Strawberry Coconut Chia Pudding

Yesterday I discovered coconut cream.  I actually bought it months ago at a health food store (I shouldn’t be left alone in a health food store, there are so many things I want to try!  I feel like they on purpose put everything good right at my eye level.  It’s bad.).  Anyway, naturally I was immensely pleased with my purchase and proceeded to put it in my cupboard and not think about it again until yesterday when I caught a glimpse of the back of my cupboard for the first time since I moved here.

Mexican Quinoa Salad

Remember how I said I love all foods Mexican?  I wasn’t kidding.  I actually can’t get enough.  Side note: am I the only one who will fixate on one specific dish and want to eat it every single day for three months and then needs a serious break from it?  My current fixation is this salad.

Coconut Black Rice Pudding

I saw a recipe for Black Rice Pudding with coconut & banana in At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen a while back, bought the black rice, put it in my cupboard and promptly forgot about it.  I didn’t make the recipe before for 2 reasons;  (1) it only uses half a can of coconut milk which is so annoying because what am I supposed to do with the other half?  (2) it needs to simmer for an hour on the stovetop.  Well, now I am sitting at my kitchen table all day anyway, and decided no one is here stopping me from using the whole dang can.  Lol I said dang.  I’m trying to keep it clean, ok?

Blueberry Almond Chia Pudding

Hands up anyone who has seen a million recipes for chia pudding but still hasn’t made it.  Today is the day.  Inspired by a recipe from Deliciously Ella’s cookbook, and several others from around the web, this will keep you satisfied until lunch.  I actually find if I’m eating breakfast too late, I can’t have it or else it will throw off my whole eating schedule because I won’t want lunch until its almost dinner.  It doesn’t make me feel super FULL, just really satisfied.  Its weird.  But in a good way.  If you put it in a transportable container, you can just grab it and go in the morning.

Victory Bread Croutons

I’ve been making Victory Bread for years, so why did I only think to make it into croutons recently?  Whatever the reason, it was a major breakthrough.  I love croutons on a salad, especially Caesar, and have missed them a bit since I started avoiding heavily processed grains.  Now I’ve got my crunch back.
