Happy Thursday! Almost the weekend, how awesome is that!?
I started off with a much needed Green Monster
Almond milk, 3 large handfuls of spinach, a kiwi, frozen peaches and flax meal. My go-to recipe is the best.
Then I started cleaning out my fridge and noticed a lovely bunch of beets that needed attention. I haven’t had roasted beets in such a long time so in the oven they went!
Step one – wash and trim (leave peel on)
Step 2 – Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper
Step 3 – Wrap in foil and roast in a 375 degree oven for an hour
They come out aromatic, soft and delicious. Let cool for a bit and peel. Eat as a side, in a salad or in soup. Beets are wonderful!
I made a simple salad with my beets:
Spring mix, cucumber, beets, EVOO and salt & pepper.
I also had another wrap:
Wraps are the best way to eat left over food that has been in the fridge for a while. Ingredients included: hummus, bean burger, broccoli, sweet potato, red onion, avocado, cilantro and hot sauce.
So. Full. Now.
I gave J some frozen berries this morning for breakfast and he turned into a “clown”!
Clowns really scare the crap out of me but he was pretty cute. =)
Seattle’s VegFest is approaching soon and I am so excited to attend! It is being held on April 10th and 11th, and there are few seminars I would like to attend. Just look at the list of speakers AND cooking demonstrations. And plenty of samples. 😉
I am also excited to see Sarah Taylor both speaking and signing her book.
If you are planning on attending let me know – it would be a great time to have a blog meet up! How fun would that be!?
