What I Ate Wednesday 8-5-15

There are so many reasons why I love pressed juices.  It’s light and refreshing and gives me a LARGE serving of vegetables.  It IS true that there is no fiber in these juices, and some people debate about them.  I’ve seen benefits, though, for myself, and I tend to use THAT as the judge. I just find a good balance between juice and smoothies (which DO contain the fiber).

Green juice leaves me feeling light in the morning, and since there is no fiber, it’s like liquid energy in my bloodstream!  It’s great for busy people like me 🙂

The previous night, I ate this delicious Kale Salad using an awesome spicy almond butter dressing from one of my favorite sites, Detoxinista.

In this picture you see hemp hearts, sesame seeds, carrots, avocado, and mandarin oranges.

The next day for lunch, I used the leftover dressing and recreated the salad with green leaf lettuce.  I ate this with a side of fruit!

When I got home from work, I snacked on a banana and almond butter 🙂

For dinner, I’ve been loving quinoa bowls!  This one is quinoa, sautéed kale, roasted sweet potato and this “cheese sauce.”  I love these bowls because they satisfy my sweet/salty obsession!

Quinoa Bowl


Quinoa bowls are quick and easy because quinoa only takes 15 minutes to cook….and especially if you roast a few sweet potatoes at the beginning of the week, it makes it super fast!

Happy Hump day y’all—look for a blessing today!
