Finally here, in my garden and on my plate…
Hello My friends,
Yes, you heard me right.
After heavy Easter meals, lots of leftovers and sweets during a week my tummy went on strike yesterday. I didn’t feel well since then so I decided to come back to the basics. I made a simple quiche for my lunch. It’s not a first time (try this one or this one), it is one of these meals that just brings some comfort to your tummy. I decided to use “my friend” crock pot to help me with it. Instead of making it really crispy – I made this quiche extra soft. Which tastes delicious for me.
You will need:
1 cup (or more if you wish) already cooked spaghetti squash
1 c of organic spinach
a handful of cherry tomatoes
1 small zuccini
1/2 crumbled goat cheese
spices of your choice
Mix everything in a bowl.Make sure you will grease your crock pot with some coconut oil. Place the mixture in a crock pot and put it on High for 2,5 h. Serve with some avocado or a hot sauce or with both (if you are like me;)
The real verdict will be made when Tom gets home. He is quite picky but I think he will enjoy is as much as I did.
Have a Happy&Sunny Weekend Everyone,
I am sooo behind with my food updates, let’s just quickly go over these delicious babies of mine.
Green smoothie is a must here: spinach, celery, 1/2 apple, banana, 1-2 dates
Walnut taco on a gluten free wrap+avocado, kale, asparagus and other veggies (and hot sauce of course)
Collard wraps with some hummus and since I had nothing else at home some basic veggies
I did not capture my daily desserts but be sure that they are a huge part of my day.
Do I really eat wraps so often?
Am I addicted to Taco ????Whaaaaaaaaaat
This is what you get when you look at your meals. Maybe I am a taco lover right now. I think these spices just warm me up. The interesting thing is that each time I am sitting at the table to eat I am so excited like I wouldn’t eat it for a long time. That’s not bad I guess;)))
Anyway, I am rushing to work, now you tell me what;s on your plate recently?
On Saturday after my work we went to the Yoga Conference to see what’s happening this year. Since I was taking another training on Sunday ( this will be coming soon)I didn’t take any specific workshop at the Yoga Show but I love even to go there to wonder around.
You can always see interesting people. Can you spot Seane Corn on the stage? I admire her work so much
Sadie Nardini was next.
And we finished our trip At Fresh of course
while I was enjoying my carbs in the Goddess Bowl Tom ordered a burrito.
And a lovely trip back home
I will be back soon. I have so much to tell you,
How was your weekend? Mine was busy but super fun. We visited our friends and spent some time there playing with the kids, talking, laughing and eating. On Sunday we went to my favorite place here -to see the lake, Sofi got a nice long walk and and my hubby got some delicious fish for dinner=perfect weekend.
What are you up to this week?
How is your week so far?
I am trying to take it easy…
so far the only activity was walking the dog this morning. But I need to say it was pretty refreshing.
I am still trying to follow my new diet to heal my gut so on today’s menu: Vegan Tempeh crock pot dish
You will need:
1 block of tempeh & any veggies you would like
Marinate tempeh in 1 tbsp of gluten free Tamari, 1 tsp turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes.
Place on the bottom of your crock pot, add 1tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/2 c organic vegetable broth, and add remaining chopped veggies: celery, red. orange pepper; zucchini, asparagus, some garlic, kale leafs, parsley, carrots you name it. Cover and cook on High for 4 h. Sit down on the couch and relax.
I love my new friend (crock pot). The funny thing is that I didn’t know it even exists until my Chinese medicine guy told me about it. Meat, veggies everything is so tender and you don’t have to spend so much time in your kitchen. The only concern I have is that I can easily eat all my dish by myself. It’s so easy and I don’t feel so full after. So be careful;)!!!
After 4 hours it’s done. I added some fresh herbs, avocado and nutritional yeast, and maybe a little bit of hot sauce.
Enjoy and let me know how you like it.
