Do you ever go through phases with food? Like, you try something for the first time and ended up loving it so much that you have the same thing for the next three days?If so, I’m with you my friend. But, hey stick with what you know! Variety is the spice of life, but sometimes a classic combo can’t be beat. Here’s what I’ve been obsessed with as of late:
1. Broiled Grapefruit
I’m a devoted grapefruit fan, but oh my goodness, the texture of a broiled grapefruit? Heaven. I switch things up by sometimes by adding cinnamon and banana slices on top. I set my broiler on high and broil the grapefruit for about 6-7 minutes – just when the natural sugars start caramelizing and turns brown. The perfect snack or addition to your meals!
2. Peas and Edamame
What is it with peas and edamame lately for me? I just love tossing it into everything for every meal. The textures makes a perfect addition to salads or as side dishes, making them super versatile. I usually just steam both and toss it in a little lemon juice and go at it – so fresh and satisfying!
3. Everything But the Kitchen Sink Bowls of Stuff
To be perfectly honest, I’m a pretty lazy cook most days! That and with a college student schedule, I’m always on the go or busy with schoolwork – which is why I LOVE just tossing a bunch of things into a [mixing] bowl and calling it a day. I’m all for a blend of different flavors and textures – which is why I always have so many things going on in these superfood bowls. But seriously, when are they going to make me a salad bowl big enough to hold all my food? I like mixing bowls and all, but I’m seriously looking for cuter kitchenware. If you every find one, please mail me one. I will pay you in baked goods. [you know you want baked goods.]
4. Tropical Fruits
Summer is my favorite season – and the beautiful spring weather now is just getting me excited for summer time! Not only is my birthday in the summer, but I’m also less pale and it’s always bright outside. AND it’s totally the season of all fruits. Cherries, watermelon, kiwis – I can go all day long. So, bring on summer and put a fresh coconut in my hands. That is all.
5. Avocado Toast
A beautiful classic pairing – mashed avocado on toast. I love pairing it with eggs or grape tomatoes. Lately, I have also been digging crisp fuji apple slices on top as well. I’m not the biggest bread eater, but when I do eat it, I usually go for Ezekiel sprouted grain bread. Crunchy, creamy, savory, and packed with healthy fats and vitamins. Happy taste buds, happy body!
