I actually slept in today to give my body a rest- it felt wonderful!! I love waking when its light outside. That said, i also feel like i missed a few hours of productive time. But the body needed a rest and extra sleep is always a plus!!!
Every morning i start the day with 24-32 ounces of water- typically alkaline water with lemon and cayenne or just lemon- today it was just lemon!!
After that all i really wanted was something light and cleansing- i chose cantaloupe. it was delicious and refreshing!! Tuesdays i'm at the studio seeing clients and patients while the boys are at camp. Typically I see clients back to back so i don't have time to eat other than a quick bite between clients. Today i sipped on my tea (i'm obsessed with teas- more to come in future blogs), drank lots of water and munched on cucumbers and carrots. Nice light day of whole organic real food as usual.
When i pick the boys up from camp they are always extremely hungry. This is the perfect time to have loads of healthy snacks ready for them. In the car i always have fresh fruit and veggies such as cucumbers, carrots, grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe etc... The downfall is my car does get a little messy- but their nutrition is more important!!
For dinner (or what i call dinner- our 4 o'clock meal) i made a light Tomato Basil Dressing!! I started with a basic recipe and added more. Here is the basic recipe i started with:
3 roma tomatoes
2 tbsps apple cider vinegar
2 tbsps hemp oil
1 handful basil
1 tbsp coconut nectar
Black pepper and sea salt to taste
Then i added:
1 more handful basil
1 handful cilantro
a few dashes of cayenne
1-2 tbsps scallions
2 garlic cloves
1/2 ripe avocado
The result was fantastic over a bed of greens, sprouts, tomatoes and pumpkin seeds!!!
I always create a variety of ways of eating one meal when i'm eating. I put the salad in a nori sheet and dipped it in more dressing.
Next i put a little salad in a bowl and added chunks of avocado and more pumpkin seeds!!
After dinner it was off to karate for mason with my snack bag again. i always have snacks with me. This time i had grapes, kale chips, a vega bar and almond milk. Owen always snacks while mason does his karate!!
be well, kelly
