I’ve been enjoying My Favorite Smoothie Bowl just about every morning! I love the energy it gives me and all the good fats from the walnuts, hemp seeds, and avocado that it provides, especially if my husband and I go to the gym in the morning.
My favorite way to top it is with a handful each of goji berries and cacao nibs.
Though my smoothie bowl is quite filling, there are times when I need a little something to hold me over until lunch, and that usually involves eggs!
A fried egg over easy atop a piece of Ezekiel toast smothered in coconut oil does the trick!
Lately for lunch, I have been looking to use up random ingredients in my fridge, which was the case this particular day.
I had about five large leaves of chard, a few large Portobello mushrooms, and some Homemade Pizza Sauce hanging out, so I made the mushrooms into pizza, topping them with the sauce and a sprinkle of part-skim mozzarella (so good, by the way!). Though I consider myself a pizza connoisseur of sorts, this was my first attempt at making a mushroom into my beloved meal, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The chard I made simply with garlic, red pepper flakes, and apple cider vinegar, all of which complimented the dark green wonderfully!
To get some greens in me, I made a small-ish salad this afternoon.
Packed with green leaf lettuce, arugula, red cabbage, grated carrot, raw pumpkin seeds, plenty of raisins, and a light apple cider vinegar dressing, this kept me full until dinner.
More fridge scrapings made my dinner….
While my husband and daughters ended up having chicken in some variation this night, I threw together an individual-sized eggplant parmesan for myself, using a small eggplant, more leftover pizza sauce, part-skim mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, and fresh basil.
This turned out so good, and I’m thinking of posting it here sometime. It just made a great, healthy meal for myself that wasn’t too complicated to put together.
Ever since I read that dates are beneficial for labor, I’ve been enjoying them immensely (more than usual)!
I love to stuff them with a bit of peanut butter, top them with a sprinkle of cinnamon, and freeze them for about an hour to get a delicious, raw-caramel-Snickers-kind-of-thing. 🙂
