it raw, and today was one of those days! Food for thought (literally), celery helps with sleep! I used to eat it at night as a pre-bedtime snack to aid my rest.
I had some leftover spaghetti squash and pizza sauce in the fridge, so I combined the two and added some sautéed onion and mushrooms, and topped it all with plenty of yogurt cheese and fresh parsley. It made for a delicious lunch casserole for me and the girls!
There was just a wee bit of Skinny Eggnog leftover, so I polished it off before heading to the gym.
Maybe not the best idea, but it wasn't my worst either! One time, in desperate need of a caffeine high, I downed half a bar of dark chocolate, and all I ended up with was a lousy workout and a sugar 'low'. 🙁
We dined on a beef and broccoli stir-fry I've been perfecting...
...I love ground beef, but I'm not the biggest fan of steak pieces, so I may change this to chicken next time. Served over jasmine brown rice (one of my favorite foods!), this really hit the spot!
For dessert, I munched on a few pieces of my Double Layer Peppermint Bark.
Something about having mint and/or chocolate after a meal is just sheer perfection!
What's the best thing you've eaten this week?
