I've been sick with a cold/upper respiratory blargle for a few days. Currently watching YouTube videos on the chaise lounge with a cost blanket and a snuggle Neo Kitty. I am also eating cheese balls with a spoon because that is how I roll. So lazy! No orange fingers!

Lunch this week has been a soup I made on Sunday

black bean, roasted corn, carrots, celery, bell peppers and vegetable stock with a jar of salsa and can of chopped tomato. I have been putting fresh spinach in it and reheating it so the spinach wilts. I got some crackers made with rosemary and flaxseed to go with.

Dinner last night was pasta made of black beans and chickpea flour. Served that with mushrooms, broccoli and zucchini and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast.

Dinner tonight was a salad of romaine, edamame, shredded carrots, cucumber, sprouts, raisins and a sesame cashew ginger dressing I made from scratch last week :)

I had a request for a general idea of my meal plan so here goes

Today I had a smoothie for breakfast - almond milk, cashews, ground flax seed, a medjool date, fresh blueberries, a whole banana, a big handful of spinach, frozen strawberries, frozen mangos

smoothie is always Almond Milk/Hemp Milk, dried goods like nuts or seeds, fresh fruit then spinach or kale and then frozen fruit on top. I rarely put in icecubes

I also had Make Ahead Oatmeal - you put 1/4 cup steel cut oats, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons chia seeds and 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup almond or hemp milk in a closed container in the fridge. Let it sit overnight or a whole day and then heat for about a minute in the microwave when ready to eat. The oatmeal soaks up the liquid and is creamy and tasty even if you let it sit in the fridge for 48 hours before heating it up.

Usually I will have an apple or some mandarin oranges too with breakfast. But honestly the smoothie fills a 32 oz cup so I can't always have room in my stomach for Smoothie and Oatmeal and fruit. I will do just Oatmeal and fruit if I run late in the morning and don't have time to make a smoothie. In that case I throw about an ounce of nuts in the oatmeal.
