Keeping It Raw

February 23, 2010

I felt so good after my morning green smoothie yesterday, that I made another for lunch.


Oh, my gosh, this one was 10 x’s better than my breakfast smoothie because I added cinnamon, vanilla, and 1 TBSP maca powder and topped my bowl with raw macadamia nuts + more cinnamon. So good. To me, maca powder tastes kind of like burnt caramel and pairs perfectly with cinnamon. Yes, I like the taste of maca. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t eat it. As well as tasting delicious, maca powder offers some great health benefits for both men and women. To read more about said benefits, please click here. Oh my gosh, do you know what I love even more than my maca powder? Raw macadamia nuts!!! If only they weren’t so pricey. I bought a tee-tiny bag while restocking my nooch from the bulk bins at Whole Foods. Is it considered stealing to eat straight from the bulk bins???? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Along with my smoothie, I ate some steamed Brussels sprouts…


CD had a business dinner last night, and so guess what I made?


BROCCOLI, welcome home my long lost friend! I took Katie’s advice and roasted some frozen broccoli. Katie, CD couldn’t smell it when he got home…I LOVE YOU! So, I ate an entire bag of Trader Joe’s frozen broccoli roasted with 1/2 TBSP coconut oil, salt, and pepper. I roasted it in my cast iron skillet in a 425ยฐ for 35 or 40 minutes maybe? Along side my broccoli, I channeled my favorite twins with some sauerkraut and 1 serving of cooked millet covered in 1/2 TBSP coconut oil and cinnamon.

Perhaps, it was my dessert that masked the broccoli stench…


Mmm, plain baked sweet potatoes. I threw them in the oven with the broccoli. What a yummy dinner! It’s days like yesterday that make me think, I could totally be a happy vegan, but then I remember the 2 cups of coffee I had with cream…and the fact that I ate 5 eggs the other day…oh, and then there’s my fascination with bacon and cream cheese. Hehe, oh well, ya never know with me. I like to keep y’all guessing. ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. Do you ever hide food from your spouse/significant other? CD is totally used to me doing this, and knows all of my good hiding places. He found the macadamia nuts last night. Don’t eat them all CD. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love your baked sweet potato for dessert! I am always hiding goodies around the house – Jason is always surprised when he finds a bag of dried apricots in the bathroom. I mean, sometimes you work up an appetite blow drying your hair.

    I usually only hide SOME stuff from my hubby, but he knows about it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. February 23, 2010 12:05 pm

    That looks so good!

  4. February 23, 2010 12:05 pm

    My parents probs wouldn’t eat what I do, except my dad would LOVE to get some of my nut butters, lol.
    I’ve never tried maca powder, but it’s health benefits and “caramel” flavor will go duly noted.
    Roasted broccoli is just AMAZING. I need to meal plan for it more

    I hide veggies and greens in food for my toddler. He isn’t too picky but he loves green monsters and I feel good about giving them to him!

  6. February 23, 2010 12:11 pm

    that’s so funny…i used to hide food from my husband in a bad way, so i don’t think that counts…

    sounds like a WONDERFUL dinner…roasting frozen stuff helps with the wallet too!

    I wish Ben would hide food from me! I bought him powdered donuts (because they are his fave) and he keeps them right out in the open on his desk! Hide them please.

    I don’t hide, but I’m stingy with brussel sprouts. I’ll give him 5 and take 43.

    haha oh i hide raw raw almonds from my hubs but he has to hide dark chocolate & nut butters from me or i will devour them in 3 days! Heather, where can one purchase this maca stuff? i’m curious about it and don’t have a WF. do you think Wegman’s might have it or should i just go online?

  9. February 23, 2010 12:31 pm

    Ahhh, so much to say. I will have to try the maca + cinnamon pairing. I bet it tastes like a milkshake ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks so much for the mention. It makes me happy that you appreciated that post, as it took me quite a while to put together!

    Frozen broccoli, eh? Every time I make it, it turns out soggy. Perhaps coconut oil is the secret?

    I’ve been meaning to ask you about your fat intake…if you have ever measured it in grams. Man, I didn’t think I had a “high fat” diet, but according to SparkPeople, I eat lots of fat + fiber! Woops! I bet I’d have a friend in the high-fiber club if you ever tracked ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seriously, how does the average American only get 11 grams/day?

