High Raw Food Intake - Pregnancy Food Journal - Sunday
Posted Mar 21 2010 2:10pm
My husband and I are enjoying a day of High Raw food day. All organic. And, that's me having fun in my third trimester - YAY! I am so happy being pregnant! (OH! On Monday I'm having another AWESOME GIVEAWAY so come on back tomorrow!!!)
1 large banana - I had mine fresh peeled, and my husband had his warmed in the dehydrator as semi-dehydrated slices
Teeccino with Raw Vegan Nutmilk - I am writing a post on getting over caffeine addictions this week, so stay tuned for that. For my Raw Vegan Nutmilk, I made a 1-Minute Nut Milk with 1 hefty tablespoon of Rejuvenative's Pecan Pie Butter (so extra yummy!) blended with a cup of water. It's aromatic, a hint of spice, a touch of sweet, and super delish!
1/2 cup fresh pineapple - I had mine fresh, and my husband had his warmed in the dehydrator as semi-dehydrated. He loves it like that.
Hearty Buckwheat Biscuits - This recipe will be in my next email newsletter, which goes out on Tuesday. I had one of these today and my husband had two. They're so good! I already need to make another batch!
Plant Blood - I made 2 quarts of organic green juice using my Hurom (love this juicer!). We each had about 2 cups and I'm saving the rest for later in the day. It had 1 bunch of celery, 1 bunch curly purple kale, 1 bunch cilantro, 2 large cucumbers, 2 large carrots, 1/2 inch knob of ginger, 1/2 pineapple, 1/2 cup water)
Huge Protein Salads - Giving my little monkey some extra protein now that we're in the third trimester. This salad has an awesome raw vegan dressing, cucumbers, red bell peppers, spinach, broccoli sprouts, raisins, and tofu.
Plant Blood - Leftover from earlier in the day.
Sauerkraut - This homemade kraut is sooooo good! I could eat a cup at a time. Yum! I'm enjoying this batch on top of another Hearty Buckwheat Biscuit. (Learn how I make my organic, unpasteurized sauerkraut here.)
Strawberries with Sweet Frosting Dip - The Sweet Frosting Dip recipe will be in my next book, due out in the next couple of months (hopefully before I give birth to my baby). Stay tuned!
Raw Vegan Truffles - My good friends, Dolly and Anthony (you might know him as Raw Model), are making Raw truffles that they sell (Blackbird Naturals is the name of the company) and they happen to live nearby! I bumped into them at the market over the weekend where they blessed me with FREE CHOCOLATE. And, um... about 2 hours later I went to Oakville Market where they sell them and I bought a package. I'm having them for dessert tonight!
Protein Shake - I'm undecided, but if I find myself hungry or needing more protein later tonight, I'll shake up another protein shake. Perhaps I'll have another banana, too!
