Happy What I Ate Wednesday! So far I haven't made any Christmas cookies. If I had, I would be forced to show you lots of photos of all the cookies I nibbled on while I was baking. That's still to come.
In the meantime, a look at some of the stuff I ate this week.
I like my smoothies to be a little (or a lot) sweet. So, rather than going totally green, I added a bit of veg and a lot of fruit to my breakfast smoothie today. The result is this delicious yet healthy green-ish smoothie.
It's actually kind of yellow, but a yellow smoothie sounds kind of disgusting, don't ya think? Recipe follows. Give her a try and let me know how it goes!
By the way, after I took this picture, I spilled my smoothie all over the paper, the table, the wicker chair next to the table and the floor. Lots of fun. That's how I roll.
On Friday, I showed you this little fruit platter I made for my kids' after-school snack. Got them to eat their fruit by prettying it up a bit. More good news...when I'm cutting up fruit for them, I actually nibble on it myself!
I also showed you the Sol Cuisine mushroom and rice veggie burger I had for lunch one day. I topped it with salsa in lieu of having a bun. I'm still trying to cut back on wheat. I also had some frozen veggies, sauteed and seasoned with garlic powder and Bragg's Liquid Aminos (similar to soy sauce but healthier).
For my husband's birthday, we ordered Chinese food from our favourite local Chinese restaurant. I have tried ordering rice noodles from them to avoid wheat, but there's nothing quite like this veggie lo mein, so I indulged. The middle dish is tofu in garlic sauce. So delicious. And fried rice, of course. Notice it isn't dark brown? I cannot stand when the rice is drowned in soy sauce (and MSG). Notice the wee can of San Pellegrino Limonata at the bottom right? That was another little treat for my husband's birthday.
Yesterday, I finally did some Christmas shopping. I stopped at the health food store to get my son some Emergen-C because he has a little cold. I was hungry and I had a bit of a headache, so I bought a gluten-free snack bar and a Kombucha drink. The snack bar was tasty, but it was so hard to chew that it made my jaw hurt. The Kombucha was a lovely lemongrass flavour. It is supposed to enhance your energy and your digestion, so I thought it might help with the headache. My headache did actually go away, but I'm not sure if that was from the drink or the buzz of shopping.
