Today I was not feeling overly hungry so I didn’t eat too much. My stomach was feeling a little off for a few hours. For breakfast I drank some lemon water and a big veggie smoothie with carrots, celery, cilantro, parsley, peaches, pinch of turmeric and with coconut water and pomegranate juice.

For lunch I made a big kale salad with ground pumpkin seeds, cherry tomatoes, small handful of trail mix, lemon juice, garlic powder and a little flax oil. I also snacked on some blue tortilla chips and hummus. I forgot to take a picture of the salad at lunch time but I made this same salad along with a bowl of raspberries from our yard for dinner. Not the best photo -it was taken at night with horrible lighting!

I made a festive little blueberry orange tart for the 4th of July. This little tart had a splash of some orange liqueur to give a little kick.

  1. I love desserts for one! (I know it says 1-2, but I’m not sharing mine with anyone!) And what a gorgeous picture! Pinning this on our Raw Foods Thursdays board. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

  2. Looks so great! I’d love to feature this as one of my favorites on Healthy Vegan Fridays. Can you add a back link?
