WIAW #3

Let's just get into it, shall we?



Brekky: half a honeydew melon, filled with one banana mushed up with a fork, topped with strawbs, bloobs, coconut and raisins, aka BEST BREKKY EVER.


Lunchie: four nanners frozen and blended with french vanilla stevia, strawberries, cinnamon and nutmeg for some banana soft serve, topped with coconut and raisins (see a pattern? ;) )


Dinnie: half a head of red leaf lettuce, some carrots, some celery, TONS of ginger and an apple. It didn't need the apple. It was freakishly sweet. I'm so used to having dandelion greens (not a beginner green) in my green juice that it threw me off quite a bit.


Sandwich on sprouted bread with sun-dried tomato basil pinto bean hummus, avocado, sliced tomatoes and cracked pepper, grilled with coconut oil in my panini pan. Best sandwich ever, but it would have been even better if I didn't run out of sprouts the day before.


Some detox tea with burdock root and some other stuff, though I wish it was Kukicha tea, some grapes, some raisins, a nectarine and some peas.


Snackie: Popcorn with the most amaaazing sauce ever. I melted some coconut oil and mixed it with cinnamon, brown rice syrup and barley malt, and then mixed in some raisins and poured it on top. Ooooh my peas.


Yup, more fruit. I luuurve strawberries.


As you can probably tell, I had some fun making my pictures pretty. Instagram is my new bff ;)

Do you grow your own sprouts? I do! Have you ever had banana soft-serve (or some other kind of ice cream) for a meal? Do you eat weird food for WIAW too? Seriously, I get cravings for bread on Tuesdays, and Tuesdays only. I don't think my WIAW posts are really representative of what I eat most of the time. Oh well :)

    Happy WIAW to you too :D The popcorn sauce was so so amazing. There was a little bit left at the bottom of the bowl, and I may or may not have licked it up...

    Thanks, Paulina :) I love them too. They're quite a bit better IMO than the webcam ones I was taking before. Smoothies are the bomb, especially in a bowl.

  6. I really love your breakfast. There´s nothing better than a fresh melon for breakfast (well, maybe except for oatmeal, of course:).
    I do grow own sprouts, but when I am short on time, I just buy some already sprouted chickpeas or lenitls...
    I love banana soft-serve, I usually have it as a snack or as a part of my dinner. But I think it would be perfecst for any meal:)

    I'm starting to think that melons are a better breakfast than oatmeal. AH I know, I sound crazy, but I feel like I'm being kinder to my body by giving it an enzyme and water rich brekky than oats.
    I used to buy the ones in a package but once I realized how easy it is to sprout stuff I couldn't justify spending that much on something that isn't going to last me that long. I'd rather spend my money on kombucha :D (even though I know I could make my own of that too, but I don't drink it often enough to go through the process of getting a scoby, and I use other products like miso to get my probiotics)
    It's totally perfect for any meal. Definition of simple, clean eating right there, especially if you use just bananas.

  8. Oh my that strawberry nana softserve looks *heavenly*. I used to eat it all. the. time. But now if I eat too much fruit, I get major digestive issues :( Or rather I finally figured out that's where those issues came from, they didn't just pop out of nowhere :). I have to limit my overall sugar AND fruit consumption nowadays-- sad :(

  9. I like sprouts but what with the recent problems with ecoli, I'll be staying away from them or growing my own!

  10. I love the look in all these pictures, gorgeous! And your food all looks so fresh and tasty. I don't grow my own sprouts--considered it, but got a little overwhelmed by directions. Might get around to it one of these days, seems like a great idea. And my WIAW are usually WAAAY healthier than the average day :D

  11. Oh, today I ate one whole watermelon, so I don´t judge you :) I think I enjoyed it a lot more than the oatmeal I had for breakfast :)
    I used to make my own kombucha - but it was really time spending and as you - I didn´t drink it that often. And the process of making it kind of freaked me out :))

    Do you pay attention to food combining? Apparently it's best to eat fruit by itself on an empty stomach. It works for some people but doesn't affect others. It couldn't hurt to try, though :)

    Ah I know, but it's good to remember that it's not the sprouts (or spinach or any other veggie) that had the e. coli to begin with, it was either contaminated water or contaminated faeces from animals that were probably factory farmed. It's so easy and so much cheaper to grow your own though that even if there wasn't an e. coli scare I would still sprout my own :)

    Thanks, Allie :)
    Hah it's not hard. Just soak your sprouting seeds or beans in water (I usually do it overnight but they might only need two hours. You can rinse them before you soak them too but it's not really necessary), and then drain and rinse them a few times until the water runs clean. Prop them up at an angle, using either a large bowl or a dish rack, using a sprouting jar OR if you don't want to buy a sprouting jar because you're cheap like me, use a mesh sieve instead. Rinse and drain them two to three times a day and you'll have sprouts in a few days.

    Thanks :D I had dandelion greens this morning in my green juice, along with some carrot tops, kohlrabi greens, half a cuke, daikon, beets, ginger and half a lemon. It was great.

  17. Sounds like a good green juice. I've been doing green smoothies for breakfast almost every morning for 2 years, but I've yet to get into juicing. I think it's almost time, though!

    I prefer green juices to green smoothies. I love the fibre in green smoothies but I always eat like crap (not really horrible, life-threatening crap, but I don't eat very many veggies and I end up wanting bread and other nutritionally devoid food) for the rest of the day.

  19. That's good that you're self-aware enough to be able to know what does and doesn't work for you and avoid problem areas. I like that "eating like crap" to you is eating bread :)

    Ha thanks :) It's funny when people say they only eat healthy, whole-grain bread, because when you compare the nutrient density, it's really close to white bread. Of course it's a bit less processed than the white stuff but it's still baked for a long time and hardly has any water in it. Plus it's super addictive. You can totally stay high on bread for days. Dangerous stuff.
