I am not afraid of gluten, I love a good old sammie every now and then. This is an excellent example I found at Revival Market in the Heights, Houston (http://revivalmarket.com) Marinated roasted beets, arugula, almond pesto, whole wheat sandwich: YUM! Combined with a soy latte makes me a happy camper!
My puppy BIlly and i getting ready to hit the trails this morning. She turns out to be the best running mate! Super fast, and never stumbles, unlike me.
I just signed up for the Mid Mountain marathon in Utah – Park City in September. Anyone every done this one? Check out the elevation profile, haha, this will be a monster! But regardless, i feel totally inspired by Scott Jurek’s book EAT & RUN.
HAve a great day!
When summer comes around and it’s hot & sticky, I like to eat light foods and yes, grill! Where I started off couple years ago with big juicy (delicious!) steaks (and yes they are bigger and better in Texas), now it’s mostly V E G G I E S. And I’m loving it. All of it 🙂 This week some veggie inspiration for a nice warm summer dinner (preferably at a pool or beach of course).
Chop up all the veggies you can find and put them on a screwer, wrap them up in aluminum foil or just throw them on the grill. YUM! Season your veggies with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt and some cumin for great flavors. I chopped up some collard greens, green squash, green bell pepper, mushrooms, onion.
Great as a side dish and provides good substance to your meal: Israeli couscous. After preparing the couscous, I added cumin, ground cilantro, salt, garlic, splash of lemon juice & red pepper to spice it up a bit. Then added some tomato, avocado, fresh cilantro cucumber. I could eat this all day.
The cauliflower is oven roasted (haven’t actually tried to grill that yet). Chop up a good size cauliflower and sprinkle it with some a mix of olive oil, garlic, lemon and whole cumin seeds. Roast it for about 25 minutes @375 F and add some sea salt and ground cumin. Done.
ENJOY!! xo be
Every other week i blog for the website ” model-list ID”. This weeks blog entry was a food journal of just another delicious veggie day.
Breakfast: I love to start the day with a fresh juice! Every day I make a different one with whatever I can find in the fridge. Not being picky can lead to interesting results 🙂 . If I have a busy morning I sometimes like a sandwich too. Hummus, spinach, avocado is one of my fav’s.
Lunch: This picture is taken at a great little place here in Houston called “Green Seed Vegan”. Lots of raw and vegan specials. Really really good. I had a green veggie smoothie and some nori. YUM!
Dinner: Lentil salad! So easy to make, really delicious and nutritious! I used organic french green lentils and lots of colorful sautéd veggies (sweet potato, broccoli, spinach, onion and artichoke) with garlic and some olive oil. Then to give it a nice fresh bite add some raw green onion. Use ground cumin, cinnamon & splash of lime to give it a nice flavor.
Enjoy! xo Be
I love couscous: easy to prepare, it has a nice bite to it and fills you up too. For this salad i used whole wheat couscous, made with cumin and cinnamon, roasted sweet potato, onion, snow peas, carrot and cucumber, cumin and some chopped up almonds. First make the couscous, then sauté the veggies: done in 5. yeah.
have a great weekend!
