{whatever wednesday – some delicious sandwiches i’ve eaten recently}

31 Jul

so, right now i’m cleansing… and all i want to do today {my day “3”} is eat a friggin sandwich!  i’m craving carbs and dairy most, which is usually how it goes in the beginning.

it’s all good.

so since i’m not eating them right now, i figured i’d virtually live through eating them again… since lately i fotograph everything before i eat it… even if i’m not intending to use it for the blog.

{meatless mondays : rainbow quinoa w/ volcanic garlic and heirloom tomatoes}

quinoa dishes are great for many reasons.  one thing i love about them is they are great served hot or cold.  quinoa is a wonderful source of protein and it is even a complete protein which means it contains all 9 essential amino acids.  this makes it particularly good for vegans or vegetarians.  i also love quinoa because i find it sustains my active body for a good while.

i whipped up a quick batch to take to lunch for a few days using my amazing volcanic garlic, 1/2 a sweet onion, and 1 medium beautiful heirloom tomato.   Continue reading

{organic golden kiwi}

22 Jul

goldenkiwi-1

golden kiwis are not the same as regular green kiwis you see in the stores….. i mean, of course they aren’t, right?! – they’re being featured on food & foto 😉

originating in china, golden kiwis are now mostly from new zealand, and they blow regular kiwi out of the water!  {sorry, kiwi}

their thin skin is different from the regular kiwi – smooth and hairless with little freckles throughout.  they ripen just like regular kiwi, so look for one that slightly gives to the tender touch…

goldenkiwi-2

the flavour is similar, but the golden kiwi boasts a less-acidic quality and taste. they have almost a pineapple flavour… and i just LOVE THEM!!! Continue reading
