I have made a lot of poor food choices recently. I could easily have done the same again today because I had another stressful day yesterday and woke up very tired with a busy day ahead of me. But no – I knew plants would make me feel better so I ate lots of them and guess what ? I do 😃.
Food of the Gods! Frozen bananas and fresh apricots, blended together into a thick sweet smoothie. It was perfect.
I made another smoothie for lunch with bananas, frozen berries, plums and lettuce. Yes, lettuce. I wanted to add some greens and I have lots of lettuce in the garden so I used some up. Not bad at all and it felt like it was full of wonderful nutrients, which of course it was.
I snacked on 3 apples during the afternoon. Dinner was veggietastic.
Transformed in to a stir fry with Thai flavours. I added some mung bean noodles which were a strange texture when uncooked but lovely when boiled and then stir fried.
Served with fresh coriander, soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce. Yummy. I feel very much better already. The power of plant food.
I love it! Tis the season! 🙂
Have you tried a frozen Banana smoothie yet Laura? Mixed with mango and/ or apricot is my favourite.
I have been doing them for 11 years now Zoe. I like them with organic strawberries or in my Green Monster smoothie, which is my favourite for energizing in the morning or a pick me up in the afternoon as a snack.
Oh, my mistake. I thought you commented that you wanted to try them. You are so ahead of the trend 😃
That is cute about being ahead of the trent. That is only because I had 40 lbs/2 stones to lose in 2004! I still had another 10 to go when I met your family.
I have been at my goal weight since 2013, a year after I started doing my MAD Mile 4 Health walk everyday. Between getting rid of processed foods 97% of the time, giving up pop and juice to replace it with water and walking each day, along with strength and stretching exercises both my Sister and I have released weight we gained during menopause and we both feel so much better.
My Sister just started doing this last December when she retired. She is totally amazed at the weight that is gone from walking at least a mile a day and always trying to reach 10,000 steps and how much better she feels eating healthy and not carrying around the extra weight.
