Posts Tagged ‘GREENS!’

 

Psst…Hey you. Yes You! Are you there? I asked for your questions in my last post and I’ve answered them all in the comments (there wasn’t enough for a separate post). Thanks so much you guys,  that was quite a growth experience for me. (clicky) To anyone else, feel free to ask me anything you want, anytime.

Moving on …Sorry to bore you but duty calls. I’m on a mission, remember?)

Here are some things I’ve ate, thinks I’ve thunk, happenings that happened and random details about me.

I had this miso soup on a particularly stressful day. Miso really is a wonder food and soup in a cup warms the soul.

Miso Soup with Brussels and Scallions

“I like to eat, eat, eat…apples and bananas.” Ever sing that song as a kid?

Warmed, sweetened apples and bananas with cinnamon and plain yogurt.

After I ate this I thought, “I need more banana in my life.”

Then I giggled cause, that’s what she said.

(cause it leaves a signature on my breath).

I am really trying to mix up my diet but some things haven’t changed.

Cod Fillet, Asparagus, Zucchini, Onion and Thyme. Again.

Egg Whites and Spinach for brekkie at home. Again.

radish and kaleKale, Radish, Gomasio and Aminos.

Gomasio is sesame seeds and sea salt, Liquid Aminos taste like a mapley soy sauce. Both are HUGE nutrition boosts.

persimmon fail

I cut into my Persimmon only to realize that I accidently picked up a Hachiya rather than a Fuyu. FYI – you have to wait until a Hachiya is superdy-duper squish squash ripe or you’ll gag and have pucker face. You can eat Fuyu straight up (and you should.) This went in the trash after I captured its beautiful butterfly likeness.

You know what else is bitter? Mustard greens…unless you cook them just right.IMG_0020Mustard Greens sautéed in vegetable broth with scallions and nooch, natch.

(nooch, natch. nooch, natch.  Cheap thrills.)

I have NO idea how to get a perfect nut-butter drizzle. I’m not bitter, though. Not with this consolation prize.

Who needs a drizzle when you can glop-izzle?   

Shoo…Sumthin’ bout thems pears and almond butter… Law, that be for my good. Ah’ll tale ya wha. Yess’um.”

I’m reading the book, The Help. Can you tell? I love authors who can capture dialect or invent their own (Burgess’s Clockwork Orange, Roald Dahl).

  • Can you drizzle nut butter? Have you read “The Help?” Ever had the wrong kind of persimmon?
  • Lastly, Do you need more banana in your life? *pillsburydoughboygiggle*
