Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. Summer is flying by and before we know it, August will be here!!! Crazy!
So my appointment with the naturopath went well. I really liked him and felt that he understood my problems exactly. Basically he told me what I already kinda knew, no dairy and to eat whole foods. He also gave me a couple of supplements to help me digest my food and ease stomach upsets. As a result of eating minimal processed food I’m also pretty much eating gluten free, which has worked for me in the past. I feel really good so far!!! Its been a week and I can’t believe the difference. I thought it would take longer! I could go more into what exactly I was told at the naturopath but I don’t really want to bore anyone….. and it would be a heck of a lot to type out so → Food Pictures 🙂
I’ve been eating oatmeal every single morning. I’ve been puppy sitting for my brother so I’ve only had access to quick oats and the microwave. From my experience I have come to the conclusion that making oatmeal in the microwave makes ugly oatmeal. It still tastes delish but once I mix in my flax, it’s darn ugly! Look at it!
1/3 cup quick oats
2/3 cup water
1 tbsp flax (ground) mixed in at the end
topped with some unsweetened almond milk 🙂
I’ve also been eating a lot of salads. This one is topped with some leftover sauteed veggies, so good!
For dinner last night I made brown rice sushi!!!
I made 3 similar types of sushi:
1. avocado, cucumber, and red pepper
2. avocado, cucumber, red pepper, and roasted portabello mushrooms
3. avocado and roasted portabello mushrooms
They were all so good! I used the recipe from Veganomicon for the roasted portabellos and they were so good in the sushi!! I also made a salad and topped them with leftover avocado, portabello mushrooms, cashews, walnuts, red pepper, and cucumber!
The sushi was so good! However, my stomach was upset for the rest of the night…. I feel like it might have been either the marinade for the mushrooms or the soy sauce. I’ll just have to experiment.
Ok, time to get on with my day! Today is my grandma’s birthday so we’re going to go out for dinner and go back to my parents for some dessert! I love my grandma! I grew up with my grandparents living downstairs from us and I feel so lucky to have had that. Happy Birthday Grandma!!! xoxoxo
Have such a nice day everyone! I hope it’s nice and sunny where you live 🙂
