What I Ate Wednesday: Getting Physical

Best Blogger Tips My five year-old son had his pre-kindergarten physical this week.

He was really excited.  He never goes to the doctor.

In fact, he has only been to the doctor twice in the past three years.  He never gets sick.

He had a full CBC blood draw, urinalysis, and physical exam.  Everything was perfect!  He weighed in at 40.6 lbs and he now measures 43 inches tall.  He has also never eaten meat in his life, he eats very little processed food, and consumes organic dairy and eggs several times a week.

For more about Matthew's diet, here are a few WIAW posts I wrote about what he eats:

Now, what I ate:

I started my day with organic basmati brown rice with coconut milk, raisins, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

For lunch, I ate a simple salad with some lettuce from my friend's garden, topped with a few sweetened dried cranberries and a dressing I made with Dijon mustard, rice vinegar, and a little honey from a local beekeeper.  I also ate an Annie Chun's Udon noodle soup bowl.

Late in the afternoon, I made sweet cherry "ice cream" since it was 96F outside today.  I used a bag of frozen sweet cherries and 3/4 a cup of Silk original almond milk, then blended it in my Vitamix.

For our supper, I made Spicy Quinoa with Black Beans and Veggies.  I used mine to top my salad.  Check back for my recipe!

I ate all of this for 1300 calories and over 30 grams of fiber.

  1. The quinoa looks delicious! As does the breakfast rice-I will have to try it:)

    1. Thanks! You could add sugar to the rice for breakfast, but I didn't think it needed it.

  2. Yum! You're "ice cream" looks so good! Did you just blend it up and then scoop it out from there or do you have an ice cream maker? I've got a Vitamix too, but I can never get my "ice cream" to look that good! It looks like you bought it from a store. ( :

    1. I just used my Vitamix. I used an ice cream scoop for the pictures, but I just dump it in a bowl and it isn't nearly as pretty. ; )
