Welcome to this week’s WIAW post! Thanks as always to Peas and Crayons 🙂
As much as I adore Thanksgiving, I have to say that I love the leftovers almost as much! Turkey sandwiches, turkey soups, and all sorts of leftover goodies made regular appearances this weekend, but now I’m glad to be back on track with the clean and the green. Yesterday, I made this Carrot Lemon Apple Green Juice in my VitaMix using a cloth to strain out the pulp. Before straining, it had a horrible consistency, was the ugliest shade of green-brown, and smelled like spinach. Needless to say, I was scared to take a sip after straining out the pulp! However, it turned out amazing! The lemon is so refreshing and the apple gives it sweetness that makes it taste exactly like Naked’s Green Machine:)
Later on, this happened:
Peach Banana Berry Green Smoothie. Topped with raw granola. Enough said! Recipe coming soon:)
Lunch- Sunshine burger on a wheat English muffin with avocado, hummus, and veggies. I never get tired of this combo! It keeps me full for hours, too!
I snacked on almond butter and an orange before dinner…
Whole Food’s! Beans, lentils, hummus, kale, tomato, beet, and shredded kabocha- amazing! It’s ridiculous how much I love that store!
Dessert was the last of this decadent (Almost raw) pumpkin “casserole” with a walnut date crust. I brought this to Thanksgiving and everyone who tried it was a fan:)
1.) TJ’s Organic 3-grain Tempeh: I’ve waited for Trader Joe’s to get tempeh for ages! Now, they have it, and it’s organic, and it’s only $1.99! Score!
2.) Whole Food’s Grain English Muffins: As much as I love Ezekiel, these are a million times better. Light, fluffy, heavenly. I love that they list the nutrition for both halves of the muffin, too! Because really, who eats half a muffin?:)
3.) Blueberry Coconut Rise Bar: Wow, this is better than a brownie! It’s so rich that it’s hard to believe it’s not sugar-filled! Definitely makes an amazing dessert.
Can’t wait to read all of your posts! Have a fantastic WIAW!:)
