green smoothies! love them! today i made one with leftovers that i had: kale, spinach, blueberries (that i picked myself. sooo much cheaper – i paid 10$ for a gallon bucket, while at the market they are 4.50$ per quart. i pick them, wash, dry and then freeze and they’re ready for use! i love them in smoothies and also when they defrost in hot oatmeal.. the oatmeal turns purple. food is fun!), a large banana, a tbsp or so of chia seeds, ground flax, and almond milk! i drank that with strawberries and carrots w/ hummus for my snack.
happy hump day
i know i should work on my pictures, and i have a really really nice cannon rebel & everything.. it’s just easier to use my phone 🙂
large banana w/ pb & cocoa powder
carrots & hummus
for dinner i had the curry again.
i make a meal plan for the week and make enough for one 5-7 days. so this week was:
B) two slices udi’s toast w/ mashed avocado, oil and pink salt. Served w/ 1C blueberries and coffee w/ coconut milk
L) This is usually a bunch of snacks for me. Today was pine nut hummus & carrots, a large banana w/ pb & cocoa powder, another cup of coffee w/ coconut milk and a small “massaged” kale salad (no pic, but you massage the kale for a couple minutes in a bit of oil so it begins to break down. then add in cubed fruit and green onions. today i added mango & jalapenos)
D) “Curry” with ginger, garlic, crushed tomatoes, coconut milk, garam masala, chili powder, kale, sweet potatoes. Served w/ brown rice
I also made a zucchini & carrot noodle dish with a peanut sauce. I bought the wrong soy sauce (this is the ONLY soy I eat) and the flavor is all wrong. boyfriend puts hot sauce on it and no food goes wasted.
ps I am, quite literally, the poor college student. I spend 25$ or less a week for my boyfriend and I to eat. Granted, we always keep things such as brown rice and quinoa on hand. We both eat fruits & veggies and eat healthy to the best of our ability (I mean, c’mon, who could resist homemade dairy free Nutella?) He eats only chicken (I don’t), but we make a lot of soups and curries. They can be incredibly cheap. We NEVER go out to eat and if we do, our family is paying 😉 sometime i’ll make a post on how easy it is to spend that little for two people.
Two slices udi’s GF toast (unfortunately not egg free, but it is dairy and soy free.. my baker friend was out of town 😦 ), topped with one tiny mashed avocado, touch of oil, and pink salt. Served with coffee with coconut milk and a cup of blueberries.
Good morning! 🙂