    Never hid food from Matt in the past…though I am thinking about when I re-stock on Balance Bars ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. February 23, 2010 12:38 pm

    thedelicateplace, I’ve seen maca in the supplement section of a lot of health food stores. Not sure about Wegman’s, but you can buy maca from my HEAB store online:

  11. February 23, 2010 12:40 pm

    I love maca, too ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s great in chia pudding. Have you tried Mesquite powder? My mom loves mixing the two – says it tastes like carob-y, chocolate-y caramel ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. February 23, 2010 12:44 pm

    Lara, Yes, thank you so much for the maca post. Whenever I mention it, people always ask me about it. Now, I can just send them the link to your post as I found it very informative.

    My fat intake…I have tracked it on random days. It varies. Usually anywhere from 75 to 120 grams. I eat a lot of’s my macronutrient of choice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have been TOLD by the WFd’s employees here, on more than one occasion, to try anything you would like to taste, right out of the bulk bins..

    But, I take no responsibility if your WFd’s carts you off to shoplifter jail.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    and, that is the greenest green smoothie ever…

  14. February 23, 2010 12:44 pm

    Serena, No, and I have some mesquite that Smoothie Girl Deb gave me. Thanks for the reminder!

  15. February 23, 2010 12:50 pm

    Yum sweet potatoes are totally like dessert! I usually don’t “hide” food, but I’ll put it behind things I know Jacob wouldn’t look behind.

  16. February 23, 2010 1:22 pm

    (Curtsy) You’re welcome for the broccoli tip – glad it worked for you. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m addicted to it – I buy in bulk at Sam’s. Your sweet potatoes inspired me to have sweet potatoes with my grass-fed and finished beef chili last night! Check out my post, and then buy Kelly’s cookbook! It’s a good one.

  17. February 23, 2010 1:56 pm

    That is one green smoothie!
    I always have my boyfriend hide things from me – some foods are just too tempting to have around out in the open.
    I don’t think I hide things from him, but that’s generally because he’s not so interested in any of my treats…

  18. February 23, 2010 2:00 pm

    I am so bad – I always hide things from Bobby. Not always food. One time I hid a bunch of his old yucky t-shirts to see if he would notice (he didn’t for about 6 months). After he did notice I was able to convince him to give them away ๐Ÿ˜€

  19. February 23, 2010 2:08 pm

    I hide my chocolate sometimes, but I’m not sure my hubby would like the unsweetened kind. Still, I’m not taking any chances. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. February 23, 2010 2:21 pm

    I am wanting to try maca powder soo bad! Thanks for the info. I am really wanting some broccoli and millet now! I love that you put cinn. on it. I used to fix it for breakfast with butter, raisins, milk and brown sugar ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I suppose I could replace the sugar with stevia ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. February 23, 2010 2:31 pm

    I want to try maca so badly RIGHT NOW! Haha I feel another “ingredient of the week” coming on.

    It sounds really delicious!

    You crack me up with the bulk bin theivery. Hahaha I always go to the healthfood store after the gym and I’m so hungry I steal a dark chocolate almond cluster. Probably once a week. One day, I’ll actually buy some!
    It’s okay though, because they charge me $3.50/avocado. It evens out in the end. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. February 23, 2010 3:16 pm

    Holy veggies! The green smoothie is SO GREEN! I love green monsters, but definitely need to add a banana to mask the veggie flavor. No hiding of food here, I live alone!!

  24. February 23, 2010 3:19 pm

    lol– I make my hub hide the chocolate from me ๐Ÿ™‚

    I remember one time growing up, we my dad’s secret stash of Oreo’s…busted!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. February 23, 2010 3:19 pm

    I used to always hide the “good” snacks from my brother and sister back in the day! I swear having to share any treats my mom bought while growing up is the reason I eat so fast.. I was always trying to get the most.

  26. February 23, 2010 3:19 pm

  28. February 23, 2010 3:20 pm

    Eggs are definitely enough reason for me not to be a vegan. I just love runs all over whatever else is on my plate. Come to think of it, I think egg yolk is my sauce of choice! Another delicious looking day of food… I don’t know how you do it!

