Last night I mixed together:
1/3 cup oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp carob powder
1 tbsp protein powder
1 cup almond milk
1 banana, chopped
This morning, hey presto! Carob overnight oats. Yummy.
I managed to take lunch to work again too. Third day in a row I have managed to take in 2 pots of goodness.
According to my macrobiotic book, I need to balance yin with yang and this is a perfect example. The upward growing and yin celery and the downward growing and yang carrot. Yes, that really is a carrot and it’s purple. There is a lot to this macrobiotic lark!
I popped the carrot and celery in to my lunch pot with brown rice.
I added fennel, cucumber and sugar snap peas.
Popped my 2 little pots of goodness in to their string bag and we were ready for work.
I was particularly tired today so I treated myself to a Momouth coffee on my way in to the office – heavenly. Not at all macrobiotic but needed.
After another long day at work I was home late and made a quick and easy smoothie; mango, almond milk, ice cubes, 1 small avocado, 1 leftover pistachio and cranberry truffle and 1 tbsp molasses. YUMMY. It was thick and full of complimenting flavours, smooth and creamy. How can something so tasty be so healthy?
I am really enjoying this new way of eating and it has helped me become focused on healthy eating again. Beginning to feel better 🙂
You’ve got to try the Millet porridge. You boil up your millet (toasting it dry first until it smells nutty – makes a difference I promise you). When it’s ready you just add a splash of soya milk and a small teaspoon of honey and whatever berries you’ve got lying around and it’s amazing. I really prefer it to oat porridge. Go Millet Go.
I have to say, those purple carrots tasted absolutely lovely – if I were blindfolded I would say it tasted like a beetrooty carrot, or a carroty beetroot. Really earthy and more flavorsome than a standard orange carrot – my fridge is so dull compared to yours Zoe! xxx
I do like colourful veggies :-). The purple carrots actually tasted better cooked than raw. They were quite tough raw – all good fibre though!
