I made a KILLer salad yesterday :)
Notice the mochi on the side, stuffed with leftover chili. Officially obsessed with mochi. I picked up cinnamon raisin mochi at WF and plan to stuff it with something delicious!!!
- Arugula [new favorite..love the peppery bite!]
- 1 clementine
- 1/2 pear
- chopped almonds
- chopped pecans
- sprinkle of shredded parm cheese
I cut 3, 1” x 1” squares of mochi. Puffy + delicious!
This was the best salad I have had in a really long time. I threw together a super simple salad dressing as well. It went something like this:
- 2T apple cider vinegar
- 1T olive oil
- 1T balsamic
- s+p to taste
- 2T cranberry raspberry juice [from WF]
It was tangy and delicious. The dressing was a tad on the runny side but I kind of liked that. I like having all of the lettuce covered but at the same time not have thick dressing all over it. [if that makes sense! :)]
Loooved the dressing.
The salad had such awesome contrast. It was peppery, fruity + nutty, with a nice tang from the dressing. Mmmm Mmmmm Mmmm
Last night we had the leftover chili, as I said in the previous post. I posted twice yesterday, wowow! haha Check out the recipes for veggie chili + cornbread. Super easy + such a crowd pleaser! It was nice having friends over to enjoy the food and help us eat the leftovers. I added another 1c of corn and 1 can of black beans along with a little more veggie stock. So good.
Then we went to help them at their new condo. I painted all night! My arms were really tired from 2 days of the 20min core yoga workout. Down dog always makes my arms super tired!
I already want more of this morning’s bowl of oats!! I need to use up the can of pumpkin I opened yesterday, so another bowl of pumpkin oats were in order.
I made some peppermint creme while my oats were cooking away.
The best pumpkin oats yet!
- 1/2c rolled oats
- rice milk/vanilla almond milk/water
- 1/2 banana
- 2t chia seeds [mixed in for extra thickening]
- vanilla splash
- 1 rounded tsp cinnamon
- shakes of nutmeg + ginger
Topped with: Annie’s Bunnies + TJ’s Pumpkin Butter + WF Organic Pnut Butter + Back to Nature Pumpkin Seed Granola + Almonds
Because 2 scoops are better than ONE! :) I had to use 2 spoons for each of the butters so I decided to use both while eating. They both had residue on them from the pumpkin + pnut butter so I kept switching spoons.
It was quite fun. [n.e.r.d.]
I scarfed this huge bowl and would like some more!! hehe We’re off to help Ann + Kurtz do more work in their new place!
