6-14-10 through 6-16-10

My kids and I are on an apple juice cleanse so this day
I had 2 cups of prune juice first thing in the morning and
then alternated between apple juice and water every hour until
6 pm.
That was all I was going to do but the boys and I decided to
also have something for dinner so we had rice noodles with cheese.
I know- cheese is almost the worst thing you could have on a cleanse
but this blog is all about being honest about my whole foods intake.
Sometimes I don't do very well on it and sometimes I'm a rockstar!

We did the cleanse for 3 days and each day had something for dinner.
The second day was sweet potatoes and onions, and the third day was
mashed potatoes. We should have had just raw veggies but we are running low on fresh things. It is halfway through the month and we only travel to get groceries once a month. We are excited for the garden's progress so we can have fresh stuff way more often.

My better eating lately is showing up in how I feel.
It is easy to eat good when you get in the hang of it.

Wednesday June 02, 2010

The weekend was full of unhealthy traveling food. I did make many good decisions like snacking on ice water to keep me awake while driving instead of caffeine and only stopping for fast food once. The fast food made us all feel yucky.

Ben made broccoli soup and rice at Mom's house and it was totally delicious even though we used vegetable broth and rice milk instead of their less healthy counterparts.

I am home now and struggling to get back on track. My belly is slightly distended from eating foods that don't easily digest and my energy levels are low. I am on a good track today and will post that tomorrow. For now, here is what I ate yesterday.

Before 10:00
apple cider vinegar/honey drink
red raspberry leaf herbal tea
berry smoothie

After noon:
kashi crackers - these were left from the traveling. Sprouted whole wheat crackers
would have been better for the digestive system.
mints - my sugar cravings are back because of my weekend traveling diet. I am
so glad that they don't have to stay!

Nature's burger (dried mixture that you blend with boiling water and fry like a burger)
white bread burger bun (it was soft and pleasant to bite into but I know that it is glue in the intestines)
bbq sauce
dijon mustard
steak seasoning

Spring mix salad
grape tomatoes
Annie's Naturals ceasar salad dressing

more mints

Here's to doing better every day and looking forward, not back.

Coleslaw - I know - coleslaw for breakfast? Sometimes you've gotta do what you've gotta do! Belly ache though, is what happens when you have coleslaw for breakfast!

salad from Ridley's
Annie's Naturals Caesar Salad Dressing
Stone ground wheat crackers

1 gummy worm - a new pre-fishing tradition :)
dutch oven burger, carrots, peas, corn, onions
3 sprouted wheat biscuits roasted on a stick over a fire

My boys ate the fish we caught. I put butter and lemon in the fish and rolled it
in tin foil. A couple of minutes in the fire was all it took. My 3 year old Josiah
ate both of the fish he caught!;)

3 saltines
1 mint
berry smoothie

carrot soup
big salad with homemade dressing

pasta salad
3 T. cheesecake
5 cookies

This day's eating was not so great and the next day I did not feel my best.

5/25/2010 Tuesday

Before noon:
Green Smoothie
frozen bananas
frozen mixed berries
frozen spinach
wheat germ oil

After noon:
Pre-made salad from Ridley's
mixed greens

Carrot soup warmed in the blender
dollop of butter

wasabi almonds (these are not the healthiest choice because they have been cooked - it would have been better to have raw almonds but they were not available, and the wasabi is so yummy)

Chicken Breast in the crockpot
garlic powder
ginger powder
onion powder
sea salt

Rice cooked in organic chicken broth(rice was not sprouted as I'd have preferred)

Salad with cucumbers and tomatoes and garlic vinaigrette

I realize that supper was a food combining no-no having protein and starch combined in a meal. It was not planned that way - it just happened. I can't let that happen too often but once in a while it is o.k. I should have taken some enzymes with it to help it digest better.

I also had half a chip with salsa at the Rock Rabbit. My husband wanted me to try it and it was very good! Next time I'll eat at the restaurant instead of beforehand at home:)

Monday 5/24/2010

This is my first post in my Garden of Eatin' blog. I will be blogging about my whole foods intake. I think it will help me to stay on track eating the things I know are best for me if others can see what it is I am choosing and perhaps I can inspire others to fuel their bodies well. I do not think that diet has to be 100 % perfect. I believe in moderation in all things so I am shooting for 60 - 80% whole foods and will be fine with whatever else happens within reason.

Today before noon:
1 clove of garlic shredded and swallowed with water (had a cold trying to begin)
4 saltine crackers to ease the pain the garlic gave my empty stomach
2 cups of berry smoothie
1 cup red raspberry leaf tea

After noon:
1 bowl raw carrot soup made in the fantastic Blend-Tec blender
2 2"x2" pieces of dairy free, egg free sprouted wheat corn bread (I made it with honey for the
sweetener and it is soooooo good.

Dinner will be steamed herbed potatoes, more cornbread, and peas. (We are out of fresh greens or we would be having a salad also.)
