Happy Friday, my fellow foodies! It’s been a while since I stopped doing “What I Ate Wednesday” posts and I have to admit that I kind of miss showing you my everyday food. How and what I eat is always changing so I thought some people might enjoy me sharing. These days, I’m still all about EATING MORE FRUIT!
I’ve been slightly brainwashed by the raw foodists on the internet and have really made it a focus to eat as many plant-based carbohydrates (mostly fruit) as I can everyday for improved health. So far the higher carb lifestyle is working great for me! I’ve noticed improved digestion and a leaner physique (which I hope is also due to the fact that I’ve been exercising on the Bikini Series). I have given up my oatmeal for now (gasp!) and turned to 100% fruit breakfasts. I usually alternate between smoothies or a fruit platter/salad. This was my breakfast yesterday! Four mangoes and about 2/3 c. of local blueberries.
My goal is to eat only raw foods until 4pm, which means preferably I eat a big salad or another fruit meal for lunch. But on days that I don’t have enough produce to do that, I just find another good plant-based option.
For this lunch I decided to do a stir-fry of eggplant, mushrooms, and Vidalia onions topped with homemade yum yum sauce and served over a big bed of rice. I absolutely love eating stir-fry with yum yum sauce the way I would at a hibachi or other japanese restaurant, so I started making it myself at home. It’s pretty fatty so I use it sparingly and savor every bite. So delicious!
Dinner was a very simple one. I roasted a bunch of sweet potatoes in the oven and sauteed a bunch of broccoli rabe. I also put some chicken on the grill for Jason to have with his veggies. Topped my sweet potatoes with some coconut sugar and cinnamon. Fast and easy dinner!
Let me know if you guys like seeing these kinds of posts! I don’t know if anybody else missed them besides me, but I’d be happy to bring them back if people like them. I’m also toying with the idea of doing posts like this in video form…hmmmm…..we shall see.
Have a great weekend! Eat lots of good stuff!
