You may have noticed that I’ve posted a bunch of dessert recipes lately, but I think I’ve reached a point of sweet stuff burn-out. (I’m sure it will just be temporary… my sweet tooth is never gone for long.)
While I do have a few more treat recipes up my sleeve, expect to see some more savory recipes sprinkled in over the next couple of weeks– a couple of which you’ll see sneak peeks of below.
I always like to start my day with something fresh and hydrating, whether it be a green juice, a smoothie, or a piece of fruit. This week, fresh peaches have been my favorite! They are so juicy, I eat them with a knife– slicing off one piece at a time, so the juice doesn’t dribble down my chin and onto my computer.
A little later I’ve been needing something more grounding. A couple eggs scrambled with fresh spinach does the trick.
This is my favorite discovery of the week– a vegan “egg salad” made from chickpeas! My sister-in-law gave me this idea months ago, and I’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner. I ended up eating half the batch directly out of the bowl before spooning it into butter lettuce leaves for a hand-held option. Stay tuned for the recipe soon!
I’m working on some new recipes for a fun little side project, including this vibrant raw rice bowl. This particular bowl was devoured after the photo session was over– which ended abruptly, because my camera died in the middle of it. I’m so sad!
I had my heart set on making some vegetarian tacos using only vegetables as the filling, so I tried my hand at it last night. Unfortunately, the vegetables shrunk down so much with cooking that I didn’t really have enough to serve two people! So, I ended up adding a diced chicken breast to the mix. Next time, I’ll be prepared with more veggies. (They were delicious, though– especially with homemade guacamole!)
I ended the night with a mug of decaf green tea and the first episode of Fargo. Austin and I love catching up on TV shows over the summer, and we’ve made quite a dent in our list so far!
