Hey guys! Happy humpday! Thanks so much for the name suggestions for Megan’s blog!!!!!!!!!! They were witty, hilarious and so much fun to read. Ya’ll are awesome We have it narrowed down to a few and will let you know when she gets her blog up and running!
So ast night, I taught spin and had to rush to the wives’ coffee which was a lot of fun. There wasn’t too much food I could eat there, so I had a little melon and grapes and came home chewing my arm off starving.
So I broke into the freezer for a very sacred meal:
Those aren’t any tamalers…. those are homemade Tucson tamales. We brought them back and honestly, I felt so selfish eating two because we only have four left now, but what can I say, I was really, really hungry
This morning, I had an almost-repeat of yesterday’s bfast:
Eggplant bacon (recipe is in Everyday Raw)
Oat groats soaked overnight with a smashed banana and 1/2 macaroon (aka Coconut Cream Pie) Larabar
So filling and delicious:
I walked the puppies and then stopped at the commiscary for groceries for Thursday night’s girls night
I SAW THE PILOT FLYING TODAY. Not gonna lie, it scared the bejeezus outta me. I knew he was flying most of the morning and he told me he was going to be the 3rd jet in a 4-ship (4 jets). Driving onto base, I saw the plane he flies up in the air. The first one flew past, then the second one, and then THE THIRD ONE which I know was my husband. It shook me up a little bit!!!! It’s funny –a lot of the wives feel the same way- because we all know what our husbands do, but actually seeing them up in the air is a bizarre feeling. I thought I was going to be tossing oat groats on the side of the road, if you know what I mean.
So after all of that, I came home and had a piece of raw cheddar before starting to clean the casa:
I also peeled a jicama root and put in the food processor to make “rice” like Megan brought over the other day.
It TOTALLY looks like rice and I love the crunchy texture and slightly sweet taste. I’m a fan and am going to have a lot of fun experimenting with the “rice”.
Based of an Ani Phyo recipe for her Love the Chicks Pate, I made a cheesy paste to have for lunch.
I used 1/4 cup raw cashews, tumeric, chili powder, sea salt, 1/2 tbs of nutritional yeast and 1 tbs of water.
I spread the pate on some collard leaves and topped it with orange bell pepper and swiss chard from our little garden:
And rolled it all up:
Next, I seasoned up 1/3 of the plain jicama “rice” (which was a LOT) with bell pepper, grape tomatoes, lemon juice, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne, sea salt and cilantro.
What a delicious, and surprisingly filling lonchi:
I’m going to get back to cleaning the casa since Megan and I are going to Jacksonville tomorrow for Bikram and shopping, then teaching spin and Zumba and feasting at Indian.
Have a happy humpday!
