Well fingers crossed that our bodies like avocados as much as our taste buds do.
So far we both feel okay from eating them again. All our skin conditions have remained the same ever since adding them back…so hopefully that means our bodies are okay with them. As we can’t wait to play around with more recipes using avocados.
Tone it up sandcastle and Itty bitty bikini ab routine was our workout yesterday.
Also did our 5 minute plankworkout as a warmup.
Felt great to use weights again after taking a few days off from using them.
First up was cutting the no sugar marshmallows that I made the night before, and of course I ate two along with my morning pills.
Next was a green smoothie!!!
Michelle and I were soooo excited to try this again in our diet. We have really missed our smoothies, we just love them!
We are trying it with just half a banana instead of a full banana that we did a few months ago to help cut down a little on the sugar (fructose). Yesterday’s smoothie was about 1 cup water, kale, parsley, 1 scoop perfect fit brown rice protein, half frozen banana and 1/4 cup frozen raspberries. Delicious. Just like I remember them being.
Hopefully this love affair will be able to continue. I know I won’t be able to have one every day, but hopefully I can make it work a few times a week. We shall see.
Next meal was a super yummy egg meal with a new recipe. I enjoyed 2 eggs with lettuce, cauliflower, and coconut oil.
We are trying to create a bread/english muffin protein snack. Almost there.
Later in the day I enjoyed a avocado pudding with a twist….added in gelatin. Michelle and I were curious of what the gelatin would do to the texture.
It was delicious. The gelatin made it really thick!!! Michelle and I love very rich and thick puddings, so this was perfect.
Dinner was a plate of mache lettuce, brussel sprouts, tuna, dulse flakes, nutritional yeast, olive oil and some coconut oil.
Overall thoughts of the day:
Good day. Digestion felt strong. Mentally focused. No complaints.
Michelle’s recap –
Then the TEST –> smoothie time! As Lori already mentioned we have missed fruit, we have missed smoothies, so we are hoping we can enjoy smoothies from time to time, as we are still watching our fructose intake.
I did 1/2 frozen banana, 1/4 cup frozen raspberry, 3 stalks of swiss chard, handful fresh basil, 1/2 lemon and 1 scoop perfect fit for a nutrient dense green smoothie!
Next meal was something fun! Lori and I felt like “bread” or at least our version of it. So we scanned our recipes and based off some of our grain-free mini pancakes came up with a more bread like goodie. Not quite perfect but worked for me! It was perfect to have with my egg, cabbage mixed green salad with coconut oil.
My meals only got better as the day went on.
An old time favorite – Mint Avocado Pudding with cacao nibs!!!
Seriously one of the best foods and we only pray our bodies like them as much as do!
This was beyond perfect!!
I did one whole avocado blended with a dash of water, 1 tbsp gelatin, a drop of mint extract and some stevia. And of course topped it off with cacao nibs!
HEAVEN in a cup! I could eat this every day!
This avocado gelatin pudding sure helped give me fuel as Lori and I are making great progress on our new business!
Dinner was not as exciting as my other meals but still a winner! I did take my pre-dinner supplements plus enjoyed a cup of peppermint tea before eating.
My plate was full of cooked kale, turnips, raw carrots, mahi mahi, coconut oil and olive oil. Topped with dulse flakes and nutritional yeast!
Overall, I felt great all day. I had energy, almost too much at night that I had trouble falling asleep.
