What I Ate Wednesday 6/1/16

In an effort to show you all more of what I eat as a plant-strong, active adult, I'm starting a new series here on the blog - "What I Ate Wednesday."  Every other Wednesday (or so) I'll snap a picture of everything I eat and post the pictures plus descriptions here on the blog.  I'll share helpful information on what I'm eating and why.

PLEASE, please, please do not think that your food choices should directly mirror mine - we are all different and what works for my body may not work for your body, and vice versa.  I'm still figuring out what works best for me and guess what?  It's changing all the time. I'm simply sharing my choices with the hopes to give you more ideas when it comes to healthy foods and meals.

Here's what I ate this Wednesday:

Upon waking: water + lemon juice, coffee blended with 1 tsp ghee, cinnamon + a few drops of liquid stevia. Quick tip: Ghee is clarified butter which means it is butter with the milk proteins removed. Many people who cannot tolerate dairy can handle ghee.

Breakfast: Steamed kale, sweet potatoes, sauerkraut + 2 hard boiled eggs. Superhuman breakfast, to go!

Snack: Strawberries + small handful of raw almonds, iced black tea with lemon from Hu Kitchen

Lunch: Some sugar snap peas (not pictured) and this gorgeous salad: mixed greens, broiled wild caught steel-head salmon, garlic sauerkraut + tangy lemon dill yogurt dressing. This salad was super flavorful, and SO easy! Would you guys want the super simple recipe for this salmon and dressing? Let me know in the comments below!

Snack: Smoothie with protein powder, water, frozen cherries + vanilla extract. Not pictured.

Dinner: Zucchini noodles, marinated tofu + quinoa. Tofu - I'm still on the fence with you. I had a craving for it last week, but I don't think my gut loves it (soy can be hard to digest). Peppermint tea to curb my sweet tooth after dinner (yes, I have a sweet tooth, and yes this actually works to quell it!)


Like I mentioned, I'm always looking to find what foods work best for me through experimentation, and trial and error. Hey, I never thought I would eat dairy again and here I am, trying it out (sheep's milk yogurt and ghee) and doing just fine!
