Another What I Eat in a Day to Lose Weight on the Eat To Live nutritarian diet.

 

BREAKFAST – ALMOND JOY SMOOTHIE

Sometimes you feel like a nutty breakfast!  This is a delicious almond joy smoothie. Add a small head of romaine lettuce spinach, ground flaxseed, some coconut water, almond, cocoa powder, a medjool date and plain filtered water.  Then add a frozen banana and blend it all together. We add some ice cubes for additional frostiness now we end up with a huge 32-oz smoothie to start off our Nutritarian day!! You’ve got to love getting all those greens in first thing!

 

LUNCH – SUMMER SALAD & SUSAN McCULLEY’S CREAMY DILL DRESSING

We start by getting our dill dressing prepared. We put together lime juice, two small medjool dates, water, tahini, chia seeds to help thicken (and for the omega fatty acids). Add  some unseasoned rice vinegar, a squeeze of mustard, some garlic and onion powder, miso and some fresh garlic for a nice flavor and a bit of punch. Use the amount of garlic that works for you (the amount I use is a vampire chasing quantity!!!). We blend this up until it’s smooth.  If it’s too thick you can add some water and just make it however you like it. Also add a bit of the date soaking water for sweetness, some fresh ground black pepper and a bit of sriracha for oomph!! Feel free to use any kind of hot sauce that you prefer. Lastly we pull off the delicate dill fronds and pop them in for a quick blend and then the dressing is ready. This makes five to six servings so you’ll have it to use the rest of the week.

For our salad – the base is baby romaine lettuce and baby kale but you can use whatever base you want. Chop it well and pour it into a serving bowl.  Arrange the toppings – start with chopped onion, cherry tomatoes, steamed asparagus, bean sprouts and cucumbers. This  gorgeous summer salad is then ready to eat with that delicious dressing.

 

DINNER – SQUASH & BEANS

For dinner we are having squash and beans. Fresh summer veggies and some beans as we zoodle up the zucchini. To cook, just turn some noodles into the pan. Tear bigger bits into smaller pieces so it’s easier to eat. Then add some mushrooms, cook a little then add some thinly sliced onion. Cube up the summer squash,  take some cooked baby lima beans and stir those in. Sprinkle some no salt seasoning on top and let it steam until the veggies are softened. We then serve the veggie and beans with some sriracha or other hot sauce (just a bit because of that sodium).

All of our g-bombs are included in today’s recipes except for berries, so with dinner we’re going to be finishing up with a cup of fresh berries. Use any kind that you like. Thank goodness it’s summer because they are delicious right now!!!

 

I hope you really liked these!
