Precious heirlooms

I haven’t blogged about my eats in a loooooong time. I really wanna get this blog back on track with discussing food and sharing recipes, so without further ado, I present to you…my lunch. Thrilling, I know.

But I was certainly thrilled to come across a big glorious pile of heirloom tomatoes at Whole Foods yesterday, all piled up like jewels in a treasure chest. The colors, patterns, and irregular shapes are a feast for the eyes. I especially love the ones with lots of ridges and pleats, like a shiny swatch of silk tucked and pinned around a soft globe.

Pretty heirlooms

I sliced up one of the purple-tinted ones over a tartine of smashed avocado sprinkled with dulse flakes. I like to say tartine because it sounds fancier than open-faced sandwich. 😉

Heirloom and avocado tartine

I salted the tops and cracked over some black pepper and served them with a donut peach and kombucha. I know it looks small, but I tend to eat lunch in two phases. I’ll probably have some goat’s milk yogurt with peanut butter protein granola later.

OMG these tomatoes are so good! And this is coming from someone who typically does not enjoy raw tomatoes. But these are so sweet and juicy that I’m reminded that tomatoes are actually a fruit. And they’re not mealy or watery like so many tomatoes are. Totally worth the Whole Foods price tag.

Have you ever had an heirloom tomato?

Are there and veggies you can only eat cooked/don’t enjoy raw?


“Sausage” and onions pita

Check out my masterpiece…

Awesome lunch! This pita was stuffed with whole grain mustard, arugula, bleu cheese, and sauteed onions and vegetarian sausage.

These were Field Roast grain sausages. I think the flavor was apple and sage or something like that, I threw away the packaging and their website doesn’t seem to list flavors.

I cut up a link and sauteed it with about a quarter of an onion (I’ve told you I love onions right?)

It was quick and simple. I just stuffed everything in a whole wheat pita pocket and dug in!

Love it!

Properly fueled to face the cold for more Christmas shopping. 😛


Bright eats for a gloomy weekend

We’ve been kinda lazy this weekend. The weather’s been gray and gloomy, perfect for staying indoors and vegging out.

Speaking of vegging, I’ve been more inspired to make delicious and veggie-filled meals with all the time on my hands being stuck here in the house. It’s been snowing flurries all day and that’s enough to make me throw any plans I had out the window but inevitably get bored and start cooking. Yeah, that’s how I entertain myself.

Here’s some tasty things I’ve been munching on lately…

Sweet chili tofu, chinese long beans and shiitake stir-fry, little piece of Jeff's salmon

Nanner with maple almond butter and pecans

Check out the amazing sandwich I made for lunch today…

I roasted a piece of red pepper and two slices of onion. One side of the bread had pesto, pepperoncini, and arugula; the other had herb mayo, smashed avocado, and seaweed flake.

So good together!

Later in the afternoon I got bored and made a smoothie. I haven’t had one in a long time because it’s really cold in our apartment so I always want to eat something warm.

But I had this bunch of dinosaur kale to use up…

So I put it in the blender with a banana, some spinach, maca, cocoa, and hemp milk…

And came out with this!

Tastes really yummy, but I wish I had a high-speed blender so I could get it truly smooth. It’s not that fun to chew a smoothie.

I think now I might go whip up an apple crumble. I have a tub full of crumble topping in my freezer leftover from the last time I made one.

Bring on the sweets!