  29. February 23, 2010 3:22 pm

    Ha! I totally hide food from my family when I’m at home. I don’t want my dad eating all my MixMyGranola!

  30. February 23, 2010 3:28 pm

    my bf hides chips from me so I don’t gorge on them . . . and the pizza place that delivers to us also always sends a box of joe louies so I try to hide those from him

  31. February 23, 2010 3:37 pm

    hahah oh Heabs you are way too cute. I have your realizations too, when i’m like – dude, it’s way too easy to become vegan, and then suddenly I remember i can’t have lobster rolls or scallops and oh so amazing taro frozen yogurt from Yogurtland. *sigh* Life as a vegan ain’t easy!!

    I TOTALLY hide my little food things from my bf. He’ll come over to my apartment one day, open my freezer and be like, HOLY CRAP you have SO much stuff in here. When did you get this salmon?!?! And this bucket of almonds?!? Ooooops.

  32. February 23, 2010 3:43 pm

    I have to hide tofu from my husband when I buy it because he’s “morally opposed” to it. In his defense his parents are ranchers in Nebraska so he sees it as a meat substitute. I just like it in my smoothies!

    I also realized that my hubby likes to eat my raw almonds when he’s feeling snacky….I buy them in larger containers now.

  33. February 23, 2010 3:52 pm

    TJ’s frozen broccoli is great because they have it in the organic variety too. I can easily get through half a bag of it but I am impressed you can do the whole thing!

    I don’t have to hide anything because my husband doesn’t like any of the same foods as me! He thinks I eat weird stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. February 23, 2010 3:53 pm

    I just finished my maca infused green smoothie! Same brain waves.

  35. February 23, 2010 4:03 pm

    That green shake looks yummy! I love raw macadamia nuts. The only thing better than that is roasted salted mac nuts!

    Rock on Raw Heabs.

  36. February 23, 2010 4:03 pm

    Your meals look amazing, I love sweet potatoes and butternut squash for desserts, too! I don’t hide anything…actually, my husband SHOULD hide his french vanilla granola from ME!

  37. February 23, 2010 4:04 pm

    OMG that smoothie looks and sounds amazing ๐Ÿ˜‰ The color is so pretty! You know we are HUGE fans of maca! Glad that you enjoyed some sauerkraut ๐Ÿ™‚ We just got broccoli the other day at the store to roast up! Can’t wait!

    That smoothie looks like slighted melted sherbert, yum!

    I hide my bread from my roommates… I’ll buy a loaf and put it in the freezer and when I finally want a slice a month later it’ll all be gone! So I bury it deep under frozen brussel sprouts and chopped spinach ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. February 23, 2010 4:24 pm

    I thought I was the only one that ate entire bags of veggies by myself in one sitting! Thank you for making me feel better about that! HHHMMMM I think I have a bag of broccoli in my freezer! Dinner!

    I used to hide food from Hunni all the time since he would eat my snacks. Now I buy him his own and he’s okay.

  44. February 23, 2010 5:25 pm

    Yeah, eggs are a non-giver-upper for me….so is pretty much most meats ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I like how you said you like to keep up all guessing. And also that if you didn’t like the taste of Maca, you wouldn’t eat it.

    Wise words. Foods should be enjoyed. So eat what tastes good to the palette ๐Ÿ™‚

    (p.s it’s the last night for my LUNA give-away if someone still wants to enter…I’m jealous of the give-away and want to win myself – boooo ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    I hide quality chocolate or healthy snack type food- otherwise he’ll just eat it all and have no appreciation for the “health factor”.. if he was to appreciate it, maybe I’d feel differently, but replacing organic dark chocolate with kit kats just don’t cut it!

  46. February 23, 2010 5:45 pm

    Sarah, Straight from the freezer to the oven. ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. February 23, 2010 5:47 pm

    Adrien, Yes, that’s totally why I hide stuff from CD. He will mindlessly snack on raw macadamia nuts when he’d be just as happy with roasted cashews we buy in bulk from Costco. I just eat a few mac nuts at time and savor every bite.

  48. February 23, 2010 5:48 pm

    Melissa, Yes, you’ve earned your hidden food. ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. February 23, 2010 5:55 pm

    I LOVE roasted broccoli! I just made THE best sweet potatoes tonight. I got the recipe off of KERF’s site.

