|Pre-workout snack: Rice Chex Cereal with Sugar-Free|
Vanilla Coconut Milk
|Post-workout snack: "Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothie"...|
I seriously have this smoothie every single day!
|Mid-morning snack: 2 gluten-free, vegan pancakes (recipe here),|
with maple agave nectar.
|"Is it lunch yet? Snack:"...a banana|
|Lunch: "Black Bean and Potato Stuffing" (recipe here)|
on two corn tortilla shells with Cheddar Daiya cheese,
corn tortilla chips, and salsa.
|Dessert: "Best Chocolate Pudding" (recipe here) |
No joke...this is the best gf, vegan pudding I've tasted!
I tried other vegan puddings with tofu, and they weren't
for me. This one uses avocados and is delicious!
|Mid-Afternoon snack: 1 organic Honeycrisp apple |
(I always get my apples organic, since they are now
at the top of the Dirty Dozen List"...meaning they
contain the most pesticides! Yuck!)
|2nd Mid-afternoon snack: Blueberry Muffin Larabar|
|"Just got home and playing with Avery Snack": |
Chocolate Spinach Smoothie...again. Basically the exact same
smoothie I had for breakfast, except I traded out the
cacao powder, chia seeds, and hemp seeds for
Chocolate Sunwarrior Rice Protein Powder and some
Now around 6 months, I started doing baby sign language with Avery and although she often looks at me like I'm crazy, lately I swear she's been trying to sign "more" back to me! This usually occurs when I'm eating a smoothie like the one I had today. I'll give her a little taste of it and then she will start slapping her hands on her legs or her highchair and then sometimes her hands will come together (as in the sign for "more"). Call it coincidence, but I think it's safe to say this girl likes green smoothies. I suppose the fact they all resemble chocolate ice cream helps a little bit. ( :
|"More smoothie please Mama!"|
|Dinner: Gluten-free pasta, with "Sneaky Sauce" (a jar|
of spaghetti sauce, 1 cup cooked green lentils, 2-3 cups
fresh spinach...all blended in VitaMix. It may not look
that pretty, but it tastes great and is great for you!)
|Dessert: 2 Mini Gluten-free, vegan pumpkin doughnuts. |
(recipe here). My photo (and "beginner doughnut formation skills" do
not do these mini-doughnuts justice...they are so good.
