Eat’n Clean Saturday

Had some really fresh and organic foods yesterday that left me satisfied, leveled out the blood sugar so had energy all day and just felt great!

Mid day snack was Ezekiel bread topped with vegan mayonnaise and spinach, sliced tomato (from my garden!) and avocado.  Washed it down with a ice coffee with coconut milk and some stivia

For dinner, I took out my container of my vegan black bean burger and cooked in olive oil. Topped with mixed greens, hummus, and cucumber(from my garden too!) in between two pieces of toasted Ezekiel bread! Cold beer to wash that baby down!

Have a healthy and happy day!


Afternoon Pick-me-up 

Have coffee left over from the morning? (Part of me feels like this is a dumb question since most people use Keurigs nowadays) I guess I am still old school (or economical) since I still like to brew a pot. Here is a filling afternoon mocha latte to add to your coffee:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 or whole frozen banana for sweetness
  • 1/4 c raw non sweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 c almond or coconut milk
  • Teaspoon of vanilla extract

Whip up in a blender, enjoy!
