Getting Organized.

"Take a minute to get organized," is something I often whisper to Baby-O when she is worked up and trying to nurse. It's something I've had to do much more of myself since adding this beautiful bundle of joy into the mix. Gone are the days of waiting until dinner time to decide what to eat, for example. I have really taken to planning out a week (or so) of meals before heading to the market on Sunday afternoon (once my little bear is a bit older and we no longer need papa's assistance, we'll go back to a weekday grocery shopping trip-- Sundays are insane). Here's what we're feasting on for dinner this week:

  • Baja-style tempeh tacos (vegan) & gunsmoke slaw (raw vegan).

  • Minestrone (vegan).

  • Curried butternut squash soup (vegan) and mixed grains (vegan) with sauteed chard & parsnips (vegan).

  • Tortilla bake (i vegan-ized this recipe and added more veggies) & cornbread (dairy-free).

  • Indonesian tofu stew with jasmine rice (vegan).

  • Dal (vegan) with Garlic Naan and green veggie salad (raw vegan).

I like to make a bit extra so we'll have leftovers for lunch and for freezing.

Also, I'm slowly reclaiming my high-raw, high-vegan lifestyle by adding more raw vegan choices to my diet. (Choosing Raw, one of my favorite sites, recommends ADDING what you want more of rather than starting off by subtracting or limiting yourself. I love this. It definitely corresponds with my personal philosophy of beginning where you are.) One of my favorite ways to do this is with breakfast. I'm back on green juices and smoothies. Here are two favorites for the week:

Thai Spinach Smoothie

1/2 bag of organic baby spinach leaves

1-1/2 cups frozen mango

1 organic banana

1/2 can organic coconut milk

1/2 cup orange juice

Blend ingredients & enjoy.

loving kale.

Easy Way to Meet Kale Smoothie

1 bunch organic kale

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 cup frozen pineapple

1 organic banana

2 cups orange juice

Blend, drink, and watch a love affair with kale begin.

Hope you are having a delicious week!
