I’ve been enjoying a lot of this (simple protein oat bran – soy protein powder):
Many new meals…
A lot of this (celery + peanut butter + various dried fruit):
And almost too much of this (fresh fruit):
This was dinner the other night – organic, grass-fed beef from Trader Joe’s (85/15, not so lean); tomatoes; cabbage; asparagus; garlic stems (Asian grocery store, frozen); a ton of spices; sauces (teriyaki, soy)… I think that was it? If you want a recipe I’d be happy to try to come up with something. It tasted like chili.
I had it with parmesan! Bobby had his over rice with some cheddar.
P.S. Justine gave me this lovely award – the Honest Award 🙂
I’m supposed to list 10 things about myself and pass it on – the 10 things might happen in the next post, and I’m passing it on to all of my bloggies 🙂 If you haven’t been tagged yet, you’re it!
I’ve seen this on a lot of blogs but namely HEABS and Gena are my inspirations here. I have made a whole bunch of variations on this, but this is the basic recipe. I’ll show variations below.
Massaged Kale Salad
Ingredients (serves 2-3, or 1 salad girl)
- 1 bunch of kale
- 3 tablespoons olive oil (I know; it’s a lot – you don’t need this much though)
- 1/2 avocado
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- splash of balsamic vinegar
- chili powder, salt, pepper to taste
- 1 shredded carrot
- Remove the kale from the stems and rip it into pieces. Pour on the oil and add the avocado and massage them all together.
- Add the spices, vinegar, lemon juice, carrot, and mix some more. Serve!
Some variations – any kind of shredded veggie will do in place of carrot. I’m trying to cut down on my orange food consumption because I got the dreaded orange tint. Oh, well. Haven’t had kabocha in probably 2-3 weeks now, but I probably still eat enough carrots to still be orange. You definitely don’t have to use as much olive oil; I change it up depending on my mood. If I use more, I might not finish the whole salad in one sitting. More oil does make it really delicious though.
I had it one night with some pork and a whole hunk of sauerkraut.
I’m trying to eat more (organic, free-range) meat for various reasons, and this meal was a major success. Be back soon!
I wanted to share this delicious raw well-combined snack/dessert…
Ingredients (serves just 1)
- 1 banana
- 1/2 small-ish avocado
- 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 1-2 teaspoons raw honey
Mash everything witha fork, or if you want to be snazzy use a blender/food processor. Enjoy.
I will be back soon with somewhat of an update, and hope to be blogging more regularly again soon as well. Here’s to a great new week!
