High Raw, All Vegan Food Intake - Pregnancy Food Journal - Wednesday
Posted Dec 30 2009 5:47pm
I keep getting emails and comments from people interested in my food intake, so here is today's. It's another day of delicious food.
Organic Hemp Protein Smoothie made from: 1.5 cups water, 1/4 cup Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein Powder, 2 Tablespoons Manitoba Harvest Hemp Seeds, 2 bananas (I recently bought a 25 pound bucket of seeds from Manitoba Harvest! I transferred them to glass mason jars and they're all stored in my freezer now. I'm going to enjoy giving a couple of jars away to friends and family as gifts; I'll even tie a little bow on it. That's the gift of health!)
I was cold and still a little hungry after my protein shake so I had the following nourishing, warming foods. Let me tell you, they warmed my body right up, literally in minutes.
~1 cup organic miso soup from South River Miso (dandelion leek flavor - one of my faves!)
~1/2 cup organic kim-chi by Rejuvenative (they were so kind to send me samples - yum!).
Second Little Snack
While shopping at Whole Foods, I bought GoRaw's little chocolate cookies and opened the bag in the store, eating 3 of them.
~Large organic Delicious Apple (this was so delicious and juicy)
~Large organic salad with romaine, cucumber ($2.50 each now at Whole Foods - yikes!), tomato, and another batch of Cayenne Tahini Recipe I talked about in yesterday's post. This batch I made last night around midnight and added a big handful of organic cilantro that I had in the fridge. When I gave my husband his salad he said, "Honey, thanks so much for making me so healthy with all the food you make." I replied, "Of course! I want us to be centenarians together!"
We went to Starbucks to read (these are the books I'm reading on my Kindle2 right now: Playful Parenting and Unconditional Parenting). On a side note... I absolutely love my Kindle and it's one of the best things we ever bought. While we were there I had some organic herbal tea (Mountain Rose Herbs) that I brought with me in a Starbucks thermos and glass mug.
~Huge Salad (same as above)
~Rejuvenative's Kim-Chi (same as above)
~Vegan Pizza! ZPizza makes the yummiest vegan pizza and they use Daiya cheese. If you haven't had Daiya cheese, and if you have some cooked vegan food from time to time, then you're truly missing out. This is reputed as the cheese to keep vegans as vegans (for those of you feeling like life isn't the same without cheese). It's life changing for many. It's non-dairy, non-soy, non-gluten, non-rice, non-corn, non-nut, non-preservatives. For the most part, only a handful of restaurants around the country have access to it (ZPizza, Blossom, etc), but it's supposed to be available for retail stores like Whole Foods in 2010. Furthermore, I did hear a rumor that it's actually available in some Whole Foods now, but that they have been running out of it because it's so popular. Anyway, back to ZPizza... they offer a whole wheat crust made with organic wheat and they also have organic vegan sauce. I top my cooked pizza with fresh veggie toppings to get some extra Raw into the meal.
