Naturally, just as I opened up my laptop to write this week’s WIAW post,
my computer crashed. Since I’m typing from a computer with internet that’s
slower than molasses, please bear with me!:) Even though I can’t feature all of
this week’s eats, I’m going to cut it short and list my favorites. As usual, thanks to
Favorite 1.) Taste Nirvana Coconut Water- review to come as soon as I get my laptop back!:) It’s so refreshing, and is the perfect way to start the morning.
Favorite 2.) Homemade Garlic Hummus- Although I’ve mastered almond butter and almondmilk, hummus has been on my “Figure out how to make” list forever! Despite the fact that it seems easy, I’ve discovered there is a whole science to the art of hummus making, with each recipe calling for a little more of this and a little less of that. Adding more tahini made this normally watery hummus amazingly smooth and full of flavor!
Favorite 3.) Blueberry Softserve- Also known as a green smoothie with barely any liquid. I’m so happy I accidentally discovered this bliss when I forgot to add almondmilk to my smoothie the other day!
Favorite 4.) Vegan lasagna I may not know how tofu and spices combine to make a substance oddly similar to ricotta, but I do know that when I cooked this for my family, nobody knew it was vegan!:) Recipe to come
Another favorite of the week has been mangoes. I remember how when I was little, I would always request whoever went grocery shopping to come home with at least 5 mangoes. Mango juice, mango smoothies, mango anything- I wanted it. Although my addiction has been reduced to an obsession, they still are a staple 🙂
…and we can’t forget Pumpkin Pie Oats. I posted this recipe a few days ago, and haven’t been able to stop making it. Not that that is a problem:)
Also, extra thick protein “green” smoothies have been making plenty of appearances. All I do is add a slice or two of avocado, and the results are amazing!
I may officially be 100 years old after writing this post, but it’s worth it for WIAW 🙂 Have an amazing day!
