I’m feeling fabulous waves of energy today! I came home from a busy work day and looked around my kitchen at all scrumptious dinner options. I substituted today’s dinner salad for lunch since I haven’t had luck finding organic cauliflower anywhere local so had many options for a substitute dinner.
Everything sounded good – both sweet and savory. I settled for the quickie half an avocado with a sprinkle of sea salt and cumin and later I used up leftover coconut water and made the carob silk smoothie from week 1 – yummm. My new favorite green smoothie has become: OJ, 1 banana, frozen peaches, collard greens, & one chunk of ginger – so good!
I had one day last week when I significantly fell off the wagon – I had been called upon to make cookies for my son’s gathering that night. As far as recipes go this was a pretty healthy cookie batch – nothing refined but definitely cooked and off my menu.
But those cookie morsels kept breaking into perfect bite size pieces and they were warm and it was cold out and I indulged. And then a funny thing happened. Cookie morsels became my best teacher of the day. I drank my dinner juice not too long after and what had been tasting oh so scrumptious for the past couple weeks all of the sudden wasn’t as tasty and I realized the cookie had messed with my palette. Fresh fuits and veggies have less flavor when combined with cooked food. Wow!
