This entire plate was cooked in the microwave. This is how it broke down:
- Turnips, carrot, dried berries and rosemary, 1/4 in water, cooked on high for 20 minutes
- Instant brown rice cooked on high for 7 minutes
- Spinach cooked in water for 1 minute
- Egg whites cooked for 1 minute
- Vegetarian Hot Dog nuked for 45 seconds
Moving on, I have something to tell you about myself: I was raised by a neo-hippie. My mother is all new age and into that rigmarole. This means that I attended many, many hippie potlucks and festivals as a child. (To say this had nothing to do with my love of food would be a lie. [Do note that this is not why I am a vegetarian.]) But the flavors of this hippie food to me are very very fall-like. My favorite spice that I constantly forget is rosemary. Oh my god I love it but unlike cinnamon, I don't douse everything with it so it really is an extra treat.
This morning I arose, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready for fall to come.
I started my morning with 30 minutes of yoga.
If you haven't noticed, I live a few months in the future. All summer my eats have been Autumn inspired so I find it only natural that to start of September, I celebrate winter!
A. MA. ZING.
What this bowl had going for it:
- Cloves, lots of cloves.
Some of the clementines were cooked in:
Ohgod...let me eat that again...
Next up, Lunch:
I would like it to be noted that I do not always eat the whole contents of these boxes. In fact, I rarely will. They don't weigh them, you can take as much as you can stuff in there. So I fill it up every time and stock my mini fridge and fruit bowl...just to be clear (although I totally could eat all that.)
Another prepped sandwich, this time hummus and cheese. Hummus is another hippie food that I love.
I added the cucumber and tomato to the sandwich.
I ate the salad that featured raw zucchini and yellow squash! The salad bar is where they put everything they had too much of so it's always changing, I love it.
I had half of the fruit. The rest of the fruit, broccoli, half the zucchini and squash, onions, and the banana went into my stock.
This afternoon featured a very fall-time snack:
Start with the simple apple...then get a little crazy.
Oh yeah, I went there.
*waits for fall to actually begin*
