Day 68 Things that work and things that don't

Here are some of the things that make eating this way a pleasure and some that just don't!

Great discoveries: 

  • Adding almond extract or vanilla extract to my steelcut oats before I cook them.
  • Baking root vegetables with vegetable or chicken broth instead of roasting them with oil
  • Guacamole made from avocado, baked sweet potato, and salsa
  • Pacific organic beef, chicken, and veggie broth
  • Heirloom naval oranges
  • Seedless grapes in a smoothie
  • Chia, hemp, and buckwheat mix (Qia) added to the oats before I cook them
  • Maple agave
  • Kit's bars from the Clif Bar folks (simple, organic nuts and dates)
  • Celery: juiced and in soups
  • Lemon-infused salt
  • Trader Joe's 8 chopped vegetables, sunflower seeds, and a little vinaigrette
  • New Seasons and Whole Foods salad bars
  • Amy's Sonoma Burgers, Black Bean Chili, and most of her soups
  • Vanilla rice milk
  • Udi's bread
  • Baby turnips
  • Fava greens
  • Reboot with Joe's website tips and recipes
  • Nature's Path Sunrise cereal (corn, rice, quinoa, amaranth, flax, and buckwheat)--low-sugar, low-fat
  • And, of course, my pals: the crock pot, the juicer, and the Nutribullet
No thanks:

  • Brown rice tortillas
  • Stevia
  • Most rice bread
  • Sunshine burgers
  • Lima beans
  • Cilantro (I've got the soap gene)
  • Juiced mustard greens
  • Rice flour pancakes
