My boy is much happier today. I think he's been detoxing. I gave him one of his heavy metal clay baths last night to help things along. He woke up in a great mood. Despite not taking a nap, he had ZERO meltdowns today. What a refreshing day it was!
Not much else going on today...on to the yummy pictures!
Breakfast - This was a hit and a miss. Turkey sausage. Yikes. It was so spicy and gross. Even Rhett didn't finish his. So, I made up for it with scrambled eggs, fresh cantaloupe, strawberries and a smoothie. The smoothie was spinach, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, almond milk, and probiotics. Seth had his buckwheat pancakes. I made a little extra grain boost to go in them....quinoa, amaranth and millet in the VitaMix. I used 3/4 cup buckwheat and 1/4 cup of the mix. Surprisingly, he didn't notice a difference and ate them right up! Yay!
Lunch - Beloved Chipotle. Oh how we've missed you for a whole 5 days. That rice is so wonderful, I just wish it was whole grain. A girl's gotta splurge every once in a while though, right?
Snack - Raw cookie balls. These things are fan-freaking-tastic. They taste exactly like cookie dough.
Here is the recipe:
2/3 c raw cashews
1/3 c oats
3 Tbsp agave or maple syrup
1 Tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp of chopped dark chocolate
Blend cashews and oats in a blender until fine. Add sweetener and vanilla. Blend until it all becomes wet. Take the yummy cookie mass out of the blender, add chocolate and roll into balls. If it's hard to handle straight from the blender, you may want to put it in the fridge for a few minutes.
Do we like these?
Yes we do! Thanks mom!
Dinner - Quinoa cooked in fresh chicken broth. Roasted veggies - red potato, onion, garlic, red pepper, broccoli, carrots, zucchini with olive oil, salt and pepper. All drizzled with Bragg's Liquid Aminos, which is a healthy alternative to soy sauce. This tasted better than any take-out chinese food I've ever had. Rhett could barely swallow his first bite without saying how good he thought it was.
