my new "hobby"

First, let me start by saying, blogging from bed should be a no-no! Oh well...

Here is a look at my recent adventures in the kitchen, inspired by my favorite bloggers:

This is Crazy For Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

I added some OJ to make it more juicy. The flavor was great, but it was a little too chunky for me since I don't have a juicer or a strainer...

This was my really fun post-hour and fifteen minute workout dinner. Slice of whole wheat bread with cashew nut butter, sliced banana and a drizzle of honey with a bowl of nonfat plain yogurt topped with blueberries, goji berries, walnuts and another drizzle of honey. Also, a coconut water for electrolytes/hydration. This isn't my favorite coconut far I like the Zico Mango the best!!

I grew this little guy ALL BY MYSELF! He did just fine growing up in the city! I picked him last night with Z and let him hang out on the counter (the jalapeno, not Z). He was later chopped up with some of my city balcony grown cilantro, a tomato, half an onion, half a lime and salt/pepper for some impromptu pico de gallo...SO TASTY. For some protein, I cooked up an egg white and threw that pico right on top (Thanks Fitnessista!).

I bought a fresh baguette at the farmer's market near work yesterday. Z and I ate some with dinner, froze half of it, and still had about 1/4 of the bread left, so I decided to make a little modified Spanish/Italian Panzanella. I made garlic-lemon vinaigrette with things I had lying around. Soaked the bread for 10 minutes in the vinaigrette and then added an organic cucumber from YES! and the rest of my onion. It looked like it needed more veggies, so I threw the rest of my pico de gallo in there. It looks and smells fantastic. After marinating overnight, it should make a super tasty lunch tomorrow!

I get to have a sleepover tomorrow. I always look forward to those :) I'm so in love...

time for sleep.

don't let the bed blogs bite. hehe
