Trying new things...

So first let me apologize because I totally spazzed out and only photographed one of my meals.  I literally just forgot to photograph the others. Sorry!

This morning I work up at the crack of dawn and started "dehydrating" my buckwheat crispies from Ani Phyo's books.  I don't have a dehydrator so I had to use my oven and keep turning it on and off to keep the temp low but I feel like these are definitely heated too high but I'm over it.  I just tried a small batch for now  and when I get a dehydrator I'm gonna go crazy!

I did a little running on my trampoline and let me tell you, I'm sore from yesterday! This little break totally threw me off.  We did cardio and abs yesterday and my abs are killing me.  All a good thing though.

Here are the eats...

Pre-Breakfast: Watermelon to hold myself over until my buckwheat crispies were dehydrated.

Breakfast: Buckwheat crispies with banana, raisins, coconut, cinnamon and almond milk.  They were pretty good but I'm glad I put in all of these add-ins to sweeten everything up.

Lunch: Stir fry of broccoli, baby bok choy, yellow and green squash and mushrooms.

Mid afternoon: Iced soy latte

Dinner: salad

That's all folks. Long work day tomorrow, try to update when I get home :)


  1. I got raw buckwheat groats from the Whole Foods bulk section. You soak em overnight then dehydrate the hell out of em and they turn into a Rice Crispie-esque raw cereal.

  2. You're pulling that FF thing -- posting two pics of the same thing to make the post look more substantial. Don't worry, I won't tell anyone.

  3. I need to try making some buckwehat crsipies. I don't have a dehydrator either...yet at least. I'm saving up for one. I'm wanting to eat more raw foods too.

  4. Shen - ;X And here I thought I was just giving nice alternate views!

    Michelle - I'm definitely going to invest in an inexpensive one first to see how much I use it. If I get a lot of use out of it I'll prob go for a higher quality one. The crispies were pretty good but you definitely need to add stuff for flavor.
