Our antidote for our overindulgence with bread today, a quick and easy root vegetable soup. Simmer chopped carrots, turnips and celery in a chicken broth base, when tender add green onions and bok choy, season with black pepper and miso paste. We like lots of black pepper, a well known antioxidant and anti inflammatory. SomeContinue reading “What’s for dinner-February 3, 2021”
If you plan to work like a farmer you get to eat like a farmer. I have a physical work day today, so am loading up on protein and fat: soy powder shake with bananas, strawberries, beet powder and coconut cream. Dave’s raisin bread French toast with one slice of bacon (two halves). The smallContinue reading “Farmer breakfast-February 3, 2021”
A nice twist on grilled grouper with bacon and scallions served with al dente broccoli and a smidge of mashed potatoes and a bite of sweet corn. A fresh green salad and some citrus add antioxidants and fiber. Fresh flowers make this colorful table complete.
A heart healthy breakfast starts with a fruit and soy protein shake with coconut cream. Oatmeal has soluable fiber, and blueberries help lower blood pressure. Add some homemade granola with almonds for a little crunch to complete this hearty breakfast on a cold Florida morning.
On the run today, omelettes are quick and easy. Add some fruit and raw vegetables; always have something on your plate pulled from the earth. I mashed avocado on my toast for some nice fat energy. On my way to work!
Leftovers again. Deconstructed pizza with roasted cauliflower, roasted eggplant, quinoa, Kalamata olives, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Lots of raw vegetables saved the day.
I’ve been to the Dali a few times and I understand that it’s one of our special attractions here in St. Pete, but I’m really not a fan. I dutifully take visitors that have an interest and I thought I’d seen all that I cared to see. Today we took some friends from North CarolinaContinue reading “Day at the Dali”
A nice tray of smoked salmon demands a snack supper, assembly required. Trader Joe’s fig and olive crackers and Wasa gluten free crackers provided a sturdy base for cream cheese, avocado, and some crunchy cucumber slices. The Foppen brand of smoked salmon comes with a sweet mustard dill sauce. The cherry tomatoes added more colorContinue reading “What’s for dinner-January 25,2021”
I wandered into Books at Park Place , https://goo.gl/maps/SDtrHbakFJtvpsm68, in South Pasadena on Saturday, a new independent bookseller with a friendly atmosphere. The gentlemen behind the desk seemed to be the owner and offered suggestions without being obsequious. I was moved to support this nice small business and paid more than Amazon price for theContinue reading “Book review-On Writing by Stephen King”
Waste not, want not. Today we had leftovers for breakfast and dinner. For breakfast, all the leftover fruit from last night went into the protein shake. For dinner, we recycled chicken Franchese, quinoa updated with diced carrots and sauteed onions, roasted cauliflower, zucchini, a redundant bit of baked potato, all a little tired but refreshedContinue reading “What’s for dinner-January 21, 2021”
