Food Diary

People always ask what we are eating. Here is a day in the life of our stomachs. We don’t expect you to do all this but if you do give one thing a try this week (for an entire week), we guarantee you will feel better…see below for our challenge to you!

6:30AM:
2 oz wheatgrass (Lance has no problem with WG. Personally, I think a shot of tequila is easier).

7:00AM: 16-20 oz  Smoothie: Organic (always) blueberries (antioxidants), strawberries, plain goat kefir (not sweetened!) (more digestable than cow dairy and phenomenal for gut health, maca powder, Green SuperFood, whey protein powder, flax seeds, hemps seeds and coconut oil…throw it all in the blender and have fun!

ALL DAY: green tea…huge antioxident

9AM: Oatmeal w/ organic blueberries, flax seeds, cinnamon (big anti-inflammatory! INFLAMMATION: the source of so many diseases), and plain goat milk kefir

TIP: (always freshly grind flax seeds…they oxidize quickly…never buy ground flax seeds and always store in fridge).

Mid morning snack: Mulberries, goji berries and nuts (walnuts, brazil (selenium), and almonds (great if you can soak over night first…easy peasy).

 

LUNCH: Mixed veg, red lentil coconut curry with sauteed spinach and cabbage and roasted cauliflower over brown rice (inspired by Julia Hellerman).

MID-DAY SNACK: VEGGIE JUICE! (YAY!): Kale, chard, broccoli stems, celery, cucumber, green apple, parsley or cilantro, lemon, ginger, turmeric (Also big anti-inflammatory). We find turmeric as a fresh root at Whole Foods so we juice it!

 

DINNER: Mung beans and brown rice with lots of Indian spices, sauteed shitake mushrooms & spinach w/ cilantro on top (great for digestion) + sauteed kale with gamazio.

LATE NIGHT SNACK: Gluten Free (GF) toast with coconut butter, Justin’s plain almond butter…the best nutbutta around! 🙂 and cinnamon on top!

Our challenge to you:
We are going to challenge you to do one thing. One simple thing for one week.

Pick a day to start on and then for 7 days make a green juice every day (either from a juicer or a vitamix or just go and get a juice at your local health food store if possible). Make with any combination of the above ingredients (you don’t need to go as crazy as we do…and some greens are easier to drink like cucumbers, celery and apple if you are new to this juicy juicing thing).

Green Juice gives you a direct shot of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein and oxygen. Also you could never get that many vegetables in your diet in a day. So voila!

Also if we mentioned any foods here that you are wondering what is that? Please ask! We will be happy to answer.
