Good morning and happy first day of the Raw Wednesday Challenge! I’m so glad that so many of you are with Gena and I this month as we make a pact to make one raw meal + one raw snack every Wednesday of the month. This will be exciting!
I decided to start my day raw to get off on the right foot! So, I had raw oatmeal with goji berries, cacao nibs and almond butter—
It was DELISH! Here’s how I made it:
Last night I soaked 1/4 cup oat groats in enough water to cover. This morning I drained the water off and added the groats + 1 banana + 1/2 scoop Sun Warrior protein powder + cinnamon + splash of water in the Vita Mix and blended until creamy. Then, I topped it all off with a big scoop of raw almond butter, goji berries and delicious cacao nibs. I am in love with these nibs from Navitas Naturals…..they are like chocolate chips but SO much better. They brought the most delicious crunch and chocolatey goodness to my bowl!
This was definitely a filling breakfast but I do not feel weighed down in the least bit. Now I just have to focus on getting my one raw snack today in at some point!
GAH!!! I’m getting my tattoo today!!!!!!!!
I don’t know why I’m anxious seeing as I already have two tattoos, both of which were not really thought out though and a result of my college years. I love that I’m getting something that really means something to me, I just hope it looks the way I envision it. Too bad John got all the artistic talent and I can’t even draw a stick figure, or I would make a sketch to bring in. Our appointment is at noon and I will definitely bring my camera so we can document the whole process. I still can’t even believe both my parents are getting ones as well and my dad is hell bent on getting the exact same thing John wanted, in the exact same spot. I hope John will be there with us, holding our hands and laughing hysterically.
