This is a space for me to capture my crazy and clean food creations that scare the hell out of coworkers.
Chopped celery, chopped carrot, chopped apple, chunks of avocado, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries. Drizzle sesame seed oil. Splash of soy sauce. Squeeze juice of an orange in salad. Sprinkle garlic, ginger, and dash of turmeric. Pinch of wasabi. Lightly toss. Walah! Yummy and fresh. Tasty and replenishing to eat after a great workout or running session!
Cook multi-colored quinoa and cool. Toss in chopped carrot, chopped apple, chopped ginger root, fresh mint, fresh cilantro, raisins, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Serve cold. Addictive and super-yummiez after one day when marinates.
Throw dried lentils in water. Boil. Simmer. Separately, saute an onion in coconut oil, garam masala, garlic and ginger. Drain and toss lentils in onions. Take off heat. Drizzle balsamic vinegar on top. Eat. Weird but yum. Confusion and confucius for your tongue.
Mince 1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger root (peel first), add to hot water in cup. squeeze half a lemon. Ahhhh detoxifica-shun!
I was looking forward to a night of detox with various herbal teas after way too much weekend indulgence.
Around 10 p.m. when my relaxation time was to commence, it dawned on me that I had no tea in my house! Oh me oh my dearie me! Luckily, I happened to have ginger root and a fresh lemon handy. This is the first time I have made/tried this. I like eet a lotz. I’m all getting down with my zen self now while drinking this.
My coworkers find my food perplexing, insane and entertaining to make fun of on a daily basis. Other times they are in awe and ask where i got my salad that has all the colors of the rainbow with rays of sunlight shooting out. Umm…you just saw me preparing it in the break room. Now begone. No, really, if anyone asks me about my food I will chase them down with a fork and try and force feed the nourishing goodness to them. …Unless I’m hangry (hungry = angry = hangry)—then I use the fork as a weapon to keep them away from my food.
I figured if my coworkers are that easily entertained the six times a day I eat at work, my food may be blog worthy. But the true impetus for me creating this blog is for me to keep track of the crazy things I come up with so I can remember to make them again.
I think some of the weird combos I come up with may be my body saying, “hayyyeee there…Ima be craving some o’ dat flavo-flavonoid…and some iron yo…and yes, ima need you to get all probiotical wid your bad self.” So then I go like a zombie to the breakroom kitchen (yes I drag my foot and say brainz down the hall of my office..hmm..maybe this is why my coworkers are disturbed?) and make a yogurt, apple, raisin concoction. Wow..I spelled concoction right the first time because it isn’t underlined in red.
Bon Apa Tay tay! (don’t ask.)
