Breakfast – #18
1 T maca powder
2 c spinach
1 c almond milk (not the one with coconut)
.5 c almonds
.5 c pepitas
.5 c pineapple
1 c ice
1T chia seeds (added right before drinking so I do not get pudding)
This one was great although the texture was a bit grainy. Perhaps too much spinach. I would still recommend this one.
It is easier today but I find I have to force myself to drink as I am not feeling as hungry now. No cravings for anything and I do not really miss chewing food. I will go back to food so I can eat with my children and because a lot fo the nutrients I need for fitness are better obtained through a variety of foods like rice, beans, lentils, etc.
I will continue to drink smoothies for morning meals because it is easier than avoiding anything then paying for it later.No coffee and no crash in the afternoon is a bonus! I know that I will also need to increase my nutrient intake as I get into my training for the marathon and then the Ironman. Right now, I find that I can take this slow and steady. Increasing my tolerance for both the social and behavioral aspects of a plant-strong diet. Putting myself back into the mindset that I do not give a crap what anyone else thinks is a key component to this. I am headed in a good direction. I think I will go meditate then go to bed.
