Planning today’s meals was an important step in this cleaning process. I knew I wanted to keep eating the raw/vegan nutritious foods I’ve been consuming but also knew I needed to make some slight changes. Like adding in protein. Because although I pride myself on my blonde moments, this last week has been ridiculous. Protein = brain power.  Lets kick that up a notch. I also knew that there is a part of me that would want to go nuts: burgers, fries, ice cream, pasta, nutella, cookies, cake, etc etc etc. That piece of my brain is still in training, because although they feel like physical cravings, they are definitely 95% mental cravings and habits. Habits which I am determined to break.

So last night I made a list of the foods I wanted to keep eating today, and the foods I knew I needed to add in.  Exhibit A: my breakfast:

Hard boiled eggs with a dash of cumin, so good!

With a side of Raspberry Chia Synergy!

I ate/drank these around 8:15 this morning, and wasn’t hungry until 12. That my friend, is the power of protein. And chia. 🙂

Snack consisted of a beautiful organic white peach and 2 vegan/raw macaroons from Que SeRaw SeRaw. ( I made a pit stop here after the dentist to grab some goodies for today and tomorrow… not sure if what I got is going to last until tomorrow)

On another side note- the Fudgie macaroon was the most decadent chocolate dessert I’ve ever had. No joke. I will learn to make it. Otherwise you may notice a back order for macaroons at Que SeRaw SeRaw. Just sayin.

Lunch: Caper Kelp Pasta (organic sun dried tomatoes, lemon, olive oil, garlic, red onion, celery, zucchini, red bell pepper, capers, salt, sea kelp noodles). Like a lighter pasta puttanesca. So good.

I have some other great snacks like corn tortilla crisps, mock tuna pate, mock tuna nori rolls, and a chocolate mouse torte. All vegan, all raw. Plus a home made watermelon and mint cooler that I’m sorta obsessed with.

Tonight I have a dinner date with my love and some sushi. Sashimi, vegetarian nori rolls, and a salad. That’s the plan.

I have a hardcore workout planned for tonight as well. I’m super curious to see how my energy level and stamina will be. This last week I’ve felt relatively weak and unable to push my self as hard as I’m use to. I have a good feeling I’m going to feel more normal and energized and will be once again able to accept the challenge of getting my ass handed to me.

I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
