I eat a variety of greens, sprouts, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. I also eat a small amount of fruit. For breakfast, I drink a green smoothie most days with either spinach, mung bean sprouts, a banana, stevia to sweeten, and Super Green Powder. I sometimes add an apple and change the greens from spinach, to kale, collard, or today tiny baby bok choy.
For lunch I have a salad with spinach, mache, pea sprouts, English pea sprouts, radish sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, and a variety of colorful marinated vegetables as a topping. I often add nasturtium flowers and eat this salad rolled up in nori. For a simple dinner, I have a variety of sliced vegetables such as zucchini, cucumber, celery, radishes, tomatoes, and baby carrots with a raw almond butter dip or spread that I make hot, salty with garlic, or sweet with grated coconut and dates for variety of taste.
Without calculating anything, I have a variety of foods with amino acids, vitamins, anti-oxidants, and I always focus on taste and beauty of presentation so I have food for my stomach and my soul. I also take a variety of supplements for added insurance for my overall health, but no protein supplements, just whole food.
