Day 1 Raw Vegan
So many exciting things coming up and, in a way, I'm leaving my current life behind. I want to meet new people, have new experiences, help new clients and continue my journey towards a healthy relationship with food.
2 stalks of celery
Fresh juice from 2 lemons
A handful of kale
12 oz of coconut water
Blend everything and enjoy. My Ninja blender is the strongest blender I've ever owned but it does not do well with kale. I always seem to have little pieces of kale in my smoothie. I was going to juice all of the above but I didn't feel like dealing with the pulp.
Lunch was overnight oats. Not raw but I needed to finish up my oat milk.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
1 1/2 cups of oat milk
1 cup of oats
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
2 tbsp. of peanut butter
Combine the oats, milk and protein powder and stir well. Add the peanut butter and slice the banana on top of the peanut butter and then cover. Refrigerate over night. You can evenly distribute the peanut butter by mixing it into the oats or you can layer the peanut butter, oats and milk. This was such a delicious lunch, mostly because of the chocolate and peanut butter :)
I made nana ice cream after the smoothie but I was full so I didn't finish it. I'll save it for breakfast tomorrow.
Beet Nana Ice Cream
3 frozen bananas
2 cooked beets
1 big organic strawberry
Put the bananas and beets in the blender and blend well. Pour into a bowl and top with a strawberry.
I looked online for an organic co op in NYC and I found one! I can't wait to stock my fridge in the city with my favorite foods.
