I hope you are having a great weekend. It certainly has been steamy down here in South Carolina, and I have been able to get down to the beach the last few days. The big question is: What to eat at the beach??
You don’t want to eat the wrong foods, for obvious reasons. The easiest way to ruin a beach day might just be to eat something that bloats you out and then you feel fat and huge. Just a terrible feeling! On the other hand, being in the sun, body surfing in the ocean, playing frisbee and any other fun beach activities will make you hungry. So you will want to eat something.
Here’s what I like to do: I bring a whole pitcher of the Ultimate Green Smoothie down to the beach that I made first thing in the morning. That way it is ice cold. Of course the ideal is the situation I am in here- where the beach is right in front of my villa. It allows me to run back and forth between the fridge and the beach. I brought down the Green Smoothie when I got hungry and went through the whole container first (between a few people).
Then I’ll go swimming, etc. for a while. When I get hungry again, I like to have fruit next. If I am pretty hungry, I like to have fruit with the fatty fruit of avocado. Avocado is so filling with good beauty fat, fiber and minerals. Avocado with fruit is just about the perfect beach food, besides young coconuts. Here I am having my Papaya Enzyme Salad. For the RECIPE CLICK HERE.
What I DON’T want to eat is salty, processed foods like potato chips, Sun chips or the dreaded Soy Chips (!). Of course we avoid at all costs the french fries and club sandwiches which might also be readily available beachfront! Focus on how refreshing and delicious your fresh plant-based smoothies and fruit/salads are, and one of my other favorite recipes is my taco salad recipe with avocado!
For dinner at the beach, I’m pretty hungry. Here I made dinner to eat out on the porch. My Raw Cauliflower “Mashed” Potatoes are featured to the left on the plate. For the RECIPE CLICK HERE.
I know- I can be a big dork sometimes. 🙂
Take care of yourself!
With Lots of Love, Kimberly
That dinner you made is beautiful and looks delicious. What else did you make besides the raw cauliflower mashed potatoes?
wondering the same thing! what are the other foods on the plate??
Your food looks wonderful! You are truly an inspiration to the rest of us. Plus I’m living vicariously through you, I am craving the ocean shoreline right now!
What are the other two items next to the cauliflower mashed potatoes, and would you please share the recipes with us?
well u are my inspiration, i want to become a nutritionist, personal trainer, yoga instructer, or something of that nature. i am still in highschool but hopefully gonna graduate 2 years early, and then i wanna do that, so i want to know if u could tell me exactly wat u did, like, what schools, what certificates, etc. please reply. thanks
Mr. Green Smoothie ROCKZ!!!!
I was just wondering what that was next to the mashed potatoes with the greens on it? Looks delish!
Have a great one!
Yum! I love the idea of avocados in a fruit salad. Do you squeeze lime juice on the papayas and avocados, or do you cut up the lime and include in the salad? Thank you, Kimberly, and enjoy the rest of your trip.
Yes, I do squeeze lime juice. Sometimes I even put a splash of Stevia. I’ve been really cutting out agave.
Check out the recipe link!
Great tips! Love Mr. Green Smoothie! Have fun in the sun!!
Yay Lauren!!Glad you get my humor. 🙂
This is great. When I am surfing I always feel really hungry and don’t know what to eat, because, as you just said, when we eat some kind of foods we end up feeling a little fat, like with a big stomach or belly and this is terrible if you want to get back in the water and enjoy the end of the sunny day… Thank you!
Oh please ‘dish’ on the recipe’s for the other goodies on that gorgeous plate! Love your blog and all the ‘goodness’ you share – thank you so much!
I love using your recipes even though I don’t have a completely veggie/vegan/raw diet yet. What are the other foods you made along with the cauliflower?
I made the Papaya and Avo salad yesterday. I had a full day and made it in advance and took it with me. It was delicious! I’m definitely making this on a weekly basis.
Hi, you demonstrate some valid issues and your blog is interesting.
I couldn’t find the Papaya Enzyme Salad. Where is it, please. Thanks!
i just tried and couldn’t find it either (i was going to “pin” it lol), but it’s in her book…if i’m not mistaken it’s just papaya, avocado, and fresh lime juice. it was actually the first recipe of hers i made. so good 🙂
How much papaya and avocado?
Your book and blog are a true inspiration for me.
Right now I’m going through a detox (the not so nice part) and reading your posts is keeping me going.
I have an allergy to cabbage and was grateful to see that you have a Papaya Enzyme Salad! Yay! However when I click on the link it takes me to a 404 Page. I also tried searching your blog and book for it and can’t seem to find it. Please can you post another link or include it in your next newsletter.
Also, can you please advise what other vegetable I could you in place of cabbage to make the Enzyme and Probiotic Salad and would I use the same other ingredients and follow the same steps?
Thanks a mil for your wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm. You’re truly inspirational!
