What I Ate Wednesday #9

What starts with W? 
Wednesday starts with W.
What other words start with W?
Oh, who cares about the other things.
Let's just focus on What I Ate Wednesday.
Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats

Thank you and hearts to the lovely miss Jenn for this warm-hearted idea..a way for us bloggers to connect and share what we ate.

Oh, what a wonderful world we live in!

Upon rising, I started my day with 32 ounces of fresh distilled water (not pictured). Distilled Water is boiled, and has been proven effective at removing harmful wastes and cleansing the system of any impurities. Source


After sending "The Taste Tester" off to school, I blended together some of my favorite whole foods to get instant nutrients into my body. I desperately need fresh fruits and dark leafy green vegetables everyday or my body will not function at 100%.

Today's Warrior Blend Smoothie [banana, spinach, berries, raw pumpkin an sunflower seeds, hemp seed oil, maca powder, super green food powder, fresh apple juice, almond butter, chia seeds, hemp seeds, water]HARDCORE SUPERHERO FUEL! Lunch today was a big, bright, and beautiful Citrus Salad [arugula, oranges, grapefruit, mint leaves, onions, sesame seeds and slivered almonds] dressed up with an agave, lime, liquid aminos, sea salt, red pepper flakes dressing. Perfect balance of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy.


I was feeling a little sexy today and since Valentines Day is month's away, I decided to make some of these little libido-boosting SEXY BALLS. Topped each one with an extra almond. These babies are Uh-may-zzzzing!!


I can't eat wheat or gluten, and one thing I really miss is pasta. Zucchini pasta is the next-best-thing. HOLY COW! This stuff is fantastico! I peeled a few fresh zucchinis for the "noodles", then topped it off with a Blolgnese Hemp Parma Sauce made from tomatoes, red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, oregano, black olives, lemon, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne, and fresh basil. My mouth still waters when I think about this meal! SO YUMMY FOR MY TUMMY!
