Disclaimer (got this from Ellie) – everything pictured was eaten; not everything eaten was pictured.
Yesterday I started off the morning starving, so I chopped a cantaloupe in half and ate the entire thing with a spoon. This was between 9:30-10:30am. I think there was more fruit as well. I’ve been working on a watermelon and some bananas.
When I got a package from Amazing Grass I jumped right in. I had this Very cool Organic GREENSuperFood Chocolate Whole Food Energy Bar (raw, cold processed, alkaline, gluten free, fair trade, dairy free, vegan). The bar was so delicious – chocolate coating, and the inside was perfectly sweet, raw, and delicious. I’d highly recommend it. (Nutritionals – 230 calories, 9 grams fat, 37 carbs, 4 fiber, 5 protein, lots of vitamins.) I had this around 11:15am. I was still feeling peckish so I had a bunch of baby carrots as well (unpictured).
Sometime in the afternoon after I taught my class (Geometry) I made myself a large bowl of oat bran (heaping 1/2 cup dry) with avocado (1/2 of a big one) and honey (2-3 tablespoons). Oh, and I cooked it in water and unsweetened almond milk.
I did some yoga – 60 minutes of a Wade Zinter flow (9/5/08). I just picked one that said it had twists in it. It didn’t actually have that many. After that I tried 2 more Amazing Grass products…
Amazing Meal – Pomegranate Mango Infusion. I had a whole packet mixed with almond milk and water. (Nutritionals – 110 calories, 1 gram fat, 13 carbs, 6 fiber, 10 protein.) It was… okay. I was way more impressed by the delicious amazing bar I had in the morning. This tasted kind of chalky. I also tried another Amazing Meal – Chocolate Infusion. Same thing – a whole packet mixed with water and unsweetened almond milk. This was much better. Still a little bit chalky, but chocolatey too. Yummy. And I was snacking on a bunch of these (Ezekiel bread with raw honey):
I decided to stick with the starch theme of the day and make another avocado-honey pizza for me (Bobby had a normal pizza on the other half). I had the whole half on the left seen here.
And more slices of bread with raw honey as dessert. I actually skipped the chocolate yesterday; I think I had too much the day before and it didn’t feel too good.
Apparently I had this too (it’s in my camera) – maybe with dinner, or before dinner, or in the afternoon (baby carrots with raw honey):
Again, everything pictured was eaten; not everything eaten was pictured.
Do you guys have questions about anything I’m doing with my food combining? I’ve emailed a lot of people individually, but maybe I should do a more comprehensive post regarding this new combining thing that I’m going… Again, I’m *not* trying to eat raw. I’m trying to:
- eat fruit in the morning.
- for the rest of the day – keep “starch”, “flesh”, and “nuts/seeds/dried fruit” in their separate categories. these categories don’t “combine”. however, raw veggies combine with all of these categories and cooked veggies combine with the first two.
Hope this helps :) Happy Hump Day!
