What I ate today: Detox

So the word “detox” is a total fad right now. But it does emit a lot of positivity, which is why I totally understand why products are so quickly described to be “detoxing” in nature, and which is also why I described my food diary as a “detox” day. I didn’t do any sports this week (minus yoga), which is something I generally don’t do too well with. And I was stressed out of my mind…the combination out of the two resulted in me feeling very tired, wiped out, and not at all like myself all week. I figured it was time to hit the reset button before the weekend, and I must say that after I “detoxed” last Friday, I felt much, much better.

The January Salad: Green Parsley Olive Zucchini Salad

Following in the footsteps of my October, November, and December salad, I made my January salad on Monday. It’s a travel-safe salad perfect for long workdays – or, as in my case, a day of university courses and study groups. It’s made up of almost only “green” ingredients, excepting the dressing and the millet, of course.

The December Salad: “Freaky” Ginger Fruit Salad With Salty Pistachio Crumbs

After my two hits “The October Salad” and “The November Salad”, I am not letting you down in December, and am, finally, on its very last day, posting my recipe for the December salad. However, this one is a little different. I was in a bit of a bind this month, as I don’t really enjoy salad as a main meal as much when it’s cold out. I much prefer soups, stews, or warm things in general when I am chilled to the bone – who wouldn’t?

Hunger-Fighting Avocado Salmon Salad And Homemade Blueberry Banana Yogurt

I have been sitting around the apartment waiting for my boyfriend to bring home some groceries for about 3 hours, but he still hasn’t shown. I’m guessing his training is running a little long, so I finally gave in to the roaring starving monster that has been screaming in my belly.

Flavorful Multicolor Veggie Pancake Striped Soup

Last week, I made some pancakes for lunch. Not the small, round, puffy American kind: the German, flat, crépe-like kind. They weren’t 100% vegan, as I used a real egg, but could easily have been made vegan by using a flax egg instead. I won’t post a recipe for those pancakes today, any crépe recipe would suffice. Besides, today isn’t about the pancakes, it’s about what I did with the left-overs! Continue reading Flavorful Multicolor Veggie Pancake Striped Soup

Having Breakfast And Detoxing Green Smoothie

We all have those days where we just feel extremely bloated and yucky, am I right? I had one of those on Friday, and didn’t feel like having anything for breakfast. Which may not sound so bad, but if I don’t have breakfast, I start feeling very sick stomach-wise and weak quite quickly, which is why I ALWAYS have breakfast, even if it’s just an apple or, as was the case on Friday, a smoothie.
