It rained for a good portion of the night here, last night, and then suddenly it stopped. Well, this morning we woke up to snow everywhere! It’s a beautiful sight. We do get snow at our house in the winter occassionally but it doesn’t usually stick for too long… Well, as I’m typing this it’s time for me to leave for work and there is no way my car will be making it up our driveway and out to the main road. It’s still snowing now. So, no work for me today! (Yay!!!)
Anyway, in celebration of the snow I decided to make a wintery green smoothie this morning.
1 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard (or Sierra Nevada Stout & Stoneground, which I used)
1/4 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Mix all of the dressing ingredients together in a large salad bowl. (Told you it was easy!)
Add about 6 cups of spinach and/or mixed greens into the bowl. Add in any extras that you would like. I added a couple of handfuls of dried cherries. Creative add ins: pine nuts, pecans, dried fruits, tomatoes, avocados, fresh tangerine slices, have fun with it!
Toss all to combine. Eat. Enjoy. Repeat. Super simple. Super healthy.
I don’t normally eat much meat but when I do, it’s a great cut of meat! And exquisitely cooked, a la Chef Boyfriend.
For dessert, I made a little something I like to call, (well, it tastes pretty close to) Snickerdoodle Balls!
These babies are made with soaked and sprouted buckwheat, cashews, agave, vanilla extract, lucuma powder, cinnamon, stevia, salt, all processed together. Then I rolled them into a ball and had them play in a little cinnamon. I don’t have the exact measurements since I prefer the Taste and Add method. Pretty close to a Snickerdoodle cookie though. Not too sweet but definitely satisfied that after-dinner-sweets craving.
I hope everyone has a warm day and enjoy the snow if you have it!
