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.
