Good morning foodies! This Wednesday I do not have a whole day of food since orientation week plus 20 hours of work are quite time consuming and do often leave no room to make proper pictures of your food. But I still managed to get kind of a recap of what most of my meals will look like due to detoxing on the go – sounds like some weird new movement, doesn’t it ?
Breakfast One: Usually contains a heaping of greens and vitamins. I have a green smoothie or green juice first every morning…
… which can start quite early, thus the bad quality of the picture above.
Breakfas Two: I try to go raw most of the days and choose to have buckwheat porridge or overnight oats or chia pudding. Something like that.

Lunch: Salad, salad and more salad. I go crazy with mixes and toppings, so I do not get bored easily. Later, for example, I will have a mixed green salad with tomatoes and beet, topped of with an amazing green godess dressing.

Dinner: Sadly I do not have one single picture here. I guess it’s because I got home so hungry every day, that I did not even bother to think about taking pictures. But you are save to say – what’s the salad for my lunch is the soup for my dinner. Always embracing a lot of veggies and than I add tofu or tempeh or brown rice, whatever I fancy and do have at hand.
Snacks: During the day I mostly sticked with fruit. They kill the little hunger and give you a little energy boost. But then Amanda posted this amazing recipe for Chocolate Pumpkin Bread and I just HAD to make it. Guess what convinced me? The thought of that: “…this bread is definitely worth making if you’re looking for a comforting Fall treat to enjoy alongside a steaming cup of hot chocolate/coffee/tea. Mmm yes…” Thanks, Amanda . That was exactly what I did yesterday.
I altered the recipe a little bit:
- flour: 1/2 cup rye, 1/2 cup whole wheat, 1/2 cup brown rice
- just 3/4 cup of pumpkin, I added 1/4 cup of apple sauce
- instead of greek yoghurt I used low fat cream cheese (which I still had left from birthday baking for my brother)
- I used honey instead of maple syrup and just 1/4 cup of brown sugar, but added 1 tsp of molasses
- I used a flax-egg
- and I added 1 small shredded carrot & 1 tbsp raisins, but used just 1 or 2 tbsp of chocolate chips
As you can see – even with all of my alterations – it came out just fine. It looks a bit doughy and crumbly in the picture above, since I just could not wait to take the first bite and did not let it cool out before. Today I brought a slice for breakfast number two and it looks perfectly smooth and soft and dense, just like Amandas.
Hope you all have a great Wednesday!
What is your favorite fall treat? And what do you bring to university/work/school, which is easy to prepare and you just have to grab in the morning?
