With the farmers market available to me this time of year, I must confess that I sometimes end up with a fridge so chock full of greens that I can’t always get to eating everything.
A beautiful head of organic bok choy looked at me sadly yesterday and said “what about me?”
In comes left over soup……..
Sauteed half an onion in some evoo (low heat), then added a sliced up head of bok choy.
After that cooked together for a bit I added about 2 cups of chicken broth. Brought it to a boil and than added the remainder of fresh arugula I had in the fridge. Simmered for about 10 minutes and then pureed it in the food processor. When serving add a dollop of sour cream or a splash of heavy cream. The 2 flavors combine very very well. As to spices, I added some oregano, paprika, Italian herb seasoning and thyme before the broth started boiling.
I tried…….I finished it to quickly. 😉
Low acid tomatoes? Well they are yellow, and I’m not sure why they call them low acid. They have a nice mellow taste. Maybe an added selling feature. They abound at the farmers market.
Avocado, yellow tomato, spring onion,evoo, splash of lemon juice and some fresh ground pepper.
Enjoy the day!
Take a look at his blog. The last post about the greatest exercise machine of all is a must read.
It’s a nice way to put yourself through a quick evaluation. How do you stack up???
Due to flexibility issues (I’m working on them, trust me) I can’t yet pull off a quality one legged pistol. I fared real well on the rest of the exercises.
My only input to his article is that you can get even better results in my opinion if you add additional weight to body exercises. Nothing like weighted dips or weighted pull ups etc.
I’ll post the picture from the crock pot meal here;
Last night before going to bed, I got the crockpot going. Garlic cloves, evoo, carrots, remaining 2 pounds of the beef chuck shoulder clod, turkey sausage and a Black Hawk stout.
Woke up to a wonderful smelling house this morning and breakfast was ready.
Blogger won’t let me upload pics at the moment, so pic to follow.
Lately I’ve been reading Cave Cooking. I wanted to share it with you and have put a link on the right. The writing skills are just superb!!!! Witty and smart. Take a looksie if you have the time.
Want some more unbelievable writing and well researched information?
Take a look at At Darwin’s Table. This is a fantastic blog with great food pictures and recipes for us paleo/primal eaters. What I really like about this blog, is some of the different scientific angles and thoughts he brings up. Bottom line GREAT stuff.
Have a wonderful day everyone!!
Just finished up a small weekend tennis tournament.
Yours truly won both the men’s singles and the men’s doubles.
I’m sure most of you read Keith’s amazing blog. He talks often about working out in a fasted state. I’ve found that playing tennis in a fasted/ somewhat hungry state has me playing at my best. I started my first match Friday afternoon at 5. Last meal was breakfast around 11:30. That consisted of a piece of grilled fish with veggies. This was a fairly large portion.
I did not eat after the 2 hour match, nor the rest of the evening.
The next morning, my first match was at 9. I was done around 11. Now I was starting to get hungry. By 11:30 I was sitting outside a local Spanish tapas restaurant. I think they looked at me a little funny as I proceeded to order the whole left side of the menu 😉
Well, not exactly but this is what I had. Gamba’s a la plancha. Whole shrimp sauteed in olive oil and spices. (about 12-15 medium sized shrimp, heads and all), Sausage in some type of olive oil.
A plate of imported serano ham, chorizo and pork loin. and last but not least white anchovies in garlic sauce. After the meal I took my picnic blanket and laid in the grass in the park, in the sun
for a nice snooze. Later that afternoon I played my next match. I didn’t eat again until the following morning early. I had a bacon and onion omelet. Then a few hours after that played my last match of the weekend.
Have any of you ever tried something like this?
Breakfast this morning was at my desk.
Plum tomato, little bit of onion, one and half an avocado and three boiled eggs. Drizzle of evoo and some fresh cracked pepper.
Next post coming up for my friend SOG. “Grandma’s Salad Dressing”
