This is my first photo food journal since my big diet change from earlier this summer, but I thought you might want to see more of what I’m eating these days (you can also see a full list of my previous photo journals here).
Note: if you’re suffering or in recovery from an eating disorder, feel free to skip this post or, at the very least, consider it as entertainment and not as a guide for the amount of food to eat in a day. Everyone is different and you should consult your health professional for dietary advice.
While I went through a long period of drinking green smoothies every morning, that got a little old and so now I’m alternating between those and days where I start with a green juice followed by cereal.
The juice fixin’s (candy cane beets, cukes, lemon, carrots, and parsley):
Served in an adorable vintage-style green Mason jar I found at the hardware store:
My breakfast cereal included unsweetened coconut yogurt, homemade almond milk, blueberries, buckwheat groats, cinnamon, cacao nibs, molasses, and Sacha Inchi protein powder (a great plant-based source of omega-3’s!) from Vitacost’s Earthblends line (use this link for $10 off your first order):
The Sacha Inchi powder tastes like peanut butter to me which is never a bad thing:
Unpictured to go along with the cereal was a mug of my Chocolate Mint Tea.
Lunchtime included a salad with wild salmon that I ordered online from Vital Choice (I just became an affiliate, too, because I really love what they do). I made the salmon pretty much exactly the way I made my Maple Baked Tofu, btw:
Dessert was some dark chocolate, I looove this brand I get at Trader Joe’s (note to self: need to do an updated Top 10 Favorite TJ Items):
Dinnertime was a new fave: ground bison cooked with chopped kale and mushrooms and served with a slice of cheddar cheese and sauerkraut (weird combo, I know, but it hit the spot):
And, because I was still hungry, I cooked a plantain for the first time in my life. I found it at the market near the regular bananas, but you can see the difference between them here (plantain is on the bottom). You want to let it get really black before using it for the most sweetness:
The flesh is slightly pink:
I cooked it with a teensy bit of coconut oil:
And served it with some almond milk; pretty tasty but not sweet enough for me:
My day ended with a gorgeous sunset off my new balcony:
