30 Days – day 29!!!!!

Home stretch!

image

Breakfast: banana, fruit, protein powder smoothie

Snacks: NOMS!

image

image

Lunch: salad

image

Dinner: avocado and meat (thrilling)

image

Dessert: red pear

image

So! Tomorrow I plan on celebrating with WINE! I’ll probably write my closing thoughts on these 30 days while half in the can 😀

30 Days – day 28

I am so ready to be done with this. I fear a backlash of wine Tuesday night and ALL THE FOOD on Wednesday. *sigh*

Breakfast was a strawberry, banana and protein powder smoothie.

image

That’s a habit that’ll probably stick.

I tried to use up leftover salad for lunch but it was disgusting. I ended up eating some of the snackie ginger snap cookies.

Dinner was a nacho salad: lettuce, red bell pepper, avocado, “meat” and onions. I made dressing out of cucumber, cilantro and a very unripe avocado (therefore added no flavor or creaminess). Oh and nutritional yeast.

image

I may have a pear later – but I doubt it.

30 Days – day 26

The protein deficit is building – I can feel it.

Breakfast and dinner was a smoothie… everyone in the house is addicted to the Ninja 😀

image

Around 11a I was STARVING. My amazing husband came by my office with a treasure trove of raw snacks!

image

And I ate the hell out of it!!!

image

I started with these…

image

And then ate these. 😀

I felt like I was cheating but I wasn’t – although a binge of packaged products wasn’t exactly in the spirit of a raw vegan program. Oh well… I feel waaaay better.

30 Days – day 25

Yeah. Still bored.

image

Banana, mixed berry and chia smoothie

image

I took myself to lunch at Plant and got an arugula, pink grapefruit, avocado, shaved fennel and macadamia nut salad with vinaigrette. It was nice to have my second meal made by someone else.

image

It was Back to School night so I just had another smoothie for dinner – banana and blueberry.

Another day down. I feel the protein deficit building. Planning on sausage soon.

30 Days – day 24

Bored.

image

Blueberry, banana and chia pudding for breakfast

image

Zucchini, tomato, creamy spinach pesto and chili flakes for lunch. I was still hungry so I went to the cafe.

image

Salad and a peach.

I just got home from the barn and I am too bored of food to eat. I did have some grapes.

Considering just fasting these last few days… too bored to think about the same damn food again.

30 Days – day 23

I’d stab a hobo for a Tofurky sausage and french fries. And WINE.

Breakfast: blended mixed berries, banana and chia seeds with a side of grapes

image

Lunch: salad with spinach pesto

image

Dinner: bolognese with mushrooms

image

I am too far in to quit – and I’m too close to the end to give a flip.

30 Days – day 22

Breakfast didn’t turn out much prettier but it was still delicious. Banana, mango and chia pudding….

image

Lunch was grated cauliflower and cabbage salad with creamy pesto.

image

Dinner was zucchini pasta bolognese… mmmmmm

image

I even had a little dessert – mixed berry sorbet (frozen berries blended in the ninja) with pecans.

image

30 Days – day 21

Since it rained yesterday today was my busy busy day – taught a lesson and rode 3 horses.

Confession – I have NOT given up coffee. But I have cut down to 2-3 cups a day (from 8-12). Except today – I drank ALL THE COFFEES.  Bzzzzz!!!!

Breakfast was a banana, mangoes and chia seeds that overnighted in the fridge.

image

Tasted amazing – looks like poop. I hand stirred in the chia today so tomorrow it will look way better 😉

When I got home at 5p I made some food ahead.

A giant vat of salad: grated cauliflower, Napa cabbage, scallions, cilantro, and red bell pepper.

image

I also made some creamy spinach pesto (soaked cashews, crushed garlic, spinach, salt and pepper.)

image

I put some pesto on the salad and had some tacos with the “meat” I made last night.

image

So I’m a little better prepared going into next week!

30 Days – day 20

Day twenty?? How?!

Breakfast was another attempt at hiding my meh cheesecake experiment by drowning it in frozen fruit. Strawberries and mangoes today!

image

Lunch was zucchini pasta bolognese with mushrooms.

image

And here is a recipe – because it’s tasty…

* 1 package of Trader Joe’s sun dried tomatoes
* 1.5 cups walnuts
* 2 large Roma tomatoes
* crushed garlic, salt and pepper

Whir it up in a blender and voilà!

Dinner was similarly delicious and over the top rich and decadent – avocado soup.

image

Half a peeled cucumber, 2 small avocados, cilantro, scallions, salt and cumin – blend with water. Top with chopped red bell pepper and hot sauce. NOMS!

I also ate an obscene number of grapes today. We happened to get a bag of super crunchy ones 😀
