Hi friends! I hope you had a good week and weekend! Mine was interesting to say the least--- good things and bad things. But if I learned anything this year it's that the bad moments are just things that open doors for change to bring in new things. Like this whole health thing--- it obviously sucked for so many reasons, but now I've fully embraced all the food and life changes that have come from it. Sure, I wish wine was magically good for me so it could be a better part of my life, but I mean, whatever, hand me a tea ;) Anyway, I'll ramble later--- this post is about the yummy or weird or interesting food Marlowe eats ;) Happy monday, friends!
veggie fried (brown) rice with tofu (in the cookbook! ps. thank you thank you for all of you guys supporting me. I was SO nervous, but it's been such a fun experience!)
we found a GF pizza crust at Whole Foods that was only made with rice! Thats it! Packaged things are typically filled with so much garbage-- obviously! But this one was JUST RICE! I wish I could remember the brand to share it with you guys. It was a bit chewy--- but that might have been my fault, I think I timed it wrong and pulled it out 4 minutes too early. Topped with leftover sauce and cashew cheese. Eaten at the counter while I cut and roast all my veggies for a few days :)
Marlowe on a noodle date with Cameron-- her boyfriend. aka the only other person in the cookbook who is not Alex, Marlowe, or myself haha. It's like we magically have an extra child-- we'll take him! (he's on page 206 if you want to see ;)
Said noodles. in a veggie broth with tofu, peas, cabbage, carrots, and some other veggies.
tomato soup with veggies and white beans /side of kale chips.
same leftover tomato soup simmered down a bit with brown rice pasta.
tortilla chips, a pureed black bean dip, + guacamole (guac guac-camole)
we do a lot of early morning smoothies. Their super fast, she loves them, it's a win for everyone. A few of our favorite are in the book--- there's a whole section actually!
miso broth with loads of seaweed, spinach, peas, and carrots / side of kale chips + nutritional yeast.
still trying to get her to love warm oatmeal-- we do a lot of cold overnight oatmeals-- which are great, obviously, but it would be nice to heat up a bowl of oatmeal for her while I make mine and Alex's. I'm going to try a few new ones for her this week and see how it goes. Mine is a roasted pumpkin oatmeal (with papaya on top, cause whatever)
Less and less I enjoy going out to eat-- unless it's an indian place-- I'm always questioning all the ingredients and everything-- but we still do it from time to time of course. We usually opt for an Asian restaurant when we have Marlowe-- it seems to have the most options she likes-- spring rolls, summer rolls, miso soups, salad with ginger dressing, tofu, rice, etc etc.
a rutabaga and butternut squash soup with a side of avocado toast and black beans. She was nut super happy about this soup-- I dont blame her, the butternut squash was sort of meh-- but she ate it.
Again, happy monday friends. Thanks for being here!
