A helluva vegan day

mouth-watering portobello steaks w/plain spaghetti squash

I want to rescind my previous statements about not having "more" energy on the Crazy Sexy Diet. I do have more energy, it just took some time in the CSD groove to get it.  The important thing, though, was that I didn't have less energy--even without coffee. (Read: BIG deal).

I want to brag about my average day of eating.  The above is spaghetti squash (plain, just baked) with seasoned portobello mushrooms.  They were so good! The rest of the spaghetti squash is on reserve for Aimee's Asian Spaghetti Squash Salad.

Now I was just thinking during my post-yoga shower, I have eaten a lot of vegetables today! Probably 90% even if some of them weren't raw.  While that used to be a big accomplishment, it's just part of my routine on the Crazy Sexy Diet (why can't that diet have a less flamboyant name so I don't have to feel ridiculous every time I say/type/hear it?).

---warning, it gets pretty boring here unless you are my future self reading this blog for inspiration on how to get back on the healthy bandwagon---

Green Juice (cucumber, kale, green apple)
Oatmeal w/walnuts, raspberries and blueberries, chia seeds
Two or three cups of Teechino, French Roast (caffeine-free yummy coffee alternative)

Sprouted wheat tortilla rollup w/romaine, tomatoes, avocado, and two leftover veggie burgers made of black beans, spinach, sunflower seeds, gluten-free flower, carmelized onions, and some spices)

Salad (1/3 head radicchio, 2 large romaine leaves, 2 kale leaves, 1/4 tomato, 1/4 yellow bell pepper, 3 radishes, 1/6 of a red beat, flowers from 1 small stalk of broccoli) topped w/dressing (tahini, juice from one orange, mustard, nutritional yeast, honey and a dash of maple (weird right?), salt and pepper, raw apple cider vinegar, 1 avocado)
1/2 spaghetti squash w/sauteed portobellos

Raw veggies: 13
Cooked veggies: 4
