A Day In The Life

Saturday, March 24th, 2007

Or…

“What Some Random Guy from New Hampshire Ate Last Sunday.” :)

Breakfast: homemade soy yogurt, banana, flaxseeds, soynuts, coffee

Lunch: mung bean sprouts, red onion, garlic, hot peppers, and broccoli in a sauce made primarily from nutritional yeast (Lewis Labs, my favorite), 3 ounces of vegan white wine (usually red)

Now, let the snack parade begin! Yes, I’m a grazer. ;)

cantaloupe with dandelion greens

1/3 of an avocado

brown rice protein in black coffee

kiwi, dates (Deglet Noor), and Medjool), raw untoasted nori

Dinner: kale, collard greens, cauliflower and a bowl of raw veggies (beets, brussels sprouts, celery, garlic, jalapeno, yellow carrots, red onion, turnip, and zucchini), 3 ounces of wine

shiitake mushroom and rosemary tomato sauce with konjac noodles

Some of the greens and cilantro were blended into a pesto-like dish, combined with a handful of veggies from the big bowl. The pasta sauce went over the rest for a warm, cooked meal feel yet with all the raw goodness still intact.

Dessert: an organic red delicious apple and red cabbage

Late night treat: blueberries and strawberries with homemade soy yogurt and soynuts, cup of unsweetened hot cocoa

In a prior post, we took a look at the importance of calories per volume of food when it comes to satiety. At approximately 2000 calories for the day, I can assure you I felt no hunger. The Carb/Protein/Fat macronutrient breakdown was 62/20/18. And with saturated fat coming in at only 6 grams, it ranked a respectable Poly:Sat (P/S) ratio of nearly 2 (anything over 1 is considered healthy).

Happy Meatout

What’s this guy smiling about?

Must be Meatout 2007! Nevertheless, this happy fella took me by surprise the other day as I flipped an onion slice over to top a strip of eggplant. Maybe I should have sold him on eBay. LOL.

strawberries

Monday, March 12th, 2007

I’ve been toying with increasing the percentage of raw foods in my diet lately. Here is a typically colorful evening meal.

Finely diced onions, garlic, celery, jalapeno, carrots (or was it butternut squash?) and beets with larger chunks of zucchini and broccoli top a cooked spaghetti sauce of tomato paste, mushrooms, herbs, and spices.

I usually only buy organic frozen strawberries as they are among practically every top-10 pesticide list out there. For example, this one from the Environmental Working Group or this one from The Green Guide. However, while at my local produce market, I spotted these for 99¢ a pound! I couldn’t resist their freshness and picked up two. I had them over turnip greens with balsamic vinegar and a just cracked peppercorn medley.
