Day 2 Raw Vegan

It's Day 2 and I'm feeling great!  There is nothing better than strawberries.  I've been craving them so much lately and yesterday's appetizer was so good that I was thinking about berries all day.  I love me some blackberries too.  The organic farm near me in PA will be selling strawberries later this month and I can't wait to gobble them up!  The lady who runs the farm was telling me the harsh winter killed a lot of their produce so they had to start all over again with some veggies.  I wish I could grow berries all year round.

For breakfast, I had the beet nana smoothie that I made last night.  I didn't drink the whole thing because I wasn't in the mood. For lunch I had chocolate peanut butter banana overnight oats.

Chocolate Peanut Banana Overnight Oats:

1/2 cup of oats
1 cup of almond milk
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
2 tbsp. of peanut butter
1 banana

Combine the oats, milk and protein powder and stir.  Add the peanut butter and banana and refrigerate.  It was so yum.  For the rest of the week, I'm taking a break from the oats and making chia seed pudding.  I'm doing 90% raw in case you're wondering what is up with the protein powder and oats.  I love whole grains and I just ordered chocolate and vanilla protein powder, which adds sweetness and protein to my smoothies.

I brought an apple and banana to work for snacks.  Dinner was a huge, I mean huge salad!!  I'm still full and slightly bloated.  I went through my fridge and just started cutting everything up, it was pretty exciting to see the greens piling up.  I used fresh lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and turmeric for the dressing.  I topped the salad with nutritional yeast.  My vitamin B12 is low so I've been craving nooch lately.  It's so yummy and nutty and adds wonderful flavor to meals.  Go out and buy some nutritional yeast!  You can top your pasta with it; it kind of replaces parm cheese.

My awesome salad: kale, romaine lettuce, garlic chives, shallots, yellow sweet pepper, sundried tomatoes, dandelion, watercress and an avocado.  I have no amounts, I just cut everything up and went nuts.  Dressing: 2 tbsp. of olive oil, fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon, turmeric and sea salt.  Shake it up and pour over the salad and toss away.  Sprinkle nooch on top.  It was so so awesome!

I had a few strawberries after my salad and I'm just still so full.  I'm going to bed full.  And all I had was a salad.  I tend to eat more when I eat raw.  Fill your belly so you feel satisfied.
