first off, i want to say thank you for all the lovely comments yesterday!!! the support was so warming and made those jitters of putting my heart on the table that much more safe!
back to regular programming! i have still been eating a simple diet. generally juicing in the morning and very simple small meals like a salad or quinoa with some yummy veggies. still doing a very limited amount of cheese, meat, sugar, and flour. however, when the time calls, like a night out with friends, i allow myself to indulge. i am feeling pretty good about all of it and am more determined to feel the best i can more than ever! ( however i do allow myself to completely indulge this weekend at unique LA with all those lovely food vendors…and considering i will be there all day for two days!)
occasionally, i have been making smoothies like this! they fill me up and i actually have it for lunch sometimes. i still might be intaking too much sugar, buuuuut, it ain’t white sugar!
what you need:
an avacado (1/2 or a whole)
1tbsp cacao powder
1/2 cup of almond milk (or another kind of milk)
dash of honey (if you like…or let the banana sweeten it)
1/2 tbsp of coconut oil
dash of vanilla
dash of salt
combine all the ingredients in a blender. serve it chilled or frozen!
the first time i made this i did so without the banana. either way, it was good and creamy!
oh,and mint! i forgot to add mint to the recipe! fresh mint makes this super divine!!!
here are two other hearty, yummy smoothies that are super filling!
