Breakfast. AKA. Best Meal of the Day!!!

Today I woke up, decided I wanted ice cream for breakfast.
Whipped out my blender and the frozen bananas, and VOILA.
Craving satisfied.

raw cacao nibs (optional)
dried coconut (optional)
banana slices (optional)
cinnamon (not optional)
vanilla bean (not optional)

I'm eating this as I type. Funny thing is that this morning I woke up and it was SO COLD. Like, nose reddened, don't sleep with the windows open OR without socks cold. [I actually never sleep with socks, that grosses me out]

MOVING ON TO BREAKFAST#2. I named this Yin-Yang.

-wild frozen blueberries

-vanilla bean

sprinkle hemp on top..

On another note, my neighbour birthed THIS baby from her backyard. She named him Zach and as much as I hate to say it, it was THE most delicious zucchini I've ever eaten. I juiced it, made raw pasta with it, my mom bbq'd some of it, I juiced more of it, and blended the last bit. AND the pulp fed my garden.

First Day of School!!

OH, how I love the feeling of a new school year. New classes, friends, clothes, a fresh start, and most of all the overwhelming desire to succeed. I'm going into fourth year university, shocking since I'm not sure how I ended up here, almost near the end of my degree. HOWEVER, I'm not complaining, I can't wait to start again and achieve the list of goals I have prepared for this year.

Some goals specific to health and school routines are:

-juice greens daily
-bring emergency snack kit ERR' WHERE.
-find people that are on the same wavelength; with health as a top priority

I will be posting more sustainable recipes, using the vegetable/fruit pulps from juices I make. It's going to be experimentation city, so if anyone already has recipes for these things, or tips hook me up!!

Definitely not AS excited as when I was in elementary school, but close.

On The Road: Traveling Raw

So summer has almost come to an end for most, I personally can see the stress of school waiting for me just around the corner. This year university starts on the 12th, giving me a week of relaxation since being back from working in Ottawa. I have wisely chosen to spend these seven days in Victoria, BC with two of my best friends! I will provide tourist-y updates about this as the days go by, but more importantly providing updates on how I've been eating, and how you can eat inexpensively and healthily during travel.

Breakfast-bowl of blueberries, papaya and (lots of water the night before...don't want to dry out on the plane ride)
Lunch- 3 Medjool dates + lots of water and mint tea
Dinner-dried fruit/seed trailmix + 1 head of brocolli w/ hummus + 2 delicious containers of blueberries
Total Cost: $11 + free breakfast thanks to mom.

Breakfast from today: I brought chia seeds and cinnamon from home, and bought these massive BC grown nectarines! Easy, and delicious.
Lunch-red leaf lettuce salad with avocado, nectarine, cilantro, hummus
Dinner-red leaf lettuce salad with avocado, nectarine, cilantro, sunflower seeds
Total Cost: $8.17

Couldn't wear nail polish at my summer job, now I can..hence the dark plum lacquer :P

Kale Confetti Salad

Easy Easy Easy!! University students take note! I've made this salad multiple times in inconvenient situations (ex. dorm rooms, tiny kitchens, on the road: use plastic bag to mix and eat out of), it always pleases, and tastes amazing, especially when left for the next day.

-1 head of kale: sliced thinly
-3-5 carrots: grated
-3-5 beets: grated
-one clove of garlic minced
-juice of one lemon
-sea salt
-olives: de-pit them
-sunflower seeds: we (my mom and i) always add these, but today we didn't have them and it was just as delicious without.


This yields a good family size portion. You can keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.
