Some Like it HOT!

This may be my new favorite blog.  Look at this recipe for jicama "porridge" for a warm start to a cold morning.  I'm gonna try it right now with apples rather than jicama because Monday is grocery day and I am down to the basics.  I'll keep ya posted...

Dinner or Crime Scene?

I have been The Naked Chef today.  I made Beet Burgers (yes, I did!) and they were yum (topped with goat cheese and in a lettuce "bun") and Paleo Slaw (cabbage slaw recipe from my friend Sara) for dinner. The girls ATE THE BURGERS!  Can you believe it?  My white kitchen looked like the scene of a brutal crime after juicing those beets but other than that, all is well.

I still love coffee...the social aspect, maybe just the comfort of it being something that hasn't changed through all of this.  There is something to be said about enjoying a cup of coffee in the afternoon or on a "coffee date" versus feeling I NEED to have it to start my day.   I have been having trouble finding coffee shops that offer nut milks (opposed to soy or cow's milk) so resorting to my stand-by skim latte.  St Paul Peeps, any suggestions????

Green Machine...

Without even 'trying' I am off coffee (today)... I just made another Green Lemonade (Kale, cucumber, celery, ginger, and apple) this afternoon and feel super energized. Hmmm, can I keep this up? Do I want to?
So I tried to make a mexican hot cocoa this afternoon with almond milk.  I decided I HATE the taste of almond milk heated.
I made the yummiest smoothie this morning:
1 banana
1 c almond milk
handful of walnuts
1 tsp raw honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Kind of like a cold horchata!
