Tonight I made a vegan banana bread! Made with spelt flour, I also added a little almond flour (recently I’ve been trying to incorporate more almonds into my diet because of the nutrients in it that is good for healing purposes in my skin…aka my attempt to clear my acne) I also didn’t add any olive oil, sea salt, or nuts to lower the calorie/fat content since I already added fats from the almond flour and when I added a chocolate frosting. The frosting was made with medjool dates, raw oranic honey, a little coconut oil and organic and raw cacao powder!
And now I am currently waiting for it to finish baking!
so because I worked today, it’s hard to log my meals but for lunch:
-bowl of spinach, shredded carrots and beets and cabbage, alfalfa sprouts, terayaki almonds, craisins, quinoa and cornchowder to top it off :) I made a few alternations to the bowl but we sell it at work it’s called a monks bowl and it’s recently been my favorite thing to eat at work
-smoothie which I made before I left with bananas, blueberries, date rolls, maca, barley, a leeedle hemp seeds, and some kale… a go a little cray with the smoothies at work and it was decent but certainly not my best smoothie.
I JUST CAN’T WAIT FOR MY BANANAS TO FINALLY RIPEN!!!
random thought but it’s been frustrating me because I bought a CASE of organic bananas a week and a half and they still won’t ripen gahhhh
also! I ordered these craisins that don’t have any refined sugar in them they’re sweetened with apple juice and they’re pretty good-good enough, I’m just glad I can finally eat craisins again! (I’m not eating anything with refined sugar currently so I was sad when I wasn’t able to put craisins in my salad for a while)
anyway…..I just thought to update my process.
OHOHOH also last week (mon-thur) I went to the gym everyday after ultimate and ran atleast 2 miles but 4 miles most days! wooooo
my food log wasn’t anything to be proud of though-it wasn’t bad just I’ve been eating tofu again which normally I’m very strict not to and I’ve been eating a lot more rice, whole grainsish stuff than I would like to and not enough veggies. BUT I’M FIGURING IT OUT. I worked out allll week which was legit huge progress considering how long it’s been since I was consistantly going to the gym.
I’m happy though!!!
yay ok much love,
All I have wanted this week were bananas but they still haven’t ripened yet so I can’t eat them boooo

I there’s one thing I can say about cleanses/detoxes
is that BE SERIOUSLY CAREFUL ABOUT RELAPSING.
I don’t even want to necessarily call it relapse because I didn’t want to eat it but I was with my friend and I wasn’t comfortable telling her I couldn’t eat ice cream because I’m a raw vegan.. so when we went out for ice cream all I ate was a kiddie cup of sugar free ice cream and the next day I had a bagel with jelly and since then my skin has never been so bad before. I guess I didn’t realize how clean I got over these two weeks but I broke out a ton on my forehead and on the sides of my nose.
ahhhh I never want to eat anything like that again.
But in my attempt to see the good in any bad situation or what positives came out of a bad situation, this has seriously been a wake up call that i can’t hide that I’m a vegan from my friends any longer. It’s damaging my health and it’s not worth it, it made me more unhappy the results that came out of what I thought I was doing to prevent myself from an uncomfortable conversation.
but it’s kind of cool to see that that must have meant I was cleansing really well if my body reacted that badly to that little amount of food—as much as it absolutely sucks that i have to start over again.
