I’ve long been a fan of the serve your own fro-yo bar. From Menchies and Yogurtys to independent frozen kefir shops, I really do love them all. I always order the original / tart flavour. I want that tangy, tart yogurt flavour, and I don’t want it masked. For flavored frozen treats, I’d go for ice cream. I recently have been reading more about our microbiota and the many health benefits of ingesting probiotics. I’ve experimented with sauerkraut, kombucha and kefir and have found them all surprisingly easy and delicious. If you’re having yogurt for health benefits, though, do you really want all the additives and extra sugar that goes into the store-bought varieties? If your answer is no, read on for my homemade tart frozen yogurt recipe!
I like to listen to podcasts. I listen to them before bed, in the car, while I’m getting stuff done around the house. It’s my thing. Lately I’ve gotten into “Surprisingly Awesome,” where Adam Davidson & Adam McKay “reveal the hidden awesomeness in everyday things. Guess what? The podcast is pretty awesome. Last week I was listening to the episode “Broccoli,” and learned that broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, collard greens and kohlrabi are all part of the same plant family brassica oleracea.
Tzatziki is a great summer dip, perfect for crudités or as a condiment for grilled meats. This one is Greek yogurt based, and comes together in about 5 minutes. It might seem daunting to make, but it is honestly so easy and impressive. Make it and enjoy it with pretty much anything!
This lentil dip / salsa speaks for itself. I like to serve it with Tostitos Scoops as a snack or an easy appetizer. Its also good on its own over quinoa or greens, to make a light lunch.
I flew home from Dublin yesterday, and took this granola in glass containers to eat on the plane. I bought some milk in the airport to take with me. Best plane food ever. It travels so well and kept me satisfied until I got home.
A few summers ago, I was introduced to the watermelon-mint-feta flavour combination. I love it! Its so fresh and summery. I had my last exam of medical school today, and I feel like a little kid on the last day of school! I needed something to kick start my summer break (which ends at the beginning of July).
What do these two smoothies have in common? They taste the exact same. One with spinach, one without. Just put it in!
I love guacamole. Who doesn’t? I love it so much that sometimes I find eating it with other people stressful because I want to savour it but I’m afraid that they will eat it all if I don’t dive in. First world problems.
