My current favorites: squash! (and more)

I have been into a few things recently:

  • Squash (kabocha, butternut, and acorn)
  • Steamed broccoli and Brussels sprouts
  • Parmesan
  • Nutritional yeast (nooch!)
  • Maple syrup
  • Corn
  • Spices! – ginger and chili
  • Butter

This bowl was very good:

It was a combo of steamed broccoli, corn, and acorn squash (this was before I bought kabocha). I then topped it with nooch, butter, and maple syrup. It’s awesome, I promise. This bowl (you’ve seen it before) is humongous. It was in the apartment when we moved in and I love it. Bobby thinks it might be from his mom (“it’s kind of Japanese,” he says).

Here is another yummy bowl:

Okay, this one looks weird. It is white rice (another new love), butter, nooch, and possibly maple syrup (can’t remember – I’ve done it many ways).

Nooch tastes good on everything. This week for lunches I’ve been bringing frozen Brussels, corn, and peas and topping them with nooch and butter. It is so so good.

What was not so good…

This is some free sample that I got from Foodbuzz. It’s some Special K bar and it was not tasty.

This weekend I’m going to try to do some work, try to chill out for once, eat some good food, and take some long walks. I’ve been feeling pensive this week (in good and bad ways). I’m also going to this intenSati workshop tomorrow (Bobby’s coming) so that should be fun. (Please come too if you’re around!)

intenSati Workshop: Let Your Voice Lead! (Saturday, January 30th, 3-5pm at Equinox on Park Avenue and 33rd St.). FREE and open to Equinox members and non-members! RSVP to Lindsay at (But probably ok if you just show up!)

What are your weekend plans?

  1. Oh, is that special meeting the Quaker meeting you were telling me about? anyway, I’m glad you found a good place with inspirational people.

    I know you don’t like red meat…but pork isn’t red meat. Have you tried rice stirred with pork bits? So good, with soy sauce.

  2. Yum that bowl looks good! I have a butternut squash I need to cook now b/c I have a craving!

    I just read a tip in my Cooking club magazine about leftover white rice. It says “When you have leftover rice, put it in a plastic container and stir in raisins, coconut, cinnamon, cloves, milk, and a few teaspoons of brown sugar. Keep it in the fridge for a tasty, portable snack.” That reminds me of yours w/ maple syrup in it. I looove rice pudding so I need to try something like that!

  3. I just discovered nutritional yeast flakes today as well! I’ve been reading about it on vegan blogs and wanted to try using it in sauces and gravy. Did not expect to like it as much as I did. I’m soaking some cashew nuts this evening and will make another raw pate of sorts later with it.

  4. I totally agree about the dangers of cereal…seems like some people (my husband) have a bowl and feel satisfied but once I get going I can’t stop…is it the simple carbs or the crunch factor or what?? That butter/nooch/maple combo sounds delicious-I’ll be trying it ASAP!

  5. Maggie,
    Right before I read this, I just finished eating a big bowl of spaghetti squash with nooch, butter, avocado, and a drizzle of tahini. Sounds totally weird I know, but then, so does most of my food. It was so good!

    All your eats look great…’cept that Special K poptart thing. Sorry about that.

    Glad you’re feeling better, and I hope you enjoy your weekend and that’s it’s filled with good Maggie time!!! 🙂

  6. Sorry about your stomach problems! On my blog today I also detail about my current health problems.. I know it’s not fun. Hang in there!

  7. Stomach issues are always a nuisance. Stay warm and perhaps you can make some soup to ease the discomfort. Take care – wish I live in Manhattan so I can attend the event too. But too far 🙁

  8. I need to try nooch! Does it really taste like cheese as people say? I only discovered kabocha and acorn squash this winter and LOVED them both but now can’t find them anywhere 🙁
