Cool things going on around here. Cool things, cool things.
For one, Natalie is here now! Yayyyyy.
And even better than the fact that Natalie is here is the fact that she brought something verrrrryy special (just kidding by the way, Natalia).
For those of you who do not know how monumental this is, let me some it up:
Industrial. Strength. Blender. Lifetime warranty. One of the most powerful badboys on the market. And it’s allllllll
mine ours. :)
This morning I broke in that puppy with a massive smoothie bowl. Nat worked at an acai bowl place so she taught me how serious the smoothie bowl business it. If you’re going to be eating a smoothie out of a bowl, it’s going to have to be reallllly thick & creamy. Only the Vita can do that job. (Great for banana soft serve by the way.)
Smoothie: Frozen strawberries, frozen banana, rice milk, flax seed, fresh squeezed orange juice.
Topper: (Here we go) granola, chia seeds, banana, coconut shreds, almonds, goji berries, honey, and bee pollen from Farmer’s Market.
So I got a little excited and then ran out of time to actually eat it before work so it ended up being a smoothie in a jar and just as delicious.
In other exciting news, I was recently able to Make My Man Eat Plants.
Tempeh Tamale Pie. Courtesy of Mama Pea. Loved, loved, loved this recipe and will be making it again and again.
Also, little does Mama Pea know that by teaching me how to make my man eat plants, she’s actually has actually unlocked the secret of how to make my man make me ice cream sundaes. :) Lucky me but I can’t take the credit for that recipe!
And in other other exciting news…
S.L.O. Foodie is going to be a published blog on Foodbuzz.com! Cool deal right? I just need my #*%$@ printer to work so it will scan the documents I have signed.
But my shiny new badge should be on its way shortly. :)
