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!
