Monday morning craving?
A massive bowl of creamy, corny oats.
Quicksand for the banana!
Topped with about 1T coconut butter, Love Grown Foods cocoa goodness, 1/2 banana, 1/2T chocolate chip cookie dough almond butter. If you can believe it, I couldn’t quite finish this bowl! Today was a busy + thoroughly exhausting day. I didn’t eat lunch until 3pm and dinner wasn’t until 9:30!
I managed to squeeze in a mid-day workout and then ran a slew of errands. Since I knew I would be out for awhile, I packed Vega Shake n’ Go, which I’m trying to use up. I have the tropical flavor, and am not a fan, but it’s good in a pinch.
When I finally arrived home, this lunch [not my whole lunch] was put together in snap!
It started with frozen peas, thawed under cold water.
And was quickly whipped into pea dip! I saw this recipe on Kath’s blog recently and it sounded fabulous. She made a lavender salt version with cilantro, but I didn't have either of those on hand. And you know I’m not a cilantro fan!
This is a 5minute recipe. You can use a blender, food processor, magic bullet and even a mini food processor. You can also easily adapt it to suite your taste buds. Here’s what I was feelin’…
Pea Dip [I just like saying that] serves 1-2 adapted from Kath’s Lavender Pea Hummus
- 1c frozen, thawed peas
- 1 clove garlic
- 2T salt + pepper cashew butter [or tahini/almond butter/plain cashew butter/etc.]
- 1/4t salt
- black pepper to taste
- sprinkle of cayenne
- 2T apple cider vinegar [or lemon juice]
- 2c loosely packed spinach
- Thaw peas in a colander. [I ran cool water over them.]
- Throw everything in your blenderizing machine of choice + blend away! Blend until desired consistency is met.
The best thing about this recipe, is that it creates a lot of dip and it’s okay to eat the whole batch!!
I ate 1/4 of it with a spoon, 1/2 of it with lunch and saved the last 1/4 for tomorrow. It’s a great veggie sandwich topper, or just for dipping veggies.
Today, I brought back the rainbow chard. It’s been awhile!
Veggie rollups?? Sure thing! These were incredibly delicious. Bread, what bread? Didn’t miss it at all! Okay, well sometimes.
I stuffed 2 large chard leaves with 1/2 of the pea dip, carrots, tomato, ground flax, salt + pepper.
Even better than I expected!! Love all that crunch!
Better rest up for a full day of house action. So many little things to do!! We’re hoping to get the washer + dryer in the 3rd bedroom in a few days, which means we can finally start unpacking. Getting closer!!
