Hey there, my little lettuce lovers!
Seriously, I can’t get enough of you guys and your unending support in my recovery. I want you all to know that each and every comment brightens my day and makes me that much more positive that I’ll be up and dancing that jig (with can-can kicks and everything) in no time!
As you guys can imagine, the worst pain out of all this is not being able to get in the kitchen and just do my “thang”. But instead of pouting over the fact that it takes
ten years to hobble around and prepare a DECENT meal, I decided to look on the bright side and take this little “break” as a chance to experiment in other ways…
I’ve flirted with intuitive eating in the past, and always thought it was in interesting CONCEPT but this time, I’ve decided to commit to the idea and APPLY it to my life.
I plan on explaining more in tomorrow’s post but for now, I thought I’d share a just little something I’ve noticed over the last few weeks while becoming more “attuned” to my cravings…
I FRICKIN’ LOVE GREEN FOOD! 😉
So I thought, well heck, it’s Wednesday…why not go out with a BANG for the final
green-themed week of Jenn’s super fabulous blog party and post some of my favorites?
Sounds like a plan!
So check out a bit of the GREEN deliciousness I’ve been enjoying lately and then hop, skip, and/or dance a jig on over to Peas & Crayons to check out all the other awesome link ups!
Pea-licious toast with sprouts and almonds, broiled blood orange and runny egg
Roasted coleslaw topped with pickled ginger, avocado, crispy wonton-chips, furikake and drizzled in TJ’s Island Soyaki sauce
Toasted cinnamon raisin English muffin, microwaved spinach egg white
monster “thing”, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice cream cheese
Limited Edition…aka “a piece of you will die once it’s gone” 😥
Spinach with warm spaghetti squash mixed with hummus & nutritional yeast topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions and jarred marinara
Spinach (promise it’s under there) topped with roasted coleslaw, smoked salmon, horseradish mustard, blood orange, and sesame seeds
Reminds me of something Laura would make! 😉
Spinach topped with wild rice and cheese stuffed chicken (a fantastic all-natural score from Sam’s…and proof that sampling works), tomatoes, and steamed asparagus drizzled with mustard/nutritional yeast sauce
Egg white fritatta with coleslaw, sauerkraut (because what goes better with cabbage than MORE CABBAGE?!), cilantro, and hot sauce
Oats with spinach and cinnamon
Spinach topped with roasted coleslaw and tomatoes, topped with a falafel burger (recipe coming EVENTUALLY…this one was thawed from the freezer from a past experiment trying to replicate this burger) and a runny egg
Things I’ve learned from eating these meals:
1. I REALLY have a thing for warm salads.
2. The combination of sweet AND savory will always win me over.
3. Roasted cabbage…OMG, why did it take me so long to do this?!
4. I, apparently, CANNOT LIVE without eggs.
5. And just in case you’re wondering…yes, that falafel burger WAS vegan until I bastardized it! 😆
What’s the last green thing you ate?
What is one food you cannot live without?
