As a result of my recent trip to the Fruit and Vegetable market as narrated here, I now have a fridge overflowing with carrots, aubergines, tomatoes and okras.
Prepped my salads with a bedding of arugula topped with sliced apple, chinese pear and carrot and walnut. Will add the oranges and the tomatoes later to prevent the salad from becoming too moist.
Just found out I didn’t have to peel my carrots before putting in the juicer. And that’s the part I really hate-peeling. But I’ll be having fresh carrot juice everyday for this week- yummm… still trying to find other veggies to add… I don’t really want to put oranges because I just don’t feel like it.
I planned to make tomato sauce with most of the tomatoes we bought. I am the only pasta eater at home. DH likes the typical Pinoy food with steamed rice. So I usually have pasta for lunch when I am all alone. I don’t mind, I don’t like sharing my pasta anyway. 🙂
I baked my tomatoes in the oven for an hour, with garlic and onions, checking every 20 minutes and mashing. Then I let it cool and pureed it in the blender. Added salt and pepper to taste. Didn’t put it on the stove top because I have an induction cooker and I cant seem to control the temperature with that.
Breakfast now is a bit revamped with strawberries added to my cereal. I usually have the Nestle Fitness cereals because its whole grain. I’m pretending to be diet conscious like that. I also add walnuts. Don’t you love walnuts?
Been drinking carbonated water to ease the coca cola cravings. Added strawberries for a little flavor. It didn’t help but at least I get picture worthy arrangements out of it.
I’m a bit crazy on the fruits and vegetables right now. Makes me want to live in a farm and grow my own!
