Some like it BURNT…
Some like it HOT…
Some like it LUKEWARM…
Some like it COLD…
Anddd some like it FROZEN.
In fact, I love it frozen. Today was a prime example of my love for these icy treats.
Post morning workout, I had a Green Titanic, which as you know is frozen.
For breakfast I had overnight oats, All-American style. I used frozen strawberries–slightly thawed only to make them easier to slice.
Clockwise from top: jalapeño hummus, spinach-artichoke hummus, smashed avocado. Topped with dried herbs and nutritional yeast.
The bananas were ripening faster than we could eat them…
…so as punishment, they were chopped up and sent to the freezer for future consumption. Muahah I know I’m cruel and selfish, but this girl can’t live without her bininis, aka frozen bananas. No innuendos intended.
Neither can she live without frozen papayas, her new favorite snacklet.
I was on a roll, so I decided to try my hand at some frozen yogurt (agave, almond butter, cinnamon, pinch of sea salt, unsweetened coconut, cacao nibs). I was trying to mimic peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough.
Looks okay, tastes disgusting. It had an unpleasant sour taste, some parts very salty due to large chunks of sea salt (my fault). Major fail. Greek yogurt and a crappy sea salt grinder do not produce good fro-yo, folks. It was edible though, so I guilted myself into eating it.
By dinner, I had not yet recovered from my atrocious frozen food flop. I comforted myself with a medley of roasted veggies and a steamed sweet corn-on-the-cob.
Clockwise: green beans, eggplant, onion, tomato. Laced with sprinkles of dried herbs and nooch for added protein.
The green beans, eggplant, and tomato were all from our backyard garden.
I’ll admit that veggies are the one thing I prefer fresh over frozen.
After dinner, I headed out to catch a movie with a couple girlfriends. Nothing frozen here, but “Inception” did leave me with chills.
Questions: Do you like your fruit frozen? I have the habit of popping all kinds of fruit into the freezer. It takes longer to eat it and thus makes the experience more fun. (One thing I would not recommend freezing is kiwis with their skin still on… *cough*) Have you ever made frozen yogurt without a machine? Today was my first time and it was totally on a whim, so I prepared myself for the worst. The worst did come. What’s your staple bread? I always buy the Eli Zabar health bread from Costco for convenience and price, but I would love to try the much-hyped Ezekiel 4:9. Speaking of hype, have you watched “Inception”? Some of us were a bit late watching it for the first time today. I don’t mind it though. Watching movies a few weeks after its premiere usually means an emptier and quieter audience at the theatre.
