Brekky: another smoothie--I'm tweaking the recipe. This one has more greens than before. I also want to have less of the pomegranate juice. Even though it's healthy, I don't like buying those bottles and then recycling them. I think this is the only food I buy in a container now! It will be a while before I run out, but when I do, I don't think I'll be buying it on a regular basis anymore. 0.5 oz brazil nuts
snacks: I was gone until 3 pm and doing physical labor so had a lot of snacks: an apple, 3 carrots and 2 essene buds that I brought. plus an apple, 2 oranges, some carrots and celery sticks that others brought.
Late Lunch/early dinner: baked sweet potato. apple-cabbage dish. I still love this dish. It is so easy to make and so good.
Dessert: cherry banana ice cream. My new favorite ice cream--super simple. I added cocoa to housemate's and I think that was even better. I've been avoiding chocolate because of the caffeine but I might make an exception for this. Maybe 1.5 tsp of cocoa powder is low enough caffeine...or I could remember to add vanilla next time and then I won't want the cocoa.
took my supplements.

I didn't wake up hungry today. Maybe this is the right amount of calories for me even though the websites I googled tell me I need more. Does menopause give you lower metabolism? I've had a lot of skipped periods lately (yeah!).
