Canteloupe Smoothie for today
Thursday, July 18, 2013
About 2-2.5 cups chopped up cantaloupe (roughly 1" trapezoidish cube-ish chunks
1 medium peach, plenty ripe, skin was almost too soft to be eaten by had. I just chunked it into blender container without the pit
1 almost too ripe avocado (adds creaminess!!)
1 frozen banana (whole, about 1 cup, plus or minus a few molecules
1 handful of walnut segments mostly halves (about 1/4-1/8 cup)
1-1.5 cuppa Hempmilk (the original not chocolate)
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 tablespoon chia seed
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of Bragg's NACV (natural apple cider vinegar)
1 tablespoon ish of raw coconut flakes
Did I forget anything?
Whirled it in the VitaMix untll smooth.
Yep, I forgot to mention the 1-2 teaspoons of food grade diatomaceous earth (kills any cooties I inadvertently ate.)
It's made oh prolly 4 glasses (10-12 oz glasses, depends on how full they are). One is in refrigerator for later. Hubby liked the sips I gave him, so I packed him a to-go mug for him to take - prolly 14-16 oz. Hoping DS will be willing to drink more of it now that he has finished this round of mowing. Or not.
I'm gonna have to edit on this blog later, because I need to go to my Mom's (30 min drive), take her somewhere for brunch, then to her 2 pm doctor appointment (her cardiologist - this was an appt she had before the torn retina episode.). And there is a link I want to add here, from James Fell "Body For Wife" blog, on the subject of tracking food calories, which a) is funny (aren't they all?), b) gently instructive (ditto), and c) the inspiration for this blog... Especially considering that I am more of a touchy-feely dreamer type and not so much analytical... I've gotten myself crazy laboriously tracking every nit-picking caloric detail of some favorite recipes and saved them to "My Recipes" and then when I make my recipe again a few weeks later, I can not seem to be able to find that recipe in "Favorites" in Nutrition Tracker and then just indicate that I ate a 1/2cuo serving of that recipe (like, most recently, my Black Bean & Corn salad posted a few weeks back.). Sigh. Evidently I'm not "doing it right". But after reading James Fell's blog , I can just look at my above list and think, "Yea, that was a decent breakfast - couple kinds of fruit, some nuts and Hempmilk for proteins, the chia seed also adds some protein and fiber, cinnamon and honey bring their special charms and sweetness, yea, this was just all right!!"
Still need to jiggle some calories dead later on, rebounding or walking...
