On another note, I did my raw challenge. I lasted five days, hahaha. I had no intention of sticking strictly to Ani Phyo's book (no chewable food for three days?!), but I think I did pretty well. Honestly, I felt lighter but I also felt hungry and with lower energy (I lowered my caffeine intake, too). I still think a healthy balance of cooked and raw food works best for me. Have you ever tried a cleanse? Did you stick to it? Did it 'work'?
If you're an Instagramer, you see way more of my daily food pictures. Today, though, I present to you my home-made, no-recipe, noodles-less vegan lasagna. I had the day off, so why not!
This bad boy is layered with tomato sauce, eggplant, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, tofu ricotta (blended with spinach and roasted garlic) and nutritional yeast.
It may not be the prettiest meal presentation wise, but it was gloriously delicious.
Bonus: no pasta, cheese or meat means less guilt!
Tonight, I plan on enjoying the solstice with a few mojitos (made with home-grown mint!) and a fire in our backyard with Brittinski. Ah, summer...
