LJ’s Raw Fusion Food Diary – January 5th

raspberry yogurt parfait (640x457) What I Ate Saturday

Featuring Chia Berry Parfait and Sun Butter Carob Cups

Morning water and green smoothie.  One of my favorite standards is “Green Fairy Lemonade” — kale, butter lettuce, pineapple, green apple, hunk of ginger, lemon (remove the peel), ice and water — and since this one is so tangy I add a little raw orange blossom honey and stevia.

I don’t adore stevia, but I’m training myself to use it more, thereby reducing the amount of other sweeteners.  TruVia is very mainstream and from what i understand, is not the best choice, so I’ve been experimenting with different brands from the health food store.

Mid-morning: A parfait of Greek style sheep yogurt and raspberry chia jam.  It is super simple to make fresh jam using chia seeds.  Check out the video below to see how easy.  Sometimes I eat a tablespoon or two for sweet cravings.  Lately I am not using agave to sweeten my jam, as mentioned in this video.  Jerusalem artichoke syrup has virtually no glycemic impact, so I use that as my main sweetener with a little coconut nectar or crystals to brighten it up as the artichoke syrup has a bit of a vegetal finish.
