Breakfast of champions…
Also finished off my Mom’s healthy oatmeal cookies on the way to a play date at the zoo this morning. Had mac & cheese, and roasted beets with orange vinaigrette for lunch. Plus another 16 oz of green juice.
Not feeling great this afternoon. Very tired. Lesions are becoming more of a problem. 3 small ones up front and a larger one in the back on the underside of my tongue. The bigger one is actually less painful because of its location. They are slightly affecting my speech at this point, but are not affecting my ability or desire to eat. Today was the last day I was supposed to take the anti fungal that has been controlling the thrush that tends to take over my mouth without it. We’ll see what happens with that over the next few days. If it comes back with a vengeance, I might have to start researching candida cleanse diets.
Anyway, the hubs and I had date night tonight. He took me to a raw foods cafe nearby. I was in heaven! It’s not close enough (or cheap enough) to eat there regularly, but I got some good ideas to try to recreate at home.
Appetizer was a macadamia nut hummus with sundried tomato crackers made in a dehydrator.
Main course was pad thai, made with spiralized zucchini and carrots with a nutty sauce. This is a pic of the last bite. I keep forgetting to take photos BEFORE I eat. It was YUM! My husband liked it, too, so I know it was good.
And dessert was cheesecake. Not quite sure how they did it, but it was the most delicious thing I’ve tasted in a long, long time. Almost tasted like they’d used buttermilk somehow. But it was completely raw and vegan.
Such a perfect date night. And, though I wasn’t feeling my best, I’m grateful that I was feeling well enough to truly enjoy myself and my husband. So much fun. And he really liked all the food. So there IS hope for incorporating more raw foods into our diets, I just need to learn how to prepare them better.
