How was your weekend? We had some nice weather hit the city, which was surreal, inspiring, and probably good for my soul in ways that I have not yet recognized. Seeing the sun shine through my windows and getting out in the fresh air totally made up for that lost hour of sleep. I must admit that my sleep has been less than awesome lately, but I’m kind of over trying to make that work at this point. I do my best, and it is what it is. Feel free to bitch about your sleep problems below. I know I’m not alone.
So I’ve been eating stuff, and I feel like sharing. These are the food trends of February/early March:
1. Salads inspired by this one:
@ Jason’s Deli in College Park, Maryland last month. I haven’t eaten salads on the regular since last summer, but I have been going hard on this fruit/nut combo ever since. Key ingredients are greens [I am partial to baby spinach OR Trader Joe's Organic Power Greens mix (baby kale/baby chard/baby spinach mix - amazing)], apples, raisins, almonds, pecans, and balsamic dressing.
One time I omitted the pecans and added garbanzo beans. Still good.
2. More greens.
There has been a definitive resurgence of vegetable servings in my diet over the last 6 weeks, which feels just as natural as the lack of vegetables did through the months of December and January. It makes me feel like my body is smart and in tune with eating more seasonally, and I like that.
I like to saute my greens in shoyu and a teeny bit of Bragg’s, in case you were interested.
Sautéed spinach with lentils, and more skillet cornbread.
3. Butternut squash fries.
The size of the squashes at the Co-op are cray-zee. I get three plates like this out of one squash:
4. I am still killing the cereal. Boxes last 3 days, tops. Who gets tired of cereal? I never!
Shredded wheat (my all-time favorite).
Trader Joe O’s/Cheerios. Classic.
Trader Joe’s roasted vegetable pizza. My favorite easy dinner (plus you get leftovers for lunch the next day).
On another note,
Kunny. hat. trick.
