What I am eating…

Last year my wife and I bough a Vitamix, and began making morning green smoothies as our Mondy through Friday breakfast. They are made with Power greens bought from trader joes or something similar from costco along with a banana, and orange, lemon, and an inch of ginger.

I still make the smoothie except I have learned that some of these foods might be spiking my sugar from the moment I suck it down. Now I make the smoothie with a frozen or fresh mix of berries, they are said to have a lower sugar profile, power greens, 1/4 cucumber, and an inch of ginger.

For lunch I make a salad of mixed greens, celery, radishes, shredded carrots, broccoli, tomato, etc…maybe some days some cauliflower. I will sometimes add some protein, by that I mean a very small portion of cooked salmon, or tuna, maybe even a lil baked tofu.

I have been using a Vegan salad dressing that is sold from Whole Foods that has very little sugar, carbs, and junk ingredients that nobody knows what they are in there for.

Snacks, are small bit of roasted unsalted almonds or some mini carrots with a table spoon of dressing to dip them in.

Dinners so far have been more salads, or roasted vegetables like cauliflower with mushrooms. I have a vegetable spiralizer that can turn things like zucchini into pastaesque noodles which are great with some baked mushrooms (when you chop them up into little pieces and bake them, they are kinda like meat so I add them to my pasta sauce I make from a can of roasted tomatoes with fresh garlic and onions.

Basically just trying to eat extremely clean, and smaller portions, and trying to not just eat a salad all the time too. Variety is the… yeah yeah.