    Thicker slices, bake 350 for 30 mins, then 400 for 20 minutes. They were like pillows of heaven and better yet my hubs LOVED them. He’s a white potato sort of guy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  50. February 23, 2010 5:55 pm

    Hmmm haha I don’t hide it FROM him but we do hide certain things together so that we don’t eat an entire candy bar orrr certain sweets! lol

    Hey HEAB, don’t know what you’re paying for macadamia nuts but Barry Farms (on Amazon) offers a half lb for 6 bucks, which seems pretty reasonable. I also get the gums from them – cheap!

    When my spousal unit isn’t home, I eat a huge bowl of steamed broccoli! I mainly do it because its super easy, tasty and totally filling.

    I do hide food. According to the man, it shows signs of problems with foods. According to me it shows that sometimes I buy tasty snacks, and I want to be the one who eats them! Sometimes I work later hours than he does and he’ll snack before I come home. I also usually work 1 weekend day. I also have sensitivities to wheat and soy, he has none. He’d be fine with any sort of junk food (which I never buy!) but will pretty much eat anything if its out in the open/cupboard. Right before I read this post I totally hid my Popchips in my office. ๐Ÿ™‚

  54. February 23, 2010 7:11 pm

    Thanks Gina, I think the raw macs are about $8 a pound at Whole Foods. So, I guess it’s not that bad.

  55. February 23, 2010 7:13 pm

    I love maca – i have to say I did have to acquire a taste for it that took about a week. the first time I tried it in my yogurt I thought it was gross, but now i really like it. I think it was the smell that threw me off. I hide veges in food from my husband all the time. If he can’t really tell what it is he doesn’t want to know until after he eats it!

  56. February 23, 2010 7:22 pm

    I love maca. Yum! Do they sell it at Whole Foods?
    And I love sweet potatoes. I used to eat them all the time and stopped when I started eating more pumpkin (in the fall) but I’ve been craving them lately. And seeing you eat them so much makes me want them more. Guess I’ll be stopping by the store tomorrow after work!

  57. February 23, 2010 7:28 pm

    Nicole, Yes, I’ve seen maca in the supplement section at my Whole Foods. However, much cheaper online!!!

  58. February 23, 2010 7:40 pm

    Whoa is that SIAB GREEN.

    Ick. Maca. I don’t know how you eat it.

    If I could eat more of the fun treats I used to love, then yes I would hide stuff– but right now there isn’t anything worth hiding!! But I DO hide ice cream in the freezer so hubby doesn’t eat it all at once. He loooooves Turtle Mt coconut ice cream and I always buy a bunch when they are on sale and then hide them under my frozen hunks of beef and chickens ๐Ÿ™‚ hehehe. He had no idea. Otherwise he’d eat them all in one weekend!!
    Heaby, just wondering, do you buy organic produce? I know you eat tons of veggies (esp the green ones, my fav!) just wondering what you think about organic.
    Love love!

  61. February 23, 2010 9:48 pm

    Eatmovlove, I linked to a post all about maca. You can click on the link to read more about it. I’m very interested in alternative medicine and nutrition, and I read all the research I can. That’s how I find out about supplements like maca.

  62. February 23, 2010 9:51 pm

    Hey Lola. ๐Ÿ™‚ I do not buy all organic…it’s too expensive. I buy it when it’s available and not too pricey. Our grocery budget is already pretty steep…I could only imagine what it would be if we bought all organic. That being said, I do feel strongly about our meats and dairy – only organic and grass fed finished when possible.

  63. February 23, 2010 9:57 pm

    Yep, I always hide goodies. Sometimes I just don’t want to share. Thankfully my boyfriend does not really like sweet stuff and he is not all that into most of the the foods I like but I still like to hide it from him.

  64. February 23, 2010 9:59 pm

    ahaha I love the vegan comment! I was just thinking to myself “omg that looks soooo good! i’ve got to try that dinner sometime because i would totallllly love that.” i’d say you called that one :D. but hey, you know what works for you and that’s what matters. keep doing what you’re doing, girl, because obviously it’s working :).
    have a lovely day!
    p.s. i have no clue how you live without broccoli. i must have it everday or i just don’t feel complete. good thing you have a new method for hiding your love :). oh! that reminds me. do you know of any good steamers?

