...peas porridge cold, lol, blah blah blah! It's hard with Eat To Live to get over the sameness of the food sometimes. I love all the fresh fruit and veg, but the entrees stump me. A lot of salad and soup, a lot of cooked veggies. None of all that delicious middle ground like bread, crackers, pasta, rice...gah! I am feeling so well and energetic, though, that I'm not defecting! I also had a "cheat night" last night that involved peanut butter cookies and wine. It was awesome and I woke up feeling super motivated again. I guess getting a break every so often really does amp up a fairly stringent health plan.
Here's a yummy, salt-free soup I made by chopping veggies and dumping in several freezer bags of leftover stuff. Truly an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink dish. I used Bragg's nutritional yeast on top to give it a little extra seasoning.
For eating my raw veggies, I made up a batch of homemade hummus- that's one healthy food I never get tired of! I cooked the garbanzos with kombu for a little natural salt and possibly de-gassing! I used raw tahini that I made myself (thrifty/creative peeps: it is SO easy to make tahini, and raw is even easier. The prices of raw tahini are crazy, so I am jazzed. Raw is just made without the cooking step. See my old post here). I threw in Bragg's Sea Kelp seasoning for zest! I also added a bunch of fresh cilantro while processing it. This is definitely one of my favorite hummus creations so far.
And for fun, here's the adorable bento box I bought at a garage sale. It has all sorts of compartments and is so cute!
