Yesterday I intended to post in “What I Ate Wednesday” style…and then I realized my commute was catching up to me and that I left my camera cord in Seattle by mistake! So I dug into my “Emergency Backup Recipe Stash” and pulled out this deliciousness to share:
1 bunch fresh kale
3 oz raw pecorino romano (sheep cheese!)
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp olive oil
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Remove kale leaves from stems and discard stems (or save them for your juicer). Shred cheese. Place all ingredients in food processor and blend to your desired pesto consistency.
I ate mine on lettuce wraps with red bell pepper slices!
I’m home for about 24 hours. I had an appointment today but it’s back to Arizona tomorrow for another day on call. I realized last night how much I’d missed my cat-friend (he totally missed me too) and this morning how much I missed my rebounder! I miss Britney all the time so there was no realization there.
Today I’m taking a cue from Megan, who’s “What I Ate” posts have been so enjoyable and inspiring, and I’m sharing my day’s eats with you.
This morning I had around 32 ounces of herbal teas in various flavors. Acai Berry and Mint were both on the menu along with a Dr. Ohira’s probiotic.
By early afternoon I was quite ravenous and after I dropped Britney at work I headed to the Whole Foods Jamba Juice for a 16 ounce carrot juice. Probably not organic but it worked in a pinch.
While at Whole Foods I picked up ingredients to make 32 more ounces of carrot-kale-romaine juice for later. I added a few drops of chocolate stevia and split it into 2 servings.
Bell peppers were on sale so I went colorful for dinner. A big bowl of these chopped up with arugula, about 5 ounces of shredded Zamarano Mitica (a raw sheep cheese), minced raw garlic, and a meyer lemon-stevia dressing.
Post-dinner I broke off a little under 3 ounces from my ONE POUND Trader Joe’s dark chocolate bar. I didn’t photograph it but it was eaten completely melted. Absolutely delicious.
And that folks, is a pretty standard day at The Vegetable Centric Kitchen
