What Exactly Does A Banana Buzzbomb Eat?
Even prior to going vegan, I’ve always liked to keep things simple. I prefer to stick with more natural, raw foods. To me, the less processed the better. I tend to use this variation most days during the week and mix it up with more recipes, such as black bean burgers, on the weekends. I never limit my raw fruit and vegetable intake, so I often snack throughout the day on fresh/dried fruits and veggies.
A typical day in the life of Banana Buzzbomb:
Lunch: Smoothie – Bananas, strawberries, mangoes, and spinach are my go-to mix, but I mix this up on a daily basis. To kick it up a notch I’ll add some hemp protein powder, maca, chlorella, and even swap out the water for coconut water. Most recently I’ve been using Vega One (I’ll post about this soon!). Don’t let smoothies intimidate you. You really can’t go wrong. Throw in fruit, ice/frozen fruit, water, and blend. Too thick? Add water. Too runny? Add fruit.
Mid-Afternoon Snack: Three oranges or a couple of dates. I never limit my raw fruit and vegetable intake. Remember, I eat a lot of bananas!
Dinner: Salad - I’m not just talking about any salad. I’m talking about a SALAD. No cereal-size bowl for me…I use a mixing bowl. I start with a base of greens like a spring mix or spinach (No, not iceberg!) and throw on any vegetable or fruit I can think of. Peppers, tomatoes, avocado, broccoli, and carrots. The list goes on. I usually top it off with beans. My preference? Garbanzo! Then throw on vinaigrette or another tasty dressing.
Dessert/Evening Snack: Ice Cream – I make my own ice cream using VERY ripe and frozen bananas. Throw them in the food processor, whip them up, and you have ice cream. Before I had my food processor I would put them in my blended with just a little water and blend. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of cocoa powder in the mix.
As I said, I like to keep things simple.
Do you keep things simple in the kitchen or do more gourmet meals??
Keep Smiling and Be Grateful =)
