what I ate today // rheumatoid flare-up #2

Today is a day of eating trying to be healthy but not having the energy to make anything crazy.

Breakfast: Smoothie

  • 1 1/2 large bananas
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 cup cashew milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • lots of cinnamon

My main tip for super creamy and smooth smoothies is to blend the spinach with the milk and water before adding the bananas or anything else you want to add. This prevents chunks of spinach and makes the smoothie nice and creamy.

Snack before work:

Rice bowl with spinach, avocado sauce, and two sheets of nori on the side. I would usually use an avocado and not a store-bought sauce but the avocado I had went bad.

Lunch:

More rice with lots of veggies (broccoli, peppers, spinach, mushrooms, and onions) topped with sesame seeds with a peanut butter and sriracha sauce.

We went grocery shopping when I got off worked and picked up some food for dinner. I snacked on some black bean Harvest Snaps on the car ride home.

Dinner:

We didn’t get home until 10:30pm so we just picked up some frozen meals for dinner. I tried the Morning Star soba noodle veggie bowl, which honestly wasn’t that great. We tried their vegan ribs the other day and those were pretty good though.

And that’s everything I ate that day. It got lazy towards the end, but all-in-all was alright for how bad I felt. I like having smoothies and rice bowls with lots of veggies on these kinds of days because they make my body feel better.
