Raw Food Day 4

with 2 comments

Today started with the realization that I have a new favorite breakfast: sliced banana with raw almond butter sprinkled with raw cacao nibs. The cacao nibs were the most exciting part, as I had eaten the banana with almond butter already this week. Another exciting surprise was my first visit to the new location of FüD (no website yet) on 17th street just a couple storefronts west of Blue Bird. FüD is a vegan and raw restaurant that serves delicious foods and I fully intend to become a regular.  I had dinner with family and I have to admit it was hard to pass on the bread, peas and rice. Everything smelled and looked so delicious. But I stuck with it and had an amazing salad instead. I don’t even wanna talk about how good the coffee smelled after dinner. Anyway, here’s today’s delicious menu…

Breakfast: 1 banana, 2 tbsp raw almond butter, 2 oz raw cacao nibs, 1 grapefruit.

WW Points: 8.5

Mid-morning drink: GT’s Organic Raw Kombucha Botanic No. 9

WW Points: 1

Lunch, “The Crisp” at FüD: romaine lettuce, avocado, pumpkin seeds, cherry tomatoes, fresh oregano and an amazing dressing that had cashews and who knows what other magical ingredients. To drink, the “Sunshine Juice”: beet, orange, apple, carrot and ginger (I want a juicer, by the way).

WW Points (a guesstimate): 11

Afternoon snack: Apple

WW Points: 1

Dinner salad: 2 cups romaine lettuce, 1/2 tomato, 1 carrot, 1 pear, 2/3 cup strawberries, 1/4 cup orange and avocado dressing, 1/4 cup raw cashews, 2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds.

WW Points: 11.5

Total WW Points: 33 (of 30) Oops!

  2. I’m glad you discovered FüD. My friend’s mom was just raving about it last night and I almost forgot to tell you about it!
