Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

February Food Lately

Let’s talk about food.

And how I love it.

Like lots of people, I get in cycles of eating the same thing over and over for periods of time.

Then for some strange reason, as if I suffer a brief moment of amnesia, I completely forget about the food and go months, and sometimes even years without eating it.

Weird.

Anyway, today seemed like a good day to capture some of my recent favorites.

Who knows, maybe I won’t forget them for months on end now. smile

I have been absolutely killing my water intake. I can thank the dry winter weather.

I love tea, and always have a Celestial Seasonings multi pack in the house. 

On a whim the other day, I decided to ice their peppermint tea and add a packet of stevia.

There’s no going back.

I’ve been icing everything in their variety pack. I hung out with Layla last week, and she agrees, iced peppermint tea is delicious and refreshing.

She wanted to keep my mug!

I’m also absolutely thrilled about using my fresh herbs from the Aerogarden too!

They’re great in my big old mug.

The latest has been lime-basil.

Basil- lime deliciousness

It makes me feel fancy, like I should be in a big fluffy robe listening to ambient music and awaiting a massage.

Except I’m behind a desk and in uncomfortable heels.

At least the water is tranquil.

Lunches have been pretty cyclical, too.

I’ve been eating my favorite peanut noodle salad, sans noodles and double the slaw.

It’s great with tofu or shrimp, too.

The dressing kills me. It’s me second favorite homemade dressing.

Speaking of dressing, the other lunch I’ve been eating is centered around my most favorite homemade dressing ever.

-1 head, roasted garlic, mashed
-1/4 cup olive oil
-1/4 cup vinegar (I like apple cider or rice)
-1 Tbsp grainy mustard
-Juice of half a lemon

Mix it all up and thank me later.

I keep it in my fridge and it lasts all week and sometimes longer.

Aaaand desserts.

They’ve been happening, and it’s time to confess they haven’t been vegan friendly.

I’ve been enjoying an evening treat of Greek yogurt lately.

I like adding some stevia or honey to plain Greek yogurt, and then I stick it in the freezer for an hour.

It keeps me out of Will’s ice cream, and keeps me sane.

So yeah. Just a few food favorites lately.

Tell me what you’re loving so I can add it to my food cycle. smile
