My “Real Foods” Diary (Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011)

Today is October 29, 2011. By reader request, I logged all of my food today so I can show you an example of the foods I might eat in a typical day as part of my “additive-free,” REAL FOODS lifestyle. Today was a little unusual because we ate a really late breakfast and I took an afternoon nap; so this is a bit less food than I eat in an average day, I suppose. No worries, I’ll blog about other days in the future, too, to give you a better idea 🙂 (Click any pictures to enlarge!)

Breakfast: Eggs fried in coconut oil; sweet potatoes sauteed in coconut oil and seasoned with Chipotle powder and salt; pineapple

Snack: Pineapple

Lunch: Salad with grilled chicken breast, red peppers and homemade Italian Dressing

Snack: none (took a nap!)

Dinner: Leftover chili, celery

Evening snack: Pistachios, cantaloupe

Bedtime snack: banana

Makes 1-2 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice blend* (we use Frontier brand)
  • Chopped nuts, optional

 DIRECTIONS:

  • Cut bananas into thick slices and place into food processor
  • Process on high 15-30 seconds until slices are diced up
  • Stop processor and scrape sides
  • Sprinkle in pumpkin pie spice blend
  • Process on high until mixture fully combines and forms one large mass (ball).
  • Transfer to bowls and top with chopped nuts. Enjoy!

*If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice blend, just make your own combo of cinnamon and nutmeg with a little powdered ginger and cloves. Or just cinnamon and nutmeg should work fine, too, if you want to keep it simple.
