raw avocado sprout wrap – filling veggies & foodie penpals

  • 1 whole, ripe avocado
  • 2 large collard green leaves
  • Handful of sprouts
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 medium garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp oil
  • Pumpkin seeds – bought in bulk, very cheap

Happy October, y’all. Today I’m especially excited to share my Foodie Penpal package, for the first of the month!

FPP - Lyndi

My sweet penpal Lyndi from The Journey gave me a thoughtful collection of fun foods: Wasabi & Soy Sauce almonds, Larabar Cherry Pie bar, TWO packets of Justin’s nut butter (not pictured: maple almond! ate it right away), Organic Pure & Simple Pomegranate Oatmeal, and a sweet guacamole recipe with mix included. Thanks again Lyndi, the whole package was so much fun to open and try! By the way, Lyndi puts up creative recipes and a Monday Motivation every week, so go check her out. If you want to participate in the monthly exchange, Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean has a super quick, easy sign-up.

This recipe is something my heart glows to share: avocado sprout wrap. Every ingredient is just singing with nutrients.

By the way, if you want a sweet topper for any wrap or sammich, here’s a simple template, with instructions at the end*:

Savory Green Pea Basil Soup! - BlogHer

Sunday, August 5, 2012

savory basil green pea soup, raw — back from blogher!

  • 2 cups green peas – frozen ones work too
  • 8 large basil leaves — 1/4 cup cut
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 long green onions
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • extra basil for garnish!

What a weekend! Had a brilliant time at BlogHer ’12 — which is basically a gargantuan conference celebrating all women who blog. In contrast to bonding over food at Nourished, it was interesting to meet ladies from all different topic areas! I never knew what the next blogger I met would be passionate about.

I met some amazing ladies (and gents). The sweetest people, and I’m excited to have new blogs to read up on. Check out their Twitter handles, and join in conversation:

  • Amy‏ @everydaydinners
  • Bay ‏@queenmotherblog
  • Catherine @weelicious
  • CJ @cjbruce
  • Emily @eshomemaker
  • Jennifer‏ @decaporter
  • Karla @karlatrotman
  • Katie @SheLikesRuffles
  • Kimberly‏ @RotterWrites
  • Laura @Mom_Mart
  • Lori @LoriDCrooks
  • SociallyActive @Socially_Active
  • Megan @IRun4Wine
  • Meredith ‏ @meredithphares
  • Stacey @Spellbinders
  • Una‏ @sassycurmudgeon
  • Along with meeting the conference-goers, I loved hearing the speakers tell about their success, all built from scratch. It’s a blessing how easy technology makes it to share your passion, whether it’s food, politics, or parenting — and I encourage you to take up a blog of your own. It opens the door to learning, meeting new people who share your interest, and expressing yourself better.


    chunky monkey vegan bites

    chunky monkey vegan bites – gotta love bananas & nut butter

    • 3 medium bananas
    • ⅓ cup raw almond butter
    • 1 cup dried coconut
    • 2 Tbsp chia seeds

    Apparently peanut butter is a very American food. I asked my boyfriend if he liked Ants on a Log, and he looked at me like I was crazy (er…even crazier than he knows I am). A little background – he’s first-generation American, and his parents are traditional Dominican-Republicans. But come on, that’s a staple! (No…?! I’ll tease him about it anyway.)

    In my opinion it’s one of our greatest inventions here besides the cotton gin and Modern Family (oh my goodness, I love that show). And thankfully my dad taught me how to make it ridiculously better – just add a banana. I remember the very first time I had it: my five-year-old self gave Dad a crazy face as he carefully mashed two bananas into a bowl, swirling in my favorite nut butter. Then he handed me a spoonful, and I died right there.

    sweet chia puddin'

    Saturday, July 21, 2012

    sweet cinnamon chia puddin’ – raw, or delicious just plain if you want

      makes one serving
    • 1¼ cup raw almond milk – regular works just fine, too
    • 1/4 cup chia seeds
    • 1 tsp raw honey
    • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • dried or fresh fruit
    • + extra toppings!

    I got this sweet idea from a restaurant around the Park Slope area, Sun in Bloom. Fresh, airy, and relaxed atmosphere – not to mention delicious, raw food. Last night I was starving, drenched in rain, and tired, but a small dinner in there warmed me right up.

    I was too full for dessert, but I noticed they serve raw chia pudding! Sweet deal. Not gonna lie, half the reason I like eating out is get inspiration through new recipe ideas. Does anyone else do that? Anyway, I picked up some raw almonds on the way home, and sprouted them for pudding today.

    sprouted almonds!

    (the almonds are sprouted when you see the sweet little white spot at the end)