  65. February 23, 2010 10:01 pm

    Mandiee, I use a steamer pot that came with the set of pots and pans my Dad got me for Christmas. Not sure where he purchased them, but you can get a basic stove-top steamer at Target. I’ve bought several there – usually around $40 or $50.

    Yes, macadamias are heavenly and about the same price as diamonds or emeralds. Sigh.

  71. February 24, 2010 7:31 am

    I haven’t hide to hide food from my husband…yet. He pretty much eats everything I eat, although if I called it vegan, he wouldn’t probably. Which is pretty silly if you ask me, but oh well! I LOVE your comment on why you couldn’t make the switch to 100% vegan. A woman after my own heart..a heart of light colored creamy coffee and cream cheese. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  72. February 24, 2010 7:50 am

    This is maybe a ridiculous question, but do you use any oil or anything when you roast your broccoli? At all? It doesn’t look like it, I’m just scared it’d catch on fire or something if I assume that!

  73. February 24, 2010 7:58 am

    I don’t have a significant other but I have to hide food from my dad.. he eats everything in sight!

  77. February 24, 2010 8:45 am

    I totally hide food from my roommate. I have secret stashes in the pantry so he won’t find stuff ๐Ÿ˜€ But then I feel kinda bad because he always offers me the food that HE has. Ah well.

    I LOVE my morning green breakfast shake. I just started doing it about a month ago and it is such a nice way to start the day. Of course, usually I have some toast or something alongside it, but it’s still nice to get in those greens AND some fluids first thing in the morning.

    Did you thaw the broccoli first?
    I used to hide food back in my compulsive eating days. Parially out of greed and partially out of not wanting him to know I was eating so much (especially sweets) Luckily I kicked that bad habit to the curb.

    so weird…I was just thinking to make a green smoothie. great minds think alike! Mine contained collards, cucumber, avocado and soy milk. I am not really drinking too much dairy lately and I don’t really miss it, but I do worry about enough calcium intake and collards are a good source for it.
    So I tell myself….If you don’t want to drink your milk, then drink your veggies!

    I was going to toss 3 eggs in there but I ended up cooking them and adding some salsa. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I need to go buy some mint. Every time I blend green stuff, especially cucumbers, I want to add mint to it. Super good!

  81. February 24, 2010 9:47 am

    I don’t have to hide anything because my husband would not eat any of my “healthy” stuff, ha ha. But sometimes he hides stuff from me that I wouldn’t “approve” of but I usually still find it by accident, ha ha.

    I love your eats and I love that you always keep us guessing too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Jennifer, Mint…good idea. It would be so refreshing with the cucumbers!

  83. February 24, 2010 1:15 pm

    Matt and I don’t live together so I don’t hide food from him. I have tried to hide food IN his food though. I tried putting Maca in his smoothie the other day and he saw it and asked why I was ruining his dessert. He hates maca. I tell him it is GOOD for him, and he says he will eat it separately but never to ruin his smoothie with it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I โค the flavor of maca. it tastes like kettle corn to me.

    Your eats look soo good! I want to try maca really badly. I hide food sometimes… But more like I hide the junk so he gets it spaced out and not all in one binge! My baby loves chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love my maca. I got mine at Amazon as well! Cheap! I hide my food from my kids sometimes. But mostly no one’s interested in what I eat…so it’s not an issue. And most of the time, my pantry’s a mess (3 kids!) so they don’t know where to find my good stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

    I should definitely switch to frozen broccoli … the other day I took some out of the fridge to roast and the husband came in and immediately said, “What’s that smell? It smells like garbage!” as I sadly gazed at my broccoli.

    Oh well … it still tasted awesome.

    Brussels, broccoli and sweet potatoes oh my! Three of my faves! Mmmm and coconut butter. I may have already gone through 1/4 of my coconut butter jar in one week since getting it. GAH, so good! I’ve been putting it on my spinach and broccoli from the salad bar and microwaving it in my room. It is the perfect after dinner meal.

    I love that you admit hiding food from CD. Joe thinks I am nuts for this. If I don’t hide stuff I’d like to eat later, I come home and it is completely gone – chocolate. I can make my stash last weeks on end. He eats all his in a day or two and then begs me for mine.
